YES! I am a homer for labels! Okay, so the shirt cannot be worn with navy blue suit? I think I can make it work but I agree that it just has too much crap going on in the patterns. LML

Used Allen Edmonds seconds for $160. I really want to pull the trigger but I don't have a chance to try them on. I can always sell them, right?

Seems high for used seconds. I usually see things like that go for closer to $100-$125 on eBay.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Seems less than stellar when you can get new seconds for $200 - $240, sometimes less.

Any name for a coat or blazer that is unfinished on the ends and have the seams facing out?

Unwatchable?

?

I think it looks great and was just curious if it had a specific term. The item itself is unique and not for everyone.

Link to help clarify.

Should I go with a medium cutaway?

Cutaway of any sort is a tad extreme for a job interview. Go with something like a medium spread.

Actually, just looked at Modern Tailor. What they call "Cut Away" is what I would call a medium spread collar, which would be appropriate. The "Wide Spread" they have listed is pretty close to what a cutaway really is. It's wider than a spread, not narrower.

Also, for the amusement of the forum folk, this was the first result on google for "cutaway collar". Talk about overdoing it...



It is, however, a very nice example of a cutaway collar.

Would this suit coat work as a jacket? Marked as a suit on the inside tag...so thats why I am calling it an orphan.
Zegna Su Misura, and seems to fit me nicely....thoughts?

post #22347 of 29118
I think it would. Not optimal, but the fabric is casual enough.

I agree with PB - yes.  But I would suggest (as usual) changing the buttons for more contrasting colours e.g. brown, to make it even more casual and separate: although the fabric is casual, the style is typical suit, so I think this little touch would make all the difference.

It looks like the buttons are already a light brown tortoise
