Styleforum Top Pickspost #22682 of 285787/9/13 at 2:20pmQuote:Nope. 1 inch is the more or less standard dress belt width. Although a man with a large waist might upsize that slightly. 1 1/8" isn't unheard of, for example. With 1 1/4" being the very uppermost limit.Wouldn't a 1" be too skinny and weird to wear as a dress belt?
If a really large man wants even wider than that because a 1 1/4" wide belt looks like he's wearing a length of dental floss about his waist, he's better off forgoing a belt all together, and considering options like side adjusters or suspenders. (Which are arguably superior alternatives to a belt even on a small or medium-sized man.)
Something like a 1 3/4" dress belt is simply an oxymoron. Which leads me to believe that sometime soon, some Hollywood celebrity will show up on an awards show, wearing a 2" wide "dress" belt with his too tight, too short suit. And this will mark the beginning of a trend whereby dress belts will grow to absurd size, much as many wristwatches have grown to what are, by traditional standards, utterly grotesque sizes.post #22683 of 285787/9/13 at 3:21pmpost #22684 of 285787/9/13 at 3:23pmpost #22685 of 285787/9/13 at 3:26pmQuote:Originally Posted by suitsandties
I'm a big Mad Men fan and there is one suit in particular that Mr. Draper dons every once in awhile. On his suits' lapel there is, what looks to be, a button hole, but it doesn't have a button across from it. Does anyone know what the point of it is? And if it has a specific name?
Trad staple. Three Roll Two, which means that is a 3 button suit which is designed to have the lapel roll to the second button. There is a button across from it but it is on the back side of the lapel.post #22686 of 285787/9/13 at 3:28pmpost #22687 of 285787/9/13 at 3:32pmpost #22688 of 285787/9/13 at 3:36pmpost #22689 of 285787/9/13 at 3:38pmpost #22690 of 285787/9/13 at 4:04pmQuote:
-most measurements are inexact due to 3-dimensionality of the jacket
-depends on the way the shoulder are expressed (roped, draped, etc)
-your posture , or even merely contracting of muscles can change that widthpost #22691 of 285787/9/13 at 9:16pmDoes anyone here do mtm or bespoke shirts? (rhetorical question, I know the answer) due to my odd proportions I can't wear otr shirts which makes thrifting even harder. if anyone has a reasonably priced mtm or bespoke shirt maker please pm me. also would it be cheaper to buy otr and then have them tailored to fit better? I feel like for that price a mtm or bespoke would be best.post #22692 of 285787/9/13 at 9:27pmQuote:
I would have to agree, watches these days are just becoming ridiculous and I hope that belts don't go the same way.
To be honest I am not much of a fan of belts. I often wear a vest and I don't like the bulge created underneath it by the buckle. Side adjusters are my personal preference.post #22693 of 285787/9/13 at 10:12pmpost #22694 of 285787/10/13 at 6:45amQuote:Originally Posted by aglose
