My question is about the waist: what style should I get: belt loops, no belt loops, or "buckle and strape". Anyone have any experience with this? I will not be using suspenders / braces.

If you are going to wear a waistcoat get side adjusters. If you are just going the 2 piece and like belts go for the belt loops but I would definitely get one or the other.

Although thinner crepe de chine still has the appearance of regular silk. I have only seen scarves and dresses made from it but don't see why it wouldn't make a good pocket square. More of a cotton fan myself and linen can make for an interesting alternative.

What winter climate do you think this coat is suited to? It is 24 oz wool.

Also related question:

Do you think lighter weight flannel pants are suitable to be worn in a climate that often has winter highs in the low 60s?

Re Tapering and Slimming Down of Suit Pants, it's very easy.  I have a sewing machine and do it myself, just got to make sure you balance the adjustments on each side to maintain the balance of the pants (and make sure the crease is still in the middle!).  A tailor should be able to do it without any problems and fairly cheaply.  At the same time you can adjust the length of the leg if necessary.  Remember that you will want a slightly shorter leg if you're tapering pants as the pant will land higher up the foot.

Assuming the single breasted winter coat fits even remotely well, it's probably not possible. It's unlikely that the necessary material is present.

But even if somehow it could be done, you might well get better results, for less money, by simply buying a double breasted coat. (This sort of answer tends to be true when discussing most sorts of major clothing surgery.)

Hi guys,

 

I have a quick question regarding sizing.

 

I normally do a XL in jackets, like outerwear jackets. I have no jackets/blazer in other sizes such as 52/54 which is what I am looking at.

 

I am looking to order some blazers and outerwear jackets from Yoox, and was wondering if I should go for 52 or 54.

Yoox says 52 is XL, I see other places on the internet saying different. I am a bit confused.

 

I am 6'5, not a big chest, semi-wide shoulders. I do a 43" in shirts which normally fits very well. 

 

Do Italian brands normally run smaller than others?

 

I understand it will differ between brands, but what do you think my best option would be to take a guess on when I order?

 

thanks in advance

 

Jonas

Italian brands typically run slim and short. No one here will advocate for you to blindly purchase jackets without you knowing both your personal measurements and the measurements for the jackets you are potentially purchasing.

If any of your current jackets fit you ideally, measure it and record the measurements. If not, a tailor should be sbke to mrasure you for a nominal $10-20 charge. Email Yoox to ask for the measurements on the jackets. If they match, within reason, feel free to purchase.

It takes time to figure this entire process out, and particularly trial and error if you dont own any legitamite jackets in number sizing, not letter. Do not expect your first few jackets, if bought online, to fit perfectly.

Which affiliate vendor is it that makes leather brief cases with the crazy strap opening? I can't seem to find the thread.

 

They may not actually be affiliated but I believe they are.

What comes to your mind when you think of the word metrosexual? Here is what comes to my mind and I've seen it and was somewhat disgusted by it:

Manicure & pedicure

A visit to a freaking dermatologist for a monthly facial treatment

skinny jeans...even skinny pants to go with your already tight suit jacket

laser surgery to get rid of facial hair

go shopping with other dudes and asking them for their opinions

 

These were straight dudes but I do question their manliness.

What possible reason could you have for wanting a dress shirt that stretches? If you even need such a thing, you're buying shirts that are too small.
