Thanks for the fast reply, oh yea definitely a black pair. Also looking at a pair of black wingtips as I already have a pair of cognac colored ones. I don't plan to ever stand up in a wedding again. The last one I did the shoes we had to wear messed my feet up for a month afterwards.

Wow; I'm surprised they were that picky, if you had a medical (or whatever) reason that the shoes weren't good.  I just told my guys black shoes, and it looked just fine.  My brother in law and I were in balmorals, one other guy in derbies, and I don't even know what the best man wore, except it was black.

To my untrained eye, they seem to fit well. I would probably have a tailor take in the waist a little.

 

Aside from the length, yes they look like they fit.  And I'm totally a fan of the snazzy white t-shirt.

Just cos it's casual doesn't mean it has to be cheap. From what I understand it's very well made, but I personally wouldn't spend the money on it. I don't know enough about casual wear to really comment on value though. Mark up obviously has a lot to do with exclusivity though.

The ticket pocket is a more casual touch, and I certainly wouldn't think anyone would think you presumptuous for having one.

To J011yroger,

 

Should I get something done in the shoulder? Or just leave it as it is.

 

Thanks.

Maybe try on one size smaller jacket, and see how it fits in the body?

Otherwise, just let it rip.

This (Hackett) is already their smallest size - 38R. I however have tried 36R at Aquascutum and Jaeger but they both fit too tight in the shoulder.

The shoulders look fine.

Planning on going navy for a wedding, can someone hook me up with an outfit, I can't seem to piece everything together. Maybe a grey HIT suit, white shirt, navy tie, black shoes?

If you want to go navy, I suggest a navy suit. Wear it with a white shirt, black shoes and a wedding tie.

How far off the mark with the nehru jacket. Avoid tie next time?

 

This happened when I was fiddling with the collar.

I have a navy Macclesfield tie. Would you say a two button suit is standard for weddings? Thanks for the input

If you have a finished jacket with surgeons cuffs, is it possible to taper the sleeve so the cuff opening is smaller?

Okay, so my Johnston and Murphy Aragon II tassel loafers just arrived, and I promised I'd post some pictures.  

 

What I'm trying to figure out is if these shoes are actually full-grain leather, as they are advertised on the website (http://www.johnstonmurphy.com/product.aspx?pid=65489&search=aragon).  

 

I don't think I've ever actually seen a full-grain shoe (and if I did then I didn't know) so bear with me..

 

They do look a bit shiny and plasticky (I don't know if they're supposed to look like this), but the leather certainly feels nicer and less "plasticky" than my other shoes - Clarks Chilton Lace - which I happen to know ARE corrected grain.  

 

The evidence:

 

 

 

 

 

 

AppleMark

 

If anyone has any general comments on whether the leather does appear to be full-grain, whether it is good quality leather or just whether the shoe is good in general, please reply.  Thank you.  

 

P.S.  I know you all want to bash J&M - but they were $99, come on!
