post #25531 of 29123
I just bought a suit from Suitsupply (it's this one if anyone is curious) and was wondering if I could get some feedback on whether I should bother with getting my tailor to do anything to the body at all.







Obviously, I'll get the sleeves and pants shortened; but do you think the back needs cleaning up/slimmed or would you not bother?

Thanks

Can I wear a Navy Blazer with blue jeans? Will post pick of the blazer when it arrives.

 

*it is my first blazer. I want to wear the shit out of it.

^^ I often wear jeans with odd jackets....but not with a navy blazer.  It's done, I just personally don't love the blue on blue and a proper navy blazer is just below a suit in terms of formality (more at home with wool pants, tie, etc).  unless you are talking about a blue odd jacket, with non metal buttons then I guess I'd have to see the jacket and jeans together to judge.

Your suit looks fine and masculine the way it is.  One thing that stands out to me is the shoulders, but I woudln't be able to tell you what it is. Overall good fit.

Here is a link for the blazer. It is cotton and "textured" the more I think about it the more... Picked it up for  110 at BR.  I also picked up this one. Its wool and gray.

I don't dress to that point. I think the closes right now is black jeans and button up shirts. Maybe too soon for a blazer/jacket?

 

I purchased some teal pants and am looking into some versatile colored khakis.

That is much different than what I'd consider a navy blazer.  Wear it with jeans if you like and enjoy.

Anyone have any opinion on what might be causing this damage to my jacket?  This is on the inside of the coat on the right side, behind the buttons.

Bump!

I'm not sure but it looks like lint or is that speck in the jacket itself?  Do you sit with it rubbing against anything while wearing it?

How forgiving is sizing for driving mocs?

 

never worn anything like them before but thinking of ordering a pair of Andy Toms. They only seem to come in standard widths and whole sizes. Is this because their as easy to fit as sneakers or should i be shopping around more? (in aus so i can't really try anything on, all shoe purchases online)

Happy new year! What would be the best way to get some dried mud stains off a pair of Brooks Milano pants (tan)?

My experience (with Tods) is that they are very forgiving at least if we are talking the ones with rubber pebble sole (or whatever it's called). I'd size down a half size if in bettween sizes.

Cool, thanks for the feedback. Yeah, the right shoulder is a combination of my right being lower than my left and having a different sleeve pitch. It's not enough for me to worry about it though.

how's the price to value for this pair of cole haan shoes? It's 90 bucks shipped after the discount. Any other comparable brands at the $100 or below price point?

I'm looking to get my first suit for interviews and such since I'm graduating from university soon.

I'm having a hard time trying to find a 100% wool suit (since I read something on SF that I shouldn't settle for something less wool than that) for ~$250 in navy or charcoal. And it's hard for me to justify a $500 suitsupply suit.

Can anyone suggest where I could get a good price-quality ratio suit? and how much better is it to spring for a more expensive one? (I'm afraid of not liking it after a couple of years)

EDIT: maybe this Asos may fit the bill? (http://goo.gl/Yc5iuE) or else maybe uniqlo?

I was just in the same predicament as you, needed a suit for interviews and under a $300 price point. I ended up purchasing a Jos A Bank Signature Gold suit for $250 on sale. I know they dont get a lot of love on here, but I actually like the suit and I think the signature gold is a decent quality for me. They also carry my size, a 36L, which is hard to find elsewhere. 

 

I also spoke a lot with the Wizard of Aahs. They have a new site, and what seem to be high quality suits in the $229-300 range.
