Yes, SS habitually displays its suits on models for whom they're too small, in an effort, I suspect, to appeal to a younger demographic.

 

In this case it doesn't necessarily mean that the trousers would be too short on anyone else, of course.

Apart from the fit on this specific model, are the details cuffed trousers, lapel width, pockets etc. acceptable or should I be looking elsewhere?

Well, generally speaking yes, it'd be fine, but if you are really truly in a CBD environment then no, you shouldn't have patch pockets, it shouldn't have contrasting button holes and buttons, it should probably be a darker shade of grey, and just generally shouldn't be so obviously fashiony.

Does the rule that sweaters should be folded rather than hung so that there is no gradual loss of shape over time apply equally to cotton and wool?

I have seen hangers create divots in the shoulders of sweaters, cotton and wool alike. Aside from general sagging that is. I have avoided hanging my sweaters ever since...

Yes. The issue is that knits stretch out when hung- a hanger, especially a poorly shaped one, but any hanger, will compound the problem by creating some nasty points in the shoulders.

If it's knit, fold it. If it's made of a woven fabric, you're fine.

I have a heavy herringbone pair and a tweed pair which I love but I live in a mild climate so I can't wear them enough. I got a lighter weight pair of flannel and they are nice but worsted and more refined than I want usually.

How about a open tropical weave or maybe light weight twill? Are these very refined looking or textured?

I would think you could get herringbone in a lightweight wool fairly easily, but you may be in Mtm territory there. I don't know about the specific materials you mentioned, but I'm sure someone will.

If anything, stretching out of shape will be worse with cotton than with wool ime.

I just bought a beautiful Gant houndstooth tie, which seems to be made of wool for $2 in the thrift store.

It has 3-4 approximately dime sized coffee looking stains on it.

I'm wholly prepared to toss it in the bin if I can't save it, but want to give myself a fighting chance.

It is lined so I can't get to the back of the stain.

My plan is to pre-treat it, wash it in the sink in cold water, then hang it in the boiler room and pray.

Is there anything I should specifically use?

Try the dry cleaner maybe? It'll probably be like 5 bucks for them to try with the tie. And you can try your madness if it doesn't work haha.

Would the lapels on this suit blazer be considered too wide for a 23-year old to wear? (I'm 5'8" and slim) Thanks!

As long as it isn't a conservative work environment, and you realize and embrace the fact that you are being ballsy.

Edit: They aren't quite as wideas I thought, on the wider side of acceptable. I say let it rip.

Thank you, I will eventually be a veterinarian so won't be wearing it to work hah! It's a fully canvassed Brooks suit I've found that I really like the look of, at a good price, so I thought I'd snap it up! The seller tells me they are 4" lapels.

It looks very nice fabric wise. I'd wear it out to a party or something fun.

Yeah, I probably would use a different tie and shirt, but that jacket looks good. Definitely go wider tie for it. If you're 5'8 and skinny it might not be the best look though, however if it fits well you'll probably be better dressed than the majority of your compatriots.

 

I'm guessing those aren't your images and are from the seller. I think you'd be better off avoiding that suit if you're pretty skinny, but otherwise it'd be okay. Not my first choice, but definitely good.
