I've avoided the dilemma when wearing the full suit by using suspenders or replacing the bucks with tan calfskin but I have a couple other pair of SS trousers I would wear separately, i.e. without tie & jacket, with the bucks if I had a proper belt.

 

Many thanks.

Doesn't matter, as long as the tabs on the surcingle are tan.

 

It's casual dressing. I mean, the kind of very American look you're going for with bucks, seersucker, and surcingle can benefit from not being over-thought.

 

Though of course, navy with a red stripe is very classic. Obviously, anything with a red will work. I might not wear a solid in an autumnal color.

What do you guys think of this 4X2 double-breasted cut?  
 

 

I tried on this suit in Navy, it felt great but just looked off.  Is it just my double-breasted virginity making me uncomfortable?  or is the cut just not right?

Looks really short.

Hi everyone,

 

I have a question regarding this shirt.  I am thinking about sending it for measurements to make an MTM shirt.  Any comments on the fit?

I went to a new tailor to have jacket sleeve alterations, and he seems to have damaged the fabric.

 

Is there any way it can be repaired?

I like it. I assume we're overlooking the too-long pants and the terrible shoes.

Impossible to say without seeing it on you. But if you aren't comfortable in it you shouldn't wear it.

We would need more pictures, but compare the picture to this one:

The balance on the one posted is different, maybe it's just on the model, but the length strock me as odd.

I'm on the fence w/r/t a (pure linen) dark brown sport coat for summer. It has tan/khaki contrast buttons, and I'd pretty much wear it exclusively with khaki/tan trou and blue shirts. I already have a very light brown/beige SC.

 

Any thoughts on wearing dark brown in the summer, even with light colored combos/accents? In my head it looks good, but you just don't see it often.

 

Here's the jacket in question:

That's kind of my point; you've shown an older man's styled DB coat. Which is perfectly fine, but modern styled DBs are cut more like this:

I think it's a good investment. I have a brown linen sport coat that I wear all the time. Besides khaki/stone it also looks great with white trousers and all kinds of gingham / tattersall / etc. shirts that contain white and some lighter colour.

The length of the coat, primarily.

A MTM dress shirt? If so...try the shirt on with a jacket and re-post.

Any thoughts on vest to go with single button peak lapel black tux?

Basically, assuming it will be low cut with 3 buttons, I am wondering if the opening should be U shaped or more of a V. Also, should it have shawl lapels.

Is there a standard format for this?

Low cut is the important bit. U shape is more classic, but a v would be fine if you like it more. Shawl lapel or no lapels is personal preference.
