Also fine, mate. Think you're overthinking things a bit here.

Just don't wear navy with charcoal (aka the security guard uniform).

i was being lazy and just went straight to suitsupply and picked up the wool/linen blend jacket (the singblebreasted 2button) you posted.

Hi all

 

If someone here owns or ever owned a piece of Loro Piana baby cashmere jacket then I would like to know your experience with it. It will be nice if you can answer following questions:

 

How long have you owned it ?

What care you had to take to maintain it ?

Any idea who makes it for them ?

Did you notice anything like it going out of shape or pilling after few or many wears ?

 

I wanted to buy this jacket (see url below) and before making such an expensive purchase wanted opinions of learned members here.

Anyone know a good source for a slimmer (1.5-2 inch) tweed (or tweed like) bowtie?  I need one for an event coming up and can't find anything that's both slimmer and has the rougher texture I'm looking for except for a few at the tie bar that don't do anything for me.

Disappointed that they're pre-tied, but otherwise exactly what I'm looking for, thanks.

Hi, just recently bought this suit to wear to a friends wedding, needing advice on what colour shies and tie combinations would be best for this good a more traditional dark navy suit I may wear instead of this as I'm still undecided and help would be appreciated

Try beautiesltd.com (I think that's the site) they'll do custom orders, I think.  I haven't ordered from them, just found them in my research for my wedding.

The turn might wear a garment such as that - dreadful colour, no style, really nothing going for it. Certainly not suitable for a wedding.

This was my other option, was thinking of pairing it width a very light mystard yellow the and maybe brown brogues

Second suit is much, much better than the first. For a wedding I'd favor black shoes over brown, especially if it'll be in the evening. Light yellow ties won't get much love here.

This was the tie I was thinking of getting any other suggestions ? image.jpg 153k .jpg file

Way better than the other suit. Brown brogues would be perfect. Someone else will no doubt weigh in on the tie.

Bold move going with no shirt but I'd suggest a white one.
