[quote=svd;4265703][quote=BBSLM;4265425]Would this be considered an 'unstructured blazer'?



Im trying to figure out if this would give the same look:

thanks, guys.

Commisioned my first MTM shirt today here at the local tailor I found. In order to avoid the baggy look I said to the tailor to make it without pleats. Got the email few minutes ago about the pleats - whether I meant back or sleeve pleats? I don't know what they mean by that (the sleeve pleats). An explanation/help would be appreciated

The jacket may be one size too(you can see the extra material in the back) big for the current slim-fitting style (which is coming to an end of its cycle). Go one size down if you can. If this is a suit you own, a tailor could make some adjustments to the jacket and pants. You'll get heat for the shoes on SF too, but I think you're just asking about the suit. Overall I think it looks OK. I'd put a solid navy tie in place of that silver? one.

I've been looking for a new suit for about 2 months now. I haven't been able to find anything on sale and in my price range. I dont want to spend more than $800. Any suggestions? I really want to stray away from ebay.

Well there can be pleats in both places normally. The back pleats can go away for sure, but I have never seen (or noticed) a shirt that didn't have sleeve pleats. Sleeve pleats can look a little messy so it would be interesting to see how a shirt turned out that didn't have any.

For $800 you should have a lot of options. What exactly are you looking for - fabric, cut, etc.? Most major retailers will likely have sales starting soon.

hi you old gangsters of style,
i am getting a dark chocolate brown suit with a herringbone pattern. Do you have recs on style and color of shoe to match? I am thinking a burgandy wingtip. But have also considered going with a lighter shade of brown. Thoughts?

Im trying to figure out if this would give the same look:

The top one looks wool to me, the bottom one cotton. Likely the bottom will always look more casual, less structured than the top. But yeah, it would look similarly casual.

Hi
I'm going to my gf's art show reception party in April. What should i wear? She told me anything is fine....but i dunno.. It's in DC and will be in the evening. Thanks

What is the sizing like on the Isaia Napoli line in the shoulders? I'm typically a 39-40 short but the napoli line is described as having a soft rounded shoulder, so I wonder if a 38s might work.

I saw a "$4500" Brioni double-breasted blue blazer at Filene's Basement today. It had recently arrived and was marked $1449. There were no department store tags on it . . . and the non-working cuffs already had buttons sewn on. I didn't pull the trigger . . . but am still thinking about it. Any pro's or con's?

Depends on where you would wear it. The lighter brown would be more informal than burgundy, but would probably look good either way.

Dark chocolate brown is fine, but it shouldn't be your first suit as it is not as versatile as navy or charcoal.

Say...anyone know who makes (or made) Bill Blass's made in Italy shoes? Just picked up a pair from the thrift store with the same color/broguing as the Grensons I've been eying. No longer want the Grensons.

I told them to do it without back pleats only. Hope it will turn out ok Thanks for your help!
