I like the Double-Breasted but am concerned it will be 'too much'.

For example, could it be worn to a professional /business setting at all? At the same time, I do like to have one double-breasted item, and I want a blazer with those precious metal buttons.


Stay away from the db unless you are 60 yrs old and going grey.

This fits great, but I am unsure if it's dated or ratty looking. Thoughts?

Getting married this Sunday at 2pm.

MTM dark gray 3-piece; one button & peak lapels, DB lapelless vest. Black AE Park Aves, black and silver Prince of Wales tie. Small white rose in the buttonhole. Groomsmen and ushers in dark suits with wedding ties, black shoes, and small dark pink rose boutonnieres.

Jacket: button when standing and unbutton when sitting, or lean more toward unbuttoned since it's a 3-piece?
Glasses: gray rimless titanium or tortoiseshell acetate?
Vest: pocketwatch on a chain or skip it?

The besom pockets look kinda sagging to me.

It may be just the way it's hanging. I'll take a look at it again.

Congrats on your wedding! I'd definitely go with the pocket watch, especially if it has sentimental meaning to you. I also vote for the tortoiseshell glasses . Regarding buttoning, that's a tough call. I'd unbutton when sitting, but when standing - hmmm...

Do they sell the dress trousers in separates? I'm only seeing the Milano cut in the casual pants.

I recently bought a pair of boots in a tan/light brown grainy leather. I wanted something a little more chocolatey in color but I couldnt find the shoe I wanted so I have these now. What is the best way to darken them? To what extent is using darker shoe polish on them (dark brown or cherry or even black) to darken them with time useful? Has anyone done this? What are the results? Thanks

4x1 has a dated vibe to it due to overuse in the 1980s, but with peak lapels, you might be able to get away with it. Looks like the V is fairly high, which is good for a DB jacket.

I recently bought a 40L Zegna tux thinking that it was a 40R. How much would it screw up the proportions of the tux to have a tailor shorten it by 1" to 1.5"?
post #8804 of 28887
From what I've read, 1" is about the most you can usually take off of a jacket. With a long, you might be able to get away with more though.

Sure, on halloween.

I never liked these kind of 'decal' trousers, Ralph Lauren has similar ones, they attract too much attention to the legs; if you wear them for something other than house painting, treat them like Spiderman underwear and never let female eyes gaze upon them, lest your genetic code die out this generation . . .
