Regardless of how the waist fits on a jacket it is consensus that high arm holes are better for movement in the jacket. As to how high is, of course, preference.

oh man
i went to a greasy hamburger joint for lunch in my suit
the burger was GREAT (cassell's burger in los angeles)
but now i smell like frying oil
will steaming the suit get the smell out by itself? is there something else i could do in the mean time? just let it air out?

Solid light grey suit with black shoes - would you do the traditional white with a funky tie (grey with other colors that pop out) OR some light color shirt with a tie to compliment it?..maybe a striped shirt? darker grey shirt w/ orange colored tie? whats your take on it?
 
I wanted to wear some kind of an orange shirt (nothing too bright) because I'm known for wearing a lot of orange by my peers, along with a tie that had both colors incorporated into it. Its gonna be a mission to find something I would go for, but I'm determined (got two weeks til the wedding).....your thoughts?
This is the color of the suit I will be wearing...

Generally, you want to be known as the guy who dresses well, not the guy constantly wearing orange. Not all trademarks are positive ones. Skip the orange shirt. Orange tie if you must, but I would deliberately steer clear of it.

Has anyone had a good experience in ordering a belt online and can recommend a place?

Price range is ~ $50

Looking to wear with suits and prefer a black color. Thinner as well, less than 1.5" in width.

is magnanni shoe any good? in terms of construction and quality
or is it just another fashion brand shoes that will fall apart?

just bought these at nordstrom rack
the price was still higher than i would have liked ($159)
but they fit so well and are really comfortable
and i like the color

but at $159 if this brand isn't a "quality" brand, then maybe i'm better off spending a little more money for shoes that will give me more bang for the buck

In my opinion,A gentleman will match his socks to his mood,A businessman will match his sock to his trouser color.smile.gif

Tried on some Lombard's and feel comfy, but when I walk it feels like my heel could come out of the shoe although I don't think it ever will. Is this considered heel slippage? There was no gap in the back, so I don't think its too large. Will this go away after they've been broken in?

Also, best to get a little snug because itll stretch out over time? How would I know if it is too tight at the sides?

Ah yeah AE Lombards are very nice and an essential IMO. Have an SA help you find your shoe size and shoe width.

i went to a AE store to buy the lombards and the salesman said that they should all go on big discount sale soon because AE is discontinuing them.

it's above what you said but I think it's a solid choice.
