For those of you with 3 piece suits:

Suit vests - self-back or same as lining of suit?

I generally like a bit of bright contrast lining with my suits and it doesn't look very good on a standalone vest once I have taken off the jacket. I prefer self-back or even same fabric as it looks cleaner.

I've got a few RL Polo or RL Purple Label suits with waistcoats, and all of the waistcoats for those suits are backed with the same fabric used for the suit lining.

However, with my three-piece suit from Deer Style, I went with a self-backed waistcoat as it looks cleaner when you're not wearing your jacket.

Also, with the waistcoat of the Deer Style made-to-order suit, I omitted the back adjuster on the waistcoat as I didn't see any point to it.

Thanks. I'm deciding between the two but am a bit worried about self fabric for thickness /heat reasons since its a 370g weight wool. If not for that, I'd have no hesitation choosing same fabric.

I go same lining as suit. Learnt the hard way to tone down the lining.... I find a smoky blue/grey works quite nicely with a dark brown or grey suit.
I have a two piece lined with a really nice matt dark red slubby shantung and I'd love something like that for the back of vest.

4. I do not have nice ankles and will stick to socks, thanks. But strumpy brogues rock!

5. True genius is better than false genius.

My leather soles are black now.

Are my shoes ruined? or should i resole them? Or should i just wear cheap pointy guido shoes to the ivy next time? I'm very sad because everytime i touch the sole of my shoes when im brushing them, all i can think of is the piss that is touching my hands. Please help frown.gif

 

Aye, don't fret mate. It just happened that you saw what you stepped on. All the other times when you're walking on the roads, pavements, corridors, fields, you just don't know what you're possibly stepping on.

Mr Porter's service is, IMHO, the epitome of customer service. Not just compared to other online retailers, but across the board.

Yes. Please. They'll be perfect for warmer climes (personal vested interest because I keep going back to Singapore).

What do people think of this suit, with the GQ code, Osaka cut for $560

Lapels are very skinny, much skinnier than other HB suits.

If ou can find it, there is a nice mid-gray chalk stripe suit with the traditional wide lapels on an Osaka fit. It a two-button and not a 3-roll-2 but I can live with that more than I can, anaemic lapels.
