    I've never been hit with customs fees for an eBay purchase, even when things haven't been marked as a gift.

    I would only buy Vince if it's deeply discounted.

    ok

    for a wedding
    Navy Pinstripe suit
    and these shoes
    http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4325812
    (in Brown)
    probably white or blue french cuff (though light purple is an option too, not sure i can pull that off)

    any thought/recommendations on tie, pocket square, sock combo?

    prefer not to buy a new tie
    thinking a dark orange ferragamo tie i have which has some cranberries and partridges on it (so maybe a little too holiday-ish, upon close inspection, haven't decided yet)
    other options are red (light or dark), and blue (light or dark)

    feedback appreciated

    thanks!

    Are there rules for wearing long sleeve wool polos over shirts? I've seen people doing it but I can't decide if the multiple collars look weird or not. I have a charcoal grey wool long sleeve polo and it looks pretty good on its own but I'm curious.

    Awful. Do not do, better yet skip the polo altogether.

    I would not wear a striped business suit to a wedding.

    Just got this Our Legacy hoody. Being a short person with short person problems, the torso fits long.
    But do you guys think I could pass it off as a relaxed fit? Sleeves probably need shortening, but hemming might be impossible and/or too expensive.
    The hemline covers the back welt pockets of my chinos.

    Relaxed or sloppy? Use or lose?

    I'm loving these shoes for some reason, but alas, and yet again, I have no idea how to wear them. What kind of shirt/shorts combo or shirt/pants combo would work with these? Or please talk me out of buying them. http://tinyurl.com/laxcnbl

    Yup. I found a pair of pants for like 12 bucks at a nordy rack once. Would have bought them but they were too slim. Quality was okay and they would have looked good had they fit.

    Hi there, quite new to the forum and a big fan of how Dior Homme blazers are cut. I'm 18 and am looking at buying a dior homme blazer online and have been wondering what size to purchase due to the slim cut. I always thought that I was a eu46, but upon measuring myself I found my measurements aligning with that of an eu48? (In terms of purely chest size at least)

    I looked online that most suits are cut with a 6inch drop from chest to waist but my measurements are:

    Chest: 38 inches
    Waist: 29.5inches
    Circumference of Torso (I.e. overarm - chest+shoulders) : 44inches

    at 5ft9 and 66kgs

    I dont know how relevant the 'drop' is as I am only interested in a blazer and dont know if that is factored into how the suit is cut.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    - Thanks

    Hello everyone, I'm kind of a newbie when it comes to wearing suits, so I'd like to get some opinions. I have a charcoal suit with light pinstripes and bordo-colored shoes. I'm trying to find the perfect shirt and tie combo for a fancy dinner date... I want to look my very BEST. Please view the below image... any and all recommendations are welcome. Thank you!

    Just polished my first pair of Allen Edmonds and the leather bled onto the cloth rag I used to apply the polish. Is that normal?

    John Black,

    Hopefully you'll get more feedback from others.

    Go with a dark tie, preferably with a different texture than the suit. A burgundy grenadine tie is very popular here (and looks good). Alternatively, consider some shade of blue (that is noticeably different than the suit's color). Whatever the color, the knot should be tighter, so that it covers the top button of your shirt. And the knot itself could look much sharper too. Look around for pictures of a four-in-hand knot. Pay attention to where it sits on the shirt, its size, and the dimple.

    The white shirt works here; a light blue shirt would also look nice.

    Finally, while I suspect a real suit aficionado could offer a dozen suggestions (which I'm always interested to hear), I will say I think the suit generally looks good. The sleeves are a touch long, as it is customary to show a bit of shirt cuff from under the suit sleeves.

    If you were to make one quick, simple, cheap change though it should be the tie.

    C

    Suit and shirt and shoes are okay - tough to gauge fit from posed photo but advice to show a little shirt cuff is good. Find a dark tie (but not black or grey) in a solid satin and you're good. Grenadine tie could also work well if you can find one.
