    It is so casual and cheap that the people that post over there could give you better advice.

    I've been looking at shirt brands such as Isaia, Borelli, and Thomas Pink. While Pink does offer a slim option, I fear that might still be a bit big and will undoubtedly require alterations. Would I be better off going MTM on the shirts or does the quality of said brands far exceed that of MTM? Thank you.

    From the pictures it looks like the fit is not that great. The waist needs suppression and the shoulders are large. Also the sleeve length is too long. Given all that it needs to fit properly, I would not keep it. Plus, that style is more for a shirt IMO and very hard to pull off on a blazer.

    Thanks, that's pretty close to what I thought felt right, but the more researching I did, the more doubt crept in.

    My answer depends on how long before you are eligible for parole and whether you need that oversized jacket to smuggle contraband into your prison.

    I keep seeing Allen Edmonds Players' shoe in walnut at Nordstrom Rack for $199. You can probably find some on EBay as well from others who recently picked them up at a hefty discount.

    Looks pretty bad. It's a tough pattern to use in the first place, but the pockets are the killers for me. Weird/bad pattern matching, flapped pockets (even the chest)...the whole thing looks like an epilepsy hazard.

    Hello all. Just picked up a Harris Tweed Gray/Black herringbone jacket off of ebay. I am a bit confused on what color trousers would be appropriate though. I've read that black is not a good choice so what should I go for? Thanks.

    I purchased a raincoat (single breasted, no belted trench coat?) that unfortunately is a bit too large for me (my old size, but I've been working out and dieting and it's too big and only going to get bigger on me).

    Is it possible to have a tailor slim sleeves and take in the waist/back to have this thing fit me more like a loose fitting classic raincoat and less like a poncho?

    I'm not all too familiar with alterations to ready-to-wear clothing.

    Good call, Gibonius. I missed the wonky pockets in the general misfitting and other associated tragedies of this jacket.

    OP, do not go there.
