    What color shirt to wear to a wedding? Solid color (white?) or can it be a patterned shirt?

    Suit is solid navy. Wedding is June 23. Ceremony and reception is at a hotel.

    I get this on a couple of shirts too. Haven't figured out why, it's only some shirts and not others (different brands and types) My guess is it's either a material or cut issue with the shirt as I use the same washing machine and other shirts I have never suffer from it.

    I'm having some trouble picking a first full suit. I have a couple of second hand jackets of terrible quality but the fit seems reasonable on them. Unfortunately, there is a dismal selection of suits at any of the shops around me. The best quality brand I can find is Hugo Boss...

    As far as I can see, I have a couple of options:

    1. Online MTM, probably from ModernTailor, using measurements from a jacket I already have (perhaps I should post a photo or two just to get an opinion of the fit

    2. An ebay suit, I really like the look of some of the Corneliani suits online for about $700, might wait around for a cheaper deal but it seems a bit risky as I don't know how the cut would fit me. In principal it sounds good, and I do love how they fit from photos I've seen.

    3. ???

    About to go buy a suit from Z Zegna.
    I'm 171cm and it's 38R, is the jacket good size for me, or is it too long ?

    Not sure if the whole thing is too long, but you will need to shorten the sleeves should you choose to buy it.
    Also needs higher quality photos and more of them:
    -around the chest-area
    -from neck to waist

    seems like it's creasing in the chest, especially on the right side (your right side, my left one)

    A back shot would also help

    I'd stick with a nice white crisp shirt

    The soles don't look all that worn to me. Yeah, they're scuffed, but that's normal. You'll have a better sense when they arrive.

    Just wear them as is, I think. You would want to put topys on a fresh sole anyway, the grit and uneven wear on a sole makes putting them on old soles less than ideal. Besides, I don't believe in them. Leather soles have a distinct feel, and topys destroy that. Leather soles aren't evil, don't be afraid of them.

    That's a good price for those shoes. They're nice ones, and in great shape. As for care, use shoe trees, polish and condition regularly, and you'll be fine.

    I was looking at getting a plain toe suede blucher for the summer and for when dressing more casually (jeans or khaki's with a polo) and was thinking of going with J&M's Headley as the price is right. It would be for pretty informal events (going out for dinner, church etc). Any opinions on chocolate vs taupe for versatility?

    Well, the chocolate would certainly be the more versatile of the two, though that's not to say you shouldn't get the taupe which would still be pretty versatile with casual-wear.

    Dunno which one would be more versatile, but I'd choose these ones any day
