If my lapel width is 3.5 inches, what should my tie width be?
looking for some tassle loafers, relatively low budget say 200 or less, going for a preppy look. can i get any help on where to look for them?
"I recently purchased a white and peach striped shirt with contrast collar and French cuffs. I matched it up with a striped navy blue and grey striped suit. I welcome your opinions and critique on which you believe is a better combination along with any tie suggestion, thank you."
My two cents: the blue is the better match, but the stripes on the shirt are too close to the stripes on the jacket.
Standard wisdom is approximately the same width but not everybody adheres to this.
Something like this?
Edit: There is also quite a selection at TheShoeMart
Return the shirt. It is horrible. Get a plain white spread collar barrel cuff shirt and wear it better with either suit and almost any tie. Also, the pocket square is horrible, those striped suits need something more sober. These two combos here look like a Matisse, and imo, that is not a good thing.
Around the same. Slightly narrower tie with bigger lapels always looks better than a bigger tie with narrow lapels.
Wow, I had no idea. Congrats.
Some crazy percentage of all designer glasses, regardless of the logo, are made by Luxotica (including all of the Ralph Lauren brands, but not Zegna). You definitely pay a premium to put somebody else's name on the side of your face.
Wanna see my stretch marks?
Thanks, I'll pass.
Looking to purchase a suit, but I seem to have a misshapen torso! I.e., my chest (41/42") and shoulder seem larger proportionately to my waist (33") - when I get suits that fit my shoulders and chest, the rest of the jacket often seems way too boxy and pants are Hulk-Like. Two questions then:
1) How much can one suppress the waist of a standard OTR suit jacket before it starts to look 'off?'
2) Are there any quality (i.e., no Versace/Boss/etc) suits that retail <1K where the cut lends itself to this body type?
BB Milano and Fitzgerald are both slimmer cuts with high armholes
Try the Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald cut and Samuelsohn Gable.
