    I would be deadset against it because I don't like pairing black with navy. Those are black stripes right?

    Black shoes, socks to match the pants.

    If you get your suits from a tailor, should you always return to that tailor if alterations become needed (so that he can modify your pattern)?

    Is £139 a good price for a Kiton shirt?

    It's probably less than half price.

    Yes 50% off in the Kiton concession in Harrods. Didn't know if that was an amazing price or just so-so

    I've recently lost two more pounds. I'm now at 332 lbs. I'm 35 lbs lighter altogether since my highest weight was 367 lbs in late 2009. Is it okay for a big and tall man like me wearing plaid, or bold stripes. And even narrow neckties from 2" to 2.75" wide?

    Are you talking about a MTM suit? If so, I would go back to them for alterations since they probably won't charge you for them. There is, however, a good chance they aren't updating their pattern at all, unless of course, you request it.

    Try a pink shirt with light grey suit!

    Light blue solid or micro-check shirt.

    I would wear dark brown with the grey. You could go oxblood with either. And socks in a similar shade to pants.



    I wouldn't.

    No or very slight break is fine. The ankle thing is definitely a fad.

    What do you mean I would't like wear plaid or bold stripes or trendy narrow neckties like you see on GQ Magazines recently?

    I'd avoid the narrow ties but stripes should be fine.

    Those narrow ties are trendy and very 1960s like Mad Men for example. I've got a few neckties that are under 3" inches wide. One from Brooks Brothers, Two from Barney's Co-Op, and one from Gitman Bros. which I purchased the latter at David Lindsey Clothiers months ago.
