    Form the brief look I took it seems like a decent deal but I would look for something outside of the navy realm since you already have a navy suit. Perhaps in the brown family? Also, when buying a used suit check the crotch for wear. Either have the seller send you a pic or ask if there is any wear in the crotch area. Those pants could be really thin down there.

    Why are neckties that are 2.25" to 2.75" inches are in style now than neckties that are 4" wide?

    Why are narrow lapel suits/sportcoats and short collar dress shirts are in style than wider ones these days?

    I can only venture a guess that it is because media is pushing them. I don't know about short collar dress shirts maybe more spread collar, I feel that those have not really changed unless you are comparing it to the 70s. I think the narrow trend probably started with Mad Men.

    For the same reason that anything is in style at any time.

    It definitely did not start with mad men. I would say the height of Hedi Slimane for Dior Homme started the waif silhuoette with narrow everything. I would say somewhere around 2004.

    Quick question about using the suit as I'm fairly new on here. How do you post an article to the classifieds section?

    I think I read you need to be a member for 45 days before you can.

    Got a new shirt in the mail today. TM Lewin St. James collar. What do you all think of the fit? Fresh out of the box, I starched it after I tried it on.

    As a fellow skinny-necked fellow, I would suggest that dramatic spreads only draw more attention to an area guys like us might not want to emphasize.
