    I don't think you'll have a problem with any of those. They are all real-life (rather than SF) conservative.

    +1 but as much as I like Steve (I have bought several items from him in the past), I wouldn't wear a suit with a red pinstripe for an interview.

    Hi my name is Kevin, I was in an Brooks Brothers outlet and i found a Makers and Merchants tie in a pile of 346's. I paid $30.00 and the price tag said $79.50. I was wondering if i got a good deal. Thank you.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Quick question, I have a charcoal suit which came with flat front pants, they are slim style pants, very slim at the bottom opening. They have a front crease down the front of each leg. It kinda interferes with the tongue/laces of the shoe and makes the pants sit a bit strange. Is there a rule or a reason that if a pair of pants came with the front crease it was made to be worn that way/or is there no issue to just simply iron the crease out of the front and either have a side crease at the hem or ??

    Suit trousers should always have a crease down the front.

    Wow, thanks a lot! Appreciate that.

    I've been searching forever typing in on google "fleur-de-lis glasses", etc... and had no luck :(

    Thanks again.

    Now here's my question...

    First of: I am 27 and I look like someone who's 21. [​IMG]

    For my wedding (summer, no tux) I'll be wearing; a slim 3-piece navy suit from Tiger of Sweden:



    [​IMG] - [​IMG]
    The vest is not shown, but everything is the same S120 Cerutti fabric.



    The ? is
    Will this bowtie by Collared Greens

    [​IMG]

    - with the reversed green side "out" and navy down the middle,
    combined with this silk pocket square from Berg & Berg ???

    [​IMG]

    be too matchy and/or not give enough variation in the color palette, which is navy (suit), brown (shoes+belt) and ivory (shirt)...

    I wanted to have silver and/or brown in the Bow tie/Pocket square combo, but all four colors were either impossible to find or way to busy-looking!

    BTW: One of the "themes" that we have been using in invitations and decorations nature/green, so that is the reason I am rating the green combo higher than silver...


    Shoes and belt for those who want to see all the details:






    [​IMG]
    EDIT::
    I put in the wrong belt to begin with. This is the one that matches the shoes:
    [​IMG]

    The shoes and belt does have the same hue/color

    More of a tailor-etiquette question:

    My father ordered brown, linen MTM jacket from Sartoria Partenopea. It is too short in my opinion (but he agreed for this length - so there is nothing to do about that I guess). The main problem are the pockets though - flap instead of patched. It's their mistake. For me this is a crucial misunderstanding and I would request my money back (the down payment) - or if that is not possible, I would at least not pay the rest. What do you say? Ordering another one is not an option since they struggle to do anything right.


    I guess my dad is going to pay, because he wants to avoid saying no...

    I know the shoes are below SF standards - I would have liked a better sole, but I really like the design, and the future mrs. said that they were the best of the ones I had to pick from... Out of which some were suede... and most were cap toes or wingtips.....


    The belt is the correct width for a "dress" belt. It is not "streetwear" size...
