Ya u guys are probably right.
I guess im going to pass on it.
Thanks a lot guys!
I would think they could work with those more casual combinations.
I have never understood the appeal of the bicycle toe. I can't picture any scenario in which it looks good.
Where can I get a basic unstructured blazer along these lines?
Something in the $200 range would be great. Closest I've found is this one from J Crew:
As someone who is often *required* to wear a black suit, I would not advise wearing much color with it. Black is severe and creates high contrast with whatever you wear it with. If you wear a lot of color, it really screams out and looks clownish and inelegant. The best way to wear a black suit, IMO, is with a white shirt and a dark, simple tie. This is why the consensus is to not buy a black suit... your options are very limited.
The appeal is that it's different and unique. Or at least that was the appeal to me when I was in my early 20s...
How did the breast pocket come into fruition? is there any significance as to why one would be slanted and other not, if so why would one consider a slanted breast pocket over a straight?
I don't know how it came to be, but as far as the slant goes I am sure it is tailors preference, or maybe it has to do with a riding, or hunting jacket that has slanted side pockets. The "hacking" pockets on the hips are done that way because it is easier to access them.
In general the English tailors make straighter breast pockets, while the Italians offer a curve to them like a crescent.
I have found a charcoal Jack Victor suit with a very faint windowpane pattern at a local store for ~$240. I am a little hesitant because of the pattern, even though it is very subtle and because it has one of those extra ticket pockets (i think that is what it is called) but the suit is at such a discount for what I think is a good quality suit and because it fits really well. I need a suit for upcoming law school interviews.
Is this suit appropriate for my needs?
It isn't ideal, but it is not offensive. I think you will be ok. If the deal was so good, why don't you get a solid navy or charcoal suit somewhere else as well?
Make sure you also pair it with a simple sober tie, no crazy stripes or patterns.
anyone have experiance with Barney's co-op slim fit chinos. Are they really slim?
I have found that #8 cordovan is the perfect and most versatile shoe colour.
Wouldn't be my first choice for an interview. Good luck in law school.
If it fits well get it. It will force you to buy another suit.
I can't imagine that today accessibility would be a reason for today's working man but I can't say for sure if someone riding would stuff something in there it seems an odd place to put anything really. I understand the whole hacking pockets coming from the hacking jackets. I just curious as to why they are there and what they're original purpose is for
