    Thinking of getting an overcoat in the same style but different fabric than this, but was a bit put off by the center sleeve seam (there's an inner one as well so not sure what the function is other than decorative). Anything you've seen before? Thanks

    This is most probably a no, but does this flannel shirt match with the sport coat? Will be wearing with tan chinos.

    ^ you answered your own question. Definately a no. Also, that looks quite suity as a SC. I'd go with a blue non BD dress shirt.

    I"ll echo that the above combo doesn't work. But I'd wear a BD because of the chinos.

    I just bought a suit from Suitsupply (it's this one if anyone is curious) and was wondering if I could get some feedback on whether I should bother with getting my tailor to do anything to the body at all.

    Obviously, I'll get the sleeves and pants shortened; but do you think the back needs cleaning up/slimmed or would you not bother?

    Thanks

    ^^ I often wear jeans with odd jackets....but not with a navy blazer. It's done, I just personally don't love the blue on blue and a proper navy blazer is just below a suit in terms of formality (more at home with wool pants, tie, etc). unless you are talking about a blue odd jacket, with non metal buttons then I guess I'd have to see the jacket and jeans together to judge.

    Your suit looks fine and masculine the way it is. One thing that stands out to me is the shoulders, but I woudln't be able to tell you what it is. Overall good fit.

    Here is a link for the blazer. It is cotton and "textured" the more I think about it the more... Picked it up for 110 at BR. I also picked up this one. Its wool and gray.
    I don't dress to that point. I think the closes right now is black jeans and button up shirts. Maybe too soon for a blazer/jacket?

    I purchased some teal pants and am looking into some versatile colored khakis.

    That is much different than what I'd consider a navy blazer. Wear it with jeans if you like and enjoy.

    I'm not sure but it looks like lint or is that speck in the jacket itself? Do you sit with it rubbing against anything while wearing it?

    How forgiving is sizing for driving mocs?

    never worn anything like them before but thinking of ordering a pair of Andy Toms. They only seem to come in standard widths and whole sizes. Is this because their as easy to fit as sneakers or should i be shopping around more? (in aus so i can't really try anything on, all shoe purchases online)

    Happy new year! What would be the best way to get some dried mud stains off a pair of Brooks Milano pants (tan)?

    My experience (with Tods) is that they are very forgiving at least if we are talking the ones with rubber pebble sole (or whatever it's called). I'd size down a half size if in bettween sizes.

    Cool, thanks for the feedback. Yeah, the right shoulder is a combination of my right being lower than my left and having a different sleeve pitch. It's not enough for me to worry about it though.

    I'm looking to get my first suit for interviews and such since I'm graduating from university soon.

    I'm having a hard time trying to find a 100% wool suit (since I read something on SF that I shouldn't settle for something less wool than that) for ~$250 in navy or charcoal. And it's hard for me to justify a $500 suitsupply suit.

    Can anyone suggest where I could get a good price-quality ratio suit? and how much better is it to spring for a more expensive one? (I'm afraid of not liking it after a couple of years)

    EDIT: maybe this Asos may fit the bill? (http://goo.gl/Yc5iuE) or else maybe uniqlo?

    I was just in the same predicament as you, needed a suit for interviews and under a $300 price point. I ended up purchasing a Jos A Bank Signature Gold suit for $250 on sale. I know they dont get a lot of love on here, but I actually like the suit and I think the signature gold is a decent quality for me. They also carry my size, a 36L, which is hard to find elsewhere.

    I also spoke a lot with the Wizard of Aahs. They have a new site, and what seem to be high quality suits in the $229-300 range.
