    Way too short on you. WAAAAAY too short.

    You look like you grabbed a blazer that you grew out of ten years ago and put it on for kicks.

    What are typical dress shirt fabrics for warm spring/summer weather? Looking for something light weight.

    I have two questions:

    1. Are there grades of suede? What are some ways to identify higher quality suede?

    I know the difference between corrected grain, full grain, and top grain, but I'm lost when it comes to suede. I understand the cost-cutting measures manufacturers take that result in poor-quality un-napped leather, but I don't think I understand how a manufacturer cuts costs in manufacturing or cutting suede.

    2. Can anyone recommend a good tailor in Seattle?

    Thanks!

    I have a nice Paul Stuart wool sport jacket with 4 inch lapels I am thinking of getting reduced, maybe to 3.5"? Tailor here in NYC said they could remove the collar and perform surgery, but I wanted to get any thoughts based on the pic below.. I got a great deal on the jacket but am coming to realize the lapels are a bit larger than I am used to.. Maybe I'm crazy.. Thanks! [​IMG]

    A businessman will match his sock to his trouser color.
    A gentleman will match his socks to his mood.


    Great answer!! Couldn't have said it better myself!

    Cotton broadcloth would be the best option, and as another said linen.

    I bought a pair of Tyrwhitt shoes a few years ago. At that time, I believe their shoes were made by Loake.

    What are the blazers with lapels that are outlined with a white or off color border? I have been looking to pick one up but don't know where to start.

    Thanks.
