    +999. These suits are much more flattering than the overly tight and short jackets posted previously. Much more classically masculine silhouette.

    Too small jackets will make you look smaller than you really are and vice versa on the other end.

    Can anyone direct me towards shoe (sneaker/trainer) manufacturing in Italy, France, Portugal- really anywhere of high quality?

    I've searched this site and Googled but results are slim.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    For what reason? Good quality shoes can be made anywhere.

    What is the difference between a beaded stripe and a pindot pattern in terms of suiting fabric?

    Great question and I don't think there is much difference. Both are wider stripes and the only difference I can see is that the beaded shows a definitive break in the line. A pindot requires you to look closely. I saw some "pin dot" and it has an unbroken linear look to the stripe. Maybe a weaving distinction with the two piece goods, but rarely see outside of STP offerings from HF (c'mon, that's where you saw it)
    Not a fan of beaded as it creates a fuzzy stripe.

    Actually, it was because Despos suggested a bear stripe suit and I had no idea what it was. They both sound similar.

    What color/pattern jacket would you guys wear with a beige dress shirt that has a very subtle glen plaid pattern. it's confounded me up to this point, so I thought I'd ask for help.

    They're a pretty standard (if poor quality looking) jodhpur boot.

    Fellas,
    why do shirts with plaid designs not get much love around here? I think I read that in Noodles' thread
    It looks great to me:

    And what causes this shoulder deformation other than the fact it's 1-2 sizes too large? I've seen it on guys that have suits that fit them in the shoulders width-wise.

    If I were to wager a guess, based on the shape and slimness of the sole, something along the lines of Yves Saint Laurent.

    If by business casual, you mean polos/dress shirt and chinos/khakis/slacks, absolutely. People wear much worse.

    How well made are MR Porter Kingsman DB Suits?

    I know they are fully canvassed according to Mr Porter and they are made by cheshire bespoke. Are they worth the price point $1250(currently half off)?

    I have had this RL shirt altered to fit me. Firstly, what do you think to the overall fit? (my alterations tailor said it looks the best it ever will on me is she lying and should I go to another tailor in the future?) Secondly, the cuffs seem to be a bit too large is there any way I can get the cuffs to be made smaller?

    Thanks for all your help guys and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Navy, green, brown. Solid with texture. I have a tan shirt with a fairly bold check that I wear tieless with jackets a lot. Remember, 'navy blazer' is always an acceptable answer.
    I like them a lot, and should get more. I have a blue CT one in a thicker fabric I wear quite a lot in cooler weather.
    It fits well, and you're overthinking things on the cuffs.
