    When people speak of an unconstructed linen sports coat, do they mean it has absolutely no lining--including the sleeves?


    Unlined is unlined. Unconstructed is well.

    If you remove the lining from most RTW jackets you'll find the inside isn't that pretty. A unlined jacket needs to be prettied up so the seams look nice. With a lining all those guts are covered.

    Maybe rip a seam and take a look at how well finished it is under the lining.

    Unlined even in the sleeves?
    I'll give it a look. I wonder if it's possible to have the seams prettied up.

    Probably not worth it, just thinking about breathability.

    Lined sleeves are easier to put your arms in.

    Hi a question to those to often to go tailor their pants.

    I'm completely new to this and I wanna ask about tailoring slim khakis. Problem is I've never bought slim khakis in my life and I haven't tried on any at stores either. So I don't know how tight the hems are supposed to be. How wide should the hems of the pants be?

    My tailor (who is an old man, I think he mostly does pants for middle-aged people) tells me that 18cm is good enough (meaning 36cm in circumference) but I'm not so sure.

    Can I match one belt to Chili or Oxblood coloured shoes? I was thinking dark brown.

    I am going to be buying my first pair of dress shoes since my parents bought them for me in high school and was going to go for allen edmonds (nearby outlet store if the price is right or maybe ebay it)

    For color I like the burgundy/dark browns over blacks and I don't own a black suit anyway. But what shoe models / characteristics would be appropriate for going from chinos to more casual suits?

    Open lacing and no brogue? I can get a new Charleston in my size for $130 if that would be appopriate

    I think that Weybridge is one of their sexiest shoes. I'd recommend getting them. They look great with jeans, chinos or dress pants.

    18cm is very slim. I see most of the mabitex/incotex slims have hems that are 1-3cm bigger

    I like oxfords and some brogues for my brown shoes. 5th ave, weybridge, van ness if u like a little broguing. Strand and mcallister if you like a lot of brogueing.

    Thanks for the quick response! I think I like the 5th ave and weybridge the best, I don't think I am ready for so much brogueing yet haha

    Insoles aren't necessary if the shoes fit properly.
