    Dark gray pants would work with a black slim fit suit jacket?
    white button down
    slim black tie
    black loafers
    and white? pocket square?

    would that be ok or should I just go get black pants>


    Don't get back pants. it will look silly.

    Also, change your tie color. Black and white looks silly unless 1) it's black tie, 2) you're in a quentin tarantino movie, 3) you're at a funeral.

    erm... no.

    Everything will shrink - length, arm holes, chest, back - it would be a disaster.

    Generally;

    If a chest measurement is 40" (taken right up the armpit), would (obviously with the shoulders fitting correctly) you able to get into a jacket that has a 40", 41" or 42" pit-to-pit measurement?

    And can a waistcoat be used like a girdle/corset to suck in the gut?

    If you're saying you have a 40 inch chest then a jacket that fits you should have a bigger measured chest.

    Generally, yes. My chest measures 40 when I inhale and expand it, but I take a 42 in a suit coat.

    Not sarcasm on the black pants is it? I can't tell [​IMG]
    Anyways, I think I will go with my original gray tweed tie.

    I want to wear a waistcoat, dark gray or black?
    And what about the pocket square? [​IMG]

    Punch caps are totally fine. You're set to go with this pair.
