    Are slim ties considered just as professional as standard width ties?

    To some, yes; to others, no.

    Guess I'll make my first SF post a question:

    What is the most that a tailor can take in a trouser waist without drastic ill effects to them?

    I particularly have in mind pin stripe suit trousers. I've seen some pre-owned suits on ebay that are of interest, but would need to be "taken in" more than an inch at the trouser waist (and probably the jacket, as well). Seems like that would be a bit much even assuming a good tailor...

    sorry but the only thing that's not "bank meeting boring" are the red socks...

    Looking to get some more pants for work(IT corp enviroment, business casual/casual). I'm interested in a slimmer fit and was looking at JCrew's slim fit chinos but was wondering if there were any other options?

    BB Milano, Mabitex (Some still on B&S), Incotex. I would avoid chinos at work unless you want to look like an IT guy.... whoops, sorry. [​IMG]

    Is there a general guideline about what pocket squares are supposed to contrast/match/accentuate? Should the play off the shirt, brighten the tie, pull together matching the shoes?

    I'll second the BB Milanos. Picked up a pair of red chinos on clearance for some spring outfits, so I've only played dress up with them, but the fit seems great.

    un-cuffing the bottom of pants legs ...
    my main concern is that the fabric may show different levels of wear after dry cleaning and general fading
    anyone experience good and bad cases?
