    He's 6'8, 38 waist, no clue about jacket size. I'm assuming he need something made to measure but I don't even know where to start. Any suggestions/recommendations?

    You don't mention a price range.

    Is his height the only reason you're leaning towards made to measure?

    I joined after lurking for some time, so hello everyone. My boyfriend (late 20s) has pretty much just given up and is a cheapskate when it comes to clothing to begin with. Getting him to buy new stuff is like pulling teeth. As we get older, we get invited to more weddings each year. He wore a wrinkled flannel to his last job interview. [​IMG] He needs a suit.

    I have to remind myself it's a blessing he can't just go to the local cheapy dept. store and buy some atrocity.


    I'm 6'5 with 38" waist and wear a 44L. The sleeves and overall length are perfect.

    He would probably need something like a 44L/XL. He might get away with buying a 44L and lengthening the sleeves and overall length. Trouser length should just be okay, as they will come unhemmed (hopefully). If not, he'll be looking for something like a 37" inseam on the trousers.

    Anything that looks good with tan shoes? I'd pair them with lighter-colored jeans.

    Got a couple pair of really nice, slimmer, flat front black wool/cashmere pants. Any idea how I could casual these up a bit? They seem OK, maybe a little fashuny, for dressy occasions, but look off with my casual wardrobe. What kind of shirts should I be trying out?

    Also: Horsehair belts: yes or no?

    I have a cheap sport coat from H&M that fits me very well but the shoulders are for more structured than I'd like them to be. Would a tailor be willing to take out the padding for a softer, more casual fit?

    I'm wondering the same thing. I saw on someone's blog (maybe a poster here) how to remove the polyester lining from an H&M jacket for a slinkier look and cooler feel.

    the pants are too long.
    I agree, the pants are about an inch or at least 3/4" too long. As is the jacket.

    Picked up a like new navy blazer thrifting last week.. I really dislike the buttons though. They're flat and shiny metal and are a little bit scratched up. Does anyone know where I can buy some replacement buttons? I need the two big buttons on the front and 4 smaller ones on each sleeve. And what buttons should I go with? Brass?

    right here, right now
    Need a pair of black laceups to wear mainly with sport coats and odd trousers. Would you choose a cap toe or plan toe. ( I am thinking plain, but would like second opinions)

    Captoe. I think plain toes are too formal for most cases.

    For sport coats and odd trousers, you should be going for brown/burgundy with an even more casual design. I like perforated toes.

    Silver unless you're doing a nautical thing. Any tailor shop, JoAnn's or other local fabric store.
