    If it's a question of the PAs vs FAs, I would be fine wearing fifth aves, irrespective of colour. If it's a question of colour, some will say that black is most appropriate.

    They are non-functional, but they have fake button-hole stitching around each as well. I suppose that stitching can be undone? I should have snapped pictures of the cuff as well....

    The fit is good, if a bit short. For a casual jacket I think that is fine, but it's a matter of taste. The sleeves are no problem if there are not working button holes (tailor just moves the buttons). If they are working button holes, they must be shortened from the shoulder, which is much more expensive to have done.

    Ah, okay. I know what you mean. Can't help you, I'm afraid.

    Can someone please help me with my Brooks Brother Calfskin collection question:

    What model are the Allen Edmonds penny loafers they are offering on Brooks Brother calfskin collection?

    Also, what are the differences between the Brooks Brothers' version and the AE version of the same shoe.

    What happened to the sponsors section?

    More so, I was trying to find the belt thread section. My pant waist is 34 and most slacks I wear 34, so what size should I go by? Do I ususally buy 2 sizes up?

    I tried the two sizes up idea and my allen edmonds belt ended up being a bit snug. You might want to try to get a measurement to be safe

    Depends. Are you a Scottish sailor? Or a school girl?

    Depends on you but I think a matching kilt would be required :embar:

    Just got a medium grey dark pink pin-stripe suit today(suit only no pants), cloth from Zegna, 3-button, side vented. It fits really good, so I took it.
    any suggestion on what pants could go with this suit?

    You shouldn't wear a suit jacket with different trousers.

    If there's no pants then it's not a suit.

    And as Ich Dien says, a suit jacket should only be worn with the matching trousers. Sometimes you can break this rule without most people caring, such as a navy jacket doubling as a makeshift blazer, but certainly not with anything with pin-stripes.
