    Such are the ways of a 22 year old ;) If others are wearing jackets I will too but I don't want to look like a try hard.

    I live in New York City, same difference. Worse here probably.

    5 degrees warmer on average in DC than NYC. Besides, if I wore a jacket nobody would be able to see how great my tailored and darted Borrelli shirts fit!

    OP said he is going to be working in finance. I don't think the JCrew suit is conservative enough if his goal is to look professional at a finance job. I'm not familiar enough with Suit Supply to evaluate, but the Brooks Brothers suggestion is a good one.

    Oh, that's right. That was a poor choice on my end. Ludlow might be somewhat fashion forward for finance.

    Suit supply's Napoli cut might be a good option for a relatively slim but professional looking suit.

    I disagree. I work in finance in nyc and there's a lot guys who are wearing more tailored and slimmer cut suits around now. I do like Brooks Brothers though so it's nice to have a range of things both conservative and edgy. I think it shows you're versatile and little more creative in the way you approach things. just my 2c.

    I dont know where that poster is located, but New York is generally on the progressive side of things, unless you work at a very conservative office. And he's just starting out so it might not be a good idea to rock the boat or anything.

    I guess I've lived and worked here so long that I don't think Jcrew Ludlow is rocking the boat. But I suppose in other places you're 100% correct.

    Yeah, I grew up around the city and lived there for about 5 years. I guess it just depends who you work for and what kind of clients you have to interact with.

    How can this be right?


    Granted, I'm a noob, but I thought if I was a 39.5 chest, I should get a 40 blazer. This Hilfiger chart says if I should be in a 38. Worse, it says 38's cover up to 42in chests. How can this be right? Wouldn't that mean all Hilfiger blazers come large out of the box? Anybody have experience with their blazers and can shed some light here? Thanks!

    Would be obsessive to always put my suit back in its cover? I only wear my suits about once a week or two, so there's a long lag in between. I obsessively put them back in their covers (the bag they come in), but it's sort of a hassle removing them. Worth it? Crazy?

    It takes what, a minute to put the cover on and take it back off? Knock yourself out, far from some of the obsession levels we see around here (distilled water for laundry...) and it's not going to hurt anything or cost you money.

    I've read that you shouldn't store your suits in the plastic garment bags, because they need to breathe. If you are sticking them in breathable bags made of natural material you are fine.

    I've got a blue suit... deciding whether pink or lavender looks better with it.

    The suit color is about like this: http://cdn.styleforum.net/d/dd/208x700px-LL-dd0b7869_P3079.jpeg
    I've got a solid shirt with a paisley-fashioned tie and pocket square, all in light pink. I also have them in lavender. I would be wearing black shoes with the combination.

    What are your thoughts?
