    Dear Styleforum:

    Where can I buy a decently priced unlined cotton check/plaid blazer? It's killing me!

    Thanks

    Quickpick for tomorrow morning, I'd be happier with a better OCBD in a very light blue, but that's not happening and I have to meet with a supplier right after class and I'd prefer to look something vaguely resembling sharp.

    Options are organized as such in spoiler

    A B

    C D

    These are pretty close to true to color. Just checking the combinations of fabrics, colors and patterns, no need for a fit critique.

    Do tell me if I need to axe the square. I'm very bad at squares.

    If you hate them all no need to respond.

    Thanks to anyone who can advise.

    I'd go for plain pocket squares with those patterned ties or vice versa. If you want to just stick with those options then I'd pick A. IMO it looks good.

    How about a partially lined linen one?

    Is there a way to have the "seller is away" notification on eBay if you don't have a store?

    I think the answer is no. If you find different, let us know.

    tyvm. I think I'll go with your preference as I'm incapable of liking any of the combinations.

    Where can I get a belt that matches my AE walnut colour shoes? Thing is I need to be able to find the belt locally here in Toronto.

    What I've seen sellers do is put a notification up on the main auction page at the top of the description; 'We'll be out of the shop from x to y, so be patient'.

    Navy suit, tan oxfords, any suggestions on shirt+tie combo? Color and patterns if possible? Wedding reception, but not the usual traditional kind so I figured I'd pull out the tan shoes

    All combinations, with the heavy textured jacket, paisley tie, and colorful ps is too much. Too many things competing for attention here. A plain tie and ps would look better I think.
