    It'll look like that if you ask your tailor to make it look like that. And no, I don't think it would be rude.

    More or less, but less much strongly since a tie integrates into an outfit better, interacting with a collar that's designed to be closed with some form of something tied around it. But you certainly won't find me wearing one in an environment where the formality level doesn't demand one.

    Still, I'd think they're far more useful if they reply than the general consensus of this thread ;)

    +1. They are experts, we are not. That said, I wouldn't bring in the waist for fear of making your vents flair out (which they re just starting to do). The fit looks good to me, assuming you want it that short.

    I think I had this suit and believe it's perfectly fine. The key is in the shirt, tie, square and shoes. Done right, this can be awesome.

    I have a suit with a similarly narrow pinstripe. I wear it in the office all the time, but always with a solid blue or white shirt and a conservative tie.

    Which tie with the new suit? Dark brown tie or light brown tie? Shirt is light blue.

    ^^ The reppe tie gives a nice pattern to the outfit.

    What do you think of this trench? It is a good price but they have a no return policy so I could be stuck.

    Can pinstripes be too narrow?

    Really depends. If you love it and is a good price, you kick yourself of you don't get it. But if your hesitating too much then maybe you don't want it that bad or you think it looks nt good on you.
