    Online tailor translation question.

    Anybody move from moderntailor to My Tailor on shirts? I was wondering if there was any significant difference in how they cut the shirt based on the measurements.

    I haven't tried new cures in a while...not sure how they fit in comparison. Petit standards are new standards but slimmer in the waist and thigh...the rise may be a bit lower too.

    Can you recommend me any wallet manufacturer in England that makes inexpensive wallets? I can only think of Sage Brown and Maxwell Scott.

    Hello everyone, I just joined this forum not very long ago. The information here is just overwhelming, love it but at the same time, lost! I am 26, 6'0" 180 lb, solid build. Never in my life wore suit/blazer or anything along those lines before. My work does not require it and I just wear a shirt with jeans/chino pretty much 99% of the time. However, I do think its time I kind of step it up a little bit style wise.

    So here is my question, where do I start reading on casual blazers and suits? I don't even have the slightest clue what to type into the search bar... I am in no hurry and willing to take time reading.

    Currently I own 0 suits/blazers. After going through some posts, I pretty much got the idea a navy summer/spring blazer is a good place to start. What do I need to know before I buy/order? Price is not the biggest issue but keeping it around 600 would be nice.

    Pretty much I am looking for one of those " ***newbies*** READ FIRST before post and ask for advice on suit/blazer " thread or anything similar.

    Thanks in advance !

    A forum policy question: Is it ok to start a thread to ask stuff like "I'm wearing this suit and these shoes, what shirt goes with it?" and, if so, which forum? Men's Clothing? Just thought I'd ask because I don't really see threads like that there (having gone through just a few pages). Thanks!

    Suede chukkas are fine. Try the unlined pair by Alden.

    There was a tradition, now largely forgotten like most clothing traditions, of not wearing suede in summer. It's one I like, but I'm in the minority and few have even heard of it. If it were me, I'd get a light tan suede, like the Alden tan, rather than brown.

    For this suit (it is a med/light gray, but actually a white/black birdseye pattern, at least I think that is what it is called):

    and a Lavender shirt.

    Would you do:

    1. A silver grenadine tie and white pocket square w/ light blue edge.

    2. This tie (with or without PS):

    [​IMG]

    3. Something completely different?

    That would work fine....or, you could go to something else....whatever works for you (and yes, if you have a pocket on your jacket wear a pocket square)

    Cheers!

    :facepalm:

    Desert boots (aka suede chukkas) are designed for warm weather.
