    You can get the lining of the coat redone in a contrasting color.

    IMO, you shouldn't do that. If you want a personalized garment get a bespoke jacket made. Wacky shit like constrasting everything just looks plain tacky and cheap like you bought it at a mall or something.

    Need help looking for canvas/leather-trim bags in Filson's quality/price, but in similar color combination to this Brooks Brothers' bag, i.e. british tan leather on beige canvas. Brooks Brothers have several bags but I would like to see more options/styles.

    Thanks Patrick. I just browsed through their website. They have some nice looking bags, but their color combination is not what I am looking for: british tan on beige canvas.

    Apparently I shouldn't have put a period after my link: http://www.express.com/suits-1457/index.ens

    I've tried on tons of "slim fit" suits around town, and I can't find anything that doesn't look terrible on me. I don't think there is a J. Press or Ralph Lauren near me. There is a BB, though, so I'll look into those. I have been intending to try a suit from ModernTailor.

    ive heard good things too. Keep in mind that the tan on any bag will turn darker with age and wear. ALthough I completely understand refusing to settle for something you desperately want and can't manage to find. I bet you can email them and see if they do MTO?

    I'm new to the site and have been looking around the classifieds for some new suits/blazers. How do you measure a jacket? I have one that fits now and is labeled 38R but have had it altered and was wondering the correct way of taking the measurements on it so I can compare to items listed in the classifieds.

    It's likely okay, but it's difficult to give you a definite answer without seeing a picture.
