What are the other elements of the jacket and outfit?
If anyone is planning on buying anything during the RL sale currently ongoing, but you didn't get a code, don't hesitate to contact Robert in the RRL thread over at SW&D. He's taking orders and supplying the discount code, and has helped me out with an alternate transaction method when my CC didn't work. Just ordered some Marlow Penny loafers
You're not the only one; it's the recent influx of new members, some of which are asking obscenely stupid questions and making pointless posts.
That's just a jacket, not a suit...
Also re: all your other comments, I think you need to go out and start trying things out instead of just educating yourself about suiting via the internet
Having been responsible for a few stupid comments myself, I think the wiki will help this. I am going to write something on places to buy suits for newcomers in Aus, if you guys help me edit this we will cut out some unnecessary and repetitive posts.
Sorry. I made a few stupid posts. I won't ask anymore questions here.
Anyway, great idea Dartagnan, it would help people like myself out, a lot.
Firstly sorry If my questions are really stupid And Gerry they will probably be paired with a lot of things; anywhere from casual chinos to grey trousers (whatever works).
When you say "Is a navy or blue odd jacket more casual?", are you asking if a lighter blue jacket is more casual than a navy jacket?
You can make it as formal as you like - a lighter blue sportscoat, grey wool trousers and suede oxfords is going to look more formal than a blazer with jeans and boat shoes. It's about the elements of the jacket and what you wear it with. Patch or welted waist pockets? Patch or welted chest pocket?
It's about more than just the colour.
anyone know where I can get a good natural veg-tanned belt that will age and darken with a nice patina over time? To be worn with denim.
Patch pockets with welted chest pocket. Yay or nay?
Please edit if you are sick of newbies like me asking questions again and again.
Yay but depends on the context. I have this configuration for my blue P Johnson suit because I want to be able to use the trousers and jacket separately.
I didn't do this for my charcoal 3 piece because it was meant to be more formal.
Thought-provoking question. Over the course of my lurking of SF, lots of the big timers have posted pictures of jackets with all patch pockets, and I've generally thought it a good way to go. And I gather from my reading that there is some measure of resistance (and more) to the welted and patch combination in the SF hive mind. But you asked the question, and I did some searching, and I turned up something that I quite like (Drake's):
Consider my opinion changed - I quite prefer the combination.
Apologies for this question but its after hours:
What is the current lead time on a PJ suit in terms of 1. Getting an appointment in Melbourne and 2. Getting your suit.
1. Within a week but some blocks of time are freer than others
2. Usually 5 weeks
