Hi, I'm going to be getting a bespoke suit made up in Singapore with some fabric I intend to order from Dugdale Bros. Mostly thanks to the sf forum and tc forum I know what to look for in terms of fit. In terms of style and fashion however I'm an ignorant but unwilling philistine. I believe the tailor, should, help me get the best from my body but I'd like to have some idea of the style I should go for so I have a personal opinion on the matter. Also I'm trying to avoid looking like I've been tailored in a particular part of the world and hope to achieve a more cosmopolitan look (if one exists). While Zegna and Hugo Boss models look okay doing -their- thing my body is very much unlike theirs. I'm 5'11", wide shoulders thin waist and large ass (mostly muscle though I have probably 12-14% bodyfat, so large ass think footballer). Rather dark features and a relatively big head (judging by my motorcycle helmet). The suit will be for business but being from Australia need not be extremely formal. Style wise I like to be incognito with some eccentricities only noticeable to those who take a second look. So questions: Fabric choice - Was thinking of grey (e.g. like asphalt)- something like gshen's choice here - http://gshen65.tumblr.com/post/5895339386 ... OR type of dark + pinstripes: http://www.dormeuil.jp/fashion/index.htm Is the grey too "not business"? Is the dark + pinstripes too "conservative"? I don't imagine there's much to fabric choice within the median range that requires specialty knowledge but I just wanted to check. Is there some unwritten rule that for heavy set features/dark hair you should go lighter or darker or something? Fabric: I understand 13oz to be a good weight. I think in S.E. Asia they tend to stick with under 13oz and little canvassing etc due to the heat. Is this correct or is 13oz maybe considered heavier/lighter than what I'm thinking? Assuming 13oz would be okay all year round in Australia.. Pockets - I like straight bottom pockets, slanted top pocket and definitely only 2 bottom pockets (not 2 on the right and 1 on the left like I've seen on some.. ). Is this unfashionable/too conservative? What's the difference in terms of style (e.g. conservative or not) in regards to having the flaps over the bottom pockets? Lapel hole - Some suits have a hole on the lapel, what is this for? Is there some rule as to when they should be there? Lapel size - Is there some specific rule to this in terms of matching for your face or...? Does anyone have any links where typically different suit styles are compared for body types or a good page where I can view suits on real people (e.g. not thin/zegna models)?
