Do I have enough shirts??
Huh? I thought you said you were around 40. So either you had that suit made when you were 11, or it was made as a bespoke item for someone else...
A semi-cutaway casual plaid is a strange beast, but apart from that all good. IMO
@jfrater I was referring to the longevity of the styling of clothe and specifically suits in general (not a Poole customer). It's a challenge to make stylistic selections that will pass muster in 20-40 yrs time.
@jfrater , FWIW nrs. 2, 4, 6, 7 & 10 for me.
That's one of my favorite Clags fits. The tonality, textures, and saturation level of each piece produces coherence and harmony. If the checks in the shirt were any more saturated or the tie were a different color, I'm not sure this works.
jfrater, no quibbles with any of the tie advice provided so far. I'm a huge fan of tie #2, but it's going to dominate any fit it's part of, so think carefully about its use.
Haha it was an eBay purchase I was indeed 11 at the time of creation
Consider a dedicated summer wardrobe to survive the humid DC summers. Shirts are not a bad place to start. I.e. Linen, cotton/linen, voile
That's a damn lineup of shirts, Spandexter.
I'm still using plastic hangers. Been using them since I had a need for dress shirts and haven't seen the need to buy nice wooden hangers yet. Every time I think about it, I buy a tie instead.
Challenge set! I'll try it tomorrow
That is just beautiful.
Jfrat, 1,4,8,9 for me. All versatile and look nice. I think 2 and 3 are cool, but not easily worn, would not get rid of those, use them with care.
Hi all, still trying to find a great fitting sportcoat. I'm giving Luxire a shot for a shirt and pants, and if that works out I'm thinking of taking Clag's advice on having a jacket made. Finding a 40L in my price range has been very elusive so far, so MTM might be a good route. Here's a couple fits I wore recently, wondering if any are close enough to use as a template:
40L in Eidos Tipo
I'm thinking this is a little long? I measured it at 31".
I'm thinking this is a little short, and I measured it at 30". Does that mean a sweet spot for length is probably 30.5? I'm also thinking I could loose a couple centimeters off the back and lower the button stance an inch.
