    Thanks, I need another pair of dress shoes. I typically buy AE because you can get them at good prices when seconds go on sale. I have park avenues, strands, and van ness. I have been looking at a "monks-strap" similar to these for a while, which of these three do you think is best suited for suits? I threw in the lombard because I like lace-ups...I will be purchasing the shoe in black. Lombard Boston Norwich

    I like them too, but I see what he is saying. cufflinks/jeans just seems off to me too.

    +1. Also cufflinks with casual leather jacket. (or lizardskin - appointed denim jacket as part of a Canadian tuxedo)!

    The whole 'cufflinks witha sportcoat / blazer / open neck thing has been done before on here without a consensus IIRC, but mixing such disparate levels of formality as in Victor's pic just doesn't work for me.

    Got a feeling I should take it to my tailor to have the skirt flare out abit more?
    I don't know why my shoulders pucker up so much.... looks fine when I'm fixing myself in the mirror.

    If you skip the pics, and just list the incredible brands you wear, you will inherit the mantle of the legendary KitonBrioni.

    Is it because of the jacket or an alteration problem?........or both? :confused:

    Lufty - this is one of your best fitting jackets. And its being thrown off by the baggy pants. I think it usually works if you go baggy on baggy ala o/o or fitted on fitted ala almost everyone else ... lol.


    i agree with this - first thing that jumped out at me. the shirt is nice and so is the tie. both with the p/s don't jive.


    the buttoning points are too low. its causes some problems with the midsection of your body. unfortunately, i dont know if it is something a tailor can remedy.

    Jacket. Shoulders extend too far. You'll see "divots" where the arm meets the shoulder. A competent tailor can fix.

    I see it now! I knew it looked a bit funny (still learning ;))
    I'll have to live with it I guess. Not bad overall for $70

    I'm debating this.... kinda hesitant though when the cost for alteration is more than the cost of the entire suit.


    Ah yes! I LOVE this tie! Mucho thanks again :)
