Trying to get some insight on the SM cotton dress pants, such as these:


I'm wondering how they wear. I'm looking for an alternative to wool odd trousers to pair with sportcoats. Do they hold a crease? How do they work with cuffs? Sizing, drape, silhouette, etc.? Any info would be helpful from those who own these trousers. Appreciate it.

I think the biggest thing I like on Neo is slightly longer length and slightly larger lapels. Everything else is secondary.
I was replying to the Riva guy. He was saying that people post fit pics in neos on here, and they don’t look good. I’d be fine having a neo w/o 3r2. The burgundy check that I’ve posted is basically that.

Oh I know the intent behind the post, was just speaking for myself.

Isn't neo a 3r2.5 and not a true 3r2?

That jacket looks great as hell, I'm tempted to buy it. How does it pair with trousers that are: cream, khaki, navy? What about dark jeans?

I have more green jackets than any other colors. If it's dark enough it's ok for a funeral. How often do you go to a funeral anyway?

Yea 3r2 is the stupidest thing ever introduced to a jacket. Either make it a real 3 button or 2. If you want added sprezz do it through other ways.
I only been to one funeral and 3 weddings so far.

I didn't get a chance to go to Suit Supply yesterday, but I am planning on going today soon. They close at 6

I’ve only worn it with grey so far. I’d like to try it with the cream linen sondrio.

I remember this was mentioned previously, but the green seersucker: tight jacket waist, tight trouser waist, very roomy seat, thigh and legs? Is that right?

Yes to all, other than the trousers waist. I can’t speak to that, as I sized up with the intention of bringing in the waist. I have this suit on now. Get it.

in relation to the post about the code not applying I had emailed CS in regards to a sport coat where the coupon didn’t apply but wasn’t in the exclusions. Their response was that they would send it to the developer but I could purchase and email them and they would refund the difference.

Thanks. I size up on the waist to get more room in the seat and thighs. Maybe this time I can go down a size.
