1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    I already have this: Pants I'm thinking of getting this: Jacket to go with it. Do you guys think it's worth it, especially on sale?

    For $50, why not? Not that I'm a fan of the blackwatch plaid trend, but at least you'll have an entire suit (whatever that's worth to you).

    That seems to be a child-size sport coat.

    The plaids don't match ... Look at the navy sections.

    A bit over the top IMHO plus the plaid is off as per Doc's reply but at that price get it and wear it like crazy

    Looks cheap (it is but it does have to look that way). I would stay away from cashmere unless it is actually good cashmere. Stick to wool if you are on that budget. I cant stand it when cheap brands make products with "luxury fabrics". it never looks good.

    But you are on the right path. The color is nice to wear with jeans. Chinos are ok too but please dont wear the blazer with silmilar color chinos!

    How about this to go with chinos and jeans. The measurements in chest and shoulder are right for me and it looks really similar to the Isaia Napoli sport coat in BS but much cheaper, albeit this is probably not as nice material-wise since I'm 99.9% sure its just some Asian sweatshop made knockoff lol. What you guys think? Yay or nay.

    True. I saw a blue velvet blazer at Zara - for less than $100. It looked cheap!
