    What Are You Wearing Today 2.0?

    I never thought of Seersucker and academia going together, but I would agree that he looks distinguished :)

    What Are You Wearing Today 2.0?

    Windowpane and plaid... I never thought of that pattern combination before, yet it works.

    Having hard time finding a men's belt that fits

    Seen it... Debated it. But Andy has given much wisdom as to why not to go this route.

    Having hard time finding a men's belt that fits

    I am looking to purchase a rather "formal" belt, therefore it would have a buckle and holes. But thanks for the suggestions...

    That is right in the ballpark of what I am looking to spend. Thanks for that information.

    Having hard time finding a men's belt that fits

    I need some help here, Gentlemen. I am looking for a black dress belt that is of quality, rather than something which lacks durability, but I am running into a peculiar situation because many retailers that are in partnership with AAAC do not stock a belt that is my size in their men's...

    Looking for a used suit for purchase

    I am kind of an odd sized individual, so any prospective suit likely will need to be tailored. I am now a 28 waist with a 32-34 inseam (depending on whether I want all of my shoe showing or not), and my jacket would need to be size 38 with sleeve length of 30 inches. If a trade (including any...

    Looking for a used suit for purchase

    I am looking for a suit that someone is no longer using and willing to sell it at a reasonable price. I even have several, which are now too large for me and cannot be altered to my smaller physique without ruining the suit, that I might work in as a trade. if anyone is interested, I am open to...

    Stitched-up pockets in a new jacket

    I have a seam ripper in my sewing kit, and this works well for situations like this...

    Correct pants length

    I saw a early 20's guy in an outfit that I assumed his "internship" as a pharmacy student required while working at the pharmacy (side note... he was wearing a university pharmacy student jacket, so that is why I knew). His pants were very short; to the point of showing above the ankle and it...

    Custom made suit advice

    What a total buzzkill! I patiently waited for that trip to Men's Warehouse... And I open a totally different gift from my mother on Christmas Day, learning that the custom suit was not my present at all; but rather just something she "mentioned as an idea". The gift I did get was much...

    Custom made suit advice

    I pulled out one of my (now way too large) suits that was stashed away in the back of the closet to see if that would be the "style" I would duplicate. It's conservative and seems to "follow suit" (no pun intended) with things that upr_crust presents to us in the "What Are You Wearing"...

    Custom made suit advice

    Thank you for all of that very helpful information. I now feel more confident in how to go about the "process".

    Custom made suit advice

    The conversation I had with her is this... I look at a book which has swatch samples of fabrics that I can touch, I choose the lining if I want a lining, I can choose what type of pockets (ticket, watch, etc...), and exact measurements are taken to fit me personally. I can have this altered...

    Custom made suit advice

    You raised a good point as to where this suit is being ordered; I now have a little fear I will not get the quality I hope for. My mom (yes, I still receive parental gifts as a grown man) has mentioned something about Men's Warehouse (sorry if I violated some guideline here, but I had to answer...

    Custom made suit advice

    It sounds as if I may be getting a custom made to order suit for Christmas. I have done the "off the rack" tailored to fit thing before, but given this this likely will be my first truly custom suit, I would appreciate some very helpful advice so I get the "perfect suit".

    What Are You Wearing Today 2.0?

    I never thought about "mixing/matching" an under-vest with a suit. I love how the tan vest contrasts with the coffee suit with a tan windowpane pattern. Something to keep in mind if and when I add something like this to my wardrobe.

    I would definitely want the Flannel Wool Trousers in Dark Grey because I do not have anything like that in my wardrobe...
