Call me maximum overtrad, but I don't like when people wear practical pieces despite not doing the activity. Wear a gun patch sweater when and if you shoot only, or if you're such a fanatic for hunting that you basically only own this type of sweater and everybody knows it. Wearing this shit just at random is like wearing breeches and Le Chameau boots to go grocery shopping or to a movie.

(Yes I have unreasonable opinons about boat shoes, why do you ask?)

>That big shoulder patch ruins that sweater for me.
That may be so, but it's part of gun patching; that's where the stock of the rifle goes so there's a patch to prevent wear.

Personally what I dislike about that sweater is that they used a shiny, fakey-looking morocco for the leather, it looks very unattractive and clashes with the textile to boot.

>> No.14702755

Pro: Excellent value proposition in most cases, much better results than typical OTR menswear.

Con: Mainly horrible modern cuts; cloth is typically not great. At the point where you're knowledgeable enough to arrange to fix this yourself you most likely have access to significantly better options so in that sense it's a trap.

Synthesis: Suit Supply is good for what they are, but they're less TIP than GQ, with Italian-based styling. It's a great choice if you want to look "smart" but also blend in with normies, e.g. typical 20- or 30-something office workers. You'll be a cut above most of them and most likely match those who are "interested", who are likely to have exactly enough superficial knowledge to also get their shit made at Suit Supply and recognize yours. This type of person will remark on you as well dressed.

Dressing trad is the closest equivalent. Dress a bit carelessly. Nothing exact though, you'll have to LARP it if you want the full Ivy experience. English clothes are the best, historically most Euros who could afford it had a London tailor even if they were Hungarian or some shit.

The silver lining for you is that nobody in plebland can tell the fucking difference between trad, ivy and prep anymore anyway so you can basically do whatever you want as long as you're okay with being seen as an eccentric in the first place.

Solid, but learn to tie your tie better. The knot looks loose and the blade is just an indistinct crumple. It will take you literally ten minutes to learn to dimple a tie properly. I guess you might've been going for a double dimple, but that blade isn't wide enough for that and you'd definitely need to tighten up the knot anyway for it to work.

Pocket squares are not cheap. High-end ones should cost around €50 to €60, such as drakes. I have recently bought a nice yellow chiardi pocket square for €25 on a local shop on sale.
You can find pocket squares for about €30 without discounts on shops such as Massimo Dutti or Suitsupply, but they won’t be as nice.
Do remember that there are 2 kinda of pocket squares: the regular decorative squares, which are made out of silk, wool or similar fine materials; and the ones which are intended for actual use, which are cheaper and almost always white and made out of cotton.
You can try thrifting, but personally, I have never seen good deals on pocket squares on thrift stores, unlike ties and cuff links.

and... actually pretty much the entire post after that as well. My point was that Suit Supply is great for people who don't want to learn that skill, or who want or need to blend in with office normies rather than stick out as genuinely well-dressed and with a personal style (and thus inevitably in some sense eccentric).

Personally though, I would never buy a suit or jacket online. Not only because it's a crap shoot as to whether the shoulder fit is good and then you'll have to go through the rigmarole of returns or flipping if it's not good, but also because of the pure tactile pleasure of feeling the cloth, trying on the prospective item, discussing it with a knowledgeable seller or ideally maker.

Trousers, sure. Fire away. I can get that shit taken in, let out, hemmed, whatever, no problem. If the cloth's bad quality I can take the loss on the chin, wear the pair until they die, just never buy from that seller again. With a suit it's different.

It depends a lot on what you'll wear the shoes with and how much money you have, but you can't really go wrong with a pair of boots for winter. Meermin has a decent price point to quality, decent selection of styles and their MTO is also boots right now, including a pair made in shell cordovan (better, but more expensive, than calf leather).

More generally, a pair of burgundy/oxblood beefroll penny loafers are casual and pretty versatile; they ought to look smart while not making you feel uncomfortably dressy.

Im a repeat customer (4 shirts 1 suit 4 trousers) so been through a few iterations with some awesome results and some not so great.
One thing id recommend is putting 'unusual' specs (like super big collars, undarted jackets) in the notes section IN ADDITION to selecting it in the Select Your Style. They tend to miss things (pajeet) so better to be super explicit.

As for the shirt collars, i go unlined unfused 4 inch collar length 4 inch spread, although im still experimenting. If you want your collar to have a soft roll these are the option. In my experience even the soft lining is too stiff and theyll just stand up straight when unbuttoned

I've got three of them: blue, white and uni stripes, and I wanna go yellow and pink to complete the collection. I'm from Brisbane as well btw and yeah you can't wear these year-round, but my approach has been to experiment with seasonal fabrics instead of lightweight ocbds.

trousers are pretty great. im not super particular about quality (stitch density, etc.) but it seems pretty nice for the price point, although obv this depends on the fabric you choose.
The trousers, more so than the shirts, have been hit or miss, but when it's a hit, they're damn good.
One thing I learned though: for softer fabrics (linen, worsted wool), consider taking away ~1cm from the seat/thighs etc., and for harder fabrics (sturdy chinos), consider adding ~1cm. These additions/subtractions are relative to the basic 'trial' chino pants, which are a softish chino fabric (although they seem to cycle them around so dunno if it's still the same selection of fabrics).
my first four trousers were the trial chinos, a linen, a worsted (part of the suit), and heavy chinos (that were too fucking small cause i didnt know about the adding ~1cm thing...), all in the 'continental' sorta style: double pleated, big fat waist band with side adjusters.

It's a movie made in the 1960s, set in the 1920s. And, Cosby's stuffy and outdated charatcher is wearing an 1890s suit.

Yes they are the same person. I'm thin so the pants fit me well. It's a bit too low rise however as >>14708277 said.

>> No.14708850

Yeah it's kind of tight but since I'm thin it looks a hell of a lot better than even some slim fit clothes. Massimo Dutti is kind of way above average ere anyways,

Any recommendations on how to pad them out a bit? I was thinking of essentially putting two insoles in, does anyone have any recommendations for a specific product for that? Or just get something cheap, as the better sole will go on top of it anyways?

I bought one of those, although on a different colour. The collar itself is bigger irl, but it’s shoulders are not that great and keep getting out of shape when you open a button or two.
They are pretty cool as well. I expected that they would be worse than “regular” cotton shirts, but I find it cooler than them.
The buttons are crap made out of plastic, but that is what is to be expected at the price point.
I find their regular corduroy pants of this season to be very average. They do not drape very well, and are tabby back. Some of their models with a bigger wale are quite pretty, though.
I will check them again on the midseason sales.

Nowadays buttons are made of plastic unless you go over the 80€ line, where you might find motherpearl. Wood buttons are also rare to find

Should I buy it or not? It's probably regular fit since its a "grandpa" shop

Fellow French bro. Try scavini. If you live in Paris you can go and try their trousers on. The single pleat is their higher rise model. Otherwise I'd recommend highly to buy natalino, a new UK brand.

Sure why not. The buttons are fugly though.

Could always get it tailored

>> No.14709078

Yeah, somewhat to be expected on the price point. I have never seen wooden buttons myself, though. Maybe i will order a suit with them to see how they keep up with time.

>> No.14709112

Those ones from the shirt I photographed >>14708995 seem to be made of wood.

We should put up trouser and blazer/suit guides. For trousers in the UK/Europe I can recommend the following
Berg and berg
Yoox: zanella, iconotex
Oliver Brown

I've never needed to get a shirt tailored. How do they do it to preserve the pane pattern?
