    Would a medium blue spier and mackay suit be an acceptable stand in for a navy blue suit?
    I will be heading to a conference where I may be able to interview for a post grad fellowship. In this case should i cough up the extra money for a true navy suit?


    this is the medium blue sharkskin suit I was thinking about.

    Probably due to the influence of Mad Men, that’s the most popular color in New York right now. I think it is fine for a conference with an interview.

    Be aware that medium blue is a color—not a “neutral,” like charcoal or navy—and must be accessorized carefully. You can wear almost any tie with a neutral but the shade has to be right with a color. I don’t think the lavender tie in the photo works as well as it could.

    In my opinion, the best looks for medium blue right now are matte/textured monochromatic (e.g., blue grenadine) or something with true contrast, like orange or pink. For an interview I'd stick with matte blue.

    I like that suit a lot, but a navy suit has a lot more uses, if you're debating between the two, and will only buy one.

    Does anyone have any sizing experience with Nordstrom shirts? Specifically, is "trim fit" sizing consistent among their in-house brands? I like the fit of the Nordstrom Rack trim fit, and was wondering if the measurements are the same for trim fit shirts from main line Nordstrom and John W. Nordstrom.

    No idea about rack, but the others are consistent. I think 1901 is different but do not have any. Nordstrom has measurements on their site.

    I took a peek at the measurements on Nordstrom.com, and indeed Nordstrom and John W. are sized the same. My question is whether they fit the same as the Rack branded trim fit. I may end up having to scour the clearance section at my Nordstrom Rack to see if I can find a mainline Nordstrom or John W. shirt to try on.

    I have a few (4) brooks brothers Madison suits sized 41R and pants 34/31. Recently I've lost a bit of weight (15lbs) and the Fitzgerald cut is better for me. Better to have suits tailored to fit (pants are big in the waist and jacket feels big) or just to pick up new suits in the Fitzgerald cut which is overall a better fit for me?

    Four BB suits is a lot to trash. Find a good alterations tailor and have him experiment with one and see what he can do.

    Can anyone recommend a solid pair of basic/essential linen pants? Preferably a retail option (I'd like to grab a pair before I leave town tomorrow), but online works too.

    Good idea. I should mention they are BB Factory, not sure how much that matters but still a decent investment in them.
