    Here is a picture of me wearing the jacket. The pieces of tape show where my collar bone and belly button are. Also, the top button actually closes at my natural waist. Although the picture does not show it the jacket has red blue and brown overchecks and the lapels are 3.5" wide.

    After seeing pictures I'd say it doesn't look that bad at all. In my head I think I was getting carried away with the description you gave. With some waist suppression and replacing missing buttons it would be a pretty solid jacket.

    Too blue? In some lights it's brighter. Spiders & Mackay, btw

    On the main page today (found here) Joe mentions Brooks Brothers is having a sale on shoes. I see they have a burgundy McAllister for sale.

    Q: How does the burgundy compare to the merlot?

    Thank you.

    I'm pretty sure they are the same, just labelled different. I have merlot mcallisters and they look just like the photos on the brooks brothers website

    edit:

    what color shoes (allen edmonds) would work with this suit?

    Definitely not too blue. In fact you can’t get more classic than your suit.

    Thanks. It is maybe bluer than that in brighter light but a fellow lawyer told me it's perfectly fine these days in court and my tailor loves it.

    Are these guys too casual to wear with slacks and a blazer? I'm mostly worried about the white stitching. Thanks!

    I think black shoes are just formal. Attempts to make them less formal can look weird like those. Just get more brown!!

    Hi, I'm getting married in August and I need suit help. It is an outdoor wedding, and my bride is wearing a white gown with no train. I've been told by a tux salesman to go with a nice tailored suit for this setting. I am more inclined to go with a suit because I will get more use out of it in the future as well. The color will be black.

    I have 2 questions really.

    First, Am I crazy for going with a suit over a tux?

    And second, is it possible to get a nice suit for under $200? I will probably have to at least supplement the cost of the suits for my groomsmen, so I have to stay on budget. I'm not including the shirt, tie, etc. Under $200 for jacket and pants. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I saw a Kenneth Cole Reaction suit for $169 at Macy's today that looked nice, but I don't own a suit, and have no idea what I'm looking for. I know I like slim fits, but one of my groomsman is pushing 300lbs.

    Please help.
