    Is this suit too out there for my first suit?
    I can't see the suit. The link goes to the homepage.

    Yes/No (or better deal?): Florsheim Rockit Chukka for $84 on Amazon (30% off orders over $100)?

    @jesot I'd honestly just get a pair of Clarks.

    @theconnman Still nothing. The closest I could find on Suitsupply was the washington grey stripe, so I'm going to assume it looks much like it, only with a plain grey fabric

    I wouldn't go with it for your first suit. I'm not sure about those lapels being so wide, and light grey's not quite as versatile as navy or charcoal.

    And Peak lapels are a kind of statement, for ones first suit, going with the notch lapels is probably safer, until you know for sure what you like.

    @Domino Eh, I look at the choice between them and notches on a suit as deciding which is more flattering to your particular body type. Peaks are somewhat dressier, but 9/10 times they'll fit in just as well as notches.

    How possible is it to shorten a jacket? Have a Ludlow in a 36R and I should have gotten a 36S. They apparently don't make the jacket anymore, and if they did, the fabric may be from a different mill. Would a tailor be able to make that happen? I wouldn't need too mac chopped to be honest.

    Assuming it's just a couple inches, I doubt it'd be a huge problem. In my limited experience with a couple tailors, shortening by ~1.5 inches is never an issue, and it tends to be relatively inexpensive.
