    Scenario: Girlfriend's friends' private holiday party at a nice hotel
    Dress code: Whatever you would like/be comfortable in...the few people I know are going to head in somewhat dressed up, likely a suit, no tie, etc.

    Question: I have been wanting to try the suit sans tie plus sweater combo. I have a medium-navy suit and was thinking of a dark green sweater over a windowpane button up, can it be done, or will it all be too busy?

    That could work. May get a little hot if you start dancing or moving around too much indoors.

    Not too busy in terms of color/pattern, but the sweater fabric or cut or texture seems a touch casual to wear under that suit. Maybe under a tweed jacket. I'm not sure how to articulate what I'm seeing, but it seems just a little bit off.

    I think I'd want to see it all put together for a final opinion.
    Intentionally overdressed for almost every occasion.

    Thanks! I ended up not liking the look as much as I was hoping and went more traditional. Good thing, because it was warm in the room!

    Anyone know a good place to buy a merino wool fair isle sweater? Lambs wool is a bit too hot for my location, even in winter, and cotton sweaters don't hold us as well in my experience. Thanks!

    Anyone have experience with the fit of Jomers’ shirts? Considering picking up their new shaggy flannel shirt, but unsure how slim, slim fit is. For reference I’m about Joe’s size.

    I bought a slim fit Jomers shirt recently - the washed button down in burgundy/rose gingham. It's slim, but not button-puckering-ly so. I will say the sleeves are pretty long. When buttoned, they constantly creep down over the bottom of the palm of my hand. Other than that, though, it fits nicely in the chest and shoulders.

    Merino and fair isle is a rare combination. The fair isle pattern usually goes with more burly yarns, as befits a pattern from the islands north of Scotland.

    I recently purchased the BR Italian Motion-Stretch Blazer. I really like it, it looks great and I dig the flexibility of the fabric. My problem comes in with the sleeves - I didn't notice right away, but the suit has functioning sleeve buttons. I have fairly short arms, so I nearly always have to have my sleeves shortened. Normally I would just return the blazer and move on, but I really want to make this one work. I need the arms shortened about 2 inches for the length to be great, which is halfway in to the buttons. I ordered a 40R, so theoretically I could order a 40S which would have an inch shorter arms (according to BR's site) so tailoring would likely be a bit easier, but also would have an inch shorter body length (and the body length is pretty much dead on for me with the 40R). Should I return it for the 40S, bring it to a tailor and see what they can do, or just deal with the long sleeves?
