I tried to dump images I thought /fa/ would be more interested in because they kind of straddle the boundary of formal and casual, and are a lot closer to what people here could consider integrating into their fits (also because everyone here is a weeaboo in denial). If I posted only 100% accurate formal fits, it'd be pretty dull and nobody would bite

that's because it's not about fashion, you slave. it is timeless chic. it is for someone who does not follow whatever short lived, whimsical trend the leading homosexuals in the fashion industry have thought up

'forward looking' and hollow nonsense like that is just marketing jargon designed to sell the latest collections to new money proles of which countries like China and Dubai are currently full

you can't afford it, but that doesn't matter because you also can't appreciate it

Some very solid color and pattern play, although I'm not fond of the blue striped shirt with the orange striped tie in the second image. They're both fighting for visual impact in the chest area (and the scarf exacerbates the problem), and the look would be markedly improved by making either the shirt fainter or the tie darker. Otherwise, quite a standard 2015 cut.

Sorry, gingham shirt - but that's even louder and fighting the tie even harder for attention

Also, the fabric and lapel width from the earlier image reminds me a lot of a late 1940s suit that popped up on Styleforum a while ago in the vintage clothes thread. It's incredibly timeless. The only difference is the gorge height - and I find myself preferring the lower gorge of the 1940s number here in conjunction with its button stance. It allows the lapels to point towards the shoulders and accentuate them more, somehow.

Gotta say I prefer a high gorge in this case - it looks a lot more informal and just overall very chill. As I'm just in my mid twenties I've come to find that really formal suits just don't suit me yet.
>>
>>10906813
Nice suit overall though.
>>
>>10906823
That's an interesting way of thinking - I don't think I've ever heard the connection that a higher gorge = a more casual jacket, and that a lower gorge = a more formal jacket. Do you have any more examples of this?
>>
>>10906724
I love the way this outfit plays with pattern and color. The pants are bang-on perfect for a slim fitting formal trouser.

I think that the more shirt a suit shows, the more formal. A high gorge, paired with a 3/2 roll will show less shirt than a jacket with a low gorge and low buttoning.

Pic related is, for example, more formal than this >>10906804 in my opinion.

I actually really like this jacket that was posted in a recent cops thread earlier. It's got a really unique cut to it - and it's made in reference to one of the greatest movies of all time, so that's even better.

Really interested of what's being discussed in these pages
>>
>>10907510
The first one talks about stuff that we kind of understand intuitively but don't actively talk about on this board - that larger and more horizontal patterns are more "childish", and more muted and "nature colors" are more adult. While I agree that children wear brighter colours, large patterns, and horizontal stripes more often, that doesn't necessarily make their use childish. Rather, I think it speaks more about what's offered by clothing manufacturers for each age range. For example, I love horizontal-striped dress shirts but they don't appear very often, and this makes me kind of sad. I generally go with high-waisted pants, so horizontal elements on my torso like this have less of a widening effect where I don't want it and more of an effect where I do.

I've seen my share of trousers and they are great fitting like really . The main thing is the break the leg is just the right length so the cloth covers the leg and sock but doesn't bunch up. The pleats also help with the lines but they are the correct size and are tailored just right. Also the higher waist helps with it.

It can be difficult to get perfect lines like these so just hope you know a good tailor.

Sorry bro but I disagree on this >>10906724

Those pants are much too slim for even an athletic person in formal attire. But I guess that depends on your formal event. Business formal would be different than going to a gallery opening formal or the like.

It's a sweet jacket but no matter how old you are, this will look out of place and cosplay like.

Unless you are a solid 10/10, you're always gonna look like you raided your great grandpa's closet for his suits.

IMO there's a difference between timeless classics and old styles that should die.

You could always check out SuitSupply or browse Ebay for brands like Boglioli, Lardini, L.B.M. 1911 etc. They usually sell for quite cheap and occasionally have some great jackets/suits that aren't too formal. They also focus on unconstructed jackets so it's like putting on a cardigan.

The leather industry is no different than the fur industry and the wool is the worst imo (maybe cuz I saw it with my own eyes)...

I'm a big fan of contrasting buttons on suits - brown horn especially (dark brown on a dark grey suit), but corozo nut is good too. It makes the suit more casual and the jacket becomes more able to stand on its own as a sportcoat, increasing versatility.

Going for a single breasted overcoat with natural shoulders, patch pockets for a less formal look, subtle pick-stitching and rolled lapels that are quite wide. Pic related is one of their coats that caught my attention, but I wanted something slightly less formal and am thinking of that grey/brown fabric.

That's cut very nicely and would look great in your choice of fabric. If you want a less formal look, I'm thinking a back belt and envelope pockets (pictured) would be good - I have a dark grey wool corduroy overcoat with this pocket style, and I absolutely love it. The flaps can easily be tucked into the pocket and it makes for a very versatile effect.

>If you want a less formal look, I'm thinking a back belt and envelope pockets (pictured) would be good

By back belt, do you mean a martingala belt? I thought about both that and the kind of pockets your picture shows, but decided against it after talking with the tailor. He thought it would look good with heavier fabrics for winter coats, like the brown coat I linked, and wasn't really a fan of those things on lighter coats.

I wanted a coat that's really light and airy, kinda like pic related.
>>
Man, I love this whole fit.
>>
>>10911674
Right, right. My view of overcoats is skewed by the climate here and I lean more towards chunkier detailing and fabrics (similar to what's pictured) by default. Still, I think a sewn down half-belt could work well on a lighter weight coat.
>>
>>10911713
The climate is cold as a bitch here too, but as it's my first coat I wanted something I can use a large part of the year, so went with a slightly lighter coat than a full-on winter coat.

When I do get one of those, I'm thinking it'll have both the martingala belt and enveloped pockets (good for keeping snow and shit out). The belt makes it look more slim, which fits well with thicker materials imo.

As much as I like patch pockets, I don't like mixing patch lower and welt breast - either the patch pockets have to be patch with flap, or the breast pocket has to also be a patch pocket for the triple patch look. It just feels incomplete and discordant with just two plain lower patch pockets.
>>
>>10911890
the only counterargument i can think of is that the core tenant, if there is one/loosely, of american prep, is the intention mixing of formal and informal.

aesthetically, though, i agree—bad lines/unflattering to mix the two.

>>10915027
He knocks it out of the fucking park.

He knows that given his look - slightly older but not excessively so, Asian so probably not ridiculously tall, etc. - there's pressure to go super slim but he avoids that. He instead allows there to be fullness where fullness looks masculine and refined and tapers in where fullness would look baggy or inappropriate. The arms are the best example of this - they appear slightly high cut (i.e. modern), but still full, so there isn't that godawful attempt at slimming down the shoulder area that bad suitmakers make a shot at every once and a while. The dress shirts aren't pulled taught but rather reflect a pragmatic need for movement. They look like a business suit dress shirt should - comfortable but pressed, not excessively starched. The body of the suit is so god damn consistently perfect it's crazy. The drape of the pants is perfectly sharp without appearing voluminous given the presence of pleats. The cuffs on his pants are olds chool, but he's so damn sharp that it works. Even the damn handkerchief is clearly hand-folded and pressed.

There's stuff about his suiting that I wouldn't do personally, but you can't deny his (and his tailor's) skill.
>>
>>10914762
Not him but a suit isnt formal you fucking retard. If you wear a jacket and a matching pair of pants that doesnt make it formal.

What does make it formal is a tie, a pair of formal shoes (oxford) and simple, subtle shirt. Wearing a suit without a tie isnt formal. Wearing boots is not formal. Wearing a patterned shirt that has anything but a subtle windowpane or tiny checks isnt formal. And hardly any of the outfits in this thread are a) formal (see above) or b) suits (most of them are a pair of fucking trousers with a shirt or coach but no matching jacket, blue jacket and black pants arent a suit you mongoloid).

Thread already started out the wrong way. Its labeled formal/suit inspo and the opening post is neither a suit nor formal.

Double breasted and turtlenecks go together because the DB provides some visual interest and breaks up the solid planes of fabric - they typically have a higher closure than SB and that also helps the turtleneck not engulf the torso of the wearer.

One of my friends has begun wearing complete suits to school everyday (we're both seniors), not sure if it's cringy as fuck or okay.

its okay SOMETIMES

if you're wearing completely businesslike suits to school then you're either out of place or come from a rich family - if you're wearing fashion suits then it's okay

if you're seniors in high school then full suits are probably a bit much, sportcoats are probably the furthest you should go for days where there isn't a wedding, dance, or graduation
