The Mango's going abroad


#1

For a wedding, so naturally I bought a suit from TK Max. It cost a ton ( 100quid to you non cockneys)! Its made from wool and looks good but is made very poorly and a bit tight, I cant take it back and I just found out its going to be 30c+ at the wedding. Do I wear the suit and look good but suffer? Or do I go looking scruffy and work the whole white cotton bohemian look maaaan thus making the suit a waste?


What's on your coathangers? (crucial important audit)

I went full suit for a wedding in Leipzig when it was 35 degrees.

It was unpleasant.


#3

I have a friend who wore a wool three-piece to a pal’s wedding on a 30 degree day, he didn’t enjoy the experience.


#4

I wouldn’t say we’re friends, more casual internet acquaintances.


#5

Damn it what am I going to do with this suit!


#6

Here’s me in Madeira wearing a navy wool suit in 30 degree heat. I looked good but I was dying inside:


#7

Cut off the sleeves and the bottom of the trousers and wear it as a wool-suit-shorts-and-vest type of deal


#8

Wear the suit, but stay at home and link up with the wedding via skype.


#9

take it back and go man from del monte style


#10

The man from del monte is my nemesis he’s all but ruined the mango trade, never mention his name again. Also I cant take it back!


#11

cut the bottoms off the legs and arms and make shorts?


#12

Should I buy some chinos, they don’t strike me as being very light though?


#13

And its further expense


#14

That is cut very nicely across your shoulders :ok_hand:


#15

Thanks man! Off the peg that too.


#16

Have we done a suits thread in recent memory?


#17

Not on #newdis I don’t think.
