Photo of Kirk(from the Wall Street Journal) in front of his NYC store. Come on out and join us on the 24th for a meetup.
I like that tie very much and would wear it with a solid navy jacket and tobacco colored suede captoes. (it might look nice with a Donegal). Windowpane calls for a more subtle formal tie pattern IMO. Also windowpane is a geometric pattern and I don't care for pairing a grid design with a free-flowing swirling paisley madder when better options exist.
I've never found this shoulder style combined with the fuller cut to be very flattering. Unless you have very broad shoulders and a trim waist it is easy to look pear shaped. Dirnelli's coat also has the 90's-early 2000's Arnys style generously full cut sleeves which, to me gives it a dated look.Overall, I think there are much better options for men who are in decent shape. If you don't need a lot of extra room why add it?
Seeing it by itself, that shade of green seems far more appropriate for a Spring outfit than a tweed which I think of as being F/W. That puts it in a seasonal No Mans Land. Unless, of course, you can show a shirt and jacket combo that is enhanced by that shade of green. It might exist but I would think that it would be hard to find. My guess is that a deeper or more mossy shade of green would be more versatile and look more seasonally correct with most tweeds or corduroy...
Great details on that Garment Dyed bomber. So, on trend too.
Thanks @razl !
Kirk, Derrick and a fan outside of their NYC location.
And here are a few accessory shots. Note their signature rounded collar.
Here are detail shots of some of their trousers. Note the higher rise and side tabs in Kirk's photo (above) showing the house fit. I had mine made with a single pleat.
Time for a Styleforum Meetup! As always everyone is invited. New members and their guests are always welcome. As a special guest we will have Kirk Miller. I met Kirk Miller of Millar's Oath in NYC last Fall at the Styelforum sponsored Proper Kit Trunk Show. Kirk is the brother of Derrick, and they used to run the shoe brand Barker Black together until Kirk launched this family-branded tailor in lower Manhattan. Kirk made some trousers for me and is visiting San...
