Thanks! Hadn't thought of those colors, will try some on upcoming shirt hunting trip.As for the belstaff jacket, I don't think it is one of the classic lines like the trialmaster but I'll check the label. I think it was new for spring to follow the tan-jacket trend
yep, i was surprised to see that label there, didn't know they carried it. actually, bloomingdales turned out to be one of the unexpected highlights of the trip; 30% off any purchase in the store the first day, and when i went back to take another look at stuff, LBM jackets were on racks marked 40% off, so couldn't pass this one up.now if i could just find a shirt that really goes well with the jacket but isn't boring (i.e. plain light blue doesn't seem enough) so i can...
belstaff jacket from new bergdorf purchases, and managed to wear the light blue sportcoat from Al Bazar once more before storage. hanging out with a good friend in NYC.
had to break out the new zegna trench for a rainy night out
finally, got pix up-- recent purchases: new trousers and ties Uploaded with ImageShack.us from the awesome Bloomingdales sale, zegna blue trench and lubiam LBM 1911 summer sportcoat Uploaded with ImageShack.us and....Bontonis from Bergdorf. was cool to meet the company guys from Bontoni, learned about the construction and leather processing/ staining to get the coloring effect. a new prized piece in the collection! Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Highly...
shiny tie doesn't seem to hold up with the rest of the excellent and well-cut combo; would definitely swap it out for a textured, or better yet a knit tie, solid wool, or cashmere tie.
great posts recently-- in particular, that Sartoria Partenopea suit is killer-- wow, really great piece.
nice one! I'll be contributing to this thread myself in a few days, will finally get to see the new kitons and a patterned isaia MTM from my last nyc visit!
my two cents on the subject......i have avoided DB for the past several years, considering them outdated. however, now that DB style seems to be back in, I tried on a trimmer cut jacket at a store I definitely added to my favorites of all time, Al Bazar. This is the first DB cut/ fit I've ever really liked, even the softer but possibly sloped shoulders seemed really good to me-- I would totally order a grey flannel suit from them in this cut if i could, and probably...
