With the pound crashing I figure it's time to try some British tailors. I'm deciding between Steed MTM and Whitcomb and Shaftesbury classic. Thoughts? My understanding is W&S will be cut by SR cutters while Steed MTM is just measured, so I'm tempted to try W&S for 1.4k vs Steed's £900.
Clags how do you even wear coat and tie? Yeah sand would work but it's basically offwhite still yes I think I might get them just to wear with those colors. Thoughts?
Also: America is hot. But at least I can wear these sunglasses where nobody can recognise me. Unfortunately you will all see how short the jacket was ordered it off jcrew but cbf to return it so here we are.

Would prefer either darker or lighter trousers. Perhaps I'm not a fan of that kind of jeans, but I think either unwashed denim or more faded or cream linen pents would do better.   The formality dissonance doesn't work for me either. Tie is too formal, as is shirt. I think a white or white linen shirt, or a blue oxford would be good, but lavender (and other pastels) are almost entirely business in a dress shirt context (polos being different but I hate polos), speaking...
I was and am going to make a 2 piece out of this with plans of wearing the jacket as a blazer.   http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/916/directors-cut/navy-stripe-hopsack   I'm gonna take Claghorn's posts as a go-ahead. ty
