I have always admired guys who can wear DB suits. Since I am 5'6", I have always shied away from DBs thinking that they can only be worn successfully by taller men. But since the Duke and Fred Astaire were about my height and were fans of the DB suit, I'm starting to change my opinion.
Looking to pic up one of these for the fall. I have the Bedale, which I like very much, and wanted to get another Barbour for variety. Anyone own either one of these and could speak about their fit and comfort? Thanks. The International Jacket (Like the Belstaff Trailmaster): The Cowen Commando: I'm partial to the International. Your thoughts?
GQ has gone down the sartorial toilet. Flush!

My next EG MTO will most likely be one or two of the following: Holborn (2 eyelet derby) in tobacco suede on 82 last Bamford (wholecut loafer) without medallion in chesnut on 101 last Ladbroke (oxford) in burgundy on 82 last Westminster (double buckle monk), in chesnut or burgundy on 82 last
I stuff a small amount of tissue to keep mine from falling.
Given your size, I'd go for a 6 button double breasted with a ticket pocket, side vents, and single reverse pleat trousers with braces. Go for a more military silhouette, a la Dege or Huntsman, with a suppressed waist and set shoulders. If this is going to be a special occasion suit, then you might opt for a material like sharkskin in navy or charcoal that has a little sheen and pizaz.
I use Field here in DC. Highly recommended.

The London Lounge's home page has a photo of Gary Cooper wearing a Macclesfield tie: BTW, I've been looking for one but with no luck. Where is a good source for Macclesfield ties, especially the black n white kind?
