To play it safe you should probably go with navy or charcoal. Still much better than the ubiquitous black anyway. And you can always get an interesting shade of navy or a nice herringbone in the charcoal. I have a camel hair overcoat from O'Connell's and find that it stands out even in London (England, not Ontario).
Any European (possibly UK) alternatives to Tiecrafters?
Does anyone have any pictures of these after some wear? Is it true that they mold to the body and become softer? And what about discolouration and other dry denim-like effects? Cheers.
Nice stuff. Most knit sportcoat I can find, though, have the currently fashionable proportions, i.e. far too short for my taste. Any suggestions on where to find a more traditional silhouette.
I'm warming to this concept, even though I'm usually hostile to hybrids. Suggestions? Here are a few photos for inspiration. Keep them coming, if you're so inclined. Any suggestions for good quality options would be most appreciated. Cheers.
Those peaks are obscene (seriously, there's no photo angle from which one should see a peak lapel protruding over the wearer's shoulder), and the slimness of the trousers borders on the comical. He looks like a vasciaiuolo* who suddenly came into a bit of money.* Terribly politically incorrect terms referring to the inhabitants of the vasci, a sort of traditional basement-level dwelling of Naples' urban underclass.
Navy blue solid reppe A reppe stripe of some kind Light navy blue knit Black knit or grenadine Blue with cream dots (knit or grenadine or woven) Green solid reppe or knit or grenadine Midnight blue solid (for evening wear -- could be satin) Light grey wool Small flower/geometric foulard print with blue or silver ground Ancient madder in any colour (That list is slightly wintery, but then many people don't wear ties as often in summer)
Cheers. It does seem undistinguishable from the selvedge fabric, but seing those machine-finished edges on the cuffs just feels weird.
I was in urgent need of a pair of jeans so I nipped into the Redchurch St A.P.C. store in London and bought a pair of black New Standards. I've now just realised that they're not selvedge. I don't care that much as I'm going to have them hemmed (how much will they shrink in length?), but still. Is this a new development?
