They seem to be pretty trendy these days. Anything wrong with black chinos and a white shirt? Black chinos and a black shirt? That seems to be about all you can do with black chinos. So I guess the reall question is how do we feel about black/black and black/white looks? And for the sake of argument, let's posit that our skin tone works with black and that we're in "hip" urban environments where black is the rule and not the exception. Let's also posit (not that we...

I think a tie with more texture, or a subtle pattern would work better...the pocket square seems to bright to me, maybe better for a sports coat/ more casual fit, though I applaud your industrious use of spare cloth...mine usually goes the same way...or gets turned into bow-ties! -TTO I too very much like the shirt/tie/suit...

It would take me days to figure out how to set that sort of thing up though. Nothing personal, but you guys aren't worth that kind of time and energy!

The idea is to have something like a dinner jacket save for the fact that it has no silk facing or piping on the trousers. It's 90% mohair, 10% wool, so it has sheen. But it's a cool sheen - not mobster-ish (I hope). Will thinks its the most gorgeous...
By the way, it's perhaps worth noting that a friend of mine from London who used to be a senior editor at The Economist was recently on a panel with me and afterwards brought up my suit. "I must say that you are looking extremely British - far more British than most all the Brits I've ever known!" I took it as a very positive comment.

Mike I like the look too, but I'm not a hater re drape cuts, Rubinacci, etc. It's just that the only really good bespoke tailor in DC is William Field and this is what he does. I...

I like the shoulders, a strong look but it's a good one too! Everyone else good show, well done for participating! -TTO Quote: Originally Posted by tshaw Just Incredible, gentlemen - very handsome and all winners IMHO- Congrats!! J....
Quote: Originally Posted by Holdfast Honestly, I think this is excellent, and deserves praise.. It clearly fits nicely and the colours are strong but co-ordinated well. I know a lot of people dislike built-up shoulders, but I just can't see why they get disliked so much when there are such good examples of it, like this. A good military-inspired suit; nice one!

Well, let's cancel this given lack of interest. I'll hit my office happy hour tonight instead ... in my Will Field!
