I miss when this thread had more scathing critiques by Foo and others quite a few months ago. (I haven't been lurking in a while). What happened to the general consensus that sport coats should be darker than trousers? Caustic, it seems all of your coats from the last few dozen pages that I viewed are all lighter than your trousers which makes the outfit look discordant to my eye. Also the color combinations are all over the place.
To answer your question self-striped suiting is generally looked down upon on these forums which is what you have. The lapels are way too slim. As a general rule they should land about halfway of the distance to the shoulder. In that particular picture the jacket is too pinched in the torso which is causing an "X" creasing effect at the buttoning point which indicates poor fit. Lastly the jacket is too short and it looks like it was made for a child. It should cover the...
I kind of like those. There's something of a dissonance though since the material seems like it's more appropriate for spring/summer footwear and not for boots. I wonder how they'd handle the weather.

I kid you not! At times I feel like I have exited the matrix and others are still stuck in it. When I start to feel guilty about how much I spend on clothes I can't help but think of the dire alternatives.
The real question is why BB produces so many coats without sidevents. Hopsack single vent style is whack.
So I picked up this Brooks Brothers brown herringbone tweed from ebay. It's due to arrive later this week. I'm not sure if I overpaid for it but I liked the look and hope it fits well. It's from 2007 but supposedly unworn. It has pretty much everything I was looking for but it's single vented when I would have preferred side vents. I'll settle for this one as it's difficult to find 100% exactly what I want. I'm hoping the ripple on the left shoulder as seen in the rear...
