Much thanks, gentlemen. It is a DS Dundee Ettrick Shooting Jacket -- need to borrow ArtofTime's rig. The Beretta's are not accessible atm.

The tie is a true chocolate silk twill - and it looks exactly like the closeup shot IRL. I wanted something with a bit of a shine, but not too shiny to (again) dress up a more relaxed fit. I wanted to keep it a basic because of the dizzy SC pattern and floral PS.

What would you have done instead of this tie if everything else in the fit was the same?

I distrust that WAYWRN is WYSIWYG when it comes to color/intensity accuracy and balance. So, I think it unwise to be specific about that. Digital photography and a myriad uncorrected monitors on the Internet make for quixotic criticism in this department if pursued zealously.

On the collar shape, my take is a bit different the perspective that you and most today have.

A turndown collar is a turndown collar...there really aren't meaningful differences in "formality" save, perhaps, that a BD collar is bit more informal because of the sporting connotations (less so for Americans where it has been worn since forever with jacket and tie.)

For example, if your premise is that the more cut away the collar, the more formal, you might reassess this belief when you consider a turndown collar in its application closest to formality, which is for black tie. For black tie, you want a bit less, not more, spread, lest your bow and your collar fight a duel to the death for ownership of the same real estate on your shirt.

For me, then, it's not some nuance of formality. The shape of your jacket suggests something Continental, so a plain point tennis collar seemed less apt than a spread or maybe something more sporty like a BD. Nothing more complicated than that.

You have until 12 midnight EST, I do believe.

Must be slap-bang in the middle of the MC demographic I guess; impressively good day of looks.

We are tweed nuts, obviously. I wait all year to wear tweed. Today was such a perfect day for it too. I have changed, but I am tempted to put it back on, build a fire and get drunk on Scotch while wearing it.

IMHO - i think the high level of success is partly because brown/oatmeal/wheat tweed (especially in a 3pc) is one of the best sartorial inventions evah!

A million different variables prevented me from wearing my tweed to work; but I'll see if I can find one for an evening fit...

tl;dr


kidding man - Thanks for the insight. I never thought of that logic in terms of collar shape. Its shit like this that makes me appreciate this thread. A well explained, alternate perspective to a long standing presumption. Thanks so much for the new information, and now I definitely have something to consider the next time I take it out.

Red letter day all around on WAYWRN. Whats next?

We are missing fits from a few key players here....Eden, UC, Nil.
Must say - fantastic turnout thus far. Parker, Spoo, TTO, Brenin. Whoa.

Why of course - didn't you see my "ass kicking" fit last week?

I didn't even see my wife this morning. Perhaps there were tweed vibes radiating throughout the universe.

Nice one, BB. IMO, this kind of smart, "professor-like" look suits you best. If I remember, you want to get into teaching - dressing the part works great for you!

TTO - somehow you were not in my Multi-Quote, but nice one again. The jacket doesn't appear as shapely as your other stuff, especially for a DB, but perhaps it's the heavy weight fabric.
post #26591 of 37075
The tweed looks stellar.

What's a good source for tweed pants/trousers?

No tweed today. Once again, please forgive the poor lighting and quality. Pants are a little wrinkled from a long drive from Boston to Connecticut. This is a 6x1 DB that I've been thinking of converting into a 6x2 after taking it in a little. I've lost a little weight, and it looks a tad boxy on my silhouette. Thoughts?
post #26594 of 37075
It also looks a bit short on you, and a bit dated. Rather than take the $ to reinvent it, I would consider allocating that to a new SC. ...and 1/2 hour left to get your tweed entries in!!

Shoes: Barker 'Nairn'

Outstanding. That PS and tie are really complementing each other!

I love the bowtie/jacket/shirt combo. Only thing that could have made it better is a KISS PS.

Wow. Bad. Ass. You'd make a perfect Superman villain, sir.

Context: a truly freezing cold frosty morning (it fell to under -7 celsius overnight at a weather monitoring station about 20 minutes away from me). Had some work to do at 11am, which felt shockingly early in light of the cold of the morning, but there you go.

RLPL suit and coat, Sartorial Executive bespoke shirt, Ede & Ravenscroft tie and gloves, RM Williams boots, M&S felt hat, Lester Bowden scarf.

I just love that tie. Adds just the right amount of color to the rest of the dreary tweed outfit.
