Like most things, it's a question of doing it right. The right jacket, on the right person. It works brilliantly with that jacket, on you.

That should be what a board like SF is all about!

So . . . you got 100% TC today...

Very cool. Especially the hair. I actually always wanted to grow my hair, but mine is too thin for it to look good.

A worthy choice. Looks good, and interesting too.

Thanks! I really enjoy wearing overcoats; it takes quite some willpower to resist adding more. I found two earlier this year that I liked a lot, but I just don't have any more room for clothes. I refuse to add more storage space; the space limit is a useful practical boost to resisting the urge to add more!

Hope everyone is enjoying New Year's Day, and not nursing too painful a hangover.

Cheers, Peace, and a Happy New Year to all.

Hi RLP, this is actually a thread for photos, not clothing lists. Kitonbrioni's lists throw people off, but his photos are linked in his sig.

The monkstraps make it particularly striking.

Thanks, man. I'm glad you like the monks. I actually can't stand wearing black shoes, so I ordered these monks thinking they would be a sporty compromise when black shoes are called for. I'm thrilled with how they turned out.

Well, I can't argue with that!

Thanks, Gnat. I do appreciate it. This is my first SP in single breasted. I like it.

thank you! just the type of review I was looking for; agree that the prices seem pretty reasonable.

I am very pleased with the overall quality and product. I would compare it, in terms of handwork and attention to detail etc., in line with the high end RTW makers that are admired here. That said, I think the price (I am talking full retail) is pretty reasonable when comparing it with these makers.

From what I can tell, the button holes are hand attached - in terms of the amount of overall handwork- I am not sure. I particularly like the collar, shoulders, and shape of the coat OTR, although, I have to say it is a more unique cut than I have encountered in the initial, unaltered product (there was much more shaping in the waist). I like that they leave plenty of seam allowance in the coat and pants to allow for alterations, although, in the coat they aren't as generous with the allowance in the lining.

I can only speak to my own experience, but the collar grips the neck nicely and the shoulders pitch forward slightly, which works for me and the way my arms hang. I dont think there is any actual padding in the shoulders, but the shoulder is not completely "soft" and the waterfall sleeves are very subtle (sorry -dont know the terminology). The armholes are nice and high and the sleeves are pretty slim, but the overall all feel of the jacket is great. There seems to be more "room" in the chest than I am used to relative to the shoulder width and waist. I believe the coat is also fully canvassed.

I would certainly recommend their product to anyone and The armoury was a fantastic help, which made me much more comfortable taking a chance. I am sure they would be happy to give you more information (and they were not pushy in any way), and they are certainly much more knowledgable about the overall product.

Hope that was somewhat helpful - Happy New Year!

My first contribution in earnest, NYE: A little too CBD, perhaps...but thats about all I own. And my better half....looking as such:

Happy New Year...pounded out a 5.5 mile run this morning in shorts in the balmy 51 degrees. Then we had to take the kids out, who've been inside since the snow storm: The only way to get two walkers to stand still for a photo! Not bad considering this was just a few days ago:

Well done! How about a close up of the shirt?
