Thx, RJE. It is very soft and very warm. It's only quarter lined.

It fits you well, and a chunky tie is great with it. Not so keen on the contrast stitching in the lapel buttonhole, or is it just the flash? In terms of balance, you could probably get away with ½ inch off the length if you really wanted (not saying you should, but that technically it isn't difficult and shouldn't affect the shape too much, just a bit more open perhaps(?)).

No flash, that is contrast stitching. I have a deep green silk knit, but I can't warm up to it. I also have a red silk knit, ditto. I am a blue guy, can't help it.

This jacket is 31 inches BOC. I measured it this morning. I am usually happiest around 30 inches, but my SP is 30.75. I am not tall, only 5-9, so when a jacket is too long I fear the leg chop effect. However, I am not going to mess with this. It is a rarely worn piece and winter will be gone here soon....

I think it's too much, Spoozy. Shirt and jacket would've been too much. You add the tie, the PS, the vest and the scarft and it just feels like too much. In other observations - the coat fits you nicely in the waist, but the shoulders seem to be a bit much. Do you live in Mannheim or Frankfurt?

http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...ostcount=30822 The close-up shot: solid-ish (non-brown) tie with that much else going on - you could always try to make the tie textured/chunky I suppose, if you wanted more variety.

Unforunately my business tends to be a little more conservative, and I don't often go much bolder because of this. That being said, I have a few things in the works I should receive over the next 6 months - year that will round out some bolder outfits.

I'm wondering if it's that his shoulders are sloped a bit. This is what my jackets do on my right side on account of my slightly lower right shoulder.

I love charity shops! Shirt - brand new Charles Tyrwhitt, still in plastic wrapper - 7 pounds. Belt RL Polo, bought in Singapore 2 for 1 so guess it was about 25 pounds (+/-). Trousers are Brooks Brothers linen/cotton mix, 10pounds from the same charity shop as above, way too big, waist reduced and legs slimmed which was about 200 HKD. Shoes are some sort of Loake. Picked them up for about 12 quid in a Charity shop when I was at university in the North of England 10 years ago. Still holding up strong, god know how old they were before I got them, (sorry for the rather crap photos).

It's an unlined cashmere DB with Loro Piana ZENIT Cashmere.

Off-topic, perhaps, but that's a really nice tie.

Your first combination – the colours and patterns of the shirt/suit/tie/pocket square - was nice. You’ve worn this suit for your two posts in WAYWRN. Do you have another suit – what colour/pattern? As suggested, the shoes may be worth reconsidering (although I know people who have worn Lloyd's for many years - a bit stiff, but very decent, I think they say. Perhaps as with Church's, not quite as bad as some say).
Thanks. I posted two times with pictures in this thread. In each post a different suit. First combination was blue with blue and too big: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...12#post4024912 The second combination was a dark gray suit with a blue/red/white shirt / tie combination: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...02#post4032402 Both suits are striped very light. One is dark blue, the other one dark gray. I also have a plain black suit. Which unfortunately is too big now, too. And it's black - so I can't really wear it to work. Maybe just the trousers or jacket, but I guess not together. I bought it but luckily never got the chance to wear it (luckily no funeral since I bought the suit). I will try to alter the shirt a little in the sleeve's length. Maybe a button narrower would help a little. The trousers got altered before. You really think it needs to be shorter than that? Shoes: Well... I will try to get a nice pair of 'Van Bommel's' when I visit soer the next days. If they fit nicely, of course. I have to try because I need some inlets in my shoes... Waist: It's hard to narrow it more than this because my belly wants to breath a little. But maybe it is possible. Today no suit; I'm having a normal office day. We're allowed to wear what we like in the office - no dress code at all. (And.. what is it about this Wooster?)

I knew it was a Garrison! Looks good. My suit was an eBay find that needed some major surgery: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=213453
