Lovely bright Spring day today:

LOL! No not all the time as they can be quite pricey here. My gf's dad gave me a couple of packs when we were over for Sunday dinner. I did, however, used to smoke them more frequently back in the 90's when I travelled more to England. Oh, not French just a plain ole midwesternerer

Wow, fantastic color combination here, especially the light grey flannels book-ended with the brown jacket and similar brown suede shoes. I'm impressed by the fact that all of these are classic pieces yet the way you put it together looks "fresh". Very inspiring!

Nice suit and tie. Can you to try a white linen pocket square? I think you have plenty of detail and pattern going on. Probably a bit too much. The white pocket square should dial down the complexity just enough to make it look its best.

I like everything but this tie. I don't think the fuscia in the tie sits well with the pants.

That's an interesting and accurate point. The tie was an afterthought; I was initially going to go open collar, then at the last moment changed my mind and put on a tie in case it gets a bit breezy/cooler later in the day so grabbed the first tie that appeared to co-ordinate. It doesn't work as well as I thought it would. If I was to take a mulligan, I would probably keep the tie though, and switch the trousers for something non-red instead.

^I am interested as well - because in the static photo it actually looks slightly long to me (and I have the same preference for a longer coat and wore a similarly long suit coat today), but IRL when moving etc. it feels perfect to me. The way my hips flare out I feel the slightly longer coat helps to conceal this.

+1 - tie and shirt combo seem out of place with this getup. Maybe a solid oxford blue shirt (sans tie) or with a more subdued tie.

Suit - RLBL charcoal sharkskin
Shirt - Brooks Bros.

Yeah I agree about the square, though the one I'm wearing is not as blue as it appears in the detail shot. As for the tie I wanted subtle transitions as opposed to starker contrasts, in which case I would have gone with a deeper navy or burgundy.

Yeah. I was thinking solid burgundy. Just a nit though. You still look sharp!

Oh yeah! I love my burgundy tie with this suit but I just wore that combo not too long ago and I didn't want to repeat myself too soon

Cheers!

I really like the complex jacket pattern combined with the solid grey pants, simple blue shirt and navy tie with white dots. This is the way to wear a POW. I would suggest trying a white linen pocket square (with loose points and a puff) for the best effect. The solid pink silk has too much sheen. You would benefit from the texture and contrast of the white linen.

Very nice jacket!
