Nice set of pics, especially the one with your dog. The suit looks black on my monitor, but I liked the combo nonetheless even before you mentioned it's charcoal.

Bunch of nice entries today! Fits are looking great.

aeglus - you might take the show - VERY nice...the tie (at least to me) is unexpectedly perfect here. It would be a task to see that tie on a display table and have it harken up the thought of this suit but, damn, it is a money collaboration.

Orgetorix - I agree with someone else's comment on the tie - a better match would take this up a few notches. In full candor, I sported much the same look earlier this week and was wholely dissatisfied with the tie... my second thoughts on the tie are now confirmed.

Spoo - love the new suit and fit.

Acridsheep - well done except pant length, but next time, get a bigger dog.

MBreinin - lovely. You're making me second guess my aversion to DB....very well done.

Clarinetplayer - jacket looks a little too large IMHO. Also, drop the clarinet and pick up the jazz flute.

PandArts - I would suggst skipping the cardigan next time...looks like a deep dive but short in the waist....could just be the pics though.

Still, I am going to say that I really like this suit and the entire fit. I can't figure out why you are debuting what appears to be a heavy flannel suit in the second half of March, but I know how it goes with acquisitions.!


I was of course going to take out the TF again, but I feel like I wear that every challenge. I wanted to try another one. I feel this is very me - the fit, purple friggin pinstripes! A wild-ish PS, charvet tie, and my favorite Gazianos. It is not too hot for flannel here today so far, but yeah, just got it back from the tailor and wanted to get it in before the season ended.

Do you get John Slattery comparisons often?

Also, for what it's worth, you are usually stronger at suiting

Thanks for the feedback. It's actually a waistcoat in navy pinstripe wool but sort of hard to see in the photos

Here's a slightly better shot of it:

Meant to add this to my earlier post - I like this a lot. I wish I had the sack to try shit like this out, but alas, I do not.

Ha, ha! Bach was the greatest "jazzer" of all time! Regarding the coat fit...running, TRX, and kettlebell have created a clothing dilemma. Everything is too large.

I think Mike's comment was directed at Holdfast, but I'll take what you say under consideration.

Nice! Clothing dilemmas in that direction are usually a welcomed "problem." Congrats!

Thank you, sir.

It was.

From what I understand from my tailor, the shoulder construction on my suit is fairly conventional British style - at least, as offered by Henry Poole where his father trained and from he learned his craft. Accordingly, you may salute!

Same suit, different camera, and poorer photographer. More pics will come next week when the suits is trotted out again. Hopefully, I will have mastered this damn camera by then.

Yes, occasionally. Mike has urged me to go full-Slattery on the style front and abandon the fashion-forward Ralph Lauren Black Labels that I wear for the most part. It's in the cards; all suits from here-on-out will be Field suits, but the finances preclude more than a couple a year.

Re-post sorry, first got buried i was hoping for some feedback, thanks guys.

This one's for you Mr. Spoo.

But first a few disclaimers.

1. I'm a rookie so my "A" game may be more of a "C-" game, please don't hold it against me. It's my first MTM so I think it fits best of all the suits I have.

2. Manton, before you even start, I do not own any decent shoes with laces. I blew my load on these Zegna Couture loafers before I knew enough about shoes. Untill I can afford another pair this is what I am working with.

3. Whnay, I'm not a big photo guy my only camera that can upload is my phone. Too add, my wife can only handle taking so many photos that all look the same to her, she is still getting used to my affair with SF. Please therefore forgive the photo quality.

4. For some reason, maybe the way I'm standing the jacket sleeves seem to look a tad longer than they are IRL.

5. I am including some fit pics and some close ups that better represent the true colors of the items. Per the advise of a certain member here I did not wear a PS, but I put some pics of it in as I would like to know if you guys think it's a good look with this outfit.

So, Mr. Spoo if you think these are up to snuff please include them in the challenge, if not hopefully it will be worth the post for the feedback. Cheers.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)









yes spoo i saw yours thanks

^ Suit looks good, stitches. Your disclaimers de-ball most of my criticisms. I wouldn't use that PS with this suit, so good call on not including it. For me, the patterned tie and chalk stripe suit call for a simple PS (white linen or something).

Thank you

Truth be told, even I can recognise the differences between the ensemble you like and the one you did not - the underlying factor being that one was thrown together and the other was more considered. The fact that the older one was professionally captured does help, also

I really miss those grey striped slacks

Despite the celebrity DTO nature of the fit, it actually fits my style to a tee and is probably the best example of my warm-weather fits.


once again, freddy would be proud

AWESOME, especially the tie-shoe combo
