Stitchy, overall I feel like the look is a success. I, however, hate flaps with patch pockets and would recommend having them removed. That said, on a jacket as casual as that, I love patch pockets. The shoes are fine, but I'd prefer bluchers over balmorals. I reserve balmorals for suit wear only.

thank you, koy. the sleeves actually sit a little shorter, and tend to wrinkle a bit too, which brings them up. i think i just pulled down on them too hard for the pic, but they defo look a tad long in the pic, agreed.

I also might have goon with wool, because the taupe cotton (if that's what it actually is), combined with the pockets gives it a bit of a J. Peterman vibe, but Fuuma has convinced me that patch pockets can look good (his example was, if I'm remembering properly, an olive green Engineerd Garments coat). Something looks about sloppy about your break, too, and things look a little full in the upper thigh/seat. I think dark navy trousers, brown shoes, and a camel SC would be a great color combo, though. I even like your oxford.

thanks, synth. pants are LVC cotton chinos. the SC is a cotton/linen blend. wool pants might be better, but i never have done a cotton pants/SC combo and wanted to try it out. gray flanel was suggested, might be good for next time.

the break always looks off with these, cant get it to sit right, and the fullness you are noticing is my large thighs and ass. these pants are probably not the best cut for my large self, but i guess they get the job done for the few times i go this casual.

glad you like the shoes, i love these babies.

thanks a ton for the feedback, much appreciated. smile.gif

I think cotton trousers (including jeans smile.gif) work better than wool for this jacket.

One of Stitches' best casual attempts, I think.

thanks, skipper. im undecided on the flaps. for now, i like them in that its different than anything else i have. there are also a bazillion pockets on this SC, i dont why that makes me happy, but it does. and PRL nwt for $36 was hard to turn down for a dude looking for his first khaki casual SC.

Where your polls at KOY?

post #85407 of 115802

Guessing you mean poles?

If I take them with me I rarely (if ever) use them, so usually I just skip them

 

and stitches if you visit sometime, be sure to visit Norway to see the rivers, some of them are simply stunning (and there's no problem bathing in them if you're going there spring/summer) fing02[1].gif

Be sure to PM though if you actually may visit

Decent enough, although the shoes border the formal a little too much for me (more linen suit shoes). Try a pair of terracotta/clay trousers instead of the blue - it would work with the shoes, provide contrast with the shirt and a subtler contrast with the jacket.
