Details:

Denim close-up (they're more darning thread than denim at this point):

Tan, navy, white, tan, blue, grey/green. You can probably tell it's ever-so-slightly tight with a knit underneath, but it definitely makes it more wearable. I love this jacket.
I think I've been browsing CM too much. I looked in the mirror and for a second wished I had a soft-shouldered cashmere SC from a mysterious neapolitan tailor.

1. great fit.

2. embrace the CM feelings you are experiencing.

Thread is on firee right now.

 

I know Synth's varsity has been discussed tons before...but that doesn't mean I still don't really want it.

Thanks so much everyone! Building slowly but (hopefully) will figure it all out.  Focusing on trying to learn fit/colors/materials/etc.  The basics, I guess.

It's a Uniqlo heattech SS crew.  I usually wear a M in shirts, but got that in a L and it creates a nice draping effect.  It feels perfect to wear with a jacket, but I would feel a little weird wearing it all by itself probably.

The varsity looks great on you. fistbump.gif

Just (per your comment in another thread) don't give up on the things you really want -- you'd be surprised at the deals you'll find just refreshing b&s every day. (Or often, I suppose, for the less obsessed).

snow, are those pants the ones that you had your tailor make for you?

User Ivwri and I are working on the j pant cut and those are the ones most people were asking about.
This pair I had a tailor create a simple pair of trousers with an elongated rise and a taper. I gave him some measurements and some specific details like the small pleat and single back pocket. He was pushing me to add the mop buttons instead of black which I think is pretty cool now. (Lonely star in a dark sky, sup noob!!)

They look really good! You've inspired me to try this myself. Did you source your own fabric? I've been searching for a good pair of trousers with a loose top block/tapered hem for a long time to no avail...

Menswear shots from the wedding


Warning: NEITHER STREETWEAR NOR DENIM (Click to show)

 

 

 

Everyone wore their own clothes for the wedding but the ties were all purchased from Kent Wang and gifted to the guys.

 

From left to right: Our officiant is standing farthest left and wearing a burgundy grenadine tie. My best man wore an Epaulet suit in “cadet grey” (now discontinued), a glen plaid tie, and Allen Edmonds shoes. I wore a special-order Epaulet (Southwick for Michael Kuhle) suit in charcoal grey flannel, a shepard’s check tie, and Bexley shoes. My wife’s best man wore a RLBL suit and a houndstooth tie.

 

For anyone considering a MTO suit from Epaulet, I would definitely recommend it. I was really happy with how the charcoal flannel DB came out. Mike had a few such fabrics and I told him to just pick whichever he thought would be best. The one I ended up with has a really fantastic hand and drape, plus while it is properly thick as a flannel fabric should be, it's not so thick that I can't wear it most of the year in LA. The ordering process was really easy, and I liked being able to add features like the ticket pocket and smoke mother of pearl buttons (the latter at Mike's suggestion).

 

It was cool too that my best man wore his Epaulet suit. I've got the same one -- this is the old "Desmond" model that was their first foray into sport coats. It's fused, so it's not at the level of quality of the current offerings, but it's a really cool shape that I've always liked -- slightly more British in a couple of ways.
