It's the clothes, Ed, which maketh the man jolly beyond his station.

VGent, that looks great! I'm not feeling the hat, but everything else is spot on. the blazer esp fits you phenomenally well.

Very nice. I don't get those people who are violently against brass buttons...
post #20 of 33
I think the brass button thing has been hashed out elsewhere, but I'll just say that when I had my jacket made, I thought that brass was associated with old men going through the motions. Lately, however, I've seen that they're much sharper than horn or mop. I may have mine switched out eventually.

A minor note: The tie bar seems to be throwing your tie of center. Are you clipping it to the shirt placket?

I am. Probably more a function, though, of being in a bit of a rush to get the photos taken and out the door this morning.

I wore my Broadstreets today too.

Great jacket. Love the shirt and tie as well.

Vintage Gent, please do not, repeat NOT, post any more pictures of Chan jackets like that! It's just going to make the wait for us established Chanfans to get our garments longer!

Seriously, looks good.

Much to my surprise, I got my Chan "fall-winter-early spring" jacket, a Shetland tweed, on Monday, a month before Patrick had promised it to me. It's a great fit, but I have been waiting impatiently for the weather to cool down sufficiently for me to wear it.

Jan, perhaps my Chan jacket will be waiting for me when I return from a week in Oklahoma, since we ordered the same day. Now I'm excited!! VG, you look very sharp! Even though I prefer smoked MOP blazer buttons, the shine on your brass buttons looks somewhat muted. I like your blazer.

blazer looks great and I do very much like the shirt-tie pairing. Not crazy about tie clips, but that's my thing, and the pocket silk seems to be asking for trouble. My preference is to peacock with only one piece, but again, that's my thing. Most importantly, it looks like Chan has made you one happy fellow, and that's priceless! Enjoy in good health!

Aw shucks, Jan. Coming from a fellow Chaniac, that's high praise indeed. I'm fortunate, after three visits, to have the pattern down to my satisfaction, so I've been ordering via e-mail and fabric samples, which brings the wait down to 4-6 weeks.
