Nice. I think the purple gingham is a nice touch. Your coat looks a little short to me though. It'd be interesting to see a full shot.

Hmm, blazer looks too much like a orphaned suit jacket. Black buttons and jetted pockets? Also, seems way too short in length. Purple shirt is definitely too flash but a good effort.

This is my version of this...

It's a RTW shirt by Mastai Ferretti that I bought in Siena 8 or 9 years ago. I have tons of "better" shirts but this is one of my very favorite one. I also used the spread BD collar pattern to have Carl make new BD shirts for me - that didn't go to well with the shirt pr0n thread crowd

It's RTW by Borrelli. To be quite frank, I'm VERY surprised by all the praises for this coat here. It's pretty basic - and you guys can't even see the suede elbow patches !

I don't mind the shirt, but the jacket does look a little short.

Needs a PS - particularly with quite limited shirt space.

Non CBD, but that's a pretty good blazer combination.

What I had before getting tempted during my fitting


Picked up new SC (2nd version of my 1B SB P Johnson in navy Loro Piana "The Wave" cloth & tie (black/navy 2 tone silk knit from Drakes

How pale a suit can you go for before it's non-CBD? Does CDB have to be dark suits?

Anyway, no meetings, the forecast was for the early morning mist to burn off to reveal a bright spring day (it did eventually...):







Tie is an old Burberry 80/20 Cashmere/Silk blend (has a tad more 'soft' texture than picture suggests).

Shoe colour is 'Anthracite' - mid/dark grey with a hint of brown (probably look slightly greyer in real life). Can grey shoes ever be CBD?

CBD (classic Banker's dress)?
