Awesome Nore!

I have to make a general comment that I am beginning to dislike unbuttoned collar buttons with a tie, especially with a suit. Regardless of my personal bias, I don't see how this look could possibly be CBD.

You mean the points of BDs? It's a Naples thing. I saw it everywhere there. I also saw a lot of buttoned BDs. Frankly, I was surprised at the number of BD collars in Naples.

Manton - other than your A&S Shetland tweed, do you have any other 'FU' type sportcoats? And would you ever wear the Shetland to work?

I realize you are really getting into PJ MTO, but I think some of your 'older' bespoke coats and suits look much better on you.

Just sayin'.

Would this suit be considered self-striped?

My collar points are buttoned, but I like that look on a collar with long points. Polo cuts them too short for it.

It's a silly look and trend here. That too shall pass

Back to CBD today. I apologize about the crappy quality of the pictures. It seems like the blackberry camera has trouble getting in focus on fuzzy flannel...

Nice. You always have such wonderful patterns and fabrics, which leaves me wanting to see what the complete package looks like. Any chance of you getting some full length shots from time to time?

Knowing his reticence about grey odd jackets, I'm especially interested to hear Manton's take on this, if he'll be so kind. Also, strict CBD rules aside, do you feel this works generally? (It would definitely go over fine at my workplace). Please ignore sleeve wrinkles; left is twisted and both arms are bent. Never realized posing for fit pics could be so awkward .

PG, PJ just ain't working for you. Will this be a backlash?

gdl - you look fantastic. Are those St. Crispins?
post #1260 of 7027
gdl, Looks nice. Especially like the tie and suit fabrics.
