+1 - Shape of the pocket bothers me, but I like the color for a summer casual SC. Any detail shots of the fabric?

Pocket is squarish, though not as exaggeratedly so as it looks here. A rather large square, folded rectangularly and filling out most of the pocket is adding to the effect. On the season, point taken. FWIW, however, High 90°

Not handy, but it's a substantial 100% Sea Island Oxford cloth.

Nice, I like the tie, but as I scrolled down I was expecting Dr Marten boots.

As a casual summer jacket pink is fine - I wear a pink linen one in high summer (still only spring here). I see what you mean about the PS exaggerating the pocket shape.

Apologies to those who don't like brown for business (I think it's CBD enough for the thread though)...

Thanks MoK. I'd call it red more than pink; think the swatch said "coral" iirc.

Dunno what Manton will say, but I think this looks great. Is this one of your pre-weight-loss suits, though? It seems to hang off you.

Yesterday. BB 3 piece navy sack. BB OCBD. BB Repp tie.

Colors are awful in the shot due to the poor lighting in our decaying courthouse.

I've seen some shitty courthouses but that one takes the cake. That one makes the Daley Center look like Buckingham Palace. Nice fit though.

Definitely state court. FWIW, I've seen worse.

The most unfortunate thing about the room's disrepair is that the building looks like this on the outside:

I don't know whether he'll say anything, but I know he's not keen on the shirt I suspect the Holland & Sherry fabric will meet with his approval, but He'll no doubt agree that the jacket fit could be better. Yes it was pre weightloss, but the main issue is it was my first attempt at MTM and I specified too much shoulder extension in an attempt to try and hide my shoulder...

If i was being picky I could say I don't like the knot on the tuesday fit, but basically these are all nice solid fits that avoid the dull.

The jacket is crying out to be worn open over the waistcoat Nice suit.
