Agreed. Well done. I really like the orange tie so please share details Sheepy if you feel so inclined.
Thanks guys. Tie is a "grenafaux" from Tiebar. I wish I made up even one part of that last sentence.
I work for an advertising agency. My coworkers already think I'm a bit precious for even wearing a tie - this despite the fact that I have a legendary predilection for lopping off the limbs of those whose comments fall more than one standard deviation away from either "give me your seed" or "may I park your car, sir?"
Imagine the grief I would get if they knew I spent more on a tie than they did on their weekly coffee allowance.
Loving the top half. Not sure I'm overly keen on the pants, but I'm not sure why. Is it possible that there is not enough pattern up top to balance the seriously FU pants? Either way that SC is nice.
And is that a piece of burlap in your pocket?

NYR, the jacket is great and so are the pants, but not together. The colors seem off. Could be the lighting, of course. Do you have a dark brown or dark green SC?

But in all seriousness, really like this, NYR. You're an inspiration, and I don't just mean to your students.

Who takes your photos by the way? A student? (I'm assuming you're a teacher, correct me if I'm wrong.).

LOL, not burlap, or a sock, but homemade square. My dad was tossing a 46R PRL Tweed coat, I took it and cut a square or two for me and a scarf length for my lil girl. I agree after seeing the photos that the pants don't quite work, don't have a solid dark brown or green for em, guess they'll stay with a navy blazer...
As far as the photographer, I'm lucky enough to have a cool ass wife who works with me (its how we met) and she does the pics with my iPhone.
We did want to try wider lapels on this coat (these are approaching 4") and I think with the particular details here it works...thanks for the comments guys.
Tie is BB wool, from the sale last winter on Madison.
