New York Big Blue on top of New England, just like last night! (Schott Down Vest, Jcrew Sweater, Ercoles Shirt, Epaulet Chinos and Belt, Alden Cigar LWB) Warning: Spoiler!(Click to show)
i am utterly bored with my outfits
new ike behar shirt.. thought it was going to be a wider spread, not a forward point collar
and i think the collar points don't like to stay down .. will try wearing them with the magnetic collar stays next time
so i am not sure what to get as my next suit
pinstripe? another glen plaid? some other pattern? keeping my options open but leaning toward a pinstripe
You may be bored with your outfits, but you definitely look very good in them these days, which is a far cry from a couple of months ago.
Why not try a Prince of Wales rather than Glen Urqhart plaid with a medium green or deep red overcheck. Then get an optional waistcoat in the green or red of the overcheck, in a fabric that has a different texture.
Somehow, I missed this a few days ago. In my opinion, this is perfection. I love the vertical stripes on the bow tie. The pocket square adds some punch to the overall look. The blue shirt with contrasting collar and double cuff is the perfect match for the camel wool coat--an item sadly absent from my wardrobe. Such good taste. And, I wouldn't mind having a "cuppa".
Really? I have friends who work up at saks and bergdorf who routinely get suits made for about a grand (they paid separately for the materials)
maybe they have special magic hookups
And you're sure that those suits are fully bespoke and not just made to measure? There are plenty of 'custom' tailoring places (such as Michael Andrews "Bespoke") that are really just MTM. Although... I believe Mr Ned does do full bespoke for under $1000.
SOS, I like that. The skirt is flaring out, though...not sure if the hips should be let out or the waist. What do you think?
Thanks for the feedback B. This is the second pattern he's cut. The skirt has to be taken in, not the waist out. There's a few tweaks to this jacket to be done yet, but he's on holidays for the next month, so I'm just wearing it for the time being. Unfortunately some of it comes from having been an athlete for 18 years...
