Also, due to weird lighting the true blueness of the suit didn't come out in the full body shot. The closeup is more true to color.

and...

I think they should be a lot more worried about being str8 to be honest. LOL shog[1].gif

What do str8's know about anything anyway....

Victor, absolutely fantastic! Cufflinks? St Dupont? Dunhill?

I'm gonna cross post this since I stumble upon this French country-style tweed suit.

Aside from looking dated, I really like the texture of the suit for its interesting fabric and its uniqueness. So what would you gentlemen suggest to pair with this suit? Shirt, shoe etc.

The jacket is 3 roll 2, here are a few photos taken by the seller:

I decided to take a few photos of the suit myself, in attempt to capture the texture of the fabric as well as a better representation of the color:

Very interesting buttons!!
I have absolutely no clue about the suit or the makers at all, can any experts guide me toward the right direction? That would be very helpful.



What are your thoughts?

^ I don't like it. Okay if you are going out for a hunt, but where would you wear this?

What are your thoughts?

With all that is going on with the cloth and the buttons I think you need to go very simple and solid with the shirt, tie and shoes or else the eye will go spastic trying to see everything.

Thanks in advance.
Edit: HF, I just noticed your comment. I agree. The quarters seem to be the issue here. For reference, I think these are my two best fitting jackets in regards to quarters and I agree, they are slimming. Can this be done with jackets that are off the rack? I.e. can quarters be "slightly" closed by a tailor but not so closed they have that "boxy" look. I think I need a happy medium. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Holdfast is correct. If the front open too much due to tightness you will usually see the vents opening up too much in the back and not laying properly. Many suits are cut so you can't even button the bottom button. Just the design.

However, it could also be a balance issue. If there is too much cloth in the front of the jacket vertically the fronts can open up. If that is the case the front of the jacket might look longer than the back, but then it gets messy in the back sides, which is hard to tell from this photo.

The only way the fronts can be properly moved around is if there is extra cloth at the front edges. In RTW I highly doubt there is much wiggle room. You can however open them up, but it should only be trusted with a very good tailor.

I don't wear button down shirts with tie very often, but, I had in mind that this combo would work.

And the pants are navy.

I would change the PS color. I think they always look better if they are totally unrelated to the shirt and tie, or only pick up one minor color in the shirt or tie. For example, a yellow, or a paisley with green and burgundy.

Can't tell about the pants, but they seem to dark for the jacket.

I have a burgundy/green paisley PS, I'll try next time.

About the pants, I really don't know what to wear with this jacket confused.gif Maybe a light grey, or washed jeans (such as the ones in IST's last fit)?..

You know, I am not too sure about the trousers either. I am thinking light grey, but somebody else who is more of a sport coat guy might have better ideas.

That is sort of my thoughts too. The fabric itself definitely attracts a lots of attention. I've worned the jacket as a sport coat with black pants and tie-less, and it was great. But wear it as a suit it'd be much more challenging as I would imagine.
