Don't think those jeans coordinate well with the shirt, tie, jacket, and shoe combo. The more tailored look calls for a darker, more tailored denim.

Another photo by Barima, this time outside his tailors, Graham Browne, where I was volunteering as an extra set of eyes for his fitting.
I must say his new suit is looking great, it's going to be spectacular when finished.

It was only £50 but uniqlo annoyingly changed the size and shape of this jacket from last year, I have it in blue in the same size and it fits much better, (I think)
I really should have just sent this one back to be honest frown.gif I'm still learning what works and what doesn't! But I appreciate the constructive criticism.

The Uniqlo jacket is fine for casual use, but is not up to par with your CBD or standard suit looks that are in this thread, which is probably why it was questioned in the first place. Your pic says young/hipster more than banker/lawyer. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but they are two different looks. Trying to "dress up" a casual outfit with a tie is tougher. You may have been able to achieve a better look with just the PS perhaps.

Apologies for the fuzzy pics. But, maybe, that describes me on this Monday.

What?!!? How has nobody brought this up???? Ok, picture of the Rolls. If you don't have a Rolls and you are wearing that shirt you're kind of a dick. Just keeping it real.

Wool can stand really high temperature in water if is not tumbeled or stired. The problem is the movment, not the temperature. In modern washing machines for hoseholds there is a program for wool wash 30 degree Celcius. You can wash a suite there without shrinking. The problem is to get it ironed and flat after the washing. For that you need professional help.

BUT! This work with clothes that are 100 % sewn and without glue inside. Today even the most exclusive brands cut costs and use glue for the inside of their jackets. You must be absolutely sure, otherwise the cloth may get boubles and wrinkles. I should not even trust Zegna.


The method Electrolux or Wascator Lagoon (earlier called Aqua Cleen) is used by some dry cleaners. They can be hard to find. In a city of Stockholms size (over 1 million) I´ve found one washer so far, but there should be a few more.


My experience from leaving the suit to a professional washer is:  (Remember: It is a suit from the 1950´s, really dirty, with strong odour and worn)

1. Now it is really clean and the ugly smell is totally gone. No shrinking.

2. But also small holes and wear appeard. It had earlier (after dry clean twice) been hidden and fixed under the dirt, but now I have to repair some small damages with a yarn.


Good luck!


 Thanks for the reply. My jacket is not that old. I bought it off of Ebay. It smells funny but I think I can get the smell off by using Fabreeze.


 Your method would be a last resort.

The non-horizontal lie of the hem of the skirt of the jacket is not my favorite aspect of this suit, but its effect is much subdued simply by unbuttoning the jacket.


I think it looks good on you as do all of your outfits. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif



 Keep on rockin'!
