EDIT: Swapped the tie for a wool one, I think it works better. Too lazy to change the full body shot though  smile.gif

The jacket is rather new, but second hand, and has a lovely colour, but I think the tweed quality is poor (€ 47). The waistcoat is rather unusual and second hand from England (€ 17). The knitted tie I bought at Salvation Army (€ 3,50). And the watch is an Atlantic Manhattan from the 1960´s (€ 120)

Great stuff. I sometimes find that pieces that are not individually great in all ways - for example, as you say of this one, the tweed quality is poor, or the material is great but the lapel style is slightly dated - can still work very well as part of an ensemble if you have good eye for combining different elements that each have their own strengths. And you do this so well.

A little more sobriety from me today, and yes my shirt collar is of a more conventional style today...I still like the other one though!

All items are gorgeous! but at the wrong, sorry. It would be more or less normal, if not for the bag and tie ... confused.gif
 
There are too many different types of expressive detail.
 
1. hat
2. bag
3. tie
 
Each individually pretends very creative, but all three of these items together - bust ...
 
Once again, I'm sorry, sir, it's just my opinion shog[1].gif

Contrast stitching done on this black blazer, because without it he would have been too similar to the black-uniformed personnel. nod[1].gif
 
And the contrast stitching in the jacket there was a "special feature", which makes the jacket more alive and personal. And most importantly - it does not get dull, as is often the case with a simple black jacket.

But just a black jacket - this is not good, in my opinion uhoh.gif )

Good grief! There's a piece of fuzz hanging on the top button. shog[1].gif
Since purchasing this suit six years ago, I've lost about 25 lbs. I've had it tailored down as far as it can go.
