Thanks for the comments, all.

You're holding my comedy cravat wummery against me?  Or you really didn't like the grey linen?  Man, I love that suit.  Anyway, appreciated that raspberry socks are not to every taste!

those are some whimsical peak lapels...

 

Yeah, I do have that tendency to want to fiddle with little details.  I always figured embroidered initials and such were a bit insecure (like personalised number plates - I know it's my shirt/suit/car!), but still can't resist putting something odd in there.  The buttonholes you wouldn't notice at first glance; as for the lapels..well...I can be an intense and serious dude work-wise, so a little whimsy doesn't hurt!

I know what you mean.  I just kind of like that buttoned-up three piece look, but maybe it looks odd to some with a two button jacket.  One of my linen ones is three button, will post to show the different proportions. Also adding lapels to the waistcoats on a couple of others.  It's a balance for me, liking the very formal three piece while having to stay very light-weight in a hot climate.  

Re. "previous work", also not digging grey linen, or still offended by cravat and "eye-fuck" socks? crackup[1].gif

and dude. I understand color coordinating... but you match the purple to a fault.

 

Yeah, I do have those on several suits.  If it's any consolation, the next batch just have the lapel buttonhole and the last of the sleeve buttons in odd colours.  But, each to his own, eh?  As for "matching", I never allow anything to match as such, but do tend to have maybe two "families" of colours going on, and then dilute it all like this with a plain white shirt or PS.  I can see this purple/raspberry/burgundy mix just isn't for you, even against a conservative blue-grey suit. But yeah, it is a regular colour theme in my style; shoelaces get in there too, especially if the shoes are black and conservative.  Thanks for the input, though, always interesting to see through others' eyes.

crusty, lovely outfit, great new shoes.
Hope the donated pairs will bring the shop some money.
I especially like the second pair from the right of the top row as well as the far left and right ones of the second row.

mimo, does your work environment not require to be dressed conservatively or do you hold a high ranking position so you can decide on your own whether you think those little twitst are approriate or not?

Most of my suits are blue, grey, somewhere in between, solid or pinstripe, and usually three piece.  I pretty much never wear loafers for work, occasionally a simple monk, usually dark formal lace-ups.  So the basics are always pretty conservative really.  As for being appropriate, well I run my own businesses so I guess I'm only accountable to myself and my partners.  There's also the aspect of customers of course, some of whom are senior military or security people.  But in this environment, I enjoy playing the novelty English eccentric role from time to time, to offset the spikier side of my persona and the sometimes serious nature of business.  Adding a bit of dandy-esque novelty seems to be something that works in the bigger package - I'm the novelty Arabic-speaking well-dressed foreigner anyway, so camping it up just a tiny bit seems to be something to which my clients respond.

I'm so jealous of you tall & slim guys.
The silhouette you are able to achieve with a well fitting suit is so damn flattering and something a small/skinny guy like myself can only dream off.
What is that zigzag stuff around the pockets though? RTW garment with pockets still sealed like that? Why are you not keeping it?
I enjoy pictures of bespoke adventours so much, thank you a lot for sharing.
Also very impressiv what a loss of some weight can mean to the fit of a bespoke garment.
I hope you will keep your weight stable from now on so that the adjustments to the suit will pay off in a silhouette as lovely as yywwyy's.

I am short! The wonders a well-fitting suit will do for you.

How short and how wide of a waist?

@mimo, I see.
Being liable only to oneself is a great thing to have.
Also, judging from your explanation your dress seems to reflect a lot of your personality and I think that's a great thing as well, at least as long as it's not into others peoples faces.
I might not agree with all your clothing decisions but I will be able to look at and judge them from another angle from now on.

Thank you.  I think it's important to dress for oneself.  Today, unusually bright - another linen number like the grey one, but three button.  And no raspberry socks...;)

I've decided colored laces just aren't appropriate with a suit.

I think your collar would profit from a wider spread and longer wings.
As is I think the tie knot looks very big for the spare space that is given to it.

Crust those are a lot of shoes for donation, you are one generous gentlemen. Wow.

Señor Crust, say it ain't so! You're giving up on the Peal monks that were our sartorial connection. It feels like a small part of my internet world has died. biggrin.gif

A fall morning calls for shawl and shell.

These jackets are quite well made for the price, I've dissected a few of them that became too big on me. They are half canvassed and sell for €165 - €300 depending on the fabric (I got this one on sale for €120, it's half-lined wool). It needs to hit the tailor for shoulder adjustment though.

What can a tailor do to adjust the shoulders on a jacket?

I have a lot of shoes left - trust me on this - and a Manhattan apartment. That is part of the motivation for the donation.

Giving up the BB Peals is the most painful of the donations, but the recent purchase of the black Finsburys, which I prefer (albeit slightly), and the lack of storage space in my apartment, it had to happen. Sorry, Mr. Butch.

Please excuse the jacket sleeve bulge. Shirt sleeve was rolled underneath.
