TTD'A opened for DM? Would have loved to see that. While I did catch their last three tours, I think DM was at their best with Music For The Masses and Violator.

Did a quick search and couldn't find any info on this. Did you mean TTD'A's own Vibrator tour?

Yes, I meant Vibrator. I told you I'm old...

Hope you gents had a great weekend..a little cooler in Cali today so broke out the turtle neck with the suit..

700

Suit: Brooks Bros Milano fit

Turtle neck: Brook Bros Black Fleece

Pocket Square: Banana Republic..

Glasses: Ray Ban.

 

Looking back, I would change the P.S but no one's perfect. The left sleeve is slightly amiss.. due to my movements when taking the picture.

I sort of like it too. I think...I think this is what I will try doing for the rest of the day.

 

I know that normally, should the jacket allow, you guys try to roll it more, right? Or even have it pressed slightly?

Depends on how the jacket is constructed. Some are hard-threes, and won't look right rolling to two. I pressed it this evening, and it seems like two-point-five is the lowest it will go. This is consistent with my other Polo II.

Not to spam up this thread with this discussion (though it has to be better than the "rise debate" and the "Dad jean ruminations"):

 

I just went to the bathroom to play around a bit with my jacket (which I don't think is a hard three...but can you explain about hard threes more...is there anything that I can use to determine this other than it's ability to roll and still have a nice looking lapel?), and I sort of liked the way it looked without very much roll...pretty much how your jacket looked. Looking at it now, the top button is about perpendicular to my chest...maybe even going a bit further out. Without any adjustment, it seems to drop the buttoning point (or in this case, where the two sides of the jacket intersect), only about an inch or so. I'll post it tonight when I get home.

This is a bespoke camel coat made by another Warsaw tailor, Stefan Stepnowski.

Nice with flower. People will ask you if you are just married. But I wonder: How do you fasten the flower? Look at old pictures of Fred Astaire. The flower is always pointing forward, but a nomal button hole is always to small for the green part of a carnation. How do you do it?

^ I would think for a boutonnière the stem is very short and/or it is pinned on.

Interesting combo btw ...

More vintage/second hand: A suit from Joseph in "Superfne English cloth". I am not sure of the age. It seems quite modern. When ceased the English brand Joseph with products for men? The waist coat is made by LOGG by H&M

I have a rather large button hole 3cm wide so it can accommodate a green part and I tuck it in. Still you need to find a carnation with a smaller green. I guess Astaire knew how to look for them. Back in the day when flower girls were selling carnations they must have had a different variety to what you can get now in a flower shop in terms of a size of a green part.

 

It is more difficult on a suit. I am struggling with a green part too. On an overcoat is fine. Also lightweight suit is not good for holding a carnation. It needs to be a proper weight.

Perhaps we have to go to our tailors with every jacket and make the button holes wider
