Thanks! I'd been looking for one like it for a while - it was surprisingly tricky to locate printed dots in that size in a diagonal alignment - and owe SF member Jellybean for finding it earlier this year, after I posted a thread asking for help. The dude is a tie-finding marvel; he managed to locate another one I'd been looking for too!

Thanks; it's Aquascutum.

 

Their overcoats happen to work very well for me, size/fit-wise and I generally like their styling.

I like Aquascutum have a raincoat from them. I like your coats actually good fit on you (all of them)

B'geuse: the matching border on the hank takes it the one step too far. Also do not love the shirt. But, the I'm digging the color palette.

Thanks! What shirt colour would be better?

I like it, but I'm a sucker for light grey and deep purple.

DB came - your opinion? (No alterations yet)

DBs are really hard to get right and people have really divergent opinions on how they should fit. But really small changes in the length and the shaping can shift a DB from looking great to looking too boxy or too skirty or whatever. The placement of buttons matters a lot too. I don't really know how to describe or take apart exactly how each element contributes to the overall look, but I think because the lines are so strong and well defined (e.g., one horizontal line running across the bottom of the jacket as opposed to the broken-up bottom of the SB, the long line of the peak lapel running all the way across the body to the button, etc.), misplacing them even a bit can really change the look. Add in the fact that DBs are pretty rare, it's difficult to get a DB in which the wearer looks comfortable and at home. I think the likelihood of getting a great-looking RTW DB are pretty low. Of course I think mine is amazing:

but I remember when I posted it most senior forum members didn't like it.

So anyway, on this particular DB...to me it looks skirty/hippy. But if you can, try and play around with it a bit by pinning it and taking careful note of how the look of it changes when you make it shorter or more waisted. Be very demanding and precise when looking at a DB. Then once you like it, rock it and don't look back.
