HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2862  

post #42916 of 78724

thx. gdl suggested that I try these trousers with a blue jacket, and I got this one for Christmas, which works well (other blue jackets I have don't work as well, IMO; must be the texture)

 

As self-criticism, I believe a slightly lighter tie would have worked better, but I wasn't satisfied with any of the ones I have...

 I wore a jacket like that with the same color pants but I had the white linen PS w/light blue border and a white shirt. No tie.

 

 

 You look good!

Does Stollery's, corner of Younge and Bloor, still sell Aquascutum?

 

No idea, sorry! I almost never buy from Canadian menswear shops as they tend to be very expensive and have a limited selection...

Medium blue irregular stripe 4x2 double-breasted jacket paired with 1930s/40s art deco rayon tie, dark brown pants, dark brown pocket square, and pinned collar.  The jacket's a modified (from 4x1) Pierre Cardin with marginally widened button stance and two buttons on the sleeves, but I can't seem to figure out the material.  Probably a blend.  The jacket hasn't been pressed properly in a while.  I've got matching pants but they're short enough to be plus-sixes and a fabric like this seems more sportcoat-like to me anyway.

It's not obvious in the sitting photo, so it's really not a dealbreaker, and in any case don't think much can be done in the chest, but perhaps if the jacket was let out about half an inch at the waist, it might settle a little better. It would be a workaround rather than a fix, admittedly.

 

Ha! You've noticed my injury and off-season-related weight gain! I'm a few pounds - well, more like 7lbs - over my racing weight right now. Once I have been back in training for a couple of months, it will fit as sleekly as you like, and it might even end up looking a bit loose...

Not quite like your (IIRC) Boglioli blue turtleneck but much more towards that end of the spectrum than today's much slicker jumper.

I understand. I have a couple of heathered lambswool Lockie sweaters ('Astra' and 'Moorland'), and they're great. (Heathered is 'mélanged', right?) Yours is cashmere?

A bit too much color coordination for my taste. You might find a more responsive audience in the Peacock WAYWRN thread, though.

Comfortably one of the nicest colour combinations you've worn; very nicely done indeed. I think this combination would also play even better with cords instead of flannel trousers.

Excellent recommendation, C. Stitchy, get thee to the cordery!

Could hardly disagree more. This looks very much like an orphaned suitcoat.

A bit of a provocative combination today. I posted this tie a while back and folks here werent a fan. I still think there is hope for it but you can be the judge, it is a Drakes Madder.

I like the tie and the hank, but not together.

Also, would it kill you to put a dimple in that tie? smile.gif

On a conservative background (navy suit and white shirt) I think the tie does quite well. However, not sure how good of a match that square is. I have to assume, from a distance, they'd be competing for me eye a lot. I'd also tie the tie with a dimple, but that is asinine levels of anal retentiveness.

I think this tie might also look good with earthier colors around it (think richer green or deeper grey tweed herringbones).

Axelman, does the tie look that bright IRL? It shouldn't, being a madder... if it's more matte, I'd like your fit quite a bit.

 

Sugarbutch, I love the silhouette on your suit jacket, very nice drape - is it bespoke?

Looks like a TM Lewin shirt...
