Nice fit, considering the pedigree!
Just saw your brown(?) trousers and it's exactly what I envisioned, much flattering.
Copying you spoo and put a collage of what I wore to the office yesterday..maybe it works or not.. not too sure..
One or two close up's just in case..
Suit: Zegna Slim Milano
Shirt: Hugo Boss
Tie: Burberry London
Pocket Square: Banana Republic
Almost the weekend all! lol
I wanted to avoid buying any more RTW jackets, but sales have started and after going through every single jacket in my habitual department store, I ended up getting this unlined, unstructured, unpadded POW, with a set-in sleevehead (is this what they call "spalla camicia"?), from a pretty well known Spanish local brand called "Mirto". Thought it was rather nice, and fits well (needs sleeve length and sleeve tapering altered, I guess I'll post a full pic later in the afternoon).
PS is from Kent Wang.
Here's the second vintage bespoke three-piece I picked up before the holidays. This one was made for the same guy as the grey one from a couple of days ago, but 5 years earlier, in 1960. I think he was slightly heavier then as the trousers have more room in the seat - although this could reflect an the fact that this one is from before things got a bit sharper in the early to mid-60s. In any case, I am going to have the trousers altered. But otherwise, this is also great and the fabric is again wonderful: the first picture is most accurate for colour, but close up IRL it is a rich navy/mid-blue pinpoint. Worn today with a CT Black Label shirt and an Engineered Garments bow tie. Cufflinks (in the close-ups) were made by a jewelry designer in Edinburgh from old watch parts. The braces (suspenders for those from the USA) are also vintage 1960s silk from Countess Mara.

Hmm. I see what you're saying but I don't mind a bit of humour in what I am wearing. I did try a smaller (and more formal) bow tie this morning but it somehow didn't seem to work. Maybe I will try it again now...
