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.

Style! And vintage is profitable both for you and your taylor.

love it.

 Yeah, I like it! I might do the same (check out the sales etc.) for some casual sport coats. I want to get a brown and maybe a grey windowpane SC.

I agree to an extent... Green Sub: Yes, too casual. However, a blue face, or platinum, gold, stainless, etc. I think would work.

Really not feeling today's fit but figured I would still post to perhaps get some helpful feedback. I think the worst part is the PS which felt like it should work but seems kind of washed out and useless in the picture. I actually think this PS might have worked with yesterday's outfit. Tie is Hober grenadine, lighter color IRL, dimple is not so great smile.gif




Edit: Bonus shoe shot:

actually, i like more subdued and muted PSs like that, both in color and texture, much more than the brighter ones. smile.gif

^^^ I think a brown pocket square with pin dots, just to counter the stripes in the shirt, would have made this look great. I still like the concept though.

I've have two suggestions for your next trousers, but it's purely personal preference and purely nit picky. 

I would reduce the leg opening (1cm may do) from the seat to the hem and I would lengthen the waistband fastener.

 Don't reduce the leg opening! i see  Good proportions. Considerable full cut trousers. Classic colors. Well done, but don't forget to wear also a BELT

Finally got a camera remote.

Shoulder fit is not perfect, too... The problems of RTW.


The lenght of trousers is not correct. They are also too slim fit. Slim fit is barely acceptable with jeans, but with wool trousers you cannot stand it.

Really not trying to be a hater here, I do generally like your stuff, but this one is just way too much for me. I would have liked it more with a more reserved shirt and tie.
