Vince you are looking really good in this outfit, your best by far in my opinion.

With the collar you are wearing, a Four in Hand knot would probably fit better into the tie space.

Nearly all my jackets - whether as odd jackets or part of a suit - are double-vented. I can think of 2-3 exceptions, which are unvented (one of which is an SBPL dinner jacket and another is a very dark navy worsted flannel suit also with peak lapels that works well for less formal but still smart evenings out). I have fairly wide hips, so on non-bespoke items, the way I avoid jackets flaring out too much is to accept a little more room in the waist so the skirt doesn't kick out too much in response to that. A little extra jacket length than typical also lets the cloth settle down a bit. Some flare is nice, especially for particular English styles, but I don't like it to be excessive.

 

BTW, charcoal trousers with your latest look would have added some balancing lower half "weight" to the outfit compared to the pale grey ones. I like the top half.

Strong jacket. Dark-ish cords, with tan or mahogany boots, maybe? Country-ish stuff, anyway, for sure. Flannels and suede shoes are fine, but still almost too "smart" for such a bold check. Taking it a further notch down the formality scale with cords & boots might be the way to go. Alternatively, what about slim, dark denim (and boots, again. Chelseas... or wellies if needed for the weather! ;) )

Strong blue/white schemes are my go-to when I don't want to face a day too. :)

Not just the hat, but something about the way the coat & scarf look here, too. It works, I think!

 

 

 

 

Cold & wet day, alternating snow flurries, sleet and rain. Normally, I hate this sort of weather but it provides the perfect test for my first wearing of these black chukkas (Herring Gosforth II) with dainite soles. Reading between the lines, I think they're essentially the same as the Loake 1880 Kempton but at a slightly lower price. Anyway, I only got them last week and ordered them with exactly this kind of day in mind: awful weather but wanting to wear black shoes. So far, working great!

I'll try those suggestions. I was already going to tell my tailor to make next MTM jackets a tad longer, now I'll ask for some more room in the waist as well (plus a little shoulder extension, both things together should help disguise wide hips). Thank you.

I tried charcoal pants with today's outfit, but didn't like them for some reason...

Stitchy, there's an interesting correspondence of pattern and color between your posting today and mine - tie and socks - even though the textural difference is quite striking (in the tie at least) - similar elements giving different effects in context.

Great minds think alike satisfied.gif .

New and improved Panta tie featuring a much better knot than the prior attempt. Maiden voyage for my new Ercoles suit - Lesser 13oz herringbone.
