Oh ,within that subset, absolutely yes. wink.gif

 

What book is it from, by the way? It looks familiar, but I can't place it. I suspect it must a book with a lot of other interesting patterns worth thumbing through alongside it.

It's a Scabal cloth but I can't say which book exactly it is from.

Thanks! Scabal comes out with some very interesting patterns at times. Very, very much further away from subtle than your suit is a purple tramline suit I have made up from one of their cloths.

 

By the way, I just took a look at their website and found that they self-publish (it seems) an interesting little magazine: http://www.bespoken.com

 

Lots of Scabal puff pieces, but actually quite amusing in places (admittedly not entirely necessarily by intent) with some actual informative stuff in there too. Worth a quick browse, anyway.

with a shirt and suit cloth as subtle (in that the pattern dissapears from 3 feet away) it works rather well.

 

you successfully combined those four pieces but I'm neither a fan of that pocket square nor the tie as items in general. the suit is great though.

is that a brown or dark blue stripe in the tie? can't make it out on my smart phone.

funny that Scabal has a tailoring operation employing over 300 people in the very city I was born in and I only yet find out about this.

 

judging by how most people dress one wouldn't assume that they had a single tailor in this province. but I haven't been there in quite some time.

One of the best so far. I really liked this.  And what amazing quality on the pictures, well done!

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 like the jacket!

 Yeah, the shoelaces bring the look down quite a bit.

I know, however, it has recently been pointed out to me that v-necks are apparently very "upper prole." I may be making the switch to crewnecks exclusively.

What do you think of the Cottonwork shirts?
Thanks, I rate the cottonwork shirts fairly highly for the price point. Like any online mtm place where you cant feel the fabrics i've had a few shockers but at the very least my fit is dialed in and they are very flexible with little additions like lighter interlining etc. That being said, now I'm slowly introducing shirts to my own line I'm buying them less and less. If I had to try a new mtm maker online i'd probably give luxire a shot, they seem to be putting out some nice stuff.
