I'd say this is successful in doing so, though it'd be better (less busy) if the suit was a windowpane and not a glen check, right? icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

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!

HF - thanks. i agree. ideally i would wear a blue end on end with this, but i am going straight to a wedding from work, and needed white.

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!

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