Another outfit idea for that suit: go very 1930s (something about the pattern & the style of the suit leans that way anyway). Think Indy when he's lecturing in class (actually, I think he wore a very similar suit in one of the movies, and paired it with a burgundy patterned bowtie and blue ?hairline-striped? shirt). I guess what I'm saying is that I wouldn't try to force it to look modern; it won't bend that way IMO. Go with its own flow. In a way, it's analogous to the 3pc flannel houndstooth I wore yesterday; there's no way I can wear that suit in a modern way; it's inherently old-fashioned.


Do you think a tweedy bowtie would work?

Brown Allen Edmonds lace-ups; a Brooks Brothers classic Oxford cloth button-down; a light brown cashmere Zegna sport coat, three-button model; tan Faconable slacks; tan Polo socks; Rolex GMT Master, steel and gold; Burberry trench coat, all cotton. It is storming in Los Angeles. Blame any misspellings on Mr. Spelling Check.

Whoops. I forgot that I have some crappy chocolate suede Bass chukkas. Sorry for the false alarm. But, still open to taking donations toward an upgrade.

SB - I don't have a problem with any perceived incongruity between your shoes and other items, but I think the cut of that jacket is not the best for you.

S., sorry to say, but that jacket is not good. The cut, with the high buttoning stance and skinny lapels, makes it look like you are wearing a cropped lab coat.

Note another problem with skinny lapels: they leave your breast pocket dangling in empty space. Some overlap is preferred.

Is this the SC that started the discussion on PoW check as a sportcoat fabric in the Good Taste thread a while ago? Looks very nice here!

One and the same! I quite like this jacket--sure, it could have a few more casual features (really wish it had patch pockets...) but I really like it. Their criticism that I needed to make it as casual as possible was spot on though--I really like knit ties with it.
