This looks crazy, but somehow I like it!

Re-read Ianiceman's post...saw that he was referring to a specific decade of checked coats, not just checked coats of past decades. So I should clarify that the boat is having an odd jacket that you really like but are struggling to come up with coherent combinations for. Anyway, here is mine, Sullivan and Woolley, 1965:

 

Found myself wishing I had a wool navy tie when I realized that I did, in fact, have one. Ended up going with donegal rather than flannel trousers and I think it worked...but the options are clearly very limited with this jacket. Tie, shirt, and pants...I struggle to match all of these with it. Really looking forward to getting it back from having the sleeves shortened.


Is Jacket vented?  Release top button (unbutton) to open jacket up, less boxy...

post #44074 of 78723

It's double vented. It is very much not boxy in real life; the opposite...it's actually one of the most form fitting jackets I own. Though it is also possible that I'm not understanding boxy in this context (I always thought that "boxy" referred to the waist or chest needing to be narrowed).

 

Some jackets I like the top button buttoned. Others I'll wear with the top button rolled...but I want the top button to be completely hidden if this is the case, and I don't think that's possible with this jacket. This is one of several jackets that I think look better as a 3 button than as a 3 roll 2. At least, I feel more comfortable (appearance-wise) in them as a hard three button.

I'm not a fan of this jacket (I like a bold check but not this one) but the jeans/shoes/shirt are a good (least-worst?) combination for it. I find the sweater is one extra colour too much for it though.

 

I do think that the informality of the jeans in particular helps sync up with the craziness of the jacket. Wide-wale cords would be another option. Maybe moleskin or cavalry twill too. In terms of footwear, you might also want to try brown chelsea boots or something like that if you want something different to the suede shoes.

I think if you're going to wear brown suede with navy, it has to be dark, dark brown. NOBD frequently does this well (in fact, he won several Friday Challenges with it back in the day, IIRC). I have tried the snuff/navy combo many times myself, and it just doesn't work IMO.

I don't think the shoes are bad, but I prefer black shoes on a fit like this one. I'm not sure why really, as I typically enjoy more color to less. But I'm finding that I prefer black shoes in navy/gray palettes. I think Booth is finally getting to me.

i agree, that was my thought once i saw the pics. NOBD is the master of suede.
