Wheat and navy? If so, it has potential. However, the rest can ruin everything.
Good inspirational fit.

Please, be gentle!

PSG, that looks great. Tie looks like madder, I love that stuff.

 

PatrickBOOTH, though the last picture wasn't really needed, that's a very nice suit. I thought Ercole's stuff was leaner (mostly looking at NYR/NYI's commissions), but that's got a nice drape. Specially like your choice of trousers with a deep single forward pleat to be worn with braces. Do they have a fishtail back?

Thanks very much, guys.

Is that the new Fox X LL stuff?

The drape in the chest looks nice.

Overcoat and suit are from my tailor in Naples, Raffaele Iorio.

That's a really nice looking overcoat.

Don't think we've heard much about him on the forum.

I'd be very interested to hear some more / see some more photos if you could be persuaded to start a new thread.

this 3roll2 is superb, however I feel like your shirt collar could use a little less height in the back and a little more in the front. that has to be more than 4cm in the back.

 

 

edit:

 

the lighting leaves a lot to be desired but let me show you what I meant:

This is a great look provided that you're (1) very tanned; and (2) either grey-haired or fair-haired. Reminds me of this old Sartorialist pic (where I think you'll agree that the outfit would work better if the guy were a little grizzled):


The camera angle makes it a bit hard to tell, but I'm pretty sure the suit jacket is at least an inch or so too long; same goes for the shirt and jacket sleeves (at least half an inch too long). Apart from that, the suit might have potential. As for the rest of the outfit, I would reconsider the tie, the white shirt, and the way the hanky is pointed.
You make a great point about the tie. irl the pocket sq is actually brighter than it looks and was choaen to do exactly as you suggested.

Monday, and a day that promises a "wintry mix", hence the rain coat. Please note that I did not find it necessary to grab my crotch in the classic "Mangiare i miei testicoli" pose - perhaps I am not as passionate about my tailor as is PB about his.

Suit - BB MTM
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - BB
PS - Robert Talbott
Cufflinks - BB
Shoes - To Boot Adam Derrick via SFA
Rain coat - Burberry
Scarf - Johnston's of Elgin
Hat - Weatherproof

Thank you for your comment and advice! Really appreciate it. I'll try to upload bigger picture! :D

I think a lot of what Frank can do is poorly reflected online. A lot of his customers that post pictures have styles that are outside of a lot of the "groupthink" on here. I've been working with Frank for ~3 or 4 years now and he basically knows what I like at this point. As for the trousers, they have a split back.

Thanks a bunch. It is actually Harrisons something or another. Forex would probably know better since I tagged along with his order from Huddersfield.

Interesting observation. I actually like the high back. If the front got any higher it would be on my adam's apple and cause much discomfort. I actually think your collar could be higher all around, but then again it seems that I have a longer neck in general than you. Your hair is awesome though.

I am fairly olive with dark brown hair. I think you're just a jealous Swede. wink.gif
