Doesn't look too 'matchy' on my screen - tones and saturation are quite distinct. Very nice job. Can you tell me the name of that suit fabric?post #44464 of 787221/30/13 at 3:36pmQuote:
Thanks! It is only the jacket, it's not the complete suit. Now the name of the fabric... I don't know... the label only says it's Virgin Wool. Sorry.post #44465 of 787221/30/13 at 3:49pmpost #44466 of 787221/30/13 at 4:56pmDay 3 of injured back text post :

Why always this?
It's clearly a hard three. As much as many/most people on here may decry the fastening of the top button on a three button jacket, especially if the lapel rolls low, what looks much worse to my eye is the non-fastening of a top button when the lapel roll is clearly above the top button by some margin, as is the case here.
Jacket looks and fits well, Clags - keep on keepin' on!
I really don't understand everyone immediately responding with a "unbutton the top button." I know that it isn't in fashion right now, but it harkens back to 1960's England...which provided the look isn't outlandish...gives any fit credibility.
There are some jackets that I have a 3 roll 2...the lapel rolls enough naturally that I've had it lightly pressed into a 3r2. Other jackets have flat lapels and so I fasten the top button. I like the way it looks and it just looks sloppy otherwise.
I would really like to hear the aesthetic analysis behind avoiding that top button. It doesn't work for all body types, but I'm 6 feet with shoes and have the right torso shape.
Got linked to a solid post on the matter...but it didn't really get into any real detail. Here are a couple pictures from it that I found interesting.
Looks alright...just not a fan.
12 kinds of awesome.
