Thanks Hampton! icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif

 

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?

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. shog[1].gif

I guess that's for the maximum tightness the jacket go for in the waist.

wearing jeans with a tie...(maybe not a good idea) but I already felt overdressed for the library even in the uppity west side suburbs of Detroit. I was going to wear a green and burgundy small print paisley silk square but chickened out...

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.

I feel the same way. I just don't like those huge, clunky, or over engineered watches that seem to be the thing these days.
