While I personally can't wear a hard 3 button suit, I appreciate the look of it on you. Well done, upr_crust!

I fully understand the difficulties of wearing a hard 3-button, if one is not tall and thin - had I anything to say about it, I would have preferred a two-button closure for all of my three-piece suits, but the RTW ones are all hard 3's. Only my MTM three-piece is two-button.

As a "heavy-set" man, I agree to a point - the three buttons and shorter lapel can make one look a bit like a stuffed sausage.  But I've found that's more if you wear it without the waistcoat.  If the waistcoat also buttons up high and is worn (as my post above), I think it restores the balance and is pretty neat, even if you're not a salad-and-hair-mousse SF type.  Anyway, yours is great - like the lapelled waistcoat too.

 

That said, I still go for two buttons by default - all my three piece suits bar one or two.

They look totally fine! I think it works casually. Certainly refreshing from the dark raw denim we see all the time with similar outfits.

This shirt is more purple than I remember it being. I tried to salvage these too-short pants by wearing them with boots, but I think I'll just have to bite the bullet.

Okay, so a few of you are going to hate this suit. The fabric is a seriously FU heavy tweed (from Dashing tweeds). The cut is unapologetically British, with firm shoulders and a nipped waist. And it's a three-piece, with high-waisted trousers. I wish I could get a better picture because it's worth it, but I'm rarely at home when there's enough light to take a picture outside, plus there's a foot of snow on the ground right now anyway... so for now, you just get this. I love it and it's perfect for this weather.

You've already had plenty of feedback on the suit/etc which I have to largely agree with, but no-one's yet mentioned that fantastic overcoat. Is it vintage? I seem to recall something not entirely dissimilar on eBay a while ago?

Whoah!  Hate it?  I think it's brilliant.  Firstly, if you're making a suit that's so bold, then heavy, traditional cut, three piece and high trousers are totally the way IMHO.  Although winter never really happens here, maybe I should show a pic of the one I had made a couple of months ago.  But yours is crazier.  The only thing I wouldn't do is the bow tie, especially in that colour.  I get that it picks out a colour in the tweed, but the pattern is already making such a big statement, that a lime bow tie is at risk of pushing it into the realm of costume.  I think a straight tie and a more serious colour and tone would work better.  That suit is making a big enough statement so I think it needs a role-reversal: let the accessories stay firmly in the background while the suit sings!

Fierce jacket - I like.  Understated tie and PS kind of reinforce what I just said.  Looking good.

Seriously good taste - that's a lovely suit; PS is beautiful.

i love the suit and the fabric.....HATE the bowtie though. and i love bowties. Puts me in mind of Col Sanders. IMHO the suit with the bowtie is just overkill. A nice dark green tie would really look great here. Or a normal sized bowtie. Proportions are very important.

For such an SW&D look, I would ditch the hanky and lapel pin, and also consider replacing the jeans with something hipper. But very good overall!

Terrible suit. If it is indeed bespoke, I would advise you to look elsewhere for your next commission.

Not really a fan of the outfit as a whole (especially the fugly pants), but that sport coat is right up my alley. For once, a buttoning point that sits exactly where it should!

Personally, I love the suit. The bowtie is wide, but IMO that's no bad thing at all when you have such crazy suit, especially as it looks as if the bows will go floopy and limp as the day wears on. A ribbon (ie something totally unstructured) used as tie would be even more anachronistically enjoyable. I keep meaning to buy some cloth to use for that purpose.

I used to have a shirt like that (brown with grey/cream stripes?) and had the devil of a time co-ordinating it with anything, despite it looking pretty in and of itself. It's not formal, not truly casual, not daytime, not really night-time, not businessy, not totally relaxed. Ended up getting shot of it. Mine had a regular collar though; if yours is a button-down I suppose that helps matching a bit. FWIW, your combination is better than anything I ever came up with for mine.

It's nice. A bit monochrome for me, but then again, you all know what I like, so... Still, even so, I find myself wishing for at least some kind of pattern in the tie. Nice, though.
