If this is bespoke/mtm, next time ask for a bit wider lapels, if you can. They aren't bad as is, but I think they would look better with more meat.

 

I also suggest wearing your pants a little higher in the back to get rid of the wrinkles in the back of your thighs.

 

I'd say don't wear it with black shoes.

 

Thank you for the detailed comments. Appreciate it. I'll have the sleeves shortened asap and talk to the tailor about shortening the pants (never really had anything shorter than these before).

 

The suit is MTM, and I sort of chose the thinner lapels as they seem to be more "trendy". Will go wider for my next suit.

 

And I didn't know that about the pants. I'll do that!

Good morning gentlemen,

 

Today, we have an outfit I take out once a year due to a round lapel buttonhole (seemed a bit unusual from the start when I got it 3 years ago even if Smalto started doing the same on its SS 2013 main line).

Charvet PS

 

P.S.: sorry for the mess, the apartment is being reorganized...

These are probably the last weeks I can still sport my duffle coat, which I love sooooo much! Paired it with a blue button-down shirt, red knit in blue dots, grey cashmere scarf, brown gloves and brown monks. The "keepall" bag I hold in my hand is a project of the Polish society I belong to ---> But w Butonierce - Bespoke Social Club! I think that approximately 50 pieces were made in several colors - of course they dissapeared immediately.

Having to pick through my limited travel wardrobe so I apologize if some of the items are recycled from recents outfits.

 

 

 

 

Edit: I decided I didn't like the PS above so here is an alternate one.

Looks good.

A more conservative / traditional look suits you.

Correct - the expression is transatlantic, but a little ugly for this urbane crowd I thought!  In England, that expression also refers to Stella Artois lager beer e.g. "Two pints of 'beater and a packet of pork scratchings please."

I hate running out of clean shirts due to lack of time to do laundry. This is all I had...

 

Sorry for the overexposed close-up picture, but the camera doesn't like my dark blazer. This was the lowest exposure.

 

What are your thoughts on removing the top "vestigial" buttons? Since the jacket has a quite high button stance, it may work.

I would leave as is, it looks absolutely tremendous!

Undershirts would keep your shirts fresher, longer. :D

 

OK, I'll shut up about that...you're right, the buttons on that blazer look very high.  The upper ones look a bit like nipples lol8[1].gif.  But I fear taking them off might unbalance everything and make it look like an orphaned jacket.  It's a pity - I like those lapels, and the whole thing is a very fresh departure from your regular style.

Jason I think your suit looks great, I would shorten the jacket sleeves so your cuff shows 1cm and your trouser legs so there is only a little break. I would wear red brown shoes with it.

I can't get myself to wear the same shirt more than once... even if I don't sweat smile.gif

I'm the same way. Many people are at least a little more liberal with trousers, but I still wash mine after every wear. Dry clean only materials excepted, of course.

ToF thx, and perhaps you're right, but as wiser men than me have pointed out many times in these pages, the trouble with the DW is that it looks a. like a coconut, or  b. too symmetrical and contrived

 

I'm really disturbed by the Lagerfeld comment.

Yeah, I'm just being a jerk.  Truth be told, I am just the same - shirts go straight to laundry every time, even if barely worn and despite my always wearing an undershirt.  But then I'm also fortunate that someone else does my ironing!

Hahaha....it's a smashing suit though.

 

I think a DW on a fat, shiny pink tie, is the mark of a prize dick.  But if your tie is a little thinner and more muted, I don't see why not.  I find a regular windsor is as big a knot as anything normally needs though.  As for symmetry, it's a matter of taste, but I go both ways on that: I think it would look neat to have a tidy triangle with that collar; I normally only go FIH/DFIH if the look is a bit more casual e.g. a knitted tie and sports jacket.  For less fat symmetry, then a single/half windsor or Pratt/Shelby maybe?  For me it's all about which tie I've got on, they all seem to work differently.
