HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3235

Latest MTM jacket experiment, with higher armholes, wider lapels, very lightly padded and roped shoulders, roomier chest and waist, and open quarters. 3 roll 2.5, smoked MOP buttons.

 

Will probably close the quarters a bit (or make them less rounded), and try to ask them not to make the lapels so "rounded" for future commissions; but overall I'm rather happy. For the price I paid, it doesn't get much better than this.

 

Strangely enough, this jacket fits better on my right shoulder than on my left - it's always been the other way round.

Love the lapels on that jacket, Mr. Díaz!

I love their width, but the MTM house really needs to add more lapel patterns. They all have rounded points like this, and I would prefer that they didn't...

Yeap, when I said I loved them, it was because of the witdh the corners would look better if not rounded.

Thanks for the kind comment. As for the PS fold, it's quite simple - fold the pocket square in half, diagonally, three times, spreading the points a bit with each fold, then fold the triangle of what you've got left in half, laterally, and simply stuff into your pocket, points end down. Separate, push, pull, re-tuck "to taste", as the recipe books would say . . .

Not sure, sorry.

Looks like some sort of nailhead pattern. Can't tell 100% based on those photos though.

Looks like what we call "fil a fil" here (end on end?)

Here's a closer look

Wtf, I didn't even notice the plaid at first glance.

Don't feel bad. It really does fade away from about 6" inches away.
