Up after too little sleep last night (a work emergency). Hopefully it doesn't show in my choices today (the advantage of laying out one's clothes the night before).

Suit - BB
Shirt - Lewin
Tie - Andrew's Ties
Cufflinks - Metropolitan Museum of Art
PS - Robert Talbott
Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand
Overcoat - Joseph Abboud
Scarf - Turnbull & Asser
Hat - Selentino

Really like the orange here! I hope you don't mind me asking, but how do you fold your PS like that? I've managed to fold it in similar way a couple of times by accident, but was never able to properly recreate it afterwards.

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?)
