Thanks, it was the first time I've worn the outfit together and wanted to see what worked with the jacket as I only bought it last week. I will certainly be experimenting with it over the summer as I can see that jacket getting alot of wear, as for a belt, what colour? Dark brown, I only have a black belt at the moment as my brown one broke Cheers Nick
You're welcome. In my personal opinion, a black belt will look best. A brown belt will give the bottom-half of the fit a very brown-ish look in combination with those chinos, which decreases how fresh and summery it looks. But if you feel like brown would work well, don't hesitate to try. Edit: too bad about your brown belt, though. Did you take good care of the leather, like nourishing it with a care product?
I am so accustomed to the usual Spoo-Pose that I was taken aback by the unbuttoned jacket. Is that a first for you? Something for the summer?
As far as the tricks go, I say when someone is exhibiting that high level of style, mere mortals should just assume that what he is doing is correct. Blown away by the entire outfit, especially love the tie. Kudos, particularly for making a challenging summer outfit come together so well.
A single bad photo of my getup while photographing a friend's wedding yesterday. Actually my wife photographed, but she was also a bridesmaid. I was kinda like the grip, except during the ceremony and other crucial wedding party shots.
was waiting to post this until the actual online release but I got my Epaulet sportcoat the other day and while I don't have the matching pants yet, I tried it with the deadstock olive pants from last fall and this is the result. probably wouldn't pair these two together otherwise, esp since I'm be getting the navy blazer as well.
I like your glasses frames a lot. Are they OP by chance? A few intended-to-be-constructive criticisms: 1) With your long, thin neck (not unlike mine), I'd suggest a considerably taller shirt collar and maybe even jacket collar. 2) The front-balance on this coat looks off quite a bit, likely from erect posture. I'd wager that's also why the quarters look so closed.
