HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3593  

post #53881 of 78722

The button stance on Holdfast's jacket seems pretty well balanced to me. It might be a tad high relative to his height, but since the jacket itself is quite short, any lower would look weird IMO.

Yes but I'm willing to bet that's an R, not an L. 

 

I know they don't change it from R to S from what I've heard. Someone in the SS thread said they do change it from R to L but the side by side pic didn't really look like it. I don't want to post another members picture though.

Yep, that's a 34R. Bear in mind that I'm typically a (very) Short in almost every brand, and you get an idea how short the Havana cut is. The jacket length was shortened a further 0.5" or so from standard though (for a first purchase from SS, I decided to let the salesperson decide most aspects of the alterations, just to see how well they'd handle the whole process). It's the shortest jacket in my wardrobe except a BBBF BB0 that's 0.25" shorter (no length alteration on that one), but the BBBF has more closed fronts so it doesn't appear as short as the more open Havana. I think that in future, I won't get a Havana shortened (or at least, not by quite as much). That's a minor thing though; I'm content with the length on this one as it currently is, as a different option to have within my wardrobe.

 

And thanks for the +ve feedback, mrjester!

You can special order up to a 38 as long as they have fabric available...although they would be final sale, so you'd be taking a shot in the dark if you're not familiar with the fit.

Nice pliny, must admit I'm a big fan of brown and camel mixed together. A bit summery though even for up North where you are no? Isn't it bucketing down up there?

Discussion at our house:


Wife: You're wearing that?

Me: Yes, what's wrong?

Wife: It's a white suit.

Me: It's cream. Anyway, lots of people wear white suits.

Wife: Like who?

Me: Tom Wolfe, Prince Charles . . .

Wife: Colonel Sanders.

Me: Are you saying I look like Colonel Sanders?

Wife: No, but you could pass as Colonel Sanders' bodyguard.

Cotton shirt: Jos A Bank

I think you pull it off, Kai. Maybe a tie that stands out a bit more (the tannish color of it washes out a bit to me with the suit)?

Wore this to a photo show this evening. Probably not super SF approved, given the massive mismatch in formality between the shirt and everything else, which I think still looks good. Any feedback is welcome.

Kai nice look.  u'd need a tash n goatee to look like the Colonel IMO.  Hows the Dupioni feel? HRH wears it quite a bit when he's visiting the colonies, but a lot of peeps say it wears warm.
