Asked to visit a school near the coast to do some teaching on a hot summer's day... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
... means there's the opportunity to slope off to a local beach at the end of the day, losing the jacket & tie for a very British seaside paddle...

Very nice outfit, only thing I don't like is the tie - too shiny and formal for the rest. Would have looked great with a navy grenadine or a rust knit tie - something to complement the structure of the jacket.
The shot at the beach is great though, you look very happy.
I have an unlined 3 fold (maybe 4 fold) grenadine, from Hober. It was an experiment, done against David's advice. It's interesting, but feels way too delicate and doesn't drape spectacularly. The knot, however, is amazing.
As far as ads, all I get are charity ads. Tons and tons of them. Right now, Earthshare.org
Really, the knot is good? Would have not expected that. I like ties that are a little thicker (and most of our Shibumi ties are).
I also get the charity ads Maybe Karma is trying to tell us something?
Well, the model was called Berlin, so I kinda had to buy it...
I dunno, man....seems like your suits have built up shoulders and look kinda dated, your shoes look to be heavy / thick American Midwestern soles....have you thought about buying a new suit that's more updated, soft/ comfortable? I think you'd look sharp as razors in one of deez:
I know that you're happy with your thrift finds, but I also thought a few times that you probably would look great in a less structured suit.
Great outfit, only thing I don't like is the brown tie; too much brown imho. Navy would have been an easy alternative.
