The fact that I remember you saying POW odd jackets aren't that bad (or maybe it wasn't you) tounge.gif


But it's also grey and suitish, so I think I made a dumb question indeed shog[1].gif

I have said something similar in the past. I don't subscribe to the categorical orthodoxy re gray and/or POW odd jackets.

That's good. I think grey herringbones and donegals work pretty well.

 

And I have no problems with POW odd jackets as long as the checks are bold enough. They were not on your pic, so I wondered... smile.gif

 

BTW, it isn't an odd jacket, right? lookaround.gif

Nice. Do you do something for a living other than sell Shibumi goods?

Suit: Herringbone Sydney
Shirt: Kamakura
Tie: Henry Carter 9cm 7 fold repp
Shoes: Carmina
PS: Random

For being forced into a combination, it's a very nice one. It took me a lot longer than I'd like to admit to realise that I need to remove my jacket before playing with or feeding my daughter. Entirely too many trips to the cleaners.

Alright, yesterday's fit involved a poor choice in tie (thanks JB, HF). I wasn't sure; something felt off, but I figured it was because I was wearing an orphaned suit jacket. I wanted if it could see if it was workable since it had a broad pattern and patch pockets.

Anyway, today:



Clag, I like the colours and overall combination. The collar seems to be a bit big though, based on the overlap at the knot. Could just be me though.

That's a new Richard James tie that I'm quite pleased with. Bought in Dublin, Ireland (which is where I live). 


That's a very strong start.

Details:



I really like this, Pingson. Very nicely combined, and I like the pocket square's colour, close, but not too matchy or clashing. Do you have a photo of the entire square? I'd like to see the rest of it, not just the puff.

It will be hot (though happily not humid) today in NYC, and I find myself needing to be in a suit (albeit seersucker), for the annual Garden Party at the Frick Collection, a fund raiser which people attend to see and to be seen, and, with luck, photographed by Bill Cunningham of the New York Times. (However I am dressed, there is no danger that I will make the Style section of the Sunday NY Times - only recognized members of society, or patrons of the Frick much higher on the food chain than myself show up there.)

But, as a dress extra in this evening's comedy, I guess I'll pass.

Suit & tie - BB
Shirt -Tyrwhitt
Cufflinks - New & Lingwood
Shoes - C & J
Hat - Christy's, via Thomas Farthing, London












Really liking the seersucker, Crusty.

Drake's square

Olive knit (I'm selling a few here)

 

No more suits after today as NYC has turned into a sauna ffffuuuu.gif

Thanks. I agree that they could be just a tad bit shorter, but being rather tall I rather err on the side of slightly too long trousers than slightly too short - that just looks real awkward on me..

Thanks. Here's a photo I just snapped (crappy lighting shog[1].gif). It's an old silk/wool square from Drake's

I think my earlier question got lost in the mix: Do the "Rules" permit pairing seersucker as an odd (specifically as an odd jacket, as Diaz did so ably in two of his last few fits)?

Will from ASW does it well (the seersucker odd jacket thing) smile.gif

 

I don't think it's uncommon at all to wear seersucker as an odd jacket or odd trousers. DB is not as frequent, though.

Another chilly summer day in San Francisco. Threw a sweater on.

jcmeyer, Nice tie, nice (if drab!) colour palette, good fit. I'm not feeling the pinstripe trousers worn as odd trousers here - pinstripes work a lot better as part of a suit. Also, the pocket square is too matchy with the tie and looks odd.

I think they do, mostly because I do it.

Pingson: Thank you, sir. Looks good. fing02[1].gif

Excellent news, dudes. I'm beginning to formulate the fit already....
post #55003 of 78723
Yep! Agree on the pants; thought I might get away with the square smile.gif

Color palate matches the morning! Heading to the burbs now though where it will no doubt be too warm for most of it.

Thanks for the feedback.
