Tie is vintage Made in England; that's all I know
Square I know even less, except that it's silk and hand rolled
Links are enameled sixpence
Belt trafalgar
Trou Borrelli
Socks Panthy
Shoes are AEs (I can feel your collective distaste like a disturbance in the Force....)

I really like a lot of the elements of this fit. I think there's a bit of pattern overload going on though, which can be fixed by going with a solid shirt. The scale of the tie dots, shirt stripes, and jacket pattern are all very similar. Four patterns are very hard to get right, and I think with this fit, three patterns would be perfect. Lots of great pieces here GM, I love the tie.

NEWB QUESTION:

Okay, so I see that a lot of you don't wear a full suit (same jacket and pants combo) but do a heck of a good job of combining different jackets, pants, ties, and shirts. A whole lot of variety going on over a full suit (not that there's anything wrong with that). Why do you do this? I ask only out of curiosity.

I do it for two reasons:

1 - I prefer the variety in colors/textures.
2 - I live in a very casual area, ag centric. Even wearing a sportcoat gets me comments about how I "look like a preacher"...crazy.

Hi guys,

 

Not from today but still from this week. Just FYI, the trousers have a strange crease but that's due to calf-high socks that were keeping the fabric from falling down as it should.

 

Oger

Finamore

Boivin

Charvet

Carmina

"SIGH"

Here on the Capitol Hill, everybody wears the "uniform." You would get compliments left and right if you were to walk thru the Hill...and some funny stares.

Don't let the 'preacher' bit get to you Irate, they are the ultimate losers. Some people just don't get it, ever!!

Geting this PS suit today from ebay.com. Fits very good, maybe I make the pants a little bit longer.

Gat the sleeves lenghtened as well Don. You might also want to consider tapering the trouser leg as well. I know because of you size the straight leg is the way it is, however I think the silhouette could be improved if you tapered your legs

Details on suit? I ask because I have two BB suits that look virtually identical to your suit above (including pin striping, color, button stance, lapel, etc). Also, big thumbs up (and not just because I have similar suits smile.gif ).

Totally not what I'm wearing today, but I received my cashmere tie today from MoL, and couldn't resist putting on my cashmere jacket to give it a try. Is there a rule against cashmere on cashmere? Ignore the shirt, couldn't be bothered to change.

Nice suit Don.  I would agree that it's a good idea to make the pants a bit longer.  Fuller pants should have a slight break and a classic cuff (1.5 inches or so).  I know today's fashion is to get pants without a break, but that works best with slim pants. Pants with no break look nice for a static shot of someone standing still, but their short length will expose the ankle and sock when a person is walking, and cause the bottom of the pants to flap around.  This may be okay for slim pants, but fuller pants will have too much material waving around at the bottom when walking.  So I would get a slight break, and cuffs. 

 

My advice would be not to taper the pants.  They already have an appropriate amount of taper, and they need to be kept fuller in scale to balance a larger jacket.  This is most apparent if a picture is taken from the side: http://www.styleforum.net/t/356395/hollandes-and-akihitos-suits-a-comparison

 

You've picked up a great suit, and your intuition to make the pants a little bit longer is right.
