So what's the thoughts on wearing a silver / dove gray waistcoat with stroller? Is that an acceptable variation to the standard, or seen as some kind of aberration? I ask because I just think black on black jacket and waistcoat, especially for daytime, looks very severe particularly if the occasion is a daytime summer wedding or similar.

Dove gray is fine, probably the most common in all but the occasions I mention.

Silver, no way!

Tobias - Very nice combo! Is that button down shirt bespoke or vintage from the good old days?

everytime I wear this shirt, people ask me this :D

It's made by Arrow but I never seen it again. That's why i consider to send this shirt to Luxire, so they will make me more shirts with this very nice BD Collar!

You should take that as a compliment, the collar roll and shape is very pleasing. Not something you see on standard RTW shirts:)

I take it as a compliment, for sure! I really love the collar although I'm more a cutaway collar guy.

Looking good, Tobias.

Just started putting up a list of thanks to some members for getting this bad-ass thread back on the rails, starting with TobiasM and DC, then went through the pics and realized it's all been awesome as of late.

DC, that's pretty good! I think it would be better if the hank complemented rather than matched the tie, though.

Tobias - I like this fit for a number of reasons.  First, it works as a whole, for e.g. the suede shoes with a green knit, a  paisley pattern square and herringbone are all within the same genre of the "casual" or "country" vocabulary of classic menswear.  There are no conflicting signals.  Second, textural and pattern contrast are well executed. Third, very soft (I assume unstructured?) shoulder and collar roll add another, more geometric level of harmony.   Last, you look very comfortable and the vibe it gives off is that you live in the clothes.  As the saying goes, you are wearing the clothes and they not you. 
 

Don Cologne - your best SB fit so far.  Gone is the "X" at the button-point.  Waist suppression looks good and the narrow sleeve works well for you.  Only constructive criticism I can offer is did you consider a square with more contrast?  From afar they look close to the same cloth.

Thanks McBindle, this is what I call a nice feedback ;)

The shoulder is unstructured(like the whole jacket) and fits really good. I always combine the jacket with knit ties or cotton ties, I think silk doesn't fit to it. I really feel comfortable in these clothes, this is my favourite summer look. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
