Is the jacket linen or wool?

Linen

I guess looking at it again, that was a dumb question. Especially since I own a blue linen SC.

I have forgotten to add the Outtake Picture:

MF,  The shirt and tie look great with your suit. A club collar is a nice change of pace regardless of what others say. I really like everything about the suit. Great overall look.

@ Butler - thanks for the info
@ DonC - another good fit for you
@Tobias and admirers - Arrow was a brand revered by the English mods of the sixties, originally made in USA IIRC. Never seen them in ages until. I saw some Arrow shirts recently in Sears and they looked nothing special at all, so it could be that you have a vintage there and the brand has been more recently appropriated by some made-in-the-far-east knock 'em up brand.
@Victor - very nice texture on that Donegal, is it really cold enough in Brazil to need a winter SC and sweater too?

I've also seen some "new" Arrow shirts, but they were not as good as my shirt and they didn't had the nice BD Collar.

Interested in what you would have picked. I'm thinking a predominantly madder red (dark, muted red) or brownish hank would have gone well. Or maybe a blue madder with some hint of color present elsewhere in the ensemble?

Thank you, I bought the cloth from a local shop. Brazil is a country with continental proportions, encompassing many climates. I'm at the extreme South, here we face -15°C at winter, enough to warrant me a 30oz tweed Ulster topcoat that's in my closet.

First one maybe (if not showing too much green), but the second is definately too matchy...

Brrrrrrrrr!

We are always presented with Copacabana Beach as the quintessential image of Brazil! I know its a huge country and its your mid winter there, but never thought of it getting that cold even in the south!

Monkeyface, incredible suit - very jealous. I, like others, am not enamoured of the shirt - but you've already explained why it had to be worn that day.

Today with a SB suit

 

 

 

Just adding my thumbs-up to the chorus of approval. In this instance I don't think a matchy square is such a sin. And the fit of the jacket is perfect. I suspect your recently-announced diet/exercise regime is already paying dividends. Kind of inspires me to do something about my Louis Treize paunch.

OK, I'm a newbie, but I haven't seen a crew-neck jumper included in a fit on this thread before. I like this one as a stand-alone piece but not sure I'd wear it under a SC, especially one with such a beautiful lapel structure, with which this jumper competes for attention.

 

Come winter, do folks here ever include overcoats in their fit pix?
