Spotted this Canali DB summer jacket in the Sydney boutique, tried it on and asked the assistant to take a snap. What do you think? Seems to fit pretty well right off the rack. From memory I think it's quarter or half canvassed, fairly lightweight. Fabric is a wool-linen-silk blend. Buttons are a beautiful translucent mother-of-pearl.  Please ignore the pants etc as I was wearing them when I walked into the shop.

Nice coat but looks tight in the chest and the waist. Id try the size up.

What is the measurement of the leg opening on your pants?

There's such a thing as quarter canvassed or did you mean quarter-lined?

Regardless, the fit looks good from here, though I'm too uptight to spring for a db odd-jacket; in my mind, db is always part of a suit. It would bug me if it wasn't, your call.

It's really friggin' expensive so I would need a lot of encouragement. Alternatively I suppose I could get a tailor to copy the design, might work out a bit cheaper.

 

Feedback please.

 

 

focusing on just the SC and not the rest...I like

Coxaca, really like the SC too. 

 

Tab collar and stripes on stripes. I decided to go bold today.

Same basic premise as yesterday - PoW check suit, but arguably a bit more formal today.

 Looks good. If it's comfortable and doesn't feel too tight I'd say "Yes!". A lot of DBs look "boxy" on people. This doesn't.

If it is any comfort, it looks much less busy from a distance that what it does up close. I'm actually warming to the idea of a grey checked odd jacket, even if common SF wisdom suggest that they are useless. Wear it with charcoal flannels (another object of SF hatred) for a perfect pair nod[1].gif

If it's cold, why not?

 

Mornings are cool enough for tweed here already, though the rest of the day is still pretty warm...

I don't care what anyone says, I like it! lol

 

I've decided that, although I appreciate SF wisdom, I really don't mind if I go against it occasionally.
