Thanks! That is one awesome jacket Pliny (details?) and it work great with the light grey trousers. I've been looking at that tie too t Ed's site . My only minor critique is that I wish the tie was tied a little bit shorter - to the top of the belt or there about.
Definitely get the tie. I bought the brown and the navy blue version as well...wearing the navy today. Easily two of my favorite ties.
its funny because im wearing that exact jacket today HAHA!
pliny - very nice. its really frustrating when a lovely light blue shirt looks white in the pic isnt it? i hate when that happens with my pics. i like your combo as it, but i am imagining it with the color blue you mentioned and i think it must be excellent.
Holy Batman, those are huge lapels! Let's not hope it's too windy in your neck of the woods lest you will achieve lift off .
Seriously though, I don't mind big lapels and I actually think they look much better that the skinny stuff that has been in fashion the last years. But what I really can not condone are huge lapels combined with such a high gorge that the peaks actually stick up above the shoulders (as they appear to do in the close-up). That is just crazy...
