Stopped in the Billy Reid store in Nashville this weekend. Cool place. Some nice fall SC fabrics if you're into a little shorter jacket. I bought this tie. It appears this is the only suit I am wearing these days.

Thanks Mr. Díaz! About the cloth, I don't, tag says 100% wool. It's from Ermenegildo Zegna. shog[1].gif

Thnaks, amigo! I agree with you, I need a brown tie, would love to wear one with this combo!

I'm a big fan of this suit, SB - quick question, though - are the flaps tucked in on purpose, and if so, what's the reasoning? I'm seeing this more often on here, and it makes me curious. I've also just picked up some pants from alterations that I'm trying with a 1 3/4" cuff, cuz I like the look. Is that what your cuffs are here?

Yep, they're intentionally tucked in. I go back and forth on doing so, but I generally prefer the sleeker look with suits. The cuffs are 1.625" (just put a ruler on 'em). I typically go with 2".

Betelgeuse, that look is a solid blue shirt away from icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I picked it up on here (maybe on AAAC?). "Fit" has never sounded right to me, and I don't particularly like the word "outfit." I've heard "pile" used, too, but that never clicked for me.

 

I think you may have pushed me over the edge on picking up a pair of dark brown chelseas, too. I'm starting to think they're cover the whole range of formality I regularly wear.

 

Beware, the RM Williams are a bit more sturdy a last than you might want for more streamlined outfits. They work best with decidedly casual fabrics rather than anything approaching formality. If you want a smarter chelsea, say to wear with slim worsted suits or the like, I would recommend something sleek from EG or Lobb rather than RM Williams. The RM Williams are insanely durable, however. I've had this pair for 6-8 yrs and worn them in torrential rain, snow and hot weather and they power through it all. Superb value; just bear in mind that they're a more casual chelsea boot than some others on the market.

 

Re: etymology of rig - thanks for the explanation. I appreciate that fit can sound a bit awkward, but it feels more natural to me than rig. Each to their own, etc, etc.

You son of a....I had my eye on that tie for weeks. I was waiting for it to hit clearance and missed it. I'm glad a stylish bastard like yourself got it though. Awesome pick up.
