Holdfast - love the tie. I think a brighter PS might have helped it blend better with the rest

For your next B&R commission, you might consider having the breast pocket placed closer to the lapel.

Maybe wear it a few times and take it back to B&R if the fit issues don't settle out?

I like the color and cut in general, though!


It actually has already been re-worked quite a bit. When if first showed up, it was a lot worse. Beckett & Robb's alterations tailor said that the armholes were made too tight, causing bunching, and the shoulders and upper chest had too much fabric (likely due to lack of padding.) It is much much better now than it was, and I figured I would wear it a few times and see how it "settles." This is my first wearing after the alterations, and I do think it likely needs a bit more tweaking, but things are definitely moving int he right direction. Sadly the tailor is now out on maternity leave, and I don't really trust anyone else to work on the jacket,, so I will need to wait a few weeks for her to come back to work.

Thanks, one of the few perks of living at 63N is an early fall (and also not a single day with temps in the 90s smile.gif )

The colours in this outfit neatly hint at the season to come but are all in light, temperature-appropriate materials. Very well done.




Talking of bright & sunny:

But I feel like that BD needs a bit more roll. If you moved the buttons up ever so slightly, I think it might be even better.

It rolls pretty well IRL, but not quite as well as my heavier oxford versions (this ones a pinpoint oxford) but I think the way I hold the camera out in front of me flattens the roll a bit maybe. I don't really know. It's not the laundering because I wash and iron my own shirts. Anyway thanks for all the thumbs comments etc.

Today -





Suit: MJ Bale
Shirt: Kamakura
Tie: Henry Carter brown dot 7 fold
Shoes: Carmina
PS: Henry Carter Irish linen
