I like this a lot, mainly because it does an excellent "shoulder season" job. It's slowly moving towards autumn, but it's still quite hot & sunny and way too early to think about heavier materials. The colours in this outfit neatly hint at the season to come but are all in light, temperature-appropriate materials. Very well done.

Thanks, HF. I find autumn to be one of the more difficult seasons when it comes to dressing. You want to dress in more wintery colours, but it's often too warm for heavy wools, flannels and tweeds, especially when the temperature is still over 20C. Wearing linen in more muted colours is a good solution for this problem, and I guess it can also be used in those awkward late winter/early spring months. Anyway, you can put it much more eloquently then I can.

 

Your orange tie is especially festive, and although this square goes very will with it, I can't help but feeling the tie is a little alone right now in your outfit. It could use a friend or two that hint at festiveness as well. Perhaps a less dark/businessy suit would've helped?

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 )
