 Nice jacket! What's it like for you as far as teaching in NYC is concerned? I read all kinds of negative stories about how hard it is to teach these days but you and the other NYC teacher (can't remember his name now) seem to be OK with it.

Thank you for your arguments, guys, I'm really changing my mind on fresco.

Thank you for the insight on the mainstream opinion about fresco. About the Blazer Suit, if I'm not mistaken, the cloth wasn't the main asset of the project (as Manton made three of those, one in fresco, one in linen and one in flannel), the details were (three patch pockets, slightly lighter than navy cloth and notch lapels).

For me, it's borderline for business. Okay - maybe not borderline but within walking distance of the border. Generally fine for work and, as you say, great for travel but not for occasions where you really need to be dressed up.

 

Not sure if my bunch is different from yours, but mine is pretty crisp all day long, except when it's humid. I'm pending to that opinion too. What do you say about fresco for casual wear?

Just for curiosity, db light gray fresco coat with hip patches and dark brown buttons: orphan or not?

I teach at a public school with dedicated students and a supportive administration.  I think both of these are essential to happiness as a teacher.  I was at a school several years ago with a supportive administration and indifferent students.  I was miserable there.  I consider myself very lucky.  I have it good.

i know this isnt directed to me but IMHO hip patch pockets and brow buttons are the antithesis of an orphaned jacket. Patch pockets have an obvious connotation, but TO ME, brown buttons on anything other than a brown suit are less formal, lending to the sportcoat/not suit look.

Pingson: that is absolutely fantastic!

 

Derek: I think you owe us a full shot, the tie is great, so is the belt and the combo.

This needed to be put together. Also, Derek I'd be wary of Gnatty. That's Sid Vicious in his avatar - at least I'm pretty sure it's Sid Vicious. You go after him and he might totally fuck you up then come take all of your clothes and convert them to the Gnatty neck.

This is awesome, and I want to find something constructive to say, but the only thing that sticks out is the slight apparent yellowness of the trousers - which as a pastelish-color sort of clashes with the more muted tones going on up top - but I feel like this is only minimally off lateral, especially since the color could be an artifact of the processes between the pants and my eyes.

I believe that's correct and that was part of the point I was trying to make - that (at least with fresco) it seems that the styling on the jacket has more to do with determining the formality than the fabric itself. That same cloth with two + hacking flap slit and barchetta as well as peak lapels certainly would not work as an odd jacket, but I can't think of any fabric, with those details, that could make that work as an odd jacket. I could be wrong though.

Far out man. I am glad that you enjoy teaching where you do - especially in a public school. The US needs more good teachers.

I agree with patch pockets in odd jackets being almost mandatary. In retrospect, I wish I had ordered them with my MTM blazer.

 

So I would disagree with the patch pockets being mandatory for a body fit reason. If you are like myself which I realize most people on SF are not and you have wider hips. Putting a patch pocket accentuate this.
