Wouldn't this qualify for this week's challenge? A three-piece patterned suit is hardly a "staple."

I was wondering, what is it that you teach? I hope it is Advanced Business Wear for the Ambitious Student. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I have a solid blue shirt which is not allowed by Clag's rules for this week's challenge.

I teach biology, so I have no hope of influencing the clothing choices of my students biggrin.gif

Maybe they will at least get their white lab coats fitted properly...

Pingson, that is so good.

Clags, cool combo. White shirt I am unsure of.

Wasn't it Fred Astaire that used to sleep in his new suits to break them in?

yessir. I also heard one of the head tailors at kiton (maybe? or isaia) would always tell his clients to sleep in the suit the first day they got it. He said it helped it wear better because youd be more comfortable in it. His theory was that when you got a new suit, you were stiff and too careful with the suit...sleeping in it got it wrinkled and a bit disheveled and would help "wear the newness out of it"

I could definitely see myself doing that in this suit, so comfy nod[1].gif

That's pretty cool, hadn't heard that one before.

Hi guys-  a bit of blue on the pink makes it a whole lot easier I guess. 

Fresco patchie and sienna trews, Mears

Grenadine stripe tie, Hober

windowpane shirt, Harvie & Hudson

Silk square, Drakes

London 3 eyelets, Vass

 

I like this. Did you do CMT with Mears? Is this pretty much their house style? I don't know of another Mears besides this one (http://bespokemears.co.uk), and this is a little different. Did you just send them measurements? If so, you got great results.

Stories I've heard with no certainty of truth:

Some Lord used to have his valet wear his newly tailored suits to break them in before he wore them himself.

Fred Astaire used to throw his new suits against the wall a few times to soften them up.

Director Terrence Young took Connery to his tailor to be fitted for his Dr. No suits. Connery was a bit rough around the edges and not really in tune with the genteel lifestyle of Young (and Bond as written by Fleming), so learned a lot from Young, including sleeping in a new suit to break it in and feel comfortable in it when the cameras are rolling.

Thx, i went thru the now defunct Bookster, and Mears did a lot if not all their work. The jacket was a bit of an experiment for them and not their usual hacking jacket house style. All moot now tho ):
