Autumn is coming to Italy as well, so I'm saying goodbye to my cotton suit. And I'm doing it with the kangaroo tie.

It's actually a vintage Banana Republic from way back when they sold actually safari clothing. And wool ties apparently.

Question - does the scale of the tie pattern clash with the flecks in the tweed?

Wait, did you wear a tie to the movies?

I have always thought pleats+cuffs or no pleats and no cuffs. Is it fine to mix and match these options? If so, I will see if there is enough fabric to add some cuffs.

 

Also, Victor I really appreciate all of your detailed feedback. However, I must admit you use a ton of language I am not understanding. Are these things that can be done for this suit through tailoring or things I should look for when suit shopping for the future? Is there a sort of primer where I can read up on this stuff? Maybe you have some pictures illustrating differences in lapel roll, or drape etc? Is there an example of an ideal jacket type that you think would match my body well? That way I can get a better idea of what I'm looking for? I'm trying to soak up as much as I can through browsing these forums. For now I will start googling all of the terms I don't understand. :P

 

I appreciate you all helping me out.

 

 

As promised some reading indications. This article, from Put This On, makes for a nice synthesis on the main silhouettes. Also, here's an article that I wrote a while back about chest shape, it has some generic concepts and links to other great articles on the subject. However, that will only do for catching up with the terminology, for a deeper understanding on the menswear foundations I'd recommend you to 1 (probably the best blog out there and the first that I got to read), 2 (another great blog, but the approach is a bit more enthusiast oriented), 3 (a menswear blog for the everyday guy that is not as obsessed as some), 4 (the best magazine on menswear, despite of the unintuitive web design), 5 (a bit of self-promotion, but I'm starting to offer some content on the bespoke process that I've not seem available yet). Okay, through each of those suggestions you're going to find many other reading suggestions. There you've, at least, some weeks of reading.
Regarding your questions. That's the general "rule" on cuffs, but cuffs it if it pleases you, I have some flat fronts cuffed. I just feel that a PoW three piece should have cuffed trousers. Unfortunately, those were guidelines for another purchases. Honestly, I'm not sure which kind of silhouette would fit you best to my taste, however, I'm quite sure that I'd like to see you with more extended shoulders, a higher waist point and with a higher buttoning point.

Anyway, good reading! :D

I like that tie, but the best advice I can give you is to lose those shoes immediately. They drag everything else down, and you're otherwise too well-dressed to have them.

Thanks for the thumbs last week. Drew things back a bit today -- cold(er), wind and rain.

I feel exactly the same way - picked up some really cheap suede and it makes me happy not to worry too much about them.  Also, I find Herring to be great guys to deal with, I've had a few pairs from them over the last couple of years.  

 

How do you find the fit on the AS?  I only have one pair and I don't really know much about the lasts - mine are only just wide enough in the toe, yet surprisingly broad in the heel in comparison.  Near enough for the price I paid, but I'd be interested to know how yours compare to others you have.

I really like that, Don.  The clean, sharp, simple jacket is flattering I think, and the trousers are a great fit and style for you.  The whole thing really works - nice tie and the shoes are the perfect accompaniment I think.

I went to the movies tonight and saw "Rush".  It was pretty good.  I wore a suit throughout, felt no need to loosen my tie even while fully reclined in my comfy seat and sipping my milkshake.  I did remove my jacket for most of the actual movie, but was sure to put it on as soon as the lights started coming up again.  Is this wrong?

Heck yes.  Took the words right out of my keyboard.  There is nothing brings an overall appearance down faster than nasty shoes, in my book.  Or a novelty tie.  But I think the fact that both rank together says enough.

Well, yes, but also dinner.

 

Beautiful tie, GMMcL.

The last on these shoes is rather wide, so in reality I should probably have sized down half a size, but the fit was close enough that I didn't bother replacing them. But Edward Green they are not....
