Functionally? There is nothing better than tweed in cold, rainy, weather. I do wear tweed in the city if I happen to be wearing it that day, but I agree about tweed in the evening. I threw on a tweed jacket that I had been wearing in the daytime for dinner once. No one batted an eye, but I felt eerily out of place.post #62058 of 7871710/13/13 at 6:15amOriginally Posted by Dima Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This is excellent. Perfectly appropriate for the context of a walk in a park.Originally Posted by Monkeyface

Nice suit. Difficult to tell from the photo, but putting this one together with the last one you showed us of it, I suspect that the waistcoat may benefit from a touch of tailoring to get it to fit a little closer through the waist.post #62059 of 7871710/13/13 at 6:50amQuote:Originally Posted by Caustic Man

Functionally I think you'll find that polartec fleece and goretex trump tweed in cold rainy weather. Now if you want function paired with style you may have a case!post #62060 of 7871710/13/13 at 6:58amQuote:
Context bro, context. That polarfleece and goretex is not being considered is implicit. Or do we want to go down this road?post #62061 of 7871710/13/13 at 7:00ampost #62062 of 7871710/13/13 at 7:08amQuote:
Only joshin CM. but you'd be amazed how many people I know back home in England go looking for a 'decent winter coat' and splash out ridiculous piles of cash for what look like overpriced cagoules to me. Maybe the SW&D people are more into this but it baffles me the amount of money some people are happy to put down for extruded nylon!post #62063 of 7871710/13/13 at 7:10ampost #62064 of 7871710/13/13 at 7:47amQuote:Originally Posted by Holdfast

I've had it tailored already, you can really see it when I'm not wearing the jacket.post #62065 of 7871710/13/13 at 8:32ampost #62066 of 7871710/13/13 at 9:31ampost #62067 of 7871710/13/13 at 10:52am
Got to say, I've really enjoyed some of the fits you've shown us over the past fortnight (not so much today's, but on average, they've been really good). I used to give little challenges to myself back when I used to do runs of night shifts, to alleviate the tedium, so I can relate to that aspect too.
Regarding the brief discussion upthread about the alleged impropriety of wearing tweed in the evening: I have to say this forum generates really odd ideas sometimes. Sure, if you're going to a fairly formal restaurant in a big city, then it's not the best choice. But there are many restaurants (including some very respected ones, even if we use the crude sledgehammer of the Michelin guide to judge these things) where it would not only be be entirely appropriate, but more appropriate to the setting than an evening out type of suit. They just happen not to be located in big city centres, but out in the countryside or in provincial towns. Go a further step down from that level to include the large swathe of regionally or locally respected gastropub type of restaurant, and it would certainly be much more appropriate to be in tweed rather than a dark flannel suit and satin tie and the like. You'd definitely be at the smarter end of the scale, but without being overdressed versus the ambience of the place.
Going out to dinner doesn't automatically generate a single level of required formality, even within the same food quality range or (in fact, even more imprecise) price range. The exact setting and desired ambience of the restaurant matter much more.
(this is all ignoring the more fundamental point that very few people - especially men - bother to dress smartly for dinner at all, even to places that it would be nice for them to do so. As we're on SF, it's a given that we're going to care enough to do so, so the issue of dressing appropriately to the context is more relevant).post #62068 of 7871710/13/13 at 11:22ampost #62069 of 7871710/13/13 at 12:34pmQuote:
FTFY, tweed hater! Well, everything depends on context of course.

Nicely said, Holdfast. I just don't think it is necessary/appropriate to wear a suit every time you go to eat after the sun has gone down.
As for AAS' particular outfit, I like it, but to immediately contradict my point above, I wonder if it would it have been more "acceptable" if the color palette was darker?
Always interesting to see how everyone balances the menswear "rules" in order to dress appropriately. Good stuff.
Also, Murlsquirl - that looks great!
