welp, you have to buy what you like, so i cant fault you but i think there is more than enough roon in a wardrobe for both plain blue and more "interesting" patterns. you gotta be you tho.
not really MC WAYWRN, but i love this new coat and am inclined to triple x post it. please indulge me and forgive my intrusion.

Looks cozy Stitchy! Unfortunately for me though it's getting warmer everyday as we head towards summer (my favourite time of the year, just not for dressing in tailored clothes), so I'm thinking linen and cotton instead of tweed and flannel.post #63395 of 7872210/29/13 at 4:20pmQuote:Originally Posted by Frankie22
This is true. Simple combinations with an agressive fit can be bold. Im more of a "bold" type but I cant wear the bright stuff at work. I do understand this look/fit is not for everyone.
Is that a suitsupply washington half? How is the fit compared to the normal washington? Btw, are those suitsupply trousers as well?post #63396 of 7872210/29/13 at 4:32pmpost #63397 of 7872210/29/13 at 4:34pmQuote:

sounds interesting.. had an American lecturer in music 101 at uni and his enthusiasm for the classics was infectious.

^Thanks, Pliny. I can say the same for yours!
SVB - I think that suit fits and looks the best of what you have posted here in the past days/weeks (I'm assuming the trouser billowing is just downtown LA rooftop wind and not excess material).
Looks good!post #63401 of 7872210/29/13 at 7:30pmHe's carrying too much shit in his front pockets again, which is throwing off the hang of the strides. I told him about that last time. If possible, carrying phone and or wallet in jacket pockets will help with this. I prefer not to have something that gives off radiation right next to my nut purse, but horses for courses eh?post #63402 of 7872210/29/13 at 7:54pmStitchy I do agree with your comments. It is almost impossible to do any further alterations which sucks but I just need to wear it as best as I can. I am constantly moving around so I dont mind my clothes being a little full but in the future I need to get smaller stuff as I have it all made for me. That was a 44R and now I am going to move to a 42R for a closer fitpost #63403 of 7872210/29/13 at 8:05pmQuote:Originally Posted by justinkapur

ZOMG I ALSO MOVED FROM A 44 TO A 42!!!!
sucks having to re-up on clothing, but worth looking better and being more healthy.post #63404 of 7872210/29/13 at 8:08pmQuote:
We seriously are twinsies! I definitely agree but unfortunately for a few months I didnt have time during my days to eat much so it wasnt super healthy. I have however stopped drinking soda (used to have one a day) and I had dessert after dinner everyday and cut that off.
It has helped significantly. I didnt have time to take pictures of my suit but its fairly new and a bit trimmer and shorter so its a closer fit.post #63405 of 7872210/29/13 at 9:02pmQuote:
Stitches, you've got your suit / coat and tie game down. Seriously, excellent every time these days. However, since you've cross-posted I hope you don't mind if I make some observations on how you might get your casual game to the standard of your other fits. The coat is very nice in itself but in this combination, it somehow come across as a little old-manish (and I don't mean 'mature' here). I think it's the combination of a casual coat worn directly on top of pressed trousers, in addition to beige on top of brown, but for whatever reason, the coat and the trousers / shoes don't go well together. The purple scarf and shirt are also at odds with the rest and look like you've tried to colour match very hard with each other but not with anything else. The scarf also doesn't seem to be doing anything; it's just 'there'. Compare Spoo's scarf fit just a few after yours. Okay, I know Spoo's is an exceptional scarf, but it also 'does something' there because of the way it's worn and the careful attention to colour and pattern. Finally, people in SW&D have mentioned your thing for 'pointy' shoes, but this would definitely be a fit for rounder shoes and more casual trousers IMHO.
In general, I don't think that casual clothing even in CM is just a matter of not wearing a tie or throwing on a casual coat over pants and shoes that you'd normally wear with a coat and tie. I think there's a whole different set of considerations around reduced formality in terms of cuts, texture, shape (in the case of shoes or boots), pressing and so on. I think that this is where a lot of CM casual fits go wrong (and a lof of them do - it's one of the reasons, I don't really look at the CM Casual thread any more).
Thinking along these lines, it's not that the coat could not ever worn in less casual combinations. In fact, I think you could absolutely wear this coat over a suit and it would work. There's something about the in-between, the no-man's land that you're in here that can make everything stand out as problematic in some way. Do you know what I mean?
