Wih regard to the coat itself and going in order from less to more my personal preference-- Objectively, the collar doesn't fit very well. It's better than a lot of what you see, but should be tighter. This could be a function of the way he's standing but it's odd to see that much drape in the chest without much shaping at the waist. The soft lines on the lapels and the lowish gorge look a bit dated. And not in a good way. This is somewhat personal opinoion but it looks like a hobbyist's suit. A paddock stance with crescent pockets seem like an exercise in cramming as many semi-obscure references into a single garment as possible. And with the predictable result.

I imagine the middle American cultural reference will be lost (and count yourself lucky) but I'd call this coat a Sizzler sundae.

 

Judging the collar from that photograph is objectively a mistake. The second is a result of not having front cuts and the way he's standing. I'm not seeing a problem with the lapels. Agreed, it's a hobbyist's coat. The coat is a reference to Windsor's coat bellow, but, yeah, I see where you're getting and I do agree with you on this one, though I get the feeling that he has no trouble pulling it off.

I think this is your best look to date! You have come close to excellence in the past but tend to just miss the mark by wearing those (God awful) horse-bits....

I am a fan!

Nice, but would prefer it with black shoes instead. Everything is fairly formal... and then come the mid-brown shoes.

 

 

 

Got a new crewneck from Aran Sweater Market in the post, so going casual today. Probably should post to the casual thread instead but I barely go in there, so...

Thanks HF. The suit is so dark it seems almost black, eventhoug it is navy. With navy I prefere brown or burgundy shoes, black would look like crash. :-)

First time wearing this SC. The right sleeve needs to be let down a bit.

I always think your suits/coats fit and look great, but I just don't like the matchy-matchyness of your tie/square/lapel items. Just my personal preference.

I'm completely fine with this. However, as you can express why you hate it, I can express why I like it. See the difference? I'm interested in what you've to say, not in what you feel. For example, RDiaz had the wrong definition of a Paddock coat in mind, then I explained to him what a Paddock coat really is and, while he still doesn't like my example, he got interested on a possible future commission trying to adapt the idea to his physique and I also got interested on the idea. No feeling hurts, he still does not like it, I respect his opinion. 

I'm not interested in winning an discussion, which, considering my character, would only mean that I've already lost only by wanting to win; I'm interested in new ideas, rehearsing mine own would be to no good to myself. And let me state, again, that I do not like that outfit.

for me, that jacket is too formal for jeans.  Throw a pair of more casual wool pants perhaps...if you want to keep it casual add nice loafers?  Just me though, never been a huge fan of dressier jackets and jeans.  It either looks like 90's, or like a professor at a cocktail party.

thats a great jacket, truly great.  Been looking for something like it, preferably in camel hair.

Hey, but I still think it's a hard 3 button without the lower button and a slightly lower stance!
