Very nice, I've wondered for a while if I could get away with that type of collar and tie... maybe I should try.

I thrifted the jacket from our own Dirnelli. It is bespoke by French tailors Cifonell and judging from the marking inside it was made in December 1984 - I find it pretty awesome to wear a jacket that it almost 30 years old.

Looks pretty sharp, length is good, sleeves too...you could get it taken in at the waist a bit if you wanted it more clingy, but it certainly doesn't need it.

I say leave it as is and wear with pride.

Love the jacket. Love the tie (wool, right?).
Not sure I'm loving them together, for some reason....

Yes it was below freezing this morning. And yes I wore linen. That's what overcoats are for.

Thanks for the comments. The tie is actually silk, from Turnbull & Asser

Retied-tie.



It doesn't matter what knot you use, that tie is hideous............sorry to pile on. Think of the gift this way, if someone seriously bought you a pink bunny rabbit suit, would you actually wear it in public just to be nice?
