No they are sort of medium grey, they just look charcoal in that picture.

Have you ever been able to size down from a 46L? I'm also a 44L and recently found a 46L Samuelsohn SC for 40% of retail that fit for length and sleeves. If the shoulders weren't absolutely perfect they were very close. The jacket is being slimmed through the body and I can pick it up in a week. I've been told that Sameulsohn is a good brand when it comes to alterations but I dunno as the guy who told me that was a salesman.


In reality I'm probably a 43L (in-between 42L and 44L) so 46L would in all likelihood be too large for me regardless of cut and model. I have a JP Tilford (which I believe is made by Samuelsohn) jacket in 44L that is also just about perfect in the shoulders but that also could use some slimming across the waist.

Clausewitz was a vulgar fool. Besides, we weren't talking about war either.

Thanks CP!

 

I really like that tie, just wish it was a little bit wider. It's an pre-sf acquisition, didn't know better back then ;)

Coxsackie - i dont hate the watch. dont love it, but certainly dont hate it either. but in the pic it looked two tone, gold bezel and steel case/bracelet. that might be part of the issue. either way, anything branded is bound to get hate here.

The only shot that came out of this morning's scarf wearing was this one.

 

 

The outfit underneath the coat and scarf is this

 

 

 

Zegna suit, shirt, shoes. PRL tie. Wang in the pocket. No shave November on the face.

Overall correct. I miss a bit of shirt cuff on your left wrist.

But it's a bit boring. Monochromatic and risk-free choice IMHO.

Too many stripes patterns together. Too much B&W.

I'd try to show up some more of that pocket square.

Double breasted jackets look better slim fitted, assuming your body shape can take it.

Just my opinion.

I do feel though, that certain designs acquire a kind of vulgarity-by-association which is not necessarily intrinsic to their appearance. I knew when I bought this watch that it would offend many because of its bezel. OTOH there are certain limited-edition Royal Oak Offshores which simply scream poor taste, and yet people are selling their grandmothers into slavery in order to move up the waiting list for them.

 

 

Very fair points all.  Considering the laughably modest apparatus on my wrist, perhaps I'm in no position to comment.  Your erudite and excellent explanation of your watch's pedigree certainly set me straight!  Genta design...column wheel chrono...awesome.  Anyway, no offence intended: at the end of the day, this thread is all about off the cuff subjective opinions.  Mine, in this case, is based on the simple reductive dislike of anything with a prominent brand name.  That's why I dislike the Bulgari bezel, no more or less really.  By the way, I like the RO, but agree entirely about the garish and tacky Offshore variants in their interminable special editions.

 

For more considered (and informed!) discussion of such things, you should visit The Watch Appreciation Thread.  It's by far the best discussion I've seen on this forum, or any, and would definitely welcome a man of your calibre, to dilute the parvenus and wannabes like me. :)

 

 

Noodles: I am thinking Butch might be right (as he usually is) that you might use a little less waist suppression to make your lapels sit more naturally.  Also, bigger spread on the collar, and in this instance either a stronger tie (burgundy?) or PS.  Or both.  But I like it: blue shirt is warmer, and on its own I rather like the tie.  Edit: Clags is right; a pattern somewhere: even just a pin dot tie if you want to stay super-conservative.

New tie that me like a lot. This is one of those borderline cases where it might or might be more of a "suit tie" to some people. Anyway, I think it works with a SC - just not perfectly with the one I am wearing today, the scales of tie and jacket came out a little too close for my taste. Hopefully the colour contrast is great enough to alleviate that problem to some extent....

The combination works. I like it.

I would have chosen a waistcoat/vest over the cardigan, but it's just a personal preference to avoid showing cardigan's sleeves.

I agree that there are a lot of stripes, but I personally don't think they are fighting.

No B&W, though. navy and white, yes. Navy is very hard to photograph though.

My pose might make you think this suit is full-fitting (although, again, I dont see it), but here are some other photos of the same suit, which shows that it cant be much slimmer.
