HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4330  

post #64936 of 78721

New Oxxford clothes sports coat. Unfortunately without a cloth label, but I think it must be "super worsted". I let out 2-3 cm at the chest and the  waist.

aportnoy, very nice, and it's nice that you started showing us some shoe pics. you are the shoe fairy after all!

DC, I'm afraid it still looks too small in the chest. The lapels are noticeably bowing.

That Oxxford jacket, the lapel and collar seems to be turning up? Something seen on cheap fused garments

Sports coat is at the tailor and she lets 4 cm out. So after that the coat should fit very well and if not I can give additional 3-4 cm in the middle seam.

Did you every had an Oxxford clothes sports coat in your hands? That coat I get yesterday in a 40 x 25 x 10 cm large box from the USA. I freshed and steamed it in my pret-a-porter and it seems I had to ironing the clollar and lapel a little bit. You can be sure the coat is fully canvassed.

I wasn't questioning whether it was fully canvassed, I was just saying that it has the problems you find on cheaper suits, mentioning the fusing is actually nothing to do with it. On the lapel and collar ends there should be fullness from top cloth to bottom, otherwise the ends will pull away from the body of the jacket rather than sit tight, that appears to be happening with your coat. Whether this is the construction or ironing I'm not sure

I am digging the DB Mimo. The palm trees make me jealous.

Pics a bit duller today, I'm not in my usual location. 

 

 

Today's tie has a bit more texture. It is Canali. Shirt is Dalvey. PS is plain silk borrowed from my dad so its bound to be from the 80s! :)

 

 

Sometimes you just gotta wear plain black shoes.

Plus one to the love for andens jacket.

+1 to the magnificence of Anden's jacket and Aportnoy/Pliny's shoes: would be perfect together, too.

The interesting thing about this fit is that both the shirt and the suit had their maker tags removed when I found them, so I don't know who made them, but they are extremely high quality.
Tie is Tom Ford. Socks are Pantherella and the shoes are Bally. Overcoat is vintage Brooks. Square and belt are unremarkable/unknown.

Blues. Or as close to blue as taking photos in the dark will allow...

Wazzup~

I have the same Tom Ford tie and it's been pointed out to me and I now see that it would go better with a pale blue shirt, which I believe you've tried already. Below is an old post of mine. Cheers!
