coat is not Suitsupply, thought. It's Lardini. Also, the perspective of the photo gives an impression of an overly high gorge.

no worries & I understand your point completely.
Personally, I like a too high gorge more than a too low one.

...and I am of exactly the opposite opinion. Maybe it has something to do with our respective heights? smile.gif

Timo is your suit Suitsupply? Nice looking POW but can't see it on their e site u less its the Havana which is really hard to see the pattern on in their pics.

I'm in the middle height-wise, and gorge-wise!  Nice coat, Timo.

 

Pingson, that is simply beautiful.  I almost said "perfection", but I find striped shirts a touch "city", and the collar is escaping.  But as it resolves to light blue in most of the pics and everything else is just so flawless, I'll stop being a dick.  You, my friend, are consistently Classic Menswear personified, IMHO.  The roped shoulders suit you well, too.

You guys are awful.
I wore chino's to work today because I'm going to be traveling a fair amount. I feel like a hack. I saw myself in the mirror and I couldn't look for more than a second.


Awful influence you lot.

 

I mean it in the best possible way!

Look on the bright side.  A lesser man might have worn jeans. :)

Those are in my suitcase along with a flannel shirt.

 

:embar: 

 

I did wear this though! PRL tie and shirt.

 

And my tweed blazer is packed as well :)

 

How do you guys get folds out of ties? Do you iron them with a towel between the iron and tie?

post #65352 of 78717

They make an excellent suitcase lining to protect your shoes from scuffs, and can in extremis, even be used as improvised clothing of sorts - should you have an unexpected need to drive an earth-moving vehicle, or hammer in some railways spikes.  No harm in being prepared.  Or in a flannel shirt for down-time. :)

(Except the bit about Stitchy, which is funny and true)

It needs swelled edges.

post #65355 of 78717

I would never have thought of that, I suppose because when I think of swollen seams I think of heavier, more country-fied and textured cloths, and single-breasted.  But in retrospect, it might have been quite interesting to try as a further softening of the look.  Too late for this one, but an idea for something else I have in the pipe.  Thank you for the thought.
