It's what we do. There wouldn't be an America in the first place, otherwise.

Must be at least forty years old, but after some alterations and a thorough dry-cleaning, they look brand new.

 

Jackets were made in Melbourne (I think), fully bespoke, mostly hand-stitched. Check out the pick-stitching on the lapels (look inside the spoiler) - it's insane.

 

I fixed the PS a bit for the second photo. The other jacket is a brown hounds-tooth, will post separately.

It's nice, when vintage'esque stuff is being mass produced, to see actual real vintage stuff and be reminded that 'classic' looks are called that for a reason.

Is this the Midnight Blue Repp Silk? Whatever it is, I want this tie in Midnight Blue, Burgundy, Dark Green and maybe Black.

A strong contender for my favourite tie ever, from Yellow Hook.  Pimp-tastic PS from P.Imperial.

That was my next guess. Either way, I want one (and by one I mean four).

I saw James Bond yesterday, rocking a mid-grey suit - white shirt - black tie - flat white PS outfit, and decided to give it a try, in a more Italian way: 3 roll 2 suit and, since I believe solid black ties should be reserved for ceremonies, I went for a dark charcoal tie with white stripes. (One of the very few striped ties that I have by the way, I guess the total is 2 or 3) I finally added some colour with the red lapel pin and a pink dotted PS.

Extremely tasteful self stripe.  The width of the stripes actually makes them more sedate.  Quite elegant.

Splendid attention to details--right down to the subtle polka dots on the pocket square. Excellent! Who made this shirt? It has a great looking collar.

AAS. You´ve convinced me to get more cardigans to wear with my SC:s

I've run out of three-piece suits for now, so back to tweeds and flannels......

Going to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow for a few days. 95% pleasure, but I am packing some lightweights (linen and summer weight wool) for the other 5%.

I believe it was an older post. I am unable to find it myself now.

I posted it under that page but it has landed at the last one.

I think I will take some time to orientate with the forum :)
