Does that mean he wears his jackets the other way around? :lol: 

 

My father's two inches shorter, and slighter than me.  I have a sheepskin coat I wear of his, but it's a good inch too short in the sleeves and of course can't be let down.  I'll be visiting it in a couple of weeks, must remember to post a pic.  1970s pimp-tastic coat action, I promise you.

Hilarious!

Make sure nobody comes near you wearing a Henry Carter tie.

To say that is to say Christmas is just ... I really like how blazers ... I think I have a similar coat =)

I don't think that's left handed people who do that. You may be thinking of Australians.

 

Dad was never too much in to style. He was in to sports a bit though and I could never borrow his clubs, his glove, etc. any more than I'd have been able to borrow his sport jackets if he'd had any.

Everything seems a bit large: shoulders, sleeves, chest and waist. I would definitely try to size down and see how it looks (and feels).

Cold and misty weather in germany. So I need my bulletproofed Tweed coat

Nice stuff, Don - I'd take your scarf out of your coat, though, as it makes the chest too tight and pushes everything out of shape right to the shoulders.  Fantastic herringbone, that's a real beauty.

Given you are not wearing a suit under it, I would look at how it fits with a suit under.  That is, if that is how you plan to wear it, often.  It looks a touch big, but not very much.  Do you wear suits often?  Is it when wearing a suit that you most want to look spot on?  Give us a pic with a suit :)

This isn't what I'm wearing right now - so I'm cheating - this is a coat I have the chance to inherit if I wish, only I'm not sure about it. Its bespoke, was made in Dublin sometime in the early 80s I would say, cashmere with an silk inside lining. Its in incredible condition, like it was brand new.

 

The fit seems OK (sleeves are a little short) but overall I'm not sure if I'm in love with it or not - its as heavy as a mofo and I don't normally wear double-breasted anything. Plus the colour isn't as versatile I would say.

 

Opinions?

 

 

 

(sorry the pictures aren't brilliant)

Yes, it's completely wrong for you but you may send it to me.  I will pay the postage.

Thank you.

 

IL Lanificio (Cerruti), but definitely inspired by Marinella.

There is nothing better than a burgundy tie to pair with a blue, pinstripe suit. What a classic look! The dots on the tie add a little fun to the overall look without disturbing the classic, conservative theme.

OK, so *this* is what I'm wearing today - picked up this new green tie the other day, has nice texture but not sure if the texture is too samey with the suit... or if it clashes somewhat...
