HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4380

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?

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

Thank you.

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...

First of all, nice tie! I think the suit - tie combo is fine, on the other hand I think the shirt doesn't work well with this outfit.

^^ Exactly what my first thought was.  Everything's good, but a gingham check is so summery behind that muted, textured tie.  I think a solid light blue, even white, or just a much smaller check or micro-stripe if you like, would fly better.  Also, a PS with some reds/burgundies in it would set it all alight.
