Corneliani wool/cashmere. Navy, Flannel-like structure in a fishbone pattern (very subtle).
Fits like a glove IMHO. As good as it gets with RTW. And yes it covers my bottom.
Finally I have my perfect blue blazer! I am happier than the photo might suggest.

I got it here. Very fast shipping. Left Italy yesterday and I took delivery this morning. Thank you UPS. One IT48 and two IT50 left.




This is an excellent fit Anden, straight out of the box? Well done!

(p.s. hope you get the BB gun this Christmas!)

Very nice. The title says "wool cashmere" but in the description they say:

 

Composition: : 94%Virgin wool, 6%Polyamide fiber (nylon)

 

Would you mind, when you have some free time, checking the composition?

Cheers. It´s 94% wool 6% cashmere.

Thank you.Straight of the box yes. I took the picture five minutes after unboxing.

 

BB gun? Please elaborate. I´m Swedish...

Being the lovely and caring husband that I am, I gave my wife a micro 4/3 digital camera for her thirtieth birthday. That I am the only one using it and mainly for taking selfies to show other guys on the internets is completely beside the point.....

Thanks again for all the thumbs from yesterday! Today:

As always, your color/fabric/pattern combination is superb. But, here, that wonderful tie is the star of the show.

I can only agree, this is probably my most prized tie that I have in my possession - "soft as butter" cashmere from Vanda. I managed to snag one of the last remaining last year and Gerald and Diana even made it for me in an extra-long version. nod[1].gif

Looks great! Is it I.D or mainline. I have one corneliani jacket that I ordered online and perhaps should have gone 48 instead of 50. I feel the arm holes are quite low. It's hard to tell if this is just a by product of the too big size however and the photos on that sellers listings are not very helpful in relation to cut as the models rarely seem to be wearing the right size.

Do you find the arm holes a problem?

I believe it´s mainline. Can´t find anything that says anything else.

The armhole is similar to the Raffaele Caruso and Isaia that I have hanging in the office.

Hey RTC, I think your decisions in terms of colours and pattern matching are improving. Go on and try to find some good deals, in particular something that fits you well (don't just rely on the size when you buy/thrift, because your size may vary depending on the maker). You seem skinny, so learn what the "drop" is and try to find the correct one for you. (Most of your SCs, from what I've seen, are way too large at the waist, creating a bad silhouette)

 

Also, don't be afraid to spend some money at a tailor. I used to be reluctant as well, but a good tailor can make a suit/SC look like it's worth 10x its real price, just by improving the fit.

 

Thanks! I'm drawn to bright/shiny things so toning it down a bit is hard, but I think that there will be a resurgence of this once I get the fit right. The way I see it, the color attracts attention. If fit is suspect then your eye will go from the bright thing to the fit being off. I'll keep it in mind.

I'm actually making friends with a local seamstress. She seems pretty good and currently has 2 of my tweed jackets as well as 2 of my trousers. Her prices are very reasonable and she is intent on my getting what I want. I think I have a few decent sack jackets (the BB 346's and one Jcrew) that I will take to her for some waist suppression. Is that possible on a a sack style SC?


Also, I'm 5'10 and about 155-160 lbs. I've started going to the gym again (after earlier injuries) and now all the SC's I bought 6 months ago are starting to get tight on the shoulders and back!

Anyway, this is me today:

 

 

Atkinson's wool tie with silk vintage PS. And spread collar. ;-)

 

Thanks! I think I can see what you mean. I have a few of those that I tend not to wear that often. I'll put them back into the rotation and keep an eye out for shirts with collar stays instead of buttons as I keep hunting.

Also, if anyone here is a size 46, then click this:

I found a 46R tweed hunting jacket if you're interested in that sort of thing. It's got elbow patches as well as a chest protector and throat latch. If you're that size and are looking for something like that, then let me know.

I put this in a spoiler because I didn't want to take away from the thread.

Closing button is much too high and the jacket needs at least 2'' more length.

 

As I promised the new Drake´s grenadine under daylight conditions:

Don, really nice fit but as for the jacket needed 2" MORE in length, I don't see it. Your finger tips are almost at the tip of the jacket when they are straight. As it stands now you could not curl your fingers comfortably around the bottom of the jacket which I believe was the standard for assessing if a jacket is too long or too short. I think you have it just right.

 

Think:

Pretty sure DC's comments were aimed at Django's fit.
