O/O, I really like everything you have going on there. Nice.
Aportny, every time I see your fits, it makes me want to fly to wherever Despos is...Chicago?
Really splendid stitchy. I'm not entirely sure why (maybe slightly more ease in the leg, plus a fraction less taper, and more a closed jacket at the fronts?) but I find the proportions of this suit to be one of the most flattering you've shown us. Also, the shoes complement it perfectly. I really like the suit, though. Is it the same model as any of your other suits or a different cut?
(if the same, I wonder if it might simply be a case of a heavier fabric and/or the pattern that's creating that optical effect?)
All my hanks are from ebay, where you can find quite nice vintage stuff for usually about $15. I don't own any Drakes, Vanda, and certainly not Rubinacci. Someday, perhaps but at this point, it seems like investing in a few quality ties every year is a better way to build up a wardrobe.
Still, the drakes are great. I liked this design, whimsical, nice color scheme (various examples of this print, hope they bring it back).
I think this one is SB's:
Mr Porter also had a lighter blue version of this one I thought would be versatile
Kent Wang's look nice, but 12x12 is definitely too small. Hard to keep from falling into the pocket.
