I really like this outfit, but when you wear this jacket, the grain/bias of the fabric (indicated by the red lines) always seems strange:


What up with that? (Click to show)


Thanks! The wales are intentionally cut that way, I guess because some designer thought it was clever. The wales on the body actually line up when my arm isn't extended to take the picture.

It's among the oldest pieces in my closet (I discovered yesterday after my phone fell out that I'd worn a hole through not just the pocket bag, but the lining of the jacket), so it may be replaced sometime soon. Until then, I embrace it's quirkiness.

Pingson, I'm sure you did already in the past, I would be entirely grateful if you could give me the deets on the maker/fabric of that coat. And as a bleeding noob, what's this kind of weave called?

Mostly I find, or create, the events.  Next one I have on the calendar now, however, is March 1st.

Sure, the jacket is thrifted form fellow SF:er Dirnelli. It's originally bespoke from Parisian tailors Cifonelli. It's made up in a classic Donegal tweed. Donegal is easily identified by the flecks of colour that are woven into the cloth against the base colour (fawn in this case) which gives a very interesting depth to the cloth.

Dirnelli is our size, Pingson? You think he'll let go of a couple CdL and Smalto coats for me? I promise to provide them with a  good home.

Well apparently he was until dropping some 20 kilo in weight. I don't think he's as tall as you or me but that Cifonelli SC was spot on for me. I talked to him about other things he was selling and he had a fair number if things that would fit a 54L. PM him and see if he's got stuff left...

Found some thrift store gold today.  It was unseasonably warm.  It's suppose to be even warmer tomorrow.  

What I thrifted today. (Click to show)
I got this for $60.  It's 100% pure new wool.  No brand tags or labels, but the size was labeled as 38.  I might have the waist let out some.  The sleeves are a little short, but I'm not sure that I mind that much.

Thanks a lot! I severely doubt the tailors over here are capable of such art work. Wear in good health, always.
(and shame I'm a 40/50L...)

AAS, that is some thrift platinum. How much did you score it for and who made it? Fit is great on you.

I could never wear any of your fits, but just wanted to say, I love how you roll. I could never pull it off, but that's probably why I appreciate it so much. Even the fits you post that make me say WTF!?, I dig it.
