 54L? I never would've guessed that you guys were that big!

 

 BTW- Pingson and Claghorn have been my favorite posters for the past month or so! :slayer:

I think the sheen is more non-SF than non-CBD.

I think they might be talking in Italian sizing?

Love that suit, Crusty, and Clags that's a lovely tie.  Great fits, both.

And if that tie isn't CBD, I do not know what is.

 

Thanks Mr D, I'm humbled!  I get all my suits made as three piece, but not all are wearable in the extreme heat here.  This one's new, and it's pretty cool the last couple of days.  Also although it's a simple worsted wool, it's pretty light and I had it half lined at the back to compensate.  The wool ones like this I probably won't wear without the waistcoat, so have no belt loops and buttons for braces.  The linen one I had made before it is also a three piece, but with belt loops instead for sensible two-piecing when it's 50C.

 

So this and its future sisters from another tailor, will all be as "average day" as the climate will allow.  I certainly love to wear a suit in its complete glory.  Sports jackets are great, but for a me a real suit has three pieces, and the lesser formality of linen and the like can be either; Today meeting some bigshots I wanted to look the part though.  Thanks again!

If only that were all, Junior.  This and one sports jacket were an experiment with a new "tailor" who's really more like MTM, and not big on details.  I like the lapels, but yeah, that was one of a few small irritations.  The rest of the new stuff continues with someone else.  I shall seek my redemption from a higher power, though.  ;)

Funny, I've always felt rather the opposite.  Those lovely soft madders and challises always strike me as just a little bit more rural, and the more lustrous neats very "city banker". Still, the former are inherently prettier, I can't deny.  I just wanted something a bit more "F.U." on this occasion (contract negotiation!).

That I would have to concede, affiliate vendor or not.  But we must remain free of SF-think from time to time, it's healthy. :tinfoil:

Can I use that line next time I post a fit?

post #67028 of 78717

At your own risk, my friend!

 

Incidentally, along with the great triumvirate of Crusty, Butch and CP, you have helped inspire me to experiment with a bow tie.  I thoroughly enjoyed wearing one with my dinner suit last week, and decided to re-evaluate the concept more generally.  A couple of cheap ones are on order for testing next month. Thank you for daring to differ.

post #67029 of 78717

Me? Surely you jest!

 

Next you'll concede that you got inspiration from AAS!

Did I not see you wearing a bow tie recently?

 

(And "Suited" - thank you too!)

post #67031 of 78717

What is the consensus on pocket squares matching bow ties?  My wife got me matching bow tie/pocket square (pictured below) but I couldn't muster the inclination to wear the bow tie today.

To be avoided...

I'm with SugarB

But please continue to wear those shoes in good health.

You did. I wear them often. I actually just bought a few more so they'll be making the rounds shortly. I do need more of a variety in them though. Most of my SF-approved ones are red...


I have some non-SF approved ones, but they're kinda big. I still wear them though!

There was a great post yesterday saying that basically said that PS and ties are accessories. As such, you don't want them to be the focus. It's best to have the tie and ps compliment something else, such as the shirt.

post #67035 of 78717

Just a little something...

 

Khaki blazer

Burgundy shirt

Navy tie

Burgundy/silver/black pocket square
