I'm not sure that example is a Jort / La Spalla as the pleated shoulder isn't obvious. Also the SS Jort is a three rolled to two not a straight two.

In Europe a few months ago a new Jort line was introduced:

(You may have to change the website to eg The Netherlands.)

The blue jacket is part of that collection.

That is a Jort. It's a newly released limited collection, with higher prices. I believe that jacket is €560, which is much more expensive than their regular jackets.

Ah OK, then it seems that the old Jort is now La Spalla and the new Jort is as pictured?

Either way that bright blue tweed is a nice twist.

First of all, sorry for the huge picture.

Is there anything it clashes with? Obviously, I didn't spot anything on that front. I suppose the blue in the square picks up on the blue shirt, but it's not a big thing.
 

I don't see any clashes!

I would have gone lighter if you had one though. I also think that the tie and the jacket look too similar in tone over there, but that might just be the image.


I like it, but was just being slightly critical!

I think they would work very well for that outfit. A really dark burgundy would also have been nice. But I prefer black here more; all the colours are either icy or steely blues, so black must mesh nicely.

Clags I really really like that sc!

Why not a richer yellow more saturated. What seems to me a bit discordant is the level of brightness of the yellow which against the dark brown and the deeper red/burgundy just draws all attention to the hank. Makes it less an accent than a centerpiece. I would actually go more saturated and even darker a tad. But I think in the yellow range was the right idea. Subdued gold? Certain shades of green would have worked IMO (again not bright...the drakes Navajos a few page back)

Agree about not needing to match. Complementing is good too paricularly with hanks.

That said I was going to say that Claghorn seems too blue on top, but I like the look. It settles nicely the more you look at it. Cool in a tonal way. Even though the PS Is blue the contrast in the pattern makes it an astute choice, IMO. And why shouldn't we feel a bit blue now and again. Nice look.
post #67198 of 75834
thanks for the likes yesterday, gents.

clags, smart move. i cant see that fit with brown shoes except for maybe a very dark chocolate suede.

I think upr_crust has the same tie. I just drove myself crazy trying to find this picture -- he paired it with a plain light green satin hank. The light green is actually a great idea -- it has the same relationship with the purple in the suit as the forest green in the tie has with the tie's purple. I'm not crazy about plain satin hanks, and I think the light green works because the suit here is lighter than my coat.

I do indeed have the same tie, and the light green PS works because it picks up the green from the tie, and because my suit was lighter than than your navy blazer, and wouldn't have been as great a contrast were you to have used the same PS with your jacket.

Incidentally since we've been talking about Drake's pocket squares and Sugar Butch's nice sand square, here are other colors in that pattern, at $39 at Barneys.

They have the green one too, and a few other pocket squares from this season.
