HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4486

Clags: Top comes off as orphaned suit jacket. Sorry.

DC: Suits suit you. Too often your odd-jacket combinations have too much going on or give off a costumey vibe. Just one man's opinion...

CP: Love the peaks and bow.

Slightly more interesting up close.

 

Tie is, oddly enough, Unipair's house brand, made somewhere in Italy. Wool silk blend, partially lined with hand-rolled edges.

Unipair (tie)

 

Link to tie? I couldn't find.

 

I like the look a lot, but I agree with @sugarbutch  on the orphaned suit jacket, though not sure why. Could it be the fabric?

Respectfully, I disagree. I like the coat. It is simple, clean, and sleek.

I completely agree. But I still say something about it looks a little orphaned. I'd sport that all day with that fit though.

 

Maybe it's the button color that makes it look slightly orphaned? But the patch pockets are redeeming.

After a bit of a long sermon in the pulpit. I went 20 minutes over time . . . oops

At least they had a nice suit to look at...Osteen's flock can't say that!

Whelp, it IS an orphaned suit jacket (in the sense that it has matching pants). But I think the patch pockets make it versatile enough to wear as an SC without raising too many eye brows. I had it made with this function in mind. The fabric could be a bit rougher, but it isn't super worsted (is "worsted" binary or can it be talked about in terms of extent?).

CP, that's got to be my favorite bow tie of yours.

You are right. But I just felt a bit casual today. This also explains the BD shirt and the cotton pants...

Not to pile on, but a button down shirt to me never looks right with a double-breasted jacket (a look that David Letterman fancied that still doesn't make it right).

I think they're saying that it looks orphaned because of the buttons as well, no?

I quite like it although I might be the patron saint of orphaned jackets.

Clags, perhaps there's a bit more texture than is apparent in the pictures. I'll take your word for it. More SC-style buttons might achieve the effect you're seeking.
post #67287 of 78717

Claghorn -- worsted is basically a binary thing, since it refers to a way of spinning the yarn. That might not be a super-smooth jacket, but a fairly smooth jacket with matching buttons and no pattern is going to look like an orphan.

 

 

Of course, I put this on this morning thinking it didn't look too orphaned, but now I'm not sure. Wore this with brown cords and tan brogues. Any thoughts are welcome.

Me and grandpa (96 y/o) rocking bow ties at a family dinner.

 

Sorry about the poor quality, my vest has a black watch pattern. Had a navy jacket but it got too warm. Doesn't he look awesome?

I had 3 horn buttons crack, too but Luxire was more than glad to send me replacements. In my opinion that's the trade off you agree to when choosing natural horn over synthetic polyester. There's no affordable NDT for buttons and sometimes one wash cycle is all it takes.

 

@EFV if you liked my trousers (aka the Clapents) you can specify order #5127 which goes as follows:

 

hand made bar tacks, pick stitching, coin pocket, split waistband, side metal adjusters, button fly with tab, rounded tab closure with two metal hooks, inside rayon lining to the knee, buttonable 5cm cuffs (not really recommend these with anything heavier than 10oz, though):

The buttons were originally brown horn, but I didn't like the way they look. I'll accept that it may come across as an orphan suit jacket (though not egregiously so with the patch pockets), but I'd rather that in minor form than to be unhappy with the aesthetics of it.

You might need to ask on the Unipair thread or message Unipair Guy. They carry a lot of ties (mostly Drakes and Breuer as well as their house brand), but it isn't something they emphasize in their web presence. That tie also comes in gray and navy as well as olive pindot and burgundy pindot.
