I would get rid of the hat though.
Just my $.02

Thanks for the reply. I feel you on the sleeves, it's something that I will fix later.

As for the hat, it was cold outside and I wear my hair pretty short so I thought it might be alright to wear outside.

Really clap?  .. really?  I've not had any other horn buttons break.,  + broken at dispatch is not  a button problem, its QC.

You're really putting it out there lately DC.  This is a bridge too far tho IMO - 2 houndstooths.

re: length -  patchy = casual, so the shorter length is fine IMO CD.  go great sans tie with say grey flannels + cordo bluchers.

beautiful jacket

I got it a couple of years ago and had it altered accordingly, only thing i wrestle with is the width of lapels. Also, interestingly the tickets came with it, stashed in the breast pocket. Nice bit of provenance.

What a nice paisley tie too.  They're hard to pull off IMO, but the subdued mix of colors is :satisfied:

My uneducated opinion is the second is more pleasing to the eye.

post #67344 of 78724
I concur
post #67345 of 78724

thanks guys-  yeah agree.  i think too much blue in 1-  square 2 gives it more balance

post #67346 of 78724

Pliny -- white linen would be great with that. The light blue repeats too much, the victory or whatever is a bit much.

 

circumspice -- I guess. I mean, shirt collars do that when you take a jacket off and put it back on carelessly.

 

Here's today. I promise I picked this ascot up from a forum member (capnwes :slayer:) before I caught American Hustle. With gray flannels and dark brown chelsea boots.

Challenge thread is up. I'll also be posting this in a couple of other of the busier AV threads through the next 24 hours (to avoid bumping every AV thread at once).

 

http://www.styleforum.net/t/374501/friday-challenge-01-06-2014-sf-family-values

 

 

 

 

Y'ALL'D BEST PARTICIPATE.

 

(also, gonna message Synth about running a concurrent challenge on SW&D)

post #67349 of 78724

First, that there roks IMO.  nice deployment of the ascot, and the pink BD is perfect for that awsm jacket.

 

 

re: white linen.  there's no rule AFAIK that white linen doesn't go with loud SCs, but it don't seem rite to me.  Navy blazers, sure; but with a gun club, it just seems to offend the country/city convention.  Manton okays it in another thread tho, so IDK

you're not wrong

post #67350 of 78724

Thanks, Pliny.
 

I normally have a little resistance to white linen with countryish jackets, but there are a few reasons I'd like it with that coat.

 

1. The shirt has some white in it.

2. The coat has some white in it.

3. The textures look like they would play nicely together.

4. The tie is pretty densely patterned as it is. I think the second square, which is lovely, would be great with a simple repp or a knit.

 

That's not really what I'd call a loud jacket, actually. It probably resolves to a light gray from even a moderate distance.
