@gringodaddy I like the Jacket!

 

@upr_crust Very well put together as always.  I really like the suit.

Thank you. Inaugural wearing, hasn't gone to the tailor yet, but fit seems mostly ok, maybe sleeves.

Very nice, what kind of shoes are your wearing? What's the difference between 1920s morning dress and current morning dress?

Another ovation for Crusty. What a way to end the year!

Church's Cap-toe shoes.

Not a great degree of difference. A lower rise and a lower gorge with longer tails today. The trendy morning dress that has been in vogue for the last 2 -3 years has a very low rise with slim treading on tapered trousers, notably longer coat tails, soft padded shoulders (Not as sloped or soft as the 20's) no belly to the peak lapel now, and a lower buttoning stance. It won't last long, soon the classic/traditional "Morning Dress proportions will come back. The 30's Morning Dress has quite different proportions then mentioned, and is also a very classic/elegant look, possibly the most timeless..

Thanks, it's very interesting to see how even the most 'classic and timeless' outfits are subject to fashion.

Nice to be back posting again. Something casual from before I went away for Christmas, and something a bit wilder for today:

BTW your brown SC would go great with a sky blue shirt IMO, love that combo


Thanks. I would aim more for a simple stripe like a BB #3 than a pure solid. A similar bar stripe in wool challis would also be great.

 

That coat looks wonderful with a light blue shirt. It also works well (when I'm feeling bold) with a white shirt and a black knit tie.

 

Holdfast, normally I wouldn't like that tie or square on their own, much less with a sportcoat, but that works remarkably well. Also, that's an especially nice-looking coat. Is it similar to the kind of cut you usually wear, or is there something a bit different about it?

A little bit of wackiness for New Year's Eve is no bad thing; Happy New Year all!

 

As for the jacket, it's one of my Ede ones, though a handful of years old now. It's fairly similar to my more recent ones though; no really major differences (perhaps a fraction longer than them, maybe).
