^^^ Agreed.  I don't like checked shirts (other than gingham) but this looks great.

I mostly like it, DC, but I think I'd like it better without the tie.

Today was cold so I wore a tweed jacket and a long-hair hat for warmth.

What do you guys think of the lapel size and the cut?


EFV nailed it upthread: some nice details, but looks small on you esp. at the waist and probably the hips too (though the latter is difficult to be sure about until the waist fits better). Shoulders are built up, but they go rather well with your hat and general features if you're after a retro vibe... reminds me of some of those old b&w gangster movies. In fact - and there's precious few outfits that I say this with  - if you were to ditch the multicoloured shirt for a plain white buttondown shirt but with an ascot, I think this could be a quite fun look.

A little chilly and windy today. Sorry the wind makes the fit look a little off. (Vent is always closed at rest on this jacket)

Thoughts (Click to show)
I chose the jacket first. I really like the fit of it and the fabric is heavy and warm. I chose the pants next. I've worn this jacket with wool trousers before and I felt that the formality level was a little too different. Instead I chose cotton cords this time in a contrasting color. Next I chose the shirt. Given the earthy tones and texture of the jacket a light blue oxford seemed to be the best choice. I think that I'd like to get some spread collar shirts in rougher fabric, but for now this ocbd is the best I have. I chose the shoes and belt next. Previously I have worn this jacket with some dark brown bluchers. After switching to cords I wanted to try a boot instead and see how it looked. I think boots are more in line with the hacking jacket tradition anyways (though not necessarily in this style.) Finally I picked the tie. A dark muted knit seemed to complement everything perfectly.

After trying on a bunch of jackets today, I think I have decided this is my best fitting one. I am going to start looking out for this brand more closely, as fit is very important. I am slightly concerned about the shoulders, not sure if they seem a tad too big. I'd be curious what you guys think of the fit. Please keep in mind that the vent is closed at rest, the wind is simply blowing it open. In fact I feel this jacket has one of the best waist to hip ratios of any of my jackets for my build and is partially why I am so keen on the fit.

Comments and criticisms are welcomed.

Brother's birthday in London. Girlfriend helped with all the wrinkles, thankfully. Tie is brown with small yellow dots, but not shiny at all IRL.

Thanks for the tip. Although I abhor things involving the military, I can't say I am careful tucking my shirts. That is the only issue on going out sans belt - I do it rarely but will keep an eye on better tucking.
