I am not 100% on the suede shoes with that fit, but I really admire the rest of the look.

This is a good pic but I think the jacket was made by the same tailor as who made one of Clags' patch pocket windowpane blazers. Come on tailors, how hard can it be to match patterns on a rectangle of cloth?

Apropos the Friday Challenge, but potentially of much broader interest …

 

Serendipitously, if anyone needs a last-minute blue addition to his wardrobe, Myhabit has a couple of sales going on with exactly that theme (I can't be sure if these links will work if you're not registered with Myhabit):

Totally off-topic, but I've always meant to ask someone American: what's the basis/rationalse for a semester system rather than having three terms? They always seem to start & finish at weird times of the year too; I mean, why have a term finish at the end of January, when you've only just had a Christmas break? Doesn't it make more intuitive sense to start a term in the New Year and then end in time for Easter break? And so on.

An excellent example of when an outfit makes much more sense in context of knowing a person's diary. I would have thought, "too formal", if this was just a daytime office look.

2 outfits that scream for black shoes IMO.

I initially felt that some kind of of pattern on the tie would be nice. But getting the scale of that hypothetical pattern right would be very challenging, given the scale of the gingham. So probably best as a solid. What fabric is the tie? The relatively casual suit & suit would meld beautifully with wool or cashmere!

 

BTW, returning to a topic you raised a few pages back, the trouser length on this suit is what I would consider perfect; a gentle/subtle break.

You'll need to register.  I can't see them anyway.

Something for the Friday navy-on-navy challenge theme, which inspired by Rudals self-professed limitations of preferring navy/navy looks and needing outfits that work in a very conservative office, but that he also wanted something a bit more interesting than all solids. This is a look that would sail through any conservative setting in the world, but perhaps especially so here in the UK where this kind of microcheck and old-school tie in rep fabric remain, if not common then at least comfortably familiar to most. The shirt sleeves are slightly long, but that's the only non-conservative aspect of the look.

There's a Carmina shop there with very nice staff. I wanted to take a look at Charvet, which everyone says is fun to visit, but couldn't make it.

The best art show that I saw, and it's still there until late February, is the Ron Mueck exhibition at the Cartier Foundation. There's sometimes a wait to get in, so be prepared. But it's awesome. I'll also second the upr_crust's rec of the Petit Palais. The Palais Tokyo was also interesting. I didn't love a lot of the pieces, but it's an interesting concept, and the "Concert Hall" was one of the coolest things I've seen recently.

Holdfast, i know that your are probably only donning this as a part of Stitchy's challenge, but from my point of view this is a lot sharper than your more "academic" outfits smile.gif well done

We think of it as starting the term in the new year (early January) and ending just in time for summer (unless you're from Harvard, poor saps)!:) A few schools (on the quarter system) are three terms.

 

I do remember Oxford fondly including the short terms. Spent a lovely year there though there were not many coffee shops at that time (plenty of pubs though).

 

Edit: And that last fit looked quite nice

The tie fabric is a thick wool from Suitsupply.

Regarding the trouser length, I agree. This is what I would prefer. On some trousers, SS is very stingy with material.

(1)  Not all colleges and universities follow a semester system, although you are right that a majority do.

 

(2)  Almost all pre-college public schools work by semesters, from Kindergarten through 12th grade.  For those ages, parental pressure has much to do with the timing and duration of vacations.  In fact, over time, it’s probably been the single most important factor in the evolution of the K-12 academic schedule.

 

(3)  Universities, especially public ones, are always under pressure from faculty to correlate their vacations with the vacations of the public schools which the faculty’s children attend.  Thus, (2) above influences, sometimes determinately, university academic calendars even though there's no official connection between the two school systems.

 

(4)  Concerning the correlation of the academic year with the calendar, you wrote:  “They always seem to start & finish at weird times of the year too.”  This is sometimes the case, sometimes not.  At my university the fall semester ends around December 15th and the spring semester begins around January 15th.

 

Obviously there’s a lot more to it than this in any individual case, but I hope this is of some help nonetheless.

 

Cheers,
