Best of luck. We look forward to seeing the results.

I do think those trousers are a shade too dark. A gray in the same shade as the green in the coat would probably sing, or light tan moleskins. Square/tie/shirt/jacket is great -- unistripe oxford, perhaps? The jacket is very Vox.

 

 

Thanks, YRR. I was thinking that maybe olive trousers would have worked well if I switched up the socks & tie. Care to expand on the bolded portion?

Thanks for the information.  That's very useful.  I've ordered one of these LED bulbs from Amazon, though it's not arrived yet:

We'll see.

I'm a long time reader of this thread and have only posted a couple of crappy indoor pics in the past. Here are my first decent contributions (photo quality wise) to the thread.

Why, thank you.

 

If I ever make it back to Dublin I’m buying you a pint at the Gravediggers ...

A thousand thanks.  Very kind of you.  The tie is from Ike Behar.  I've got a few by him, and they all knot very nicely, if largely (since they're *very* heavy).

 

Cheers,

Very cold today.  A lot of snow still on the ground.  I wore a cardigan for extra warmth and wore it instead of my jacket for most of the day.  The vest is new from eBay.  I thought it was brown when I bought it, but it appears to be a greenish brown.  Or maybe it's just the lighting.  I got this jacket back from the tailor.  The sleeves are a much better length now.

Sportcoat fit is nice. The vest/cardigan thing is not doing it for me. Maybe it's because I'm used to seeing corduroy on top of wool as opposed to the other way around

This is very nice, but I have two quick thoughts: 1) the sleeves on the jacket could be let down a touch; and 2) the quarters on the jacket seem rather open, not sure if that is your preference.

 

Great job overall!

John Doe, are those 3 inch cuffs on your trousers?

Very nice item to find at the back of the wardrobe! If there's enough material, I'd consider adding turn-ups; I think that heavy-fabric 3pc suits benefit from the visual heft of turn-ups to balance out all that chunk cloth up top.

Fantastic sport coat, CD. Looks to fit very well.

 

It's interesting. I agree that it appears to fit very well. However, despite that, I don't actually find it a flattering fit for his build as it appears to make him look hip-heavy. I know SF trends away from a more built-up shoulder - and I don't even know whether this one is padded or not - but I do think a slightly wider and more structured shoulder might balance things out more. More closed fronts and a (slightly) lower buttoning point creating a longer lapel line would also help in this regard. YMMV, based on how you want garments to look.
