Looking good!

 



Wouldn't mid-gray just blend in with the jacket? I'm assuming Stiches' coat is more odd jacket in person than in pics, but I feel like it could come off as two parts of two different suits. 



 



BTW - your tweed suit is fantastic.



 



Stitches - I don't think that jacket looks big at all. Very nice.

I actually thought starting with medium to dark grey pants would make things easy, but I kept running into a city/country problem that I'm not sure was remedied. Might try dark brown pants tomorrow.



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

My home office has a combination of the two so I'm hoping it will look ok.

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.

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!
