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.

Great job overall!




Thank you!

Thanks.  I wore the outfit with that in mind, but I think I can do better.  I was eager to wear the vest because it was new, but it's a bit matchy with the pants.  I'll try to cook something else up.

I agree that a lower buttoning point might improve it, but that is a stylistic issue rather than a fit issue I think. A stronger shoulder or perhaps less flaring hips (if that is the case) might also improve it, but it might also be a photographic effect.
Regardless, I love the fabric.

Ac2, I like that suit, but I think that the jacket/vest are too long for you. Could be the pictures of course, but it looks like you are a regular wearing a long.

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

Mixing light sources wrecks havoc on most photos, and makes it almost impossible to adjust colour balance. It's better to stick to a single (type of) light source and adjust colour balance afterwards (if the camera can't do it for you). Just my .02.......

AAS,

Looking good. Who does the shoes? They look to be suede, how do they hold up in the wet/snow?

Apologies for the grainy photo, but I managed to get some good lighting on my shoe polish job.

Surprised no one has commented in the sleeve length here. Both shirt and coat appear around an inch too long. I like what you're trying to do but it's all a bit beigey mcbeige to me. It needs some colour somewhere, prob in the shirt to balance it all out.

Thanks for the thumbs yesterday, and now, to paraphrase Monthy Python, for something completely different.....
