Beautiful fabric, beautiful lapel.
Been a lot of sweet three-pieces lately, which is more than fine with me.
It's a somewhat old suit and therefore a little loose for my taste. (used to be a bit larger )
But I'm afraid having it altered would throw off the proportions. Happened to me with another older suit that I wanted to have slimmed down a bit.
I'm thankful for any tips regarding this issue?
(I opted against the tie bar as you can see in the second pic)
To my eye it looks nice. It may be a hair too short but that could just be me.
My unsolicited opinion -
1) I think the tie and shirt are too close in color and blend together too much.
2) The color of the corduroy SC isn't my favorite, chalk that up to a matter of personal preference, but I do think the casual nature of the corduroy jacket (especially in that color) is at odds with the french cuffs. I never wear FC unless I'm wearing a suit, I know some people (SugarButch for example) feel differently.
3) Nice boots!
Pliny, you may have my favorite collection of ties of anyone who regularly posts here.
Overcoat is a beauty, TC.
Very nice, GMMcl, especially the jacket. Maybe a hair too much waste suppression if I am nit picking, but no one in the real world would ever notice, so I'll shut up.
Casual Friday for me, but I am sporting these new (to me) Alden chukkas:
Nice jacket. Is that a wallet in your pants or are you just happy to see us? But for real, the wallet/phone in the front pocket is not a good look.
Beautiful texture and color. Good job, Don.
Spectacular. I love the color combo up top.
Thanks. It's 100% new wool. I just got it so I haven't had a chance to get it dirty yet, but a better question is what are you doing to get your jackets so dirty? All my jackets stay relatively clean.
