@sugarbutch LOL! :lol:

I like this jacket, but have a hard time wearing it because it's so light.  I think a different tie and pocket square could have been better, but I like the jacket, vest, shirt, combo.

That's a tough jacket to work into a fall/winter fit, AAS. I think you're doing about as well as could be expected, but I'm not sure it's a piece to lean on.

AAS, PRL boots?

and I disagree with @YRR92
 about it being too snug (but agree with you that it might be a hair too short). I think the tie sort of throws things off. You have these rustic earth tones everywhere else, and then a pink tie right in the middle. I think something in brown/green/red or even burnt orange or rust might have worked better. Just a thought.

Thanks, CD, and to everyone for their helpful feedback.
If I'm honest, I want to love this jacket, but I think I don't. I've started numerous outfits and ended up swapping out at the last minute. Here again, it's hard to say that navy wouldn't have been better.
The tie is a warmer, slightly tauper shade of coral than pink, so I actually think it went a bit better IRL with the jacket, but here again I will confess dissatisfaction. I tried green knit wool but rejected it as too monochromatic. Similarly red.
and the fit: Shoulders are too wide even for me and I could use an extra half inch at the pit and button point.

Happy to make it available to any size 41 tweed lovers out there.

I think it would also be better for purely aesthetic reasons as in this fit it almost looks like you are trying to match your shoes to your tie (although this might be just a unintended outcome of the way the colours turned out in the photo) - both elements are very nice individually BTW, and the suit is just

No surprise at all. smile.gif

Fit is awesome and yes the tie and shoes were intended to play off each other. I love it so hard.

Really? That SC looks very wintery to me.

(White = snow) + (Fuzzy speckles = warm) = F/W SC

Also, post of the day with that PS joak.

Professor Monkey is right that the default is still black shoes with a navy suit.  I recall a great deal of news print when the England squad for the World Cup wore tan shoes with navy suits in an Italian-inspired ensemble...David Beckham henceforth led a GQ revolution.  But that's still rather what it is: something of a fashion statement.  

 

Not that I see anything wrong with it, and I'm wearing darker tan shoes with a navy suit today.  I think as Dr Holdfast said, it draws attention away from the face, which might be an advantage Stitchy and I have already considered!  Anyway, it's definitely not wrong in my book.  Just a lot more casual: contrasting shoes is more or less the same as going with an odd jacket, I think.

 

AAS, I actually like that.  But not the shirt - I'd say a plain one, and then a more colourful tie.  The PS is fine and a good contrast choice with the tie, and I like the jacket a lot.

 

Noodles, your "issues" are bubbling over again...

I think that's pretty much right on, the navy suit/black shoes combo has always seemed more formal to me--not in the least because the focus remains on the suit itself.

Warmer today, winter is over...which is a pain as I haven't yet collected two new flannel suits and one tweed that I suspect won't be very wearable until December now!  Today is two thirds of a linen suit...wasn't in the three piece mood as I've some running around to do:

no. the default with a navy suit is not black shoes. at least not universally. and anyone who says that there is anything wrong with brown shoes and a navy suit is a moron. its classic italian look. its just (apparently) not very british.

as i understand it, HF was more remarking on the particularly light shade of brown, or rather chestnut, that i was wearing with a navy suit. im pretty certain that that is also a rather acceptable italian combo, and some love it and some hate it, as its jarring nature is not really deniable.
post #70080 of 78717

I think that's what I said, isn't it?  It's a traditional UK default, the contrast is more Italian.  Yes.  As embraced by me also today. :)

 

Are you in a bad mood because you can't buy that suit from Spoo?  And why are you up so late?
