It's nice, and I liked the mixed cord fit too, but in what sense is it a 'suit'?  Were they sold together as a suit, was it three 3-pieces of the same fabric in different colours that you've mixed up yourself, are the herringbones indeed actually all the same fabric in different colours, or are they just different herringbone fabrics. If it's the last, then why isn't this just a an odd SC, waistcoat and trousers all in various herringbones?

Thanks.  I guess it's an odd suittm.  I made that up.  They're all by different makers but the same pattern.  I don't own any suits.  It's as close as I can get at the moment.

Oh the weather outside is frightful, so I busted out a more summmer-y color set.

I think it works, and yes, you should trademark the name! I have seen similar things done, but it's usually (in my limited experience) the waistcoat that's messed around with. For example, Rugged Museum in Tokyo (which probably does some of the best Ivy-inspired stuff around today and I think you would love the place) did a really nice camel cord jacket and pants this year, designed to be worn both together and separately, along with a vest in either the same camel or a dark brown or a 2-colour combination of the two (below). Usually, I'm not a fan of the 'crazy' jacket or waistcoat, but together, it worked very well. (Un)fortunately they all sold out very quickly, so I was saved having to explain to my wife why I had bought another suit...

AAS: that is you at your very best, my friend: taking a crazy idea, implementing it, then...stopping.  No need to add a loud tie, or silly shoes, or a Black Watch shirt or a feather boa.  Just a simple unorthodox idea speaking for itself.  You're a truly stylish guy when you do this.  I'm sure you don't care too much what I think, but being deliberately eccentric can cross that line between individual and self-consciously foolish - and I mention it because I'm sure I like many of us cross that line from time to time!  But when you have that tiny bit of restraint on top of a truly different concept, you hit that sweet spot better than most.  *applause*

 

Donuts, that's a great example of the brown shoes and "lighter" suit look I think I was getting at a couple of pages back.  The tie and shirt complement the less formal shoes perfectly.  Nice.

 

Also, by coincidence, a package arrived today to remind me why Shaya "Exquisite" Green is my favourite Joo and Stitchy and his complicated love is only second:

Thank you! The overcoat is from Suitsupply FW'13. I believe it still is online

+1 I would totally buy and wear that in that package. Albeit, you look infinitely better in it, no doubt.

Nice sunny day, 27C, winter is on its way out.  But I have a new flannel three piece and it has to be worn at least once!

And if we're doing flannel, might as well add double-soled brogues...
