Awww CP, that's kind of you to say.

Thank you for the tumbs-up from yesterday.

It was pure serendipity that a number of Dirnelli's old suits (that are now too large for him due to weight loss) happens to fit me like a glove. These Caraceni suits required substantially more tailoring then the Cifonelli pieces I got from him, but the end result is still pretty darn good. Anyway, the take home message is that it's Dirnelli's ability to locate vintage suits that should be lauded... nod[1].gif

Do you have clip on braces for your odd trousers? I've toyed with braces but pulled back since they traditionally, are worn with suits not odd trousers. But the comfort idea and the perfect placement of the trouser is really appealing.

Ni clip-ons, that's cheating! I have just put brace buttons in all my trousers (and removed belt loops on most). I know that braces are traditionally only used with suits, but I just don't care about that as comfort beats tradition in this case (for me anyway)......

That's not an FU jacket, that's just awesome.

I saw Dirnelli's big suit/jacket sale via his tumbler. Too bad not in my size. You've scored well!

 

I agree: I would hate clip-ons. Will definitely rethink the issue. I do sometimes like wearing a belt, though, for an added visual dimension.

Sitting down feels a little more relaxed, but it is harder to judge fit. I'll keep mixing it up nod[1].gif

I'm not sure why you wouldn't wear suspenders with your odd trousers. Presumably they're cut like your suit trousers, right?

Agreed + noone ever sees them except for you (& maybe a spouse).

Agreed, but people will definitely see a flash of your suspenders as you go about your day, not that there's anything wrong with that. I wish I could wear them professionally, but I'd be instantly equated to the Gordon Gekko stereotype.

The is the second vintage Caraceni suit that has been altered and is taken out for spin to determine any further alterations. Absolutely fantastic suits, both cloth and construction is top notch. I'm now also completely sold on roped shoulders and I will definitely be getting that on all my pieces going forward. Great stuff (Click to show)



That is lovely. Somehow your youngest fit. Agree with you on the roping, awesome. Another deal with/from a known forumite? You're one lucky man. smile.gif
Wear in good health.

You might want to reword this in part.
Next one could come with something like "that stool sample pic looks great". wink.gif

This is from Thursday. Quiet is what we aim for. With gray quasi-flannels and dark brown AE Strands.
