definitely worth a repost-- Don, whatever it is you've done to this suit (especially the trousers), it has a superb effect/ look! this is really great, extremely well done sir.

I'm sorry..

I posted it on SW and D and they all laughed!

You all liked my Burberry navy cashmere coat anyway..

I have several Savile Row bespoke projects in progress, so I'll post those once they're done

No harm meant:)

Okay, let's see them when they're ready!

Come on now AAS. Surely you've been around Styleforum long enough to know that it's against the law to question Tibor's giant cartoon chapeaux. And whatever you do, don't mention the word 'costume' or he'll put a hit out on you!

Hello, thank you for your honest and sincere question. I will try and answer it to the best of my abilities. The fedora is without a doubt the largest I have ever owned. In an open crown it is a colossal 6 1/2 inches tall. When creased it is about 5 1/2 inches tall. That is too tall for me when I design my custom hats. For my custom hats I keep it 5 7/8 to 6 inches in an open crown, and 5 inches to 5 1/4 when creased. In my personal opinion, I feel this very large hat does not look to big on me, in-fact I feel quite gallant when wearing it. I do feel that it keeps within the proportions of my aesthetic. With that said, it is a high quality hat that was made in the 1970's, so it certainly exercises a more Jaunty and Cavalier attitude than your standard classic fedora. Even with its vibrant panache, I do believe it still maintains an authentic regal elegance.

The shirt was always going to divide opinion, not least because it is multi-coloured, one of which picks up the vest almost exactly. And perhaps too poplin-looking. Wool tie good, but plain may have been better with the herringbone weave jacket. And the chinos may be thought just too casual, or perhaps summery, for the top block. Brown or gray flannel and there could be no complaint - but you don't always feel like wearing flannel. And, hey, you're in a beautiful Oriental garden, you're warm, you have dressed to respect yourself and everyone you meet, and this is a hard school.

There is a lot of visual interest here in the textures of the tie/sweater/coat. I think if you made the shirt solid (ecru, blue, white) it would make the whole fit better.

 

Thanks for the constructive comments and advice, gents.

Of course questioning is never wrong as long as it is sincere. Sometimes Styleforum posters, post degrading comments thinly veiled as opinions because they have an inferiority complex or feel an urge to self project a basic lack of respect. If you feel my hat is too big for me, or any other flaws, I can respect your opinion. Everyone has every right to express what they feel, as long as it is intended to be constructive. I respect everyone, as long as they are non-malicious, but if ones want to come at me with some passive aggressive BS, I may choose to call one on it.

Whether or not one accepts your view on this, its size and - as you put it, 'regal' - nature means that it doesn't work in such a casual outfit as the one you just posted. Full DB suit perhaps, but with a cardigan? Not so much.

I agree with you. That is quite sensible. From now on, I will leave my most regal hats with my most regal outfits.
