Claghorn,

 

I like the red striped shirt with that tie, but it might work even better on a red pencil stripe, and with a darker jacket.

The compass, and the watch chain were my father's, found among his belongings after his death some ten years ago. I never saw him wear either item during his lifetime, so I have no idea whether the chain and compass were his, or his father's, or older.

Well THAT is simply a travesty.

@SeaJen 

I spent about 5 minutes looking for your last fit post but cannot find it to give you a thumbs up. 

Now can someone give me 4 more so I can join the 30+ club. 

Then I can put that on my resume.

Well, i like them. but was just sitting here imagining a smartly dressed grey haired gentleman, stepping out of a car that could be a 1970's Jaguar hardtop.  donning a hat, as the sun is shining.

he winds his watch and set's it to the town square clock's time. it's 8:30am upon reading directions given by an old friend, proceeds south east. with the sun warming him gently on the way to that "Little coffee place" .- a spring in his step thought only posessed by a younger man.  

 

   this beer fueled dream was in animated form , like a miyazaki movie.

A more balanced buttoning (look, I am advocating for a low) will be more flattering and more comfortable. Would also play with the lapels shape and with the sleeve length.

I might agree with you, were it a standard waistcoat. However, with the lapels on the waistcoat I think the buttoning point is at an ideal position to complement the second set of lapels.

I have invested in four new SC:s the last couple of months along with four pairs of flannels so I now have more to choose from.



Stitch told me more than a year ago that I should ditch the cotton (moleskins) for wool. My excuse then was that I ride a bike to work...



The solution is to keep a couple of trousers and SC:s in the office :-) So now I ride in appropriate trousers and change at work. I drive my car to work about once a week and then I rotate the wardrobe...



 



My new window spot for pics seems to bring out the flavours better too.

 



Anden, I went through pants deal recently, and think I had a little epiphany. While others look great in their flannels, herringbone weave, tweed pants, etc. I just do not ever feel really comfortable in wool pants. I have found that my thighs are large compared to my waist, and I always either get the pocket flare, or if not, the waist is too big, etc. I have taken some to the tailor to work on and they still just don't feel great. I have PRL, RLPL, Brooks Brothers, Canali, Hickey Freeman, etc. and I haven't really found one that I love. In cotton pants, I don't mind if there are a few wrinkles, or something is a tad off- but it bothers me in wool.

I was at the back door the other day lighting a cigarette in an ocbd, some cotton chinos and my slippers, and aside from differentiating the footwear, I think that is me. I would like to post some pictures in suits and sportcoats, as I have several- but I am not required to wear them to work, so they don't come out extremely often. I think this was a big step for me in defining my style. I also think it will free me up from investing in, and then still feeling largely dissatisfied with more refined tailored clothing. I am not saying you should do it, but I am saying I am going to. I might even purge some of the stuff that I like, but don't love.

That's some powerful movie projector installed in your head, there, young man - or you have at your disposal some really interesting beers.
