This jacket is excellent on your frame. You should consider wearing more DBs, esp. clean/structured ones, if they're all this good!

 

BTW, going back to your new suit from the other day, do you remember that a while back I commented that your old jackets sometimes appeared loose and bowing around the neck/chest? You responded that they laid flat when the jacket hung straight, which they certainly did. But compare the feel of your new suit to the old ones; I bet the new one tends to sit more cleanly against your body around the neck/chest in almost any position. That's not to do with softness of the cut, rather that the fit itself is better in that area.

 

 

 

Probably one of my last t-neck fits this year as the weather is gradually heating up:

Huntsman

 

Is the Huntsman unvented, Clags? 

post #73191 of 78717

Double vented. Unvented doesn't work well on me unless I'm standing completely still. I don't own any any more, and only have one single vented piece remaining.

I almost always wear a belt with a suit, but looking at Rudals picture is making me consider braces

I feel like belts are interrupting the "flow" of the suit. It isn't like my pants are going to fall down if I take them out to belt one my employees. That's one thing that I like about RLBL suit trousers. No belt loops. Better looking.

Had I bought everything in there that I liked I would need to remortgage my house. A line has to be drawn, and that was it. What a beautiful little store though. I have a feeling that I was greeted by RedDevil too, but since I don't know what he looks like I cant be sure, and I wasn't about to ask a stranger if they frequented internet forums under the moniker RedDevil.

It lays very cleanly in that case. Very nice.

Well there's dedication, and there's dedication, I suppose... :laugh:

Belts are better for summer suits IMO, as they look better that way if you take the jacket off. Winter suits are best with braces, as they tend to drape (a bit) better that way.

 

I'm increasingly coming to the conclusion that for my way of wearing/living, I want odd trousers belted rather than braced, but I'm not going to get rid of my existing braced odd trousers. Going forwards, though, provided I can dial in my bespoke belted trousers fit, I'm going belted for odd trousers.

Would you ever contemplate having trousers made with side adjusters and braces buttons? That provides the best of both worlds. Or do you wear your trousers with braces significantly higher on waist than side adjusters?

My braced trousers are already exactly that, in fact. However, I tend to like braced trousers to be a bit looser around the waist (and indeed, to sit fractionally higher), so even side adjusters can't quite compensate enough on their own; they'll hold the trouser up in position at first but will drift downwards during the day and I don't like haing to them hike them back up. My belted trousers are being cut tighter to the waist (and slightly lower), so they should hold their position better.
