Jacket still needs to be altered. (Apologies for using the same tie as last week...)

Thanks for your kind words, much appreciated. The suit would normally be way above my budget, but I got a deal that was too good to let pass. It's an Attolini and made from an über-luxurious blend of S180 wool and cashmere. Unbelievably smooth to the touch, it feels softer and thinner than any of my shirts. The downside is that because of its light weight, it doesn't drape that well, so the suit looks a bit messy. But actually I think that's one of its charms. Of course, I don't dare to think about how quickly it'll wear out....
The tie is also a wool and cashmere blend, from an - unknown to me - shop called Maximilian Uomo in Italy. I got it 2nd hand from Ebay for $5.99
know what u mean. I had a suit made in 8oz, and altho it feels lite and wears cool it doesn't so drape well either. Especially the trews.
FYI i think yours looks fine, but I'll stick with > 10 oz/300gpm for everything now. Getting jackets half-lined really helps, as does having the trews slightly loose- even if it means sacrificing sillouhette a little.
Just a thought- If only Minnis would put a bit of cashmere in Fresco. that would be awsm
Thank you. I am not a fan of black shoes. I have two pairs that I use and the other pair is RMW chelseas which actually might be the better choice.
Food for thoughts.
Thank you very much. Makes me proud to reveive praise from you two gentlemen!
Thanks a lot! As you can read above, it's a 2nd hand tie from Ebay.
Love you grayscale fit of today! Another 'reduced palette'
