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

That's a thing? I think it's the coolest part of the whole fit.

apparently yes, thats a thing. it touches on the matchey matchey issue, but like you, i think in that fit its effing awesome. i remember @aeglus did something similar a while back and i loved it.

Thanks for the kind words. Yes, I realize it's too matchy-matchy for SF rules, but in this case I felt it worked. Glad to hear I'm not the only one. :-)

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 :nodding:

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

Grey day so why not match the skies? Corneliani SC, Boggi Tie etc.

+1 for reduced palettes. Clean and simple. Bravo.

Anden you look good too. I dig light gray jacket on charcoal trou. My only nit would be bals with SC. Have you thought about getting black bluchers for fits like this? I have played with the idea, but they seem so pigeonholed to me. If I didn't have this bal-suit roadblock maybe it wouldn't be a problem. Also I'd be curious to see oxblood here even though you are monochrome otherwise. YMMV

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.

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' :slayer:
