SF Family:
Sam Hober (tie)
Kent Wang (square)
Howard Yount (trousers)
Unipair (shoes)

Out of the many exemplary posts by Brother @Claghorn, this has to be one of his best. Somehow, I missed this a few weeks ago. Worth a re-post. What a sleek-looking DB coat!

This is a declaration for your suit: I love you.

^^^^ (referring to CP's post)

 

My favorite fit to date, especially in terms of combinations.

 

@RDiaz , if you want to catch up a bit, might I suggest this thread:

Sorry to hear that, and thank you. Mine is pretty much the opposite, moved to a new house with my woman. But the only income we have is mine, so €700 jackets are pretty much out of reach now!

sounds pretty good if it's a bespoke process.  I don't have Crystal Springs but some of them look fantastic.

I miss you guys as well :P

My life has changed and I'm basically poor now, and completely absorbed by work and other matters. No money for clothes, thus my interest in classic menswear as a hobby is fading. Hope better times will come. Or maybe I will switch from expensive MTM to thrifting smile.gif

 

 

She is a cruel master, the @menswear.  However, you already have an exemplary wardrobe to play with.   I'm also feeling inclined to slow down and limit myself to occasional really special pieces.

You really surprise me.     I don't rate that one all that highly in your generally stellar repertoire.:confused:

post #75547 of 78724

After the fun and games of recent days, I've decided to go for a more CBD, subdued, hopefully-coherent fit today. Appreciate the feedback.

 

 

 

 

Suit is M&S Collezione

Tie I got in Florence in 2008

Shirt is Savoy Taylors Guild

Shoes are Grenson Kirk

Just to be me I went for that PS - might be matchy with the tie but it adds a bit of fun into the proceedings.

Ah, a different fit of mine was quoted as I was making my post. I was referring to CP's post of the DB jacket.

Good to hear from you. I know you have an excellent wardrobe so please share when you have the time.

Winter has returned to NYC - highs today only about 10C/50F, but sunny and clear (and predicted to be windy - brrrrrr).

Money comes and goes. As long as you've got a good wardrobe you're always good to go (and we know you've got one) wink.gif

Thank you gentlemen. I still do use the CM elements in my wardrobe (moving towards a "smart-casual" style though), but haven't posted anything in a while because it would become quite repetitive smile.gif

So, following the feedback and advice I received, I went shopping. Sleeves still need altering (only got it yesterday) and the shoulders may be a bit too wide but I think overall the fit is much better.

(apologies for the bathroom selfie)

I'm afraid you have a huge collar gap.
