Also, I can only second Stitches comment that the fit would look much better with the jacket buttoned.

 

Thanks! It's good to see you're back again! I'm a little surprised it isn't too matchy, but now that I look back on it, a closed jacket would certainly have helped to break it up.

A fine spring day, new cufflinks, an old tie, and a perfect color match.

Get this 15$ Alfred Dunhill sports coat thrift yesterday. Unfortunately the right arm length is an inch longer than the left one and the first two buttons are functional. Otherwise it´s a real nice sports coat.

Funny you mention that, I had out dark brown shoes and put them back in favor of these...like I tell my students, always trust your first instinct. smile.gif

Maybe, but I just got these pants back from tailor, and sent my lighter grey ones in (finally got to my ideal weight). Half my clothes are being altered, so I'm making do. That, and I saw a black tie/blue coat look that I liked so I tried it.

Well done, Crusty!

What is the weight on the fabric? How late in the season do you think that can be worn?

The fabric weight is very light - it was made to be a spring/summer suit, so it'll be in rotation for a while yet.

Are you pinching the jacket together instead of just buttoning and standing naturally? I've been meaning to ask that.

No, I'm just lightly holding the button "in mid-fasten". Just trying to get a pose together. I was getting a bit fed up with my old "stock" pose (the arms out in a v to the sides), it was making my sleeves look too bunched up. I'm trying to get a more natural pose but without doing the arms-by-the-side robopose. But I'm not pinching the jacket. I'll keep experimenting.

Thanks, yeah I've a good few tattoos at this stage; the sleeve and a few on the other arm, one on my side... doesn't really cause a problem in work as the shirts are long enough to cover the sleeve. Still have to be careful though, you never know what people might think, especially when I go out to meet with clients.
