An attractive and interesting suit! It's a great fit. I like the length of the coat. But, the right shoulder is peaking up slightly. Maybe it is due to the way you are standing or the angle of your arm.

This coat looks wonderful on you. I'd say that you made out like a bandit.

Great suit and shoes!
I will repeat the SF mantra - "Would look better with a light blue shirt". I also agree with Clags that the tie looks a little out of place with a casual linen jacket, it would work better with a suit.
Not feeling the shirt in this context, a solid would be much better.

Love the fabric, P. Is there something going on with the left chest, though? Perhaps some shaping needed there?

Excellent, HF. Just a shame that in the smaller sizes the Soho lapels obscure the chest pocket so much.

I enjoy a green pant, Don, but I'm afraid this combination isn't working for me. The top and bottom halves don't work well together IMHO.

Even if I have worn striped ties before (and posted here as well) I have been warming up to them recently. I plan on getting a few more over the next few months. They seem to be particularly useful with the type of checked jacket I was wearing today, the smaller scale houndstooth variant, that are hard to pair with neats and other patterned ties.

That shape would be my wallet, which obviously needs to be slimmed down shog[1].gif

LOL

I was actually driving into work with my wife and I handed the PS to her and asked her to fold it up. I have no idea how she did it but I like it better than a TV fold. If she folds it for me like that then I will continue to wear like that. I gotta have a little fun here and there. 

Nice bad@ss suit by the way

The jacket was clearly a bargain, in that case.

Nice suit HF. Is that SS Soho yes?

 

So guys, I need your help. I'm at a conference with work, full of accountants and finance people. This is what I wore today:

 

 

It was sprung on me earlier that there is a dinner tonight that I need to attend. Its not black tie, or even particularly formal. However I only have a limited amount of stuff with me - jeans and sweater won't cut it. I do have another suit and white shirt with me, with a couple of ties. This is what I was planning to wear tomorrow:

 

Grey suit, white shirt, brown tie.

 

These are the other two ties I have with me:

 

Both navy.

 

Now, the question is, what should I wear tonight? I want to change out of what I've been wearing all day but at the same time I don't want to compromise what I'm planning to wear tomorrow. I do have another white shirt which I wore on the way down yesterday, but it is a little wrinkled. However tomorrow is a short day so I could get away with it.

 

Could I wear today's light blue shirt with the same suit and the tie on the right? Or should I wear white shirt for dinner, with the same tie and navy suit? I'd rather keep the grey suit for tomorrow. However I want to wear the right thing for dinner (which is not a 'formal' dinner as such, but I have nothing other than jeans as I mentioned).

Can you wear one of the suits with the sweater underneath it and no tie?

Like, over a shirt? Possibly. The sweater is a rather bright red though. Its also roasting here so I'd be sweating buckets.

 

PLUS - I wore the red sweater last night when we were having drinks.
