It also looks at this photo and to understand the perfection of the shoulder. Do you think that in this photo I'm holding the jacket with only two fingers. Also because I'm doing with the other hand the picture. It looks like it is the jacket.

That's some serious architecture there, lovely.

I thrifted one a bit like that a year or so ago.  Mine lacks the shoulder patch but for $40 who was going to sqawk?

For some reason I actually like yours better. I think I could wear yours more on an everyday basis OR it could just be that Lapel Feather biggrin.gif

Isn't that fun?  It's a German Tyrolean hat decoration.  I think it makes a rocking boutonniere on a shooting coat for autumn.

Both of those are very impressive.

And here's a wonderful new tweed hacking jacket.  Very subtle.

I think this is the first time I have seen you without peak lapels. Is there a reason for that? do peaks and tweed not go together? 

Sorry legitimate question as I am still learning.

post #2008 of 2288

Peak lapels and tweed definitely do not go together.  Tweed is casual, country wear (even when running around the city) and peak lapels are formal--at least more formal than notched lapels.  This is why you find them on double breasted coats (which are more formal than single breasted) and on evening wear.  Tuxedos should be either shawl or peaked lapels, cheap rentals and Hollywood ignoranti notwithstanding..

DB is less formal than SB in dinner jackets.

WORD. Excellent expression of one of my most heart felt beliefs.
