A local cheap one I kept using for last couple years. Strange this is labelled as brown on Minnis website...

I don't object.

That is not correct I'm afraid, although often postulated here - it is in fact a classic combination.

I am, however, wearing a yellow shirt as it were, but difficult to see on the monitor I grant you!

Cross post from friday challenge:

On Claghorn's urging, I present to you: not a rule broken per se, but modification on convention, the coat 3 piece.

 

First got this idea where people talked about wearing a coat but not a jacket to work because of indoor heating in some places, and some people choosing to wear a waistcoat in those situations to keep up some formality (so one can still wear a tie, cover up button area and break between trousers and shirt). So then I thought, why not just wear a three piece where the jacket is coat instead? And I love trenchcoats, so I comissioned this from Luxire, with the benefit being that all the pieces are entirely wearable on their own.

 

Fabric is Dugdale Caldonaire Tweed. Had them make me a hood for the drizzles, too.

Buttoned up:

 

With hood up, kinda ugly, but hey, function.

 

 

Featuring gloves and bag:

 

 

With hood attached: the collar lifts up a little, slightly melodramatic I think.

Wearing a Dunn & Co Harris Tweed jacket when visiting my old friends, Santa and Mrs. Claus.  

Santa let me hold his Staff Of Office in recognition of my lifetime of work supporting the Claus Cause.

Verily Christmas mirth is wasted on Roycru's teutonic countenance!

Alright, that's enough from my funny bone side. I like that shirt collar shape, is it vintage Brooks Bros. stuff?

I don't think anyone would mind me posting this here. I have one of my bespoke, tweed malloy and Sons tweed sport coats up for the SF holiday auction right now, retail is 3000 and we are currently up to 2150 I think.

This is was last tweed out the door:






The winner will get a fully handmade bespoke which means a garment produced locally, an individual pattern produced and stored for them, multiple fittings and naturally a try on fitting. If you live out of state or abroad we can work out for you to come in at your leisure or we could do a stock size and ship to you.

Styling, lining and cloth choice is up to the winning bidder.

Best,

Dave.
