On pattern coordination between jacket/shirt/tie....................... - Page 12

post #166 of 434
I thought for sure I'd find a ton of multi-pattern combos in my posts, but I guess I haven't been as outlandish as I thought. This is about as far as I go these days:



I might have used a stripe with this if I had one.

Multi pattern combos are rare in SF today because everyone wears the same grenadine tie with everything.

I was going to experiment with a mult-pattern combo just for this thread but as it happens, I have no patterned summer suits. Well, I have one, a very nice glenn plaid, but Solito has it and he hasn't been near U.S. airspace in 18 months. My old seersucker is just too cheesy to wear any more. I need a new one.

I do have a couple of nice summer patterned cloth but haven't made them yet.

All my summer suits are solid fresco or linen, except for one seersucker. Pretty much the same with my summer odd jackets: all solid fresco, mixed plain weaves, linen, raw silk, and cotton. I recently got two glen checks in the old Babera for Lesser, and I have a Riviera gun club check in the works, but that's it.

There are some lovely patterns in Lesser Tropical, though everything I have from that book is solid. My glen plaid is Rangoon, sold out. Then I have a piece of the plaid Minnis fresco (one of the few patterns in that books and the only non-stripe), a really unique light blue Lesser mohair pattern and a tan fresco with a faint blue&white windowpane.

Jackets, I have two yellowish bottle green mini-checks, one is Lesser/Barbera, the other is old and I can't remember what it is but it looks like Riviera, in that style.

A linen gun club check type jacket should be arriving at my door within a few weeks...I will try to construct some cacophony of patterns with it to post in this thread.

oh, I am sorry to hear that, you should have asked us first, linen should never have a pattern.

In case anyone is wondering why not:

If it matters, I think it might have been a linen/cotton blend, but I can't remember. I'm almost sure it was out of the Ariston book. In any case, I thought it looked great at the fitting, so I'm excited to get it. At this point, I've resolved not to ask SF before all my purchases, and am willing to accept the consequences.

The pattern is sort of like this one as I remember:

It's this type of independent thinking which is ruining our country.

Well, my striped suit above is a linen/wool blend, but I don’t think it really makes a difference as to the acceptability of the pattern. On a side note, I found it interesting to learn how the blend is achieved. Sheep are fed a steady diet of flax seed, then the wool to be used in spinning the blend is shorn only from around the ... Oh, never mind.

I like linen blends with patterns but solid, never. Looks very bad.

my tie today is from a draper's jacketing that is linen silk, it would make a great summer jacket. Cappelli uses a lot of jacketings to make ties.

If you're going to fixate on the ubiquity of an MC trend, can we make it horrible casual clothing?
