Thanks, sir. And it's an odd jacket; herringbone "faux-tweed".

^ interesting. I have to say that the shirt + tie combo says business to me so I would have worn that with a suit.

Appreciate the hommage with the backseat picture. smile.gif

I'm not sure a brown flannel herringbone suit is such a good idea actually

One of the reasons I posted it. I know it's outside the norm a bit, but the wool challis tie works well with the herringbone IMO. And the pencil stripes are definitely BD, but not as formal as a solid or end-on-end. Thought the textures and stripes made it slightly more casual/rustic. I'm meeting with a prospective client in Birmingham (read: the sticks) this afternoon, so I thought a suit too formal.

Per the homage, cheers.gif

I see - I couldn't tell the tie was wool - it probably works better than I initially thought.

both sound great - details on the brown PoW?

Thinking about Harrison's vs LL. Haven't had a chance to get a sample of the LL PoW. Might be too heavy for a three-piece.

It just doesn't sound like a suit to me. Think about it for a couple of minutes and try to picture it - what occasions would you wear a brown herringbone flannel suit for?

i hear ya, but i think you need to consider that i do not have "occasions." i just go to work and wear what i want. if its a nice looking suit, and it looks good on me, well then, the occasion to wear it is whenever i feel like it. is that so bad?

success, but small s success, with no exclamation points. Tie ground looks too close to suit ground.
