I'm not a huge fan of the fabrics on any of my sportcoats, actually - but that's what happens when you can only afford cheap RTW and some cheap MTM from time to time, lol. At least I hope I'm learning to turn what I have into cheap but coherent outfits. tounge.gif

Don't care for it myself so have no interest in it as a casual suit. I'd much prefer glen plaid. But since you said you like it, the last two sentences were typed for my own benefit.

Now, would you classify the cloth on this sport coat I posted a while back as OK for an odd jacket? The colour and the fact the plaid isn't really bold has me wondering (the coat has flap pockets and a welt breast pocket). I've worn it with both city and country accesories, mostly country though.

It's quite a busy check, perhaps a version with larger grids would be more pleasant for the eye.

How about the tan/black variety?

I imagine it resolves to brown or greyish brown from a distance so maybe. Up close it still strikes me as a little too busy and a little too out of the ordinary for one of the still-kinda-dressed-up industries.

I think glen plaid, and preferably a smaller scale, lower contrast one, is the edge of business suiting nowadays. But, again, I dislike houndstooth suiting so maybe that overly colors my view of things.

Odd coats need to be made up in check fabrics like Ed & gdl use, but then again I would have suits made up of horse blankets so YMMV.

frown.gif i thought it was awesome. maybe my pic was too small. also, the black tie is cashmere, and it has a really nice texture that is not showing in these pics.

ah well, maybe next time. thanks for replying though.

I have resolved to adopt a gdlesque approach to MC. He is the single-most person who not only dresses well but also incorporates a pcock attitude while conforming to a corporate-mandated standard. It should be noted that I will forgo the brolick watch thing. I will find the PRL equivalents to the Drake's ties he wears (because I'm not spending no more than $50 on a tie) and keep an eye out for the #awesome odd coats he dons. Images are courtesy of 1. For instance:






For SW&D I will stick to my own thang because son is wildin'.

Take this how you will. I have no regrets.

^ There really isn't a PRL equivalent to Drakes, Marinella, Holliday & Brown.

H&B is my favorite

Seriously, this. That pic of his closet he posted recently inspired some serious odd-jacket envy.

Come to think of it, based on my questions above, I may just try to ape his patterns when looking for a new jacket biggrin.gif

Depends on what kind of tie you're looking for, jrd. I've seen plenty of PRL over the years that's in the same ballpark as the ties NORE quoted.
