post #8251 of 13589

Put this together for a wedding. I know Manton doesn't like the jacket, any thoughts? Good taste?

Now that spring is here, I feel like I need to put away my mid-gray flannel pants. What is the spring/summer equivalent? I have gray gabardine, but they lack the texture of the flannel.

Fresco / variegated tropical wool. I'd also suggest dressy chinos for less formal occasions.

I know I'm not one of the ordained, but I want to play. You should put that square back in the garage where you found it, biggrin.gif. I really like all the other elements, but the ensemble doesn't work as well as a lot of your other fits.

I don't love that jacket either, but I'm biased against most warm-colored odd jackets because they usually look dated, so perhaps my opinion is not valuable. I think that square is terrible, but Foo's cream square would make the look work, overall.

Interesting suggestion. I usually bring the one square to rule them all (silk cream), but didn't this time.

I said I wasn't going to Foo anymore, so I won't, but: double paisley?!?

The coat and shirt look nice.

Is this the sort of commentary now standard here? Come on, Doc. You can do better than that!

FooBot lives in Manton's head, not mine.

Caustic -
Green PS is not good IMHO. Looks like you got hit in the chest by a paint ball gun. I'd say that's just not a good color for a PS in general. The pindot tie is a little "business" for the houndstooth SC too.

ms-
For me the summer equivalent of mid-grey flannels is natural-color linen.

GENERAL COMMENT: USE SPOILERS!!!!!

It is really easy. Just highlight the stuff you want to spoiler and click the little black comment box in the middle of the icons on top of of the text box. If you're really too lazy to do that, then don't quote posts, and instead just write "Victor, looking great" or, even better if you just want to give generic positive feedback, click the thumbs up thingie. That's what it's there for.

Thanks for the summer trouser suggestions. What about spring or cooler summer days? This would be for days where it is too cool for tropical weight or linen, like April and May in the Northeast? I plan on going with mid-gray gabardine until June, along with recently-acquired dress chinos.

I like heavy linen. If it's too cold for my heavier linen, then it's not too warm for flannel. No need for anything in between.
