Wait until I get my fancy plaid DB suit. Hmmmm.

Clapeyron:  On the second outfit, is that a suit or an odd jacket?  I'm assuming a suit but the colour of the jacket looks darker on my monitor in the first picture at least.

 

Love the green (grenadine?) tie.

They can be. It's about usage, not any simple rule of thumb.

Did you find one you like? I got a length of Minnis Alsport, little heavy but was the only one I found that I liked.

I was thinking of a pattern like this for the DB, would this be considered big, obnoxious and in good taste?

For a suit? That is going to wind up a very casual suit with limited usefulness. As long as you are okay with it, then no problem.

It seems that it's common for SF'ers to get it backwards. They get odd jackets that are too subtle and quiet, and suits that are too loud and strange. What is up with that?

Good observation. One I haven't thought of, but makes perfect sense.

Yep, I get your point, and that's exactly why I think of suits like this - because casual suits make more sense for me. I would wear it way more often than, say, a solid navy smile.gif

 

This wouldn't be my next commission anyways, I have some more staples to get before that.

 

And yes, my current collection of odd jackets is pretty bad due to the two things you mention. Working on it.

This actually makes a lot of sense. I know I did this when I was first starting out.

Loud[ish] suits are great.
But I agree that too-subtle odd jackets are pervasive and unwelcome in these parts.
