I am planning to make it up with the London lounge RAF blue linen which is mid blue-gray. So I think the issue with translucency will be less apparent. I posted a picture of it on the unfunded liabilities thread.

You ever have issues with linen fading? Anything linen I ever had faded a lot.

I haven't made any linen coats yet. I have noticed that on linen trousers they get lighter and more worn at the seat.

I got bigger and outgrew my suit jacket. Can a tailor fix it? It fits like half inch smaller in the shoulders as the chest is like an inch small

If not should I go back to the original tailor and get another jacket made in the same fabric?

If you feel for the tucked fabric, by the side and back seems, you should be able to tell if there is any cloth allowance. You can have your tailor assess the situation from there.

two things occurred to me today.

1. at first i was indifferent to BD collars. then i was specifically opposed them in entirety. and now, i love them. not really with a tie right now, but stand alone, with a sweater, or SC, i think they are awesome. and i have stocked up on them as of late.

2. i have decided, that at present, i only want to wear shirts that are blue or white. or a pattern, such as a stripe or check, that is blue and white. not really interested in any other colors at the moment.

just wanted to share that.

Went through something similar myself recently. I think buttondown collars are excellent worn without a tie, but would much rather wear a different type of collar with.

I would like dk green sport coats in linen and corduroy. Prob 3 patch.

+1 on learning the hard way to have sleeves of dark porous fabrics lined w/ dark lining. But unlined nonporous fabrics are great imo. I had a cotton twill sport coat w/ unlined sleeves and have one in the works now.

Funny, those two points apply to me as well.

I could add that I also observed a tendency in my wardrobe going towards medium gray odd trousers (navel high, deep single reverse pleats, daks top), brown suede shoes (loafers, mocs and single monks), navy and brown jackets (3 to 2, 4x2 and safariana).

A reflection of the social life of a student? No questions about it, but there is something about my style in there.

Btw, just bought my first clip on braces (x back). Damn Ethan.

Exact same thing has happened to me over the last 6-9 months. Just ordered some more OCBDs yesterday actually. Still don't like them with a tie, but I don't actually wear a tie that often.

This must be a common thing. I think after a while you realize the classics are a classic for a reason. And unfortunately, no amount of someone telling you that will cause you to realize it on your own. You have to come to that conclusion yourself.

At which point you pretty much only look at whnay's good taste thread.

This too. Used to have all sorts of different color trousers, and *gasp*, patterns!

Now, it's almost all just solid gray. Some worsteds, some flannels, but all grey of various shades. Mostly mid-gray. Sure, I've got one or two pairs of brown, and a pair of navy blue, but they don't get worn anywhere near as often as the grays.
