Bumping an old thread because I found the tumblr images on a google search and think it's awesome. Create more guides.

Takes a lot to compress all the images in Photoshop.

Does anyone have MS OneNote? I may just end up releasing the OneNote collage files that contain the images.

I have suits as well.

Awsome!  Both OneNote or Evernote are great.  People can figure out the file translation themselves

Some glen plaid sportcoats, not a lot. If you read the thread, you'll see I have them arranged by color, not pattern

Chogall is beta testing the file biggrin.gif

This sounds like an appropriate thread for a question...

Looking at having a navy blue sport coat made. It would be my first one, so it would be used for the office and casual nights out.

 

Questions:

 

- What fabric and texture should I look for - I was thinking worsted wool, no higher than super 120's

 

- What buttons would look better and be more appropriate; white MOP, or brown horn?

 

- Patch or flap pockets?

It's hard to recommend a cloth without knowing which weight are you looking for, but I'm going to assume that you're looking for a 11~13oz cloth. Hopsack, fresco, linen (if your office offers some leeway on the dress code); try tweed and flannel for A/W; avoid dark navy. Definitively brown horn, in a shade lighter than the fabric. Patch, flap for suits, but that's purely subjective.

fresco, brown horn, patch hip pockets and welted chest

Wouldnt fresco be a bit too airy for Toronto?

My thoughts exactly.


It's hard with Toronto, but if at all possible, looking for a 3-4 season coat.

 

Also thinking of a peaked lapel (I'm shorter - 5'8") so I think that will help with the illusion of height. I thought I read somewhere in Flusser, but can't remember for the life of me, is there any problem with peaked lapels and patch pockets? It's driving me mad!

Didn't see that you're from Toronto. What's the average climate in Toronto? From what I googled, it's the same as here (-10~35˚C) and I use 12oz fresco until the temperature goes bellow 15˚C. Also, there're heavy versions of the recommended cloths.

Drop the Flusser bullshit, nothing will make you look like 6', except for high heels. Personally, I'd only get peak lapels on a three piece suit, which is the most formal you can go on the lounge suit scale, and peaks with patches are an incoherent combination.
