Still not near as bad as Lapo's velvet abomination IMHO.

What are you talking about? Those are NSM-style shoulders. devil.gif

In NSM's pristine, sleek, white new shop, I'm guessing there is a dartboard with Foo's face on it.

So a question: for a non-black/non-blue/non-solid dinner jacket like Voxes - should it have grossgrain/satin lapels or be self-faced?

I have a red tartan dinner jacket that has a black satin shawl lapel. But I don't know what traditional standards are in that respect.

Thanks - these are from the 1950s and seem to suggest a contrasting collar was appropriate then. In addition, Vox's looks incomplete (for want of a better term) so I am inclined to go with a contrasting collar.

From A Suitable Wardrobe:



The cream-coloured jacket is a given, but I would never have thought a (baby?) blue jacket would look as good as it does here.

That does indeed look pretty boss, but the Churchwell brothers could wear a horseblanket and look BAMF, so take it with a grain of salt.

The Churchwell Bros.' outfits are the equivalent of bucking back at a sniper whilst driving your Rolls into the side of a building whilst a female companion performs oral on you.

Essentially, the Churchwell Bros. are the Rick Ross of #menswear.

Steven Hitchcock bespoke Velvet no vent, one button, peak lapel DJ with gros grain waistcoat and bow tie, bespoke Imperial collar by Budd, T & A shirt and PS. bigstar[1].gif

Only one reply above, so I ask the same question: On a tartan DJ, Blackwatch specifically, self-faced or black silk lapel?
