The Napoli Su Misura Linen suits are a three-piece double breasted ivory in W. Bill Irish linen, the brown a three-piece single breasted. The waistcoats are slipped with slips the colour of the other suit, the buttons are identical on the suits.

Shirts by NSM - nubuck shoes by John Lobb, St james's

Theoretically this gives you the following possibilities:

1.Two-piece all brown
2.Three-piece all brown
3.Two-piece all ivory
4.Three-piece all ivory
5.Brown coat & ivory trousers
6. Ivory coat & brown trousers
7. Brown coat, brown vest & ivory trousers
8. Brown coat, ivory vest & brown trousers
9. Brown coat, ivory vest & ivory trousers
10.Ivory coat brown vest & brown trousers
11.Ivory coat, brown vest & ivory trousers
12.Ivory jacket, ivory vest & brown trousers

In an emergency you could even use the Ivory coat with a pair of black trousers for an unexpected black tie event,

As vertically challenged I'm partial to 9 and 10 as it optically elongates the look with the uninterrupted trouser/waistcoat colour.

Yeah, I mean, it's pretty cool, I guess. But don't you think there may come a time when you wonder, possibly aloud, if you've gone and done something too well? I think so. thumbs-up.gif

This seriously rocks.

Ivory double breasted is to die for.

Don't look vertically challenged at all.

Awesome suits but not sure how well they wear at 35c+ weather.

But I am just jealous. Maybe one day I have an estate home...

He's British, in men's clothing they're allowed.

 

Hell, they invented the stuff after all!

Good stuff, B.








Though I suspect two of those photos aren't from The Journal of Style ;-)

Butler do you by any chance have pictures of the SB and DB vests without the coat? Thanks.

Sorry I don't - the brown one is backless, by the way bigstar[1].gif

I would never have guessed they were backless. The brown vest also has lapels right? Are they notch or peak lapels?

Why would you guess it was backless, if done right it shouldn't show. I like wearing waistcoats with a summer suit, and they are often backless for obvious reasons! - notch lapels.
