I think we now need to advocate for odd vests in the S/S lineup.

Vests?  i.e. no sleeves cardigans or suiting/jacketing vests?

post #1863 of 13952
I meant suiting/jacketing (i.e. waist coat), but I'm willing to trust your judgement.

That beard is developing a life of its own!

Greg, with that beard you should really be taking fit daguerreotypes instead of iPhone pics.

Interesting...what kind are you thinking? S/S doesn't seem like waistcoat season for obvious reasons. The traditional odd waistcoat is tattersall, but that's more F/W, and VERY english country gentleman. The other odd waistcoats I've seen are takes off of morning dress - like a dove or buff waistcoat worn with a navy suit. But maybe a cream linen waistcoat would be a nice addition to a brown linen suit....

With a linen suit, I prefer Butler's suggestion of switching in a different coloured suit jacket with the trousers and waistcoat matching; a sort of modern stroller style.

I'm confused :puzzled:

 

Are you located outside the US?   What is wrong with paying through a paypal invoice?  You pay with a credit card securely like any other cc transaction + you have better protection.

 

I am outside the US, and PayPal don't like the debit card my bank issues (Visa Electron), for some reason.  Amazon too.  Most other platforms like WorldPay and vendors in Europe and Asia are fine, as are many in the US.  But not PayPal.  So I'm safe from temptation for now.  Well, apart from all the other temptation that is...

What size are you wearing, Greg?  I find that I'm somewhere between a size 38 and 40 in Oliver Spencer, and usually get a size 38, because the shoulders in a 40 are an awkward fit.

That is a XL.  I would go with L if I planned on using as 2nd layer, but with a knit underneath, XL feels just right

@FrankCowperwood that looks great.  Oxblood is so hard to photograph indoors, it's a color that really comes to life in natural light

post #1874 of 13952

Thank you! It is indeed a very muted color indoors and then comes to life in the light.
