Well, apart from your actual favourite...

 

 

Donegal...hmmm....too much cloth currently inbound but might have to add one.

I recommend, it's interesting but subtle, elegant if you may. I'd happily commission another coat in a different color of the same cloth, perhaps next winter, now I've two linens and a raw silk in the works.

mimo, with that link you have forfeited any right to complain about denim in MC. Just nope. You're done.

The thing is I live in a climate that has two months of warm, three months of hot, and seven months of really fucking hot, so it's not an obvious choice for me.  But I just can't resist it. Too much for a suit, perhaps, but I think I have to have a jacket at least.  I just love that texture.

I'm actually scared to click the link myself - one glance was enough to know it was the correct gift for you.  That Google search, I think, just raised flags in government basements on three continents.  Glad to be of service.

I only complain about denim in CM.  I think I might reject MC as a concept in itself.  But you do have a point.  I'm sorry.  Let's just think about tweed and ancient madder for a moment, shall we?

Seemed as good an opportunity as any to wear my dark chocolate Hober grenadine and brown tweed jacket. Shirt is pink, trousers mid-grey flannel and shoes are chestnut monks.

mimo,

MC = Men's Clothing in old StyFo parlance before they decided to call it Classic (& Timeless) Menswear.
post #205 of 239

You mean before they separated the children's section?  For the best, really.

 

(Great jacket and tie, Archie - although surely the trews will be a disqualification.  Where are the monks from?  Nice shape.)

post #206 of 239
No, when they launched the redesign, MC (already separate from SW&D) was renamed CM.
post #207 of 239

Ah, now I'm with you.  That's a bit sad: I rather enjoy the implicit message that if it's SW&D it's not really for men.  Anyway, sorry for the digression.  Blame Derek's PVC.

Thanks. Hmmmm, I had thought grey trousers were acceptable, just not a suit or jacket. If I'm wrong, I may swap out the trousers for beige moleskins and try another picture.

Monks are C&J Monkton.
