Love the tie and will be following your lead on a rough Thai silk when spring hits here in the States, jfrater. I think the biggest incongruity here is between the jacket and the shoes. Clags wants you to keep the shoes and change the jacket, but I think this isn't a terrible fit if you put on some lighter brown bluchers or monks and tropical wool trousers, either.
For what it's worth, I love the idea of patch pockets with a double-breasted jacket, but Clags is right--this one's inconsistent in its formal/casual elements. There's an Eidos in the B&S thread that to my mind gets a bit closer to consistency.
I think I have 16. Two are on one bar, but I am sure you can't see that. Plus two more that I won't get tailored for a while since they won't be worn till summer. Plus some denim. Regardless, I am not superstitious.
Thanks. I'm obviously a bit shorter as I go 52" for length but like the 3.5" width as well. I've tended to get my non-grenadines from Hober in 6-folds, but that one looks pretty darn good with 4.
I think Claghorn should be a professional fashion consultant.
I don't like the pockets on the jacket, @jfrater. But that's a personal taste.
I think a SB jacket would have been better a combo with the rest of your outfit.
A solid shirt would have made this perfect to me.
- Very nice collection of ties, shirts, jackets, etc
- Tends to combine tie, shirt, and jacket combos that clash with each other
- Quickest and easiest fix would be to use solid shirts more
