Nothing wrong with the width of those lapels, to my eyes.

 

Alright, when both Kulata and EliodA tell you your lapels are not too wide, you have to listen to that.

At least in this picture, the lapels look pretty awkward at the notch, and the barchetta looks unrefined.

Good eye. Especially on the barchetta.

The weird gorge is probably just the angle. But yeah, the breast pocket is pretty funky and the trouser rise should definitely be higher (stylistic choice).

But man that back was clean.

Also, finally picked up the green tie I'd been "needing" from ET.

That's what first caught my eye...especially given that drop right shoulder that is more visible in the blue jacket picture.

Nothing chunky about the U and K last Vass, Cox. I have two pairs in the F and I love the last....it's a classic.

I split my work between Melbourne and Sydney these days and have crashpads (with storage space for clothes) in both cities.

I've split up my wardrobe between the two places and am duplicating certain essentials so that I don't have to tote heavier/bulkier items in my luggage all the time.

This process is just about complete, but black shoes are a staple item of which I only own one decent pair (Carmina calf oxford brogue wingtips on Rain last). I do have a pair of black Carmina lizard monkstraps, but these are not really workwear, are they.

I also have a G&G urge which has been building for some time. So anyway ... what's the GNAT groupthink on these:


St James II, MH71 last -



Oxford, TG73 last -



Personally I find the St James II to be better balanced. Yes, its decoration is more florid and therefore less CBD, but I find the chiselled toe of the Oxford to be a little extreme.

I can get away with either of these at work, so my decision can be on purely aesthetic grounds.

Wifey actually thinks I'm better off getting the St James II in a fancier colour like Vintage Rioja. However, I already have a pair of these in the pipeline:





...which has my burgundy brogued chisel-toed oxford itch pretty well scratched, I would have thought.

Feedback welcome, including black-shoe hate (where elegantly expressed).

Don't forget it's 35% off G&G at bespoke-London

Didn't want to do a full length as my trousers suck but here's the tie and pocket square combo. I know the tie is not the favorite of everyone but I love the shades of blue and brown together big time!



Jacket is Flusser, tie is Fumagalli (never heard of them), pocket square is Drakes.

This is a pocket square/tie combo I would never have considered a month ago.
