Where is the suit from, Darkside?  Like Unbel said, not bad at all.

@Coxsackie , I have multiple pairs of glasses from a really simple pair of black gucci rectangular frames that I wear for interviews and important work days, to a pair of crazy giant tortoiseshell frames. I like having multiple pairs and I view them as an accessory. I'm not sure I'm sold on either of these tbh.

Cox -- I think your eyes sit too close to the tops of both those frames.

I like the second pair more too fwiw.

 

Darkside that looks pretty good to me.

How about these?

 These are better than the ones you modeled Cox, in my humble opinion. Looks lke you might suit smaller frames too.

Those looks nice to me too.

I like this kind of style:

Why the eff am I even posting... I'm pulling an all nighter at work!!!



ARGHHHHHH!!!

Wow, great response from everyone. Appreciate all the comments, positive or negative.

 

I have a rotation of about four pairs of specs already, so this was a discretionary purchase; driven in part by opportunity. You see, in Shanghai you can get incredibly cheap prescription lenses. I favour "progressive" lenses, which cost minimum US$500 back in Oz. Here they are about US$150. But one does need a set of frames to put them in.

 

I just happened to walk past a little retail booth near my hotel which looked to stock a pretty fashion-forward collection, so I tried a few on and thought, yeah, why not. I can get Lindbergs back in Sydney and then have a Sydney optometrist put some progressive lenses in and - whoosh - there goes a grand. I'd rather put that order of coin towards a bespoke suit project.

 

So anyway I ended up buying the faux-Shurons. Caught the metro over to Shanghai Railway Station and dropped in on My Man at the Sanye Optical Plaza. 30 minutes later I had my progressive lenses (which are great) and I'm as happy as a pig in shit.

 

Not only that. Everybody who's seen them has commented on how cool they are.

 

Still, you guys are great and this is a legendary thread. Thanks again!

Universal problem for me, but easy fixed. Just pinch the little nose rests closer together and hey presto, glasses sit higher.

 

The bridge of my nose is incredibly thin. Blame my Slavic genes!

My rx is pretty low and I bought like 3 pairs of glasses from coastal for about 20 bucks each shipped when they had a 'first pair free' offer going on.


I have a pair of giant tortoishell, a rounder one like I posted, and a pair of black frames where the bottoms are thin/metal and the top is thicker.

^^ Happy endings are the best.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. The suit is full-canvas MTM from Andrew Lock, who is actually a SF affiliate. Shirt and tie are Kamakura. According to @europrep, Andrew and Kent Wang use the same manufacturer.

I’m looking around for a versatile jacket, something i can wear with flannel trousers and cotton trousers and something I can wear casually and at the office.
I was thinking about a medium navy jacket with patch pockets ( but welted breast pocket, patch breast is not my thing) in hopsack.
How would you rate this jacket in term of versatility? Considering here the summer is very hot and the winter mild ( 15C- 60F)

Sounds like a good idea.
