Will do - going for the Havana SC in navy and will search the store for some other dark/mid blues to try on.

Curious to see to how the susu pants fit me as well

Could not have paired it better myself

Thanks. Coming from you, that means a lot. I'm really enjoying the quality and drape of the two ties I purchased. The weight is just perfect to me. I will probably take advantage of your current discount in the coming days and order a few more.

 

Are there any give aways that this is an orphaned suit jacket and not a SC (buttons, pockets etc). It's hard to see the fabric, possibly in the last picture.?

About to order a green grenadine and the discussion above re the depth of the green and wearability has given me pause.

Thanks in advance.

this?  awsm look bar the white

Thanks, gentlement. It's actually navy according to the seller (and my monitor). I wouldn't even consider it if it was charcoal.

But it being an orphan is what I suspected. The buttons and flap pockets gave it away, although the seller insisted on it being a SC. It seems to be some kind of twill weave, if that helps. At least that's what it looks like on my monitor.

Thanks Pliny! It is great but not exactly the one I was thinking of. I believe there is another head to toe shot where he is wearing suede loafers and a darker green tie. Anyway this is helpful too. I just got a jacket with a very similar check and I was looking for combo inspirations.

If the other shot comes to anyone's mind I'd greatly appreciate it.

If it is navy and you like the fabric and price, kop it and swap the buttons.  Don't worry about flap pockets...that really has nothing to do with SC versus suit IRL....it is a matter of your personal preference.

It would have benefit from a light blue shirt. Looks good nonetheless.

That looks great with the donegal jacket, Sebastian McFox.

Indeed, that looks very good.
