Wait, SebMcF got bad advice here?

Nope, got nothing but good advice! 

 

I pre-ordered the 46 before I realized that the 48 was a better overall fit. 

 

The 46 mostly fits well - and ordinarily I would the tightness across the back slip. But my standards are higher when it comes to a $1500ish jacket :)

Other than the Ring Jacket sitting on my porch...nothing really. I don't have (or need) all that much. I plan on doing a bespoke jacket from Steed in the fall.


Tweedy, he got good advice. The 48 is a better fit. I'm guessing he pre ordered the 46 before he knew that.

Edit: Seb beat me to it.

That's what I would have thought, although even the best team can't always have no losses.

Seb, I'm drooling looking at your B&S ad.  Could you post some measurements of the finished jacket (including sleeves)?  NMWA doesn't have them up for this jacket (though obviously one can get a reasonable idea from other Formosa). 

 

Murl, I get the feeling you're holding out on us a bit.  How much tailored clothing from Ring, Steed, Formosa et al haven't we seen?  


Sure, they are:

 

Chest: 20.2"

Waist: 18.5"

Shoulder (seam to seam): 17.7"

Sleeve: 24.6"

Length (from bottom of collar): 29.8"

 

Almost exactly the same as the NMWA website (could be my error in measuring)

The aim is giving enough contrast with what odd jackets you have, but also issues of warmth. "Cold" darker browns, IMO, can be harder to pair than warmer browns. Here's a pair of "dark" taupe trousers. They look like mid grays but really more brown (taupe I think of as grey-brown). They just didn't look great with navy or brown on top so I sent them back (HYs, actually, when Jamison used to respond).

I think yours are warmer, but can't really tell. If you plan to wear them with just shirts (biz caz), then dark brown shoes might do the trick (not black). If you were a 9US, I'd have just the thing for you.

If the purpose is to wear it with just shirts and a tie, I think it would be fine. 

However, it is a mid brown and wish it was a bit lighter. I think I will have some trouble matching jackets with this pair of trousers when I do start playing OJT (odd jacket/trousers). 

Conclusion: RETURN

That is a look one should never opt for.

 

If you had light SCs, the trousers might work. But if going with odd trousers is your initial foray into SCs, start with mid grey or tan/light brown. Both would work well with Navy SCs.

Me too! Should be fun.

 

Noodles, it might just be the photos, but if it's not, it looks like those trousers are resting on your hips. Try pulling them up closer to your waist. The Walt's have a mid or low rise (depending on one's POV), so they will only go so high. Still, you might eliminate some of the bunching in the back just by wearing them higher.

"Just shirts and a tie"? Shit, man.

Short sleeve because we're heading into summer, right?

I was thinking about doing steed in fall, but I think I'm going to try Panta bespoke instead. Stitches DB's inspired me.

Why is Noodles getting brown pants though? How many grays (different shades) do you have? puzzled.gif
