Green jacket looks outstanding, Sebastian McFox.  

 

Peanut gallery comment here: trousers look like they don't quite reach your shoes.  Is that that look you're after?

The pants will be lengthened and cuffed (going for a whispering break)

Awesome.  Can't wait to see the finished product.  Nothing I've encountered on StyleForum since joining makes me happier than seeing many of our best dressed members showcase the possibilities of the green jacket.  It's such a beautiful, versatile addition that, like brown and blue, looks good in cloth appropriate for every season, from hopsack linen to heavy tweed.

I'm getting a brown jacket soon from Kent Wang (it'll be my fifth brown, for those who think I just own blue). After that, a green (my fourth green, for those who think I just own blue). Then I'll be getting another blue.

Green is great. All three of mine are mossy, so I'll be looking for something a bit lighter

Would love to see both when you've got them.

My next two are brown winter-weight twill or herringbone, then green in a linen or linen blend for spring/summer.  There's a moss green donegal on B&S that, if it doesn't move soon, might be an intermediate purchase.

I have a green one but I don't think people liked it. Wasn't tweedy or linen but in fresco. I likely though. It a blazer not a sc I suppose.

I'm jealous.

 

Out of curiosity, and in keeping with the spirit and purpose of this thread, can you share the reasons for these purchases?  Are there particular holes in you're wardrobe which these will fill?  Are you unsatisfied with aspects of fit or style of your current brown, blue, and green jackets?  Something else?

 

Cheers,

Great, thanks for your help. I'm still a little concerned about venturing into pure linen jackets, but green seems like a versatile and interesting addition when you already have jackets in blue, brown and tan. Especially when the jackets are worn casually, as is the case for me.

As much as I like their shirts, the single Finamore tie I own hasn't really impressed me.

I don't own any. What is disappointing about it?

Poor knot, can't get a decent dimple and always ends up smallish. And it feels 'limp', for lack of a better word. But perhaps it's just this one only, I wouldn't know.

My favorite blue jacket is beginning to show signs of wear. Not quite. Nothing tangible or visible. But it's beginning to look very comfortable. It's both a good thing and a bad thing. Anyway, this will be the last season it gets heavy wear (3-4 times a month). This means I'll be needing to replace it. While I have plenty of blue jackets, this is my only "standard" blue jacket. Nothing really idiosyncratic about it.

So while I know I was intending on getting another brown first...I'm getting a blue jacket. I'm thinking one of these blues from Kent Wang:




Thoughts? Outside of "don't get more blue, Claghorn, you fucking nut"
