Its funny on Yahoo home page they said Eli Manning dressed like a grandpa. He was wearing a gunclub jacket and a light blue shirt. Seems SF appropriate to me lol

Eli looked fine, but not great. Them NFL commentators, like Prime Time, dresses well. And did anyone catch the suit sponsors before the kick off? I saw Samuelson, and then a bunch of other recognizable brands.

Usually Samuelson and Canali

If anyone saw Terrell Davis, Eric Berry, or Orlando Pace during the NFL Honors? We helped them with some shirts and accessories.

I had the same jacket last year but sold it after a disastrous sequence of tailoring events. It's just see-through because it's such a loose weave, but that makes it much more comfortable to wear during the summer. I would consider giving that jacket another go with a different tailor if I wasn't in the middle of commissioning a KW summer suit.

He needed those 2" lapels and a skinny silver tie over a black dress shirt to be 2016 society approved.

Yes very loose weave. Not sure if I should keep or exchange hmmm

The fit seems to be okay, except the waist is a bit constrictive

Sometimes it does.  There are people here that look great with cuffs, pleated pants, braces, etc. or a jacket that is tweed, gun club or something else that has a little bit of that vintage vibe.  There is no grandpa vibe for these folks because everything is spot on, from tailoring to cut of the jacket, accessories, shirt, tie, shoes, etc.

 

It's a somewhat different story, though, if someone is trying to go down the checklist (pleats, cuffs, tweed jacket) and the fit/tailoring, shirt/tie combo and accessories are all a little off or leave a little something to be desired.  At that point, the grandpa vibe can creep in big time.

EFV is a good example of someone who wears very high wasited pleated trousers without looking old. I use his pictures actually, as a demonstration when people speak of pleats and high waisted trousers as "old looking" and so far everyone concedes that it doesn't look old fashioned.

 

Anyway there's nothing wrong with looking "old" per se, anyway, I think the "grandpa" look is just someone who's body shape has changed since their more robust years and stuff generally doesn't fit well, especially for those who've shrunk, at least that's what I think of when people say "grandpa". If that stuff fit well, I doubt it's anywhere as much of an issue, even if details like lapel width and so on can come and go in popularity.

All he bought from us was the black shirt. We dropped it off at his hotel
