Yes, pretty much, and normally in the country vibe e.g. Tattersall or textured, or plain white, cords/coloured jeans or chinos, maybe a tweed jacket.

Looking for a versatile winter tweed. This jacket, yay or nay?
post #35778 of 37392

Yes to the jacket. No to the shirt.

+1

 

I like the jacket a lot.  The shirt, maybe he can pull off but it's pretty niche i-gent to go full chambray with tweed imho.  I like the shirt too, just not here, not for me.  

 

And for that matter, just as the shirt is jarring, so is the the city slicker tie.  Swap out a nice oxford weave, herringbone, flannel or similar shirt - probably a staple solid - and a knit tie or one of those cuddly woolly numbers and we're right on the money.  Or no tie at all for that matter.  

 

The square works!

Ignore the chambray in the pic above. And this dog tie. Actually scrap that, I like the dog tie

The jacket is cool.

I really don't think you can go wrong with the Jacket.

 

As far as tweeds go the pattern, scale and color combination are pretty traditional. I am pretty sure there is a swatch in the Johnston's of Elgin Estate Tweed book (not cloth book...but actual book) that is nearly identical to this Abraham moon version. 

 

You can wear it with plenty of odd trousers...especially flannels, twills, cords & moleskins. 

 

If I didn't have so many damned things in the works I'd go for it too.

WHat are your thoughts on polo shirts with button down colors?

As long as the collar is a reasonable size (ie not ridiculously small, as is the unfortunate trend nowadays), then I like them.

 

I bought a few button-down collar polo shirts from Uniqlo two or three years ago and they're holding up well and get a lot of wear in summer.

 

The collars are made from the same fabric as the body of the shirt and so they don't stretch and curl like the traditional polo shirt collar tends to do, and the button-down style helps the collar to stand up a bit, too.

Agree. Purple socks and suede loafers is just so good!

Kopped the jacket, ya'll're a bunch of enablers

You know you love it.  You only come here for the pain.
