Now I am trying to imagine what that jacket would look like on me, heh. My true shoulder to shoulder with a soft/minimal shoulder is 18" and I am a 40R for chest, sleeves, and length (mostly, depending on maker).

This CW would go well with that jacket.

and I think this could be worn well into the fall (shibumi)

 

Thanks, Claghorn.  I just ordered the Shibumi.   Although I didn't mention it, I've also decided I need a few more brown ties, too, so it's perfect in that respect as well.  It'll work with a number of my jackets, so it kills a number of birds with one stone.

 

Cheers,

The best kind of buy is the deadly buy. Especially if it involves dead birds. Generally this is my philosophy...I buy to fill as many roles as possible. As long as I don't keep refilling the same roles, it works well. Though I do end up with a lot of shades of blue in terms of jackets.

 

Such as:

 

 

Got the fabric at a hefty discount from them as it was the last they had in stock and they were trying to move it :teach:

I have a few belts from Meermin. I usually pick them up when I order some shoes. They are great belts for a really low price.

I wonder if the first one is CBD. It looks somewhat casually to be wearing with suit. Tell me if I am wrong.

For what you wear, I'd go with the second. And if you do get a brown belt, it should be much, much darker. For the same reason, I think you should take the Hallam over the Westbourne.

I prefer the second one but if price is an issue then get the first one in black or dark brown.

@Claghorn 

Black belts with navy blue suits are fine but I wonder if brown will "pretty up" the CBD look. 

I already have a black Hallam and I am happy with it. Maybe I'll get the brown one now and get the brown Westbourne. 

I think going with Westbourne will diversify my shoe collection more just because it 'looks' different.

regular brown will be bad? Clag says it will be too brown. I am fine with that. 

Shoes and belt colours should match, right?

price is not an issue. 

 

If wife wants to shell out $5k on her master bedroom furniture with flowers on everything then I can do whatever with 'our' money.

Yeah, shoe and belt should remain reasonably close together for professional dress. They don't have to be exact but you "shouldn't" have a tan belt and dark brown shoes, and so on ...
