This raises a question for me, and I will admit I only skimmed the first couple of pages, but does anyone go back and look at previous weeks? I periodically go back to find a fit that I found particularly inspirational and find that numbers continue to slowly trickle up for a surprisingly long time.

I've managed to acquire a few over the last couple of months, and could probably send one your way without even missing it. Decent quality; not Liberty of London or anything. Ping me if you want me to take a few shots. Not sure what the shipping would be to Korea....

As for payment, just help me get a bespoke 3 piece donegal tweed from BnT

Am I allowed to ask a question? SB's fit with the sand trou and the gray SC. I like the top half very, very much. But the bottom half ... not so much. I thought the trou were a little too saturated for the rest, and the shoes a bit too informal with a tie. The trou also seemed like chinos/cotton, and I've tended not to think of of cotton with wool. But the consensus would seem to be otherwise. Can folks share what they thought worked?
While I'm opening my big, fat yap, I may as well share that, among that bunch, I wasn't a huge fan of the weave of Seamster's tie and may never get used to Gianni's choice of accessories (which I understand is pretty rich coming from me, but oh well).
Also, Clags, I may actually be in love with that cream/rust square of yours.

Yes. I like it, but it actually saddens me that it is included in the list. It didn't deserve 20 thumbs in my opinion. But I have a horrible love of pattern pants and I don't have any flannel odd jackets, which I think would've been best with those pants. If I win this week's Friday Challenge, I may declare a pattern pants challenge for the next week.

 

Also, do you have a picture of that burgundy macclesfield? The picture on the Hober site is far from flattering.

and thanks for getting my post in there, babi. <3

Yup. Broke the rules a little bit. Don't tell anyone. Folks need to take their medicine. I'm glad Mr. Moo posted.

Absolutely send me a few pictures. Perhaps we can work out some sort of tie exchange. As far as B&T, I think it can be arranged. I know tchoy gets his through a middle man, having never been their in person, and it looks damn good. So if you're serious, let me know. I'm doing an interview/write up for SF with them in a few weeks (as well as getting another jacket)

I share that love. Would enjoy that challenge.

PM incoming.

MF, I think a wider leg would suit your body type much better.

Agreed, my quads are too big from all dem squatz for these 8" leg openings. Unfortunately, I haven't found a RTW brand in my price range that has wider legs, so this will have to do. If anyone knows a brand that has wider legs and a similar construction as suitsupply for max $500 I'd be very happy!

 

I think the size of my feet also plays an important role. You can see clearly in this picture that my UK10 feet need at least an 8.25" leg opening:

Anyway, that suit cerruti is wearing looks like a vintage lesser I have. Easily my most FU suit. I don't think I've worn it in the last five years. Sigh.

Looking more closely, though, it's not the same cloth. His is more F-U than mine.
I have the brown version of that (not sure which is yours). It remains unfunded since there is no one I need to give the finger to at the moment.

it's not a Macc, it's a print:

Hober has it listed as Macclesfield. Regardless, a bit too much sheen for my taste, but lovely nonetheless.

post #370 of 2070
It's really not shiney, that's the flash. Without flash, it won't shine, but the colors won't be true either. It's no shinier than any other Cappelli/Marinella silk, which is to say, quite dry overall.

Whelp, in which case, I'm sold.

 

Edit: But wife was not.

Additional data: The pants aren't actually quite that saturated. They are a luxe chino fabric, unlike other chinos I've come across. The jacket is cotton as well, and it has a very soft hand like the pants. The tie is a very matte wool. The shirt is chambray. The chukkas are calf and a fairly refined last.

Not trying to convince you of its soundness, just giving more info for your consideration.
