Just got this back from the tailor, I would do a shoe shot, but sadly the pants came out too short. Let me know what you guys think its my first time trying this suit on.

Shirt = Luxire
Tie = Canali
Suit = Ring Jacket
Superb!

Agreed. It's not anything I would have thought of putting together, but I like it.

@EFV As much as I generally like Crat's fits, this one doesn't work for me. I think the whole look is off. To me, the tie, shirt and definitely the shoes are far too informal for that suit. Nothing against him, though.

and you'll not meet two finer and more charming gentlemen

If Upr +1 are in town then don't miss the opportunity biggrin.gif

Superb and aspirational for me except for one jarring note: the belt.

Thats an interesting one. Here in London I see many people wearing loafers with suits so its not out of the ordinary. How it looks depends very much on the loafers imo but yes, toe-cap oxfords would have been the safer choice.

The late, great racehorse trainer Sir Henry Cecil made a particular speciality of this.  When I used to go racing a lot Henry stood out as perfectly dressed, in a crowded field.  The English toff country look that Ralph Lauren and various Italians have been seeking to copy and market for the last forty years came from him and his ilk.  His obituaries all mentioned his dandyisme and he himself said that he could happily spend all week shopping.  

 

He'll get no love on SF (and the emaciated photos of him whilst he was suffering from cancer are sadly all too prominent when searching Google Images) but in the flesh (and wool and cotton and silk and shoeleather) he was marvellously elegant.  Perhaps mainly because of his figure, his achievements, his manners, carriage, kindness and so on but he was the bee's knees.  If true individual style is knowing how to bend the rules *just* too far then Sir Henry had it in spades, but alas it doesn't come across so much in the photographs.

First time ever wearing a bowtie (apart from white tie of course). Trying to do it in as much of a non-hipster way as possible, but I'm not sure I'm succeeding.... Especially since my wife's reaction this morning was laughter followed by comments about school boys shog[1].gif

To end the week, my warmest suit and coat, as it's some -12C/10F outside. Today's shoes are shown only because they were a bargain found on my trip to London - Crockett & Jones, on a closeout at Ede & Ravenscroft - 150 GBP instead of the normal retail 380 GBP. Unhappily, with six inches of slush in the street, I'll be wearing hiking boots with today's rig instead of C & J. shog[1].gif

Suit - BBGF
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - BB
PS - Ashear
Cufflinks - BB
Vintage watch chain
Shoes - C & J Edgwares
Overcoat - BB
Scarf - Olde England, Beauchamp Place, London, circa 1984
Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center

Lifestyle photos - both from the Sacher Hotel. The casual shot is from the Cafe Sacher, and I'm eating a Boehmische Leiwanden (pancakes with stewed plums, a plum sorbet, whipped cream, and a chocolate). The more formal shot is from the Restaurant Anna Sacher, and the dish is pigeon. Hope that you enjoy.

I believe I also had the pleasure at the last SF trunk show. Your shared interest in classic men's clothing was clearly in evidence.

Is Cafe Sacher the one with the extremely high ceiling?

Pingson, that looks very nice indeed. I don't think you're likely to be mistaken for a hipster. You've got the gravitas to wear a bow.

I do not remember that the Cafe Sacher had extremely high ceilings, but we were sat in a smaller section of the cafe - perhaps the main section of the cafe is more high-ceilinged. The ceilings were certainly not low - enough room for crystal chandeliers without them being in the way of the clientele.
