HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1144

I'd hate to wear a suit 7 days a week.

I appreciate the feedback!

From what I can see here, thumb (up) on SC+ pants combo. Tie & PS combo not at all bad, just a bit matchy by "SF standards". In the real world it probably trumps about 98% of those who even attempt to incorporate a PS. (How is it that a certain subset still thinks that a square and tie in identical fabric is a good look? Is this more prevalent with network sports analysts, or is it as common among the general populace?)

 SF member @jerrybrowne  commissioned the Shetland cloth for this SC in a special run from Hunters of Brora.  Real hairy + great design IMO

TV fold P.S. will be incorporated

I'm sure this will be seen as SF heresy by many, but since you asked, my OPINION is whatever you get, don't get that three button jacket pressed to two again. It's a sure fire way to guarantee a young fella like you will look like an old man. Either get a natural two button jacket or a three button with some roll. My $0.02!

I'm recycling yesterday attire for today, yesterday's activities consisting of an early visit to the Museum of Modern Art, for the Bjork show, then looking at property to buy (four open houses - two before lunch, and two after). At the last open house, the agent remembered us from a previous showing, noting that my partner and I were incredibly well-dressed for a Sunday afternoon. I'll let you all judge for yourselves.

Sports jacket - Chester Barrie, via Austin Reed, London
Shirt & trousers - BB
Bow tie - Paul Stuart
PS - Ashear
Shoes - Paul Stuart
Overcoat & scarf - BB
Cap - Christy's, via Thomas Farthing, London

To make up for the lack of close-up shot of jacket/shirt/tie/PS, a "lifestyle" photo from the trip to Vienna - back courtyard of the Kunst Haus Wien, designed by Austrian artist Friedenreich Hundertwasser (and yes, for those with eagle eyes, those are jeans that I'm wearing).

Thanks mate. I'm not actually sure off the top of my head. It's a Huddersfield wool - quite light 9 or 10 oz.

Gotta beautiful sheen to it.  Love those gunmetal greys.
