Funds are not allowing anything at all for me this year, apart from things I've already commissioned and paid for...

 

... which luckily includes a three-piece grey flannel pinstripe! ;)

This outfit says, "I am obsessed with clothing."

 

It also says 'I dig the Royal Artillery design'.  re tie design, this Richard James looks Post Imperial to me, or does the large soft squares design predate Tira?

The Moonbeam looks great. Have something similar on the way.

Whoever it is though, they have a great eye. The shots are all really dynamic, beautifully lit and framed, and like all good photography, the images tell a story.

 

I'm a bit late to this discussion and it's probably been canvassed already, but I'm pretty sure that I remember that when he was here previously (before he took a break from posting on SF and used Tumblr instead), Victor said that his photographer at that time was the son of his tailor and that the son was a professional photographer. I don't know if it's still the same guy taking the pictures.

Thanks for the thumbs yesterday.  I was surprised you guys liked it to be honest.  I thought it was a bit busy and some of the colors were a bit too vibrant together.  

 

I got these pants back from the tailor, but he didn't slim the thighs like I though he would.  I tried to wear them without this change, but I will definitely be taking them back.

A bit hard to tell from these pictures, but probably yes. What exactly do you mean by "suppressed through the quarters"?

And I think in this combination there is not enough contrast between jacket and trousers. I'd take dark grey or cream trousers instead.

Nice!

Today's outfit. Just got these trousers back from a tailor. Still trying to figure out what the weave on this thing is :confused:

 

P/S: Yeah I know, the jacket collar sucks. I got it before my SF enlightenment. 

 

 

post #18508 of 43877

I cant tell from the picture, but If its a diagonal it's probably a twill or a pick and pick.  If not, probably eiter a plain weave or a hopsack (2 x 2 warp and weft).

Shirt - Thomas Pink
Tie - Hackett, London
Cufflinks - SFA
Braces - Paul Stuart
Shoes - Florsheim Royal Imperial (Magnanni)

Very nice, @Anden! Being a fan of (micro) houndstooth shirts myself, could you post a close up pic and perhaps share a ref. number?
