Thank you for all the thumbs yesterday. I'm very grateful and humble for that. The main contributor is the cutter, the always very kind and a true gentleman, mr Thomas Mahon.
My newest ebay thrift and the fit is very good. It´s more a sportscoat for colder days, so today should be the last day to wear this coat for a longer time.

You're a master at getting decent fits of the ebay. Love the cloth on that jacket
(Once I get past my pet loathing for stiff, pagoda-like shoulders). That tie/suit color combo is awsm. Some combos just look more 'grown-up' than others.
But think it calls for a darker, more business-y tie.
I disagree. I think the strong stripes are business-y enough that they need a softening touch, especially given that it's a hard-finished, lightweight worsted. In a flannel, then I could see a darker tie.
Sugarbutch has it right about the cut of O/O's clothes, but Ianiceman has it right about the ludicrous casual stuff he'd post.
Gmm, I think it's a venal sin to go sockless with that navy blazer rig. I think it's a bit vulgar to go sockless in wool trousers (I think I stole that idea from John Tinseth, though maybe not), but it's a rule that has stood me in good stead.
