I looked online and I must confess that I did like the design they are putting out. I am curious to know what the fit will be like on me but that will only be ascertained when I visit their store and try a couple. I saw that they have two stores in London. smile.gif

Honestly, I don't know. shog[1].gif That outfit received bucket loads of compliments yesterday and I took time to ask fashion aficionados (knowledgeable fashion enthusiasts) if the jacket fit was proportionate, no single one of them pointed to the contrary. They all thought the jacket was amazing and fit was spot on.

 

Like I said, the problem is your biceps. I mean, it's not really a problem because your biceps are awesome. But it is a problem because they are so much bigger, proportionally, to your torso. It's just a fact of being fit like you are. You probably could have gone 3 sizes up and your arms would still be bulging out of your sleeves. That's why I suggested MTM or bespoke. You can get something that fits your torso and with extra large sleeves so you don't look like the hulk about to bust out of of your jacket.

With boring brown penny loafers. Apologize for photo quality and also overly narrow lapels. Think it's probably okay tieless though.

 

I don't mind narrower lapels on you. Maybe not quite that narrow, but I think thin physique allows for them just fine.

I think this safary jacket is wearable in city, it's the first time i tried it. I've two or three real safary jacket, but it's impossible to wear it here, only for the Djebel etc... :satisfied:

IMO it is a casual item, absolutely no need to wear a tie in that fashion. The bright blue pants and field jacket are in total dischord with the conservatively striped shirt and tie. Not sure what you were going for here. It seems like sometimes people will try to wear a tie even when it is totally unnecessary.

I Agree with you, there is no need to wear a tie, but i don't think it's impossible to wear a tie with this kind of safari jacket. Barbour is a casual jacket and it's possible to wear a tie with. When i'm in africa i wear a much more casual field jacket and don't wear tie with, i'll probably sometimes don't wear a tie with this one in linen. However during the last century, it was usual to wear safari jacket with a tie. The blue cotton trousers is casual, the grenadine shantung tie is not so businessy so i don't think there is really a clash between business attire and casual attire in this outfit.
