Really nice; would like it even better with darker shoes. lol8[1].gif

Cox, I think those shoes are fine with the suit. That's about as dark as you want to go, though, before darker shoes would be necessary.

Shoes maybe a bit too high-contrast with the suit. I might wear antiqued light grey oxfords next time.

 

I like the linen suit and the shoes look just the right shade to me (if a bit too new).

But isn't it a rather chilly winter Down Under now?

 

Edit: and what's with the numbering?

I have no idea. Sorry mate wink.gif

Just a few quick ones...

 

The last isn't a study in fabrics so much as a test—to see if you can spot my old-school waffle tan.  

 

EDIT: one more shout-out to my tan linen/cotton Luxire shirt with the Broke and Bespoke collar. 

True FCOAT (Favorite Collar Of All Time)

I'm numbering my fits for my own benefit, to make them easier for me to find down the track (via the "all my posts" search function). I need to put the number at the top in order that it's visible in the search results.

 

Yeah, it's been chilly in Sydney, but brilliantly sunny during the day. Really superb weather actually. I wore an overcoat and gloves over that suit for the commute yesterday (fifteen minute walk through Hyde Park - so nice on a chilly sunny morning!).

 

Back in Melbourne as of last night and I doubt I'll be doing any linen-based fits here this week. Temperatures are similar but it's overcast and rainy.

@mcobinad , if you can get your fit issues properly sorted (and they are improving), you will certainly make sapeur. Your colour and texture game is already very good. And you clearly have an eye for quality - your stuff all looks really well made.

I think he likes when things fit him tightly like that.


I believe he's commented before that it's the look he's interested in. It's not what is SF approved, but I think he does it far better than most who try to do it.

Not really - don't wish to harp on this too much, but sugarbutch (I think) did an analysis with some :foo: lines to show where McO's suit was bowing and bunching unnaturally.

 

Tight fits are fine if they're very precisely tailored. Generally I would say that linen is not a good choice of cloth for a tight fitting garment - it needs to drape a little more "flowingly".

Koala I think you would benefit from a 1940s cut; broad, bold shoulders and high-rise full-cut trousers would balance things out nicely. Avoid pinstripes if you don't want the gangster comments but otherwise I could see it working:

 

maybe don't go this extreme but stronger, more extended shoulders and less tapered trousers would be my first step
