The brown pinstripe is casual?  Be interesting to see the full fit. I think it'd look like you were wearing a suit but were forced to change cos u spilt gravy on your pants. Or something.  

I don't recall ever seeing matching vest and jacket that are not part of a suit, and the pins seal the deal.  The full suit would look pretty cool.

Until we see a full fit, it's all theoretical. And unfortunately, theoretically, it's not working. I've never seen a matching vest/jacket sold independently of a suit (though there might be some along the lines of strollers and such) and I've never seen a matching jacket/vest look good absent the trousers.

But I've seen plenty of fits that worked despite of theory and plenty of fits that failed to work where theoretically they should.

Pinstripes aren't casual, but heavy flannel nailhead in country colors is pretty casual stuff, stripe or not. But yes, this probably had pants some time in the '70s. This coat was well-liked on its own a few weeks ago, so I reckon I'm right in my assessment that it's not inherently too formal to work without matching trousers.

 

I've included the fly-as-hell inspiration for the rig, which will I think is a clue that at this point I don't take things too seriously.

 

But, really, there is no decorum today (thank god), so the purpose of "rules" are to allow us to make informed decisions.

Ah the Seventies.  The decade that good taste forgot.  Seemed to work for him tho.

Not giving you much to work with but a Carolina Herrera suit. Mastai ferreti blue shirt. Tom ford navy knit tie and Tom ford brogue boots in dark brown.

First time I'd worn the suit and it turned out pretty well.

Amen. I've decided to shave mine for a while, at least until the trend dies a little bit. Surely I don't want to be associated with the hipster movement.

@YRR92 , it worked for that guy because his suit is checked. When I look at the pictures of the jacket from before, the first one (car) I assumed you were wearing matching pants. The second, I didn't know it was the same jacket, didn't realize it was striped, and thought it was just a regular tweed. In general, I just don't think striped single pieces (outside of shirts and ties) work well. If you've got a striped top, you need a striped bottom. So I guess what I'm saying is, you need to see a dominatrix.

 

 

All that said, If you like it, fuck em.

I can never get used to my beard. That's why I kill it whenever it gets 2 weeks old.

Call me weird, but I love shaving. Then again, I also love ironing my shirts. Right then, I'm a certified freak. shog[1].gif
