It has been a while. Tweed, flannels and shirt by @luxire impressive work they are putting out these days. 

 

Best, DL-

When it comes to wearing flannel trousers whether all-season or heavy weight, are the only sportcoat options flannel, tweed, or even cotton? I'm assuming worsted or twill wool is out.

I'd rather ask why you wanted worsted or twill wool sportcoats in the first place.

Nothing wrong with, say, some of those 10-oz worsted jacketings with lightweight flannel trousers (what's that one bunch called? Alsport or something?). With heavy flannel, it seems to me a heavier cloth would be a better match. But with a worsted flannel, or maybe even a light-weight woollen one, it would be fine.

 

And nothing wrong with a twill, either. Not a suiting twill, but I have seen lovely navy blazers in cavalry twill, not to mention various tweeds which are technically a twill weave.

 

But don't wear a suiting as a sportcoat.

 

And I'm not crazy about flannel trousers with corduroy or moleskin jackets. Cotton twill jackets always look like summer wear to me, and flannels in summer are only defensible if you're playing by '30s rules, in which case a thin cotton jacket is for waiters.

I appreciate your insight. All of my worsted and twill wools are made up of full suits and I rarely break them up except for one suit which has patch pockets. I frequently also wear odd trousers sans a sportcoat but I wanted to see what my options were. Thank you sir!

Murls not sure if Murls or Pliny.....

Regardless well done. Too bad my selfies arent as good haha

Braddock, I was ambivalent about the heavily textured tie with your suit, but the chocolate suede shoes give just enough harmony to balance it out for me.

David Lane, are you interested in discussing fit (saw your robopose in the Luxire thread)? If so, I think it could be an illuminating discussion for many.

Very inspiring outfit. I love the use of purple socks here.

Agreed @SYCSYC, @Murlsquirl got a great story about those gold spun chaussettes!
