Ok, so, pretty good week...

 

Man, that would be an interesting book.  Just pix of pop stars in the Tommy Nutter stuff with behind-the-scenes insight into their tastes and inspirations.  Someone could do a book on Bowie alone and it would be worth buying.

As much as I am in favor of longer overcoats, you might consider bringing the hem of your new one up a couple of inches - mid-shin would, IMHO, be a more flattering look for you, but just my $.02 . . .

Congrats on the new coat and the new job, in any case.

Alright, first post. Apologies for the lack of natural light. Woke up late this morning and dashed out of the house, and of course it's dark when I leave the office.

Some notes: jacket actually fits perfectly, it's probably me just making a weird, subconscious posture. Tie I forgot to tighten up, but had made tail a tad longer because there's a cool sparrow printed at the very end. Left cuff caught on my watch, else it sits around 0.5" lower than jacket sleeve.

Thank you. I've considered it, definitely. It's a vintage piece of Polo Ralph Lauren, and I'm not super keen on changing the original aesthetic (I know, weird). With that being said, my other four topcoats are mid-shin and I do prefer that. I still feel it's quite wearable as-is, but I realize my opinion is a minority today.

I personally would want to see it in a proportionally correct (i.e., non-close-up-iphone) photo before giving you any advice on where to hem it.  Since you weren't asking for any: nice coat!  Maybe it's too long for you, maybe not.  

 

It's getting there, but I reserve judgment.

I really like the coat! But I agree with Master Crusty regarding the length.

post #31524 of 43873
You know, the length of the coat works for me because it demonstrates Sir Mannix's individuality. Clearly he knows impeccable tailoring based on the fit of his jackets and slacks.

Remember my tie you guys hated? Sometimes a man just has to put a little funk into his style to show he's not a clone, but understands the rules of cloning.

First cold days of winter.

Pictures taken in Stockholm a while back. Taken in front of a church, the sign says that God loves Stockholm. Not sure how they know that but I'll take their word for it. The SC is actually pretty generous around the waist, but looks tighter when I hold my arms like in the first pic.

 

SC: RRL (corduroy)

Shirt: Zegna

Tie: Borelli (7-fold)

PS: Finamore

Pants: Boss

Boots: Red Wings

Cap: Jonathan Richard

Plastic Watch: Triwa

New overcoat and new tie. The structure of the suri alpaca cloth of the overcoat works very well with the capybara gloves.

The association between gloves and coat is stunning.

Whether something fits well or not isn't really as subjective or tied to personal style as you seem to think of it. Yes, Mannix's jacket fits him well.  His overcoat appears to be too long however. 

Whether your tie or any other piece of clothing is either stylish or tasteful or not is of course somewhat more subjective.  More than likely your tastes, and your eye for fit will change for the better with some time spent here.
