Who makes that jacket? The lapels look different to your usual stuff. They're a bit slimmer perhaps, but there's also something else that I can't put my finger on.

Very nice @Stefan88. Effortlessly elegant.

I dig how the breast pocket is made: high on the torso, straight and covered by the lapel.

I'm going for something like this for my wedding suit.

I think the comment about the shirt stripes is fair, but from a conversational distance the shirt reads more "blue" than "striped," and as such the color is a great match. I totally get the logic about the density, though.

I sometimes wear stuff that I end up changing my mind about later in the day, when I've had more time to look at it under natural light and see other colors on people that might spark my imagination. Thats how I iterate the outfit.

Like the olive paisley tie and the Formosa and striped shirt. I think I'll try it next time keeping the focus on the jacket's patterns.

Nice jacket, @justinkapur

I've been leaning towards hanks that read noticeably lighter than my ties or my coats. In this case, they're very similar in terms of saturation and value – so even though the colors work, the distribution of color isn't quite my steeze. If the coat were darker, it might balance things out better – or if the ground of the tie were a bit darker.

 

@Nelton

 

 

Are you tying a double four-in-hand with the wool knits? The knots look a little big. I find I have to knot my wool knits a bit tighter that my woven ties to get the knot to be a size I like. They're all very elegant choices, though.

 

I'm also less than convinced by some of the tailoring: that first suit has awfully tight sleeves, the second seems a bit off in the sleeves and trousers, and the last coat seems a bit tight – and is that a gray flannel jacket worn as a seperate? Because it really would look more at home as a suit. The fit stuff is kinda letting down the good things about your rigs: the color, pattern, and texture combinations are all pretty good, and your shoe choices are quite stylish.

 

@Claghorn

 

You wear that white BD well.

It's supposed to be 61 today in Denver! The lack of contrast between my trousers and blazer was purposefully done, as I like the subtlety. The dog wanted to get in the last pic. satisfied.gif Have a great Saturday.

@YRR92 Thanks for the advice with the tie! I just could not get it to knot the way I wanted it. I was doing a four-in-hand. The first and third suits are the same, I think the lighting just makes them appear different. I picked it up from Hackett when I was in Bicester Village recently, it was very cheap which is why I pulled the trigger and the fabric feels great. How much work with the tailor do you reckon it would need, just the sleeves let out and I could do with a bit more room as it is quite tight when buttoned and I think it pulls slightly which you can see from the photos? Moreover, is the middle suit (I bought it when I was a bit fatter...) worth getting tailored as I anticipate it being quite expensive and while I like the suit I don't love it enough to justify spending another £100 on making it look perfect.

What are your thoughts?

Cheers,

Nick

Looks like Army/military issue though I could be wrong.
