Mine is Caruso.  I wish it were about 1cm longer, but otherwise am very pleased with it.

Maiden voyage for a new sc. I don't like logos at all but I have maintained the same tradition every time I have bought Isaia: the lapel pin stays on the first time I wear it, then never again.

 

SC & Shirt: Isaia

Tie: Vanda (rust), Isaia (beige)

PS: Kimber (pastels), Cucinelli (red squares)

Pants: Berg & Berg

For what it's worth, I think I like the Isaia/Cuci combo better than the Vanda/Kimber with that SC. And the jacket is amazing.

Whatever the case, the pattern on your suit seems so faint that even fairly up close it is hard to notice, giving the impression that only the tie and PS have any pattern to them. I subscribe to the notion that if one wears only two patterns, they should not exist on the tie and PS. It has the same effect as a matching tie and PS although not nearly as gauche (it will work in rare occasions, however. Matching never will). 

Thanks.

 

Here's today. If I could take an inch of spread out and mail it to @blekit I probably would.

 

I think I'm going to have these pants tapered slightly from the knee down.

 

Brooksgate suit/Hawes & Curtis tie/Sante De Chio shirt (thanks @nerdykarim)/no-name pocket square (thanks @drlivingston)/AE Park Aves (thanks AAAC poster Dmontez).

Since I've got a moment or three... That needs a solid colored shirt, or at least something with a pattern that doesn't so closely match the suit. There is a principle of pattern matching that I adhere to which says scale and density should contrast. Both the scale, and density, of the shirt and suit patterns are nearly the same. A bengal stripe might have gone well here, but a solid would have been ideal. I really like everything else. Including the PS.

Thanks. I am familiar with that principle, but even with it in mind I made the call that this shirt looked alright. Less sure about that now, probably won't repeat it.

Good evening everyone such lovey fits and colors today hopefully I can contribute to a great batch today. New sportcoat I feel finally admitting I need to size up has led me to purchase coats that flatter my natural figure a bit more. Also apologies for the jeans I found a rather sizeable stain on my flannels and took them to the cleaners and didn't have another ready.
