HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2244

@clarinetplayer I have just noticed your Dorothy Sayers quote.  I am pleased to say that I live in the small Essex town where she spent much of her later life in this lovely house - perhaps you know it:  My own house nearby is not quite so grand...

This is what I'm wearing today

So they are half-lined, which takes enough of the edge off for me to be able to wear them all day and while traveling, for example. All my jackets are fully lined and most of my trousers are either half- or fully-lined. As for this suit, the slightest breeze can be felt especially on my legs. It works as well as anything except possibly linen.


I had not seen that picture of Vox before. I somehow feel that I've joined the big time.

This suit is the first thing Steed made for me. Although the conventional wisdom hold true in that the first bespoke commission is a learning exercise, and if I had to do it over again I would change quite a bit about it (but I still wouldn't add cuffs), it is a fine and (I think) good-looking suit.

What would you change? Also, I'm not big fan of the shirt and tie together.

His body type is also of a substantial nature allowing him some room to get away with larger lapels. On a thin rail of a frame they would look very out of place. 

+1 See Seamless as an example of this.

I think there is a balance between the size of the man and the width of the lapel (and the width of your tie for that matter). Going too far either way will become a donation in a year or two.

The shirt is throwing me off, but I like the rest.

I'd eliminate the belt loops as I don't use them and change the front fastening. I'd put the rear suspender buttons on the outside of the waistband (I will probably have an alterations tailor do that soon anyway). Eliminate the "coin pocket" inside the waistband of the trousers. Have them lined from the outset. On the jacket I would change the configuration of the inside pockets. All fairly minor things that I think one only learns through experience of what works and what doesn't. That's about it.

How so?  Color is light blue (though my monitor and maybe yours are showing it in a lavender shade?) and fabric is Oxford cloth.

I'm a roller coaster, I'm an ocean, but I'm not a shore.

While I’m sure @Claghorn  and @upr_crust appreciate the royalties they get from your Chair Poses, I’m glad to see the return of the standing pose photo, since without it people can’t see how well your jackets fit you and how flatteringly cut they are for your physique.  Been top notch for a couple of months now.

 

Cheers,

Thank you sir.  Presence or absence of standing pose vs. sitting pose is determined entirely by the willingness of She Who Wields the Camera to participate, but I'll use your endorsement as leverage.

 

Crusty and Clags, your checks are in the mail.

I am going to miss your sitting down poses, man

37F in New York, but with a bit of layering the tweed works fine. Swapped the stock Grenson laces with some blue for pizzazz. Now I'm ready to head to BJ's, lol.
