Thank you both. Their is actually quite a bit of extra fabric through the chest and waist but it all sits in the back. I think that the balance may be off and I hope my tailor can fix.

From the perspective of someone in the business, arts administrators walk on eggshells trying to get butts in seats, so any sort of dress code is out of the question. This is the point of the "Last Night at the Met" blog... "Hey look we're not all stuffy blue hairs and Mr. Monopoly types!"

Just read the comments on this blog post.

Love the jacket! What is it? And normally, I think people would say the shirt pattern is too large in scale to be worn with a tie, but this informal outfit totally asks for it IMO. Really nice.

 

Thanks you Sacafotos, i found this jacket in a vintage shop, the brand is Lakeland Sportswear, dont't know so much about this brand, but i found some 50's advertising from them on internet, when I do some research. I think, and I'm sure that wearing a tie with a tattersall shirt like that is something pretty classic.

either the cream vest or the striped pants aren't working for me. Can't put my finger on which, but again, my own preference and I don't think the outfit is off in any way.

It's a stroller. The pieces are not very negotiable.

I trust what is seen on top of trousers, is the waistcoat and not a belt buckle bigstar[1].gif

This is pretty much what I had assumed. Although the Civic has been saying that ticket sales continue to be healthy, they are saying that they have been slower to sell. That can have its advantages for me, since I can swoop in and subscribe to good seats. Used to be the good ones were taken up every year by people who had been subscribers for 10+ years.

The presence of the great lady is still felt throughout the town, with a bronze statue (of her and her cat)  opposite her former house and a Library, mews court development and housing estate all named after her.

Well.. I agree with you, but there is some room for options (had you gone for  oxford gray or POW pants for instance). The ivory/cream is a classic waistcoat though

That's why I said "not very" instead of "not at all".
