What a great suit!

Last days of heavy wool and cardigans in Sweden (I hope).

I am really happy with my latest purchase - a sleeveless purple cashmere cardigan from Loro Piana. 

The rest:
SC - Raffaele Caruso
Shirt - Gutteridge
Tie - Corneliani



Not shown:
Brown flannel trousers by Luxire (Minnis 0307)
Purple socs and cordovan cap toes by C&J

Great fit, among your very best.

But as a fellow Swede I am surprised by your unfounded optimism. You know very well that there will be a week of snow and cold weather in April!

, where you been, bro!?!?

AAS did not, but mcfox did.

Scale definitely plays into perceived "busy-ness," though. So whether or not it's stated, it's a factor.

If I wanted to play the role of art professor, I wouldn't let a student call something "busy" without explaining what makes it busy. It's a nebulous word.

That's true but the implication in my mind wasn't that scale (or density as well) wasn't a factor, but rather that they could still be different between the jacket and the tie and not mesh quite right. There would need to be still more difference for it took look right to me. Completely agreed that "busy" is a nebulous word and I'm not even sure that I am capturing AAS's meaning, but it is certainly how I took it.

 

@Andy57 that jacket looks weirdly long. Love your stylistic choices, though.

Agreed with Caustic, though everything else is exceptional, and I generally dislike repp striped grenadines.

post #34960 of 43952

Well, dropped in and saw a nice productive discussion going on. Very nice!

 

Thought I would post some data, since it's good to have a set of fits to take apart. So by all means carry on on Mursquirl's fit here (don't want to co-opt that discussion) , but see this

For data points to consider/discuss on the issue of business, density, repetition and so forth.

Since we are talking scales an patterns, I incidentally wore four patterns today. I generally prefer two or three, and with a patterned jacket, I'd wear a solid shirt.

Looks really good, Clags.

post #34963 of 43952
Yeah I like that a lot, Clags. Is it a new jacket?
post #34964 of 43952

Cool enough for a chunky cardigan today.  Yea, spring.  Shirt is light blue.  Pant and cardi are pretty similar in color.  I wore a dark brown shoes and vest to break it up a bit.

@Gerry Nelson damn, just damn. That is perfect. Is that the W Bill Donegal? Screw it if LA is too warm for a full on Donegal suit...I will have something like this in my arsenal!
 
@The Noodles seriously, nobody in their right mind thinks that POW looks bad.

 

@Pliny deets on the tie? Is that the 11 oz (I think) Lesser fabric?

 

Tie is a bottle green wool twill from Sam Hober

Suit is an 11 oz twill.  Carlo Barbera for H Lesser
