Thanks, you're free to think of a suitable award ;)

Actually, Bach would have been delighted. It was his constant struggle to get his music performed in the greater public. He'd be all for it!

Damnit, @Claghorn. Can you post a slightly less than perfect fit for once?

@An Acute Style

The buttons on that cardigan look familiar. From the Armoury? Who is the maker?

Great fits, gents.

Jackets with patterns that dense require extra contrast in pattern as far as I'm concerned. Interesting conversation in any case. Also, @in stitches
, where you been, bro!?!?

So does this mean you'd prefer neats (same as foulard/challis? Or no?) with solid jackets only? That would be the safest bet, it seems. Or maybe a faint Glen Plaid.

Spring is upon us. Breaking new shoes.

Some looks from the past days...

Panta NYC trousers (H&S Classic Flannel) and tie

Proper Cloth shirt
Drakes square via ET

 

The fit of the jacket is gorgeous.  I feel like the jacket is saying FU in a very subtle way.  A whisper.  I really like the square if it's cream.  The tie may be too busy with this jacket for me.  Yes, the pot calling the kettle...    

 

 

:) I'd like to hear that in a French accent, but I'd be afraid to wear the jacket out  -  could lead to uncomforatble faux pas  :embar:

Since the spring is back, cotton-kapok suit :

Quite the sedate look for my standards...still some playfullness, due to the three patterns.

 

The colours are all in the blue range...

Cardigan looks great, very comfortable. I'm envious. I think the low contrast between it and the trousers works, because of the well-used shoes and vest and general casualness of the outfit.
