I like this (uncharacteristically subdued!) ensemble a lot.  While I wish they were just a tiny bit longer, those moleskins are beautiful.  Do they really keep that crease (I’ve had less-than-satisfactory results with moleskin in that regard)?  And suede with moleskin is a great textural combination.

 

Cheers,

Yep.  This is after a day of wear.  They're from J. Crew via eBay.  I imagine they're quite old given the cut.  I had my tailor slim them some.  The material is quite thick and holds a crease well.  Thanks.

What cloth is the suit made from, may I ask? It's very luxurious.


Thanks a lot! We think that the cloth comes from the 60s. It is approx. 600g/running meter. The only label it carried was "Made in England".

Wondering if I went a little to far in the shirt/tie/jacket pairing. I wore light grey flannels and brown Strands on the bottom so nothing too fancy there. Re: the earlier subject of the DressedWell forum, I found that I had a few pictures on that thread as well, one was a pretty ghastly photography disaster, one was a jacket that just didn't fit right but was by no means embarrassing, and the other was a blue blazer with a grey wool tie that, although uninspired, did not seem horrible to me. Regardless, other than a comment on one of the jackets not fitting right, the critiques on that thread are not very constructive and tend to be rather demeaning or presumptuous of people's life conditions or mental status or self-worth. For instance, why was my combo so egregious? Constructive feedback would be nice and just posting pictures without any commentary isn't the best way to make people dress better. Though i am not sure that is the point of that thread.

Regardless, I hope I don't bring the quality down too much here. Enjoy your holiday those who celebrate.

I like everything but the shirt, Citan.

@chocsosa nice to see a fit where you're not looking particularly murdery.

Nice combo. I think that the marked shoulders work very well with tweed, falls neatly in a long Savile Row tradition. However, looks like your right shoulder is more structured (possibly even roped) than the left. Or is it just the light?

@Tom Miler, as soon as I saw those photos, I wondered whether that was a vintage fabric. They just don't weave 'em like that any more, do they!

 

Here's a suit I inherited from my father. I guess it's likely from the late 60s or early 70s. The cloth has similar colours and complexity to yours.

And from where, might you ask, was this wondrously complex fabric sourced?

 

 

 

The suit itself is from a Viennese tailoring house. My guess is that it was made as a bespoke piece for my father.

 

 

For your information, the suit is a two-piece, total weight 1.9kg. If there's (say) 3 metres of cloth in there, and allowing for the weight of lining and canvas, I guess the fabric weight would be around 500-550g/m2. Heavy and warm, certainly; but somehow it still breathes well.

Yes I do like how the shoulder works here. This is a different tailor than my other jackets, and this tailor tried to deal with my significant shoulder drop with more padding and roping, while the other one allows the jacket shoulder to conform with my slope/drop instead of adding more padding, so in this case you will see a bit more of it. They're two ways of dealing with a problem and presumably neither does it perfectly, but I don't mind it here at all, especially when I don't mind a stronger look here, especially with the hacking and ticket pockets. With softer shoulder and patch pockets perhaps the other method is more suitable.
