One thing which struck me during a visit to Seoul a few years ago was the number of journeymen wearing highly reflective suits. Seemed to be a strong local fashion.

 

Personally, I'm not a huge fan, and it would give me pause when considering blends with mohair in them. Although I guess it depends on many factors.

 

This is another view of @spectre's suit which is more indicative of how it looks in normal light:

Tie - JAB
Cufflinks - London Badge & Button Co.
PS - RLPL
Braces - Trafalgar, via Barney's NYC

Spectre's suit looks great here. That set of wheels behind him ain't bad either.

 

Clearly the sheen in that previous photo was some trick of the light.

@Sander, I can't remember you ever wearing a suit that I didn't want for myself. Even your pinstripes.

Same for me... until I bought another tie hanger. Then another. I did a recent cull and I still have nearly 100 ties.

Yeah, I'm fluent in google translate! Thanks, it's from Sartoria Corcos, but I don't know much about the cloth except that Kotaro found it in a cloth shop somewhere after I had exhausted his 10000 swatch books.

Thanks; so normally, you're not a fan of stripes? Or just pinstripes?

Pinstripes suits I'm not usually a fan of. Doesn't mean I'm never a fan, it's just that I have seen more bad pinstripes than good ones. Yours are good, of course. If I recall, your partner had one made in the same fabric that looked good as well, though I liked yours a little better.

Ah, I see. "Normal" pinstripes I'm also not a big fan of, chalk, track and rope stripes are a different thing though. Also I like them a little wider and more visible than on the super-conservative models you usually find otr, so that's a little tricky.
