Spring fleetingly came, then left us again...









...dodging rain, wind, sleet and the odd glimpse of a shiny thing!

You look like you were really leaning into the breeze in this shot! And yet, remaining impeccable! Well played!

The fit of this Ring jacket on you is pretty bad.

Thank you sir. Something more than a breeze, must be crazy smile.gif

It will hit 90+ in the valley today (and then the temperature will fall off a cliff, apparently, tomorrow), so the question was: which linen suit to wear today? So I went with this one (and a different Panama, too):

 

 


The tie is from Drake's in a 9cm width that they don't seem to make any more. Unless I just can't find my way around the Drake's website (which is entirely possible), all their ties seem to be 8cm.

 

Textures and all the other stuff (Click to show)

 


Suit: Bespoke Steed in Scabal Linen

Shirt: Proper Cloth in DJA Sea Island Cotton

Tie: Drake's

Square: Kent Wang

Shoes: Gaziano & Girling

Hat: Brent Black/Pamana Hats Of The Pacific

Excellent. Have you per chance read 'Our man in Havana' by Graham Greene or seen the film adaptation starring Alec Guinness? mwink[1].gif

Nice suit. It's gonna be hot today. Exquisite Trimmings sometimes stocks both 9 cm and 8 cm width Drake's. A Suitable Wardrobe used to, but with 62" length. Otherwise I think you're looking at custom from them.

Thank you. I read that many, many years ago. Haven't seen the film.

Thanks! I'll look more closely at the ET site. If I go custom, I would (and do) go with Sam Hober.

^ On the ET site, in the size field, there's an arrow that let's you select different widths, but it's easy to miss, since there's often only one size.

Previous posters have mentioned Spectre's car, Alec Guinness, and that it's hot in California (although it's only around 89F here).

Out today in the midday sun today having an Ebenezer Scrooge moment and seeing Marley's ghost.

Brooks Brothers (Marks & Sparks era) two button darted navy chalk tropical worsted two button suit and PPBD shirt, Hardy Amies tie, Allen-Edmonds shoes, and the seldom seen in this group "Victorian Politician Pose".


Shirts with wide stripes always remind me of the shirts that Bernard Hepton wore when he played Toby Esterhase in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" with Alec Guinness.  The stripes on the shirt, as well as the chalk stripes on the suit, show up better in this picture.

I've been trying to find that series on Netflix, Amazon, or, really, any streaming service to no avail. I think the pacing of the TV series was a much better fit to Le Carré's book than the 2011 movie.
