Ah, I see. I must have misinterpreted your previous statement then. I take it that even if you are a bit over dressed compared to everyone else that it isn't by that much.


On the other hand, I'm wildly overdressed most all the time.

I don't have a solid grey SC, but I do have several that are grey. I find different shades of blue (including the oft derided navy) can be good matches. With a plain grey like that, I would not do navy, but lighter shades than that would look good to my mind. I would also concur with some previous posters that a cream-to-tan range of trousers would also probably work quite well.

Telling by the number of thumbs given, you do seem to have appreciated my postings lately. Thanks, gentlemen. 

Also: X-Post from the challenge, doing some 1920s british gangster.

That spread collar is much more flattering on you than your button down collars, and this particular one interacts nicely with the gorge of the jacket.  (I do wish the points were just a smidgen longer.)

 

Like you, I’ve a got a long neck and a narrow face.  Button down collars, if worn with a tie, just aren’t optimum for us (worn without a tie and unbuttoned they can be fine in a casual context).

 

Cheers,

This'll set the cat among the pigeons...

 

 

 

The usual extras (Click to show)

 


Jacket: Bespoke Steed from a Fox Brothers vintage bolt of lightweight flannel

Shirt: Proper Cloth

Tie: Drake's

Square: Put This On

Trousers: Bespoke Hemrajani

Shoes: Brooks Brothers

Watch: Omega Seamaster 007 Spectre limited edition

 

I know this jacket will horrify some people, but that's okay. Regardless of what you think of the stripes or the color, it is an absolute tour de force of tailoring. It is made in Steed's signature soft tailoring style, fully canvassed, fully lined, soft shoulder. And it is as light as a feather. It weighs virtually nothing and feels like a gossamer when I put it on.

 

It still needs some tweaks, though. It has a one-piece back that isn't quite right and will get some corrective attention when I'm in the UK next month. And I think it will be more at home in a more casual context, possibly without a tie, worn with a linen shirt or a broadcloth popover and cricket whites. But I wanted to experiment today with a tie and grey trousers. And spectators, of course!

I only have four boating Blazers Andy!

I definitely agree that this looks like you came home from work, took off your suit jacket and put on your blazer. Please post again with more boating-blazer-friendly accompanying items to show it off in a more true context. I wear mine with cotton or linen trousers and driving mocs.

Dang! One more than me. Actually, this was taken on my way to work this morning. I think this jacket cries out for spectators or white bucks.
