HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2417

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!

Thanks!

 

The cloth is from Fox Brothers' "Vintage Bolts" collection (although I don't know if collection is the right term). When I commissioned the jacket from Steed last summer, there were 10 meters of it available and it has since disappeared form their website. It's a 8-9oz worsted flannel. Fox has a blue and ecru stripe somewhere on their site, or at least it's been appearing in their Instagram feed. But not this one!

 

This was the first thing I've commissioned from Fox's vintage bolts. I have a couple of other things also in the works using other "end of bolt" fabrics.

Thank you. My guess would be that they are by C&J then. They look a bit similar to their "Sedgemoor 2" model, although that one is in suede:

If I see Andy's striped jacket one more time, I swear I'm going to have a seizure.

 

Please, people. Use the spoiler function.

So you think eight times on one page is too many?

 

Agree on the usage of the spoiler function, though.

Classic Daks check in a really nice fit. I'm not sure I fully understand the concept of coherence, but this look coherent to me.

To me this is all fine, but maybe it had been better with a lighter blue shirt; not so much to compliment the tie, but for that suit. (And I know you can do better PS than this.)

agreed

Why only the toecaps?
I really don't get this. If you're gonna get the polish out, why not shine the shoe, the whole shoe and nothing but the shoe?
