Unstructured, undarted, light as a feather, wears like a cardigan, good enough for JFK, made BB what it is today (??)  The list is long.


I am an English expat, it's true. But like a good many of us who fell among heathens, I went native a long time ago.

A bit more bold, because the sky is grey :

@bienluienapris  Your sprezz, for sure.

 

On a Dandy scale of 1 - 10, I'd rate that a '10'.    Doesn't just break the 'no more than one FU per fit' rule.  Smashes it. :satisfied:

Thanks you Pliny. Just for my knowledge, what is a FU ?

I'd say that both jacket and shirt are pretty bold. Love the fit, except maybe for the shoes - I prefer cap-toe monks. Still, you rocked it and I agree with @Pliny :)

Tweed Again:




(Patrick Johnson suit, Kamakura shirt, Uniqlo cardigan, Henry Carter tie, Drake's square Crockett and Jones shoes)
Loving the pairing of those boots with the suit, Gerry. Are they the C&J Skye?

Thanks! They're actually Crockett and Jones Marlow wingtip bluchers made for Ralph Lauren. I often wear my pair of Lindricks with this suit as well.

FU = 'Fuck you' = a stand-out item.  e.g.  saturated, non-canonical or tertiary colors;  high-contrast, out-scale or 'fancy' fabric patterns;  unseasonal, out-of-date or branded items; unconventional or cluttered stylistic details etc

Thanks you for the explanation :cheers:

I think it looks good. Just don't like the shoes (in this fit).

The geometry of the whole fit matters, of course, and, most importantly, the neck and head of the wearer should be considered.  Think Tom Wolfe when it comes to linen (and he’s certainly not “CBD”)  :).

 

That's why I mentioned more than one variable. Tall and stiff namely. If you had some carefree wrinkling (as in a linen shirt) or had something to echo the folds of the linen jacket (as in the waves of an OCBD collar) then the tallness might have mattered less, but there was no such factor. Also, when wearing a tall shirt collar the proportion of the yoke on the jacket should be considered as well. In this case it was, seemingly, not. 

 

Let's not compare oneself to Tom Wolfe unless you have the aplomb to match. :smarmy:

I agree with you on this. I like the fit of your jackets. I tend to err on the fuller side as well since too much waist suppression looks far worse than too little, all else being equal.

The scissoring is a front/back balance issue and looking at how you hold your shoulders it may well be that you have a sway back which is causing it. Not simple alterations, though.
