I know my shirt sleeves are short and trousers probably a bit too much break.

Welcome! Outstanding first post. I agree with you on the sleeves and trousers.

The thing I'd try to work on is the amount of contrast between the jacket and trousers -- they are a medium greyish blue and a medium grey. The eye finds low contrast kind of unsettling; maybe try those trousers with a navy jacket or that jacket with a light neutral (tan/stone/etc).

Cheers and welcome again.

Yes.  As CruzAzul suggests, other factors being equal odd jacket/trouser combinations benefit from a contrast in shade between the two, so the brain of the observer doesn't have to struggle to figure out whether it's looking at a suit or not.    Here's your (otherwise excellent) outfit converted to gray scale to make the point clear:

 

 

I hope this helps.

Vacationing in Sardinia (you see how smoothly I got that in there!) so no opportunity to post anything new. These pics are a few months old. Tweed Country Sports (a store in Stockholm for those who dont know them) had a few ties made in Fox's lightest flannel. Works very nicely as a tie.

SC: Isaia
Shirt: Inglese
Tie: Fox flannel
PS: Bigi Cravatte
Pants: Berg & Berg

That's what she said.

I'm European and therefore, de facto, a communist of course. But the whole throwing shade on Madras fabrics have only resulted in me realising that I desperately need a Madras jacket. So a question to the "muricans" in the forum: who does them best? Should one go with RL or are there better options? (I can tell you upfront that I will not have a bespoke Madras jacket made...).

From Friday: I heard it was 3/2 sack jacket week.  (Luckily, it was cold enough to justify some heavy tweed). 

 

 

 

 

From today: nearly tie twins with Ac2.  Let's call my expression "bemused," because "derpy" isn't kind.

Thunder, glad to know your shoes aren't the only impressive part of your wardrobe. Like the look, and love the tie. While I think there is a point (albeit not a very compelling one, in my estimation) about the degree of contrast, I think the b/w filter makes the shades seem farrrrrrr more alike than they really are. Obviously, that's the point, but it creates a skewed perspective. In my view, anyone who confused that for a suit in real life ought worry far more about their eyesight than your clothes. Very good first fit pic...which Vanda square is it?

Academic, what the heck is the fabric on the SC? That is some insanely awesome texture.

Nice one, but I would change the buttons of the jacket. The buttons are IMHO horrible

I've never seen a jacket with that much, uh, texture. I can't decide if I like it or not, but it certainly eye-catching. What is it?

Hemp?
post #37603 of 43873
That texture is off the charts. I like it.
post #37604 of 43873
^ Was this fabric previously employed as a conveyer of potatoes (possibly Adirondack Blues)? I kid, of course. Like Andy57, I can't quite decide if I'm yea or nay, but it definitely makes a statement.

Thanks.  Wool/silk blend from Suit Supply.    Actually surprisingly light weight.

You love it, too.   :nodding:    (See above ...)

 

Tie is Hober Oxford weave, by the way.
