Trousers - bespoke in Huddersfield worsted cloth

OCBD - Polo RL

Tie - Balmain

Braces - Albert Thurston for TM Lewin

Shoes - Loake Kew in chestnut

Taking advantage of an unusually cool day to wear this Donegal tweed. It's probably overkill, but I doubt there'll be another chance before next winter.



Textures and details (Click to show)

Jacket: Steed from custom Molloy Donegal Tweed

Shirt: Proper Cloth

Tie: Massdrop x Panta

Square: Put This On

Trousers: Hemrajani

Shoes: Carmina


Probably the last time out for this Massdrop x Panta tie. It too closely resembles a piece of string for my liking. It's a shame as the color and design are very useful.

You can get away with it because of your slim figure and an otherwise decent fit, but for future purchases I would strongly advise you to look for longer jackets. You have relatively short arms, so the sleeves  will have to be shortened (which is a pain with SuSu real buttonholes). I have similar problems and things are similarly difficult for me because nobody in Central Europe is stocking long sizes anymore (though in Northern Europe it should not be that bad, I saw some in Hamburg or Stockholm, for example). But apart from SuSu these are typically from the more expensive makers. You might want to look out for Canali or Corneliani in long sizes.


I have completely switched to MTM, but good MTM is (relatively) expensive. I have not been satisfied with the cut of Munro/SuSu MTM. I use online MTM for shirts (Belisario), but would not trust online MTM for jackets. I have used Orazio Luciano (measured at trunk show) with very good results and I am currently working with Regent Handtailored in Germany for suits. Being in close contact with the latter provides the opportunity to fine-tune fit (and partially style) to near bespoke level.

Wow! Spot on, great advice!!!

Suit - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Charvet
Braces - Lewin
Cufflinks - M P Levene, London
PS - Alain Figaret
Shoes - Septieme Largeur, Paris

Oh yeah, this hits all the right points, especially the Double-breasted jacket and forward pleats. Really nice.
