I don't know. I think his jacket is acceptable. I've always avoided Thom Browne-short but some of my jackets are the same length of @blekit ' s recent post. Brooks Brothers has a "Cambridge" fit that is a bit short but quite nice.

Apology not accepted.  Looks like you tied that with your feet.  JK.  Not feeling any of this other than the shirt.  Great collar.  The patterns are all fairly close in scale.  The burgundy/olive square clashes with the red tie IMO.  

Huh? The suit is a herringbone with an accent pinstripe, the tie is a neat, and the hank is a large-scale pattern. None of them is similar in scale to another. The tie and hank are nearly the same color, but apparently the combination of satin-y and matte textures makes this hard to see in the photo.

As for the knot, it looked much better when I tied it (but not good). Short of re-tying it at work, there was nothing to be done at the point I took the picture. I appreciate your principled objection. smile.gif

I'm not going to photoshop it, but the suit has alternating colored stripes. The distance between same colored stripes is the same as the distance between each medallion in the tie. The square may be a large scale paisley, but in the pocket their are several micro paisley/neat patterns going on that are about the same size as the pinstripe and tie pattern. In particular, the band going from bottom left to top right in the square.

Nonetheless, I know I've mentioned this before, but I have retied my tie at work on many occasions. I think it's worth the trouble.

This is hard core.

Now that combo is a bit busy but I like it anyway :D Meet my new mohair suit made of vintage Scabal coupon. It is not as light as the Reed & Tailor kid mohair DB I showed a few days ago but the it still gives a lot of comfort when worn in high temperatures. I also wear a salmon shirt, which might be slightly inspired by Boardwalk Empire ;) I thought the color would be much more difficult to wear but it seems that when framed by proper color combination, it is not nearly as extravagant as I though it would be. The tie is quite busy but I think that this kind of big patterns and ornaments are coming back and soon we will see more :) Well... at least I bought some more fabrics like that for Miler Menswear. Of course contrasting horn buttons are a must in the summer ;)

New tie today from @hnwhite, a gorgeous 50oz Macclesfield print silk. New H N White square, too. The square is actually predominantly a lovely blue that picks up the blue in the medallions on the tie, but it photographed rather darker than real life, sadly. You'll just have to take my word for it!

Not feeling that Miller's Oath sport coat. Maybe it's the photo, but the jacket feels as if it wants to fall off your shoulders. Body of the jacket seems shapeless. May be some waist suppression could help.

I'm glad I took these pictures today, this illustrates to me better than looking in the mirror that my jacket is, in fact, too short.

Yes, definitely too short.

Interlining is composed of floating canvas with a tiny bit of flannel so indeed very soft a bit shapeless. Most other garments I wear also have horsehair so a lot more shape there. Though shape also comes from the wearer's body so one needs a nice waist to boast a nice waist ;) As for the shoulders, I have to agree, we decreased the padding and this time they don't work so well for me... 

BTW it's Miler with a single L ;)

His comment was directed towards Justin's Miller's (Kirk Miller) Oath jacket, Tom....long after Justin posted and without a quote so that's probably the cause of the confusion.

FWIW, I assume the appearance of Justin's jacket is due to his terrible photo skills smile.gif.

Yes please blame my photo skills that are being experimented on. Although I do think this jacket does need a slight nipping at the waist which I have reached out to Kirk about.
