The end of the tie hits his belt, so it's the right length.

I'm not as troubled by the green tie. I suspect that the IRL subtleties of color and texture would give the the navy trousers a bit more life to stand up to the lively green of the tie.

PoW and other overcheck/windowpane sportcoats are great and I have several that are among my favorites.  The easy solution is trousers in that most versatile color, what photographers call "18% gray" or "Zone V" gray, which provides a neutral reference.  That works for PoW check jackets on other ground colors perfectly, but unfortunately it looks too matchy with a mid-light gray ground jacket.  With a winter flannel or tweed PoW, charcoal gray trousers make a good option, too, if you don't mind a "northern lights" look (as I don't).  

 

Thanks, this is really informative and helpful advice. And it makes a lot of sense. 

Coincidentally, I've recently been considering getting this fabric from Ed that's a brown POW.

Have been scratching my head as to whether this would be suitable made up as a sportcoat. What do you guys think? 

If it were paired with grey trousers, would there be insufficient contrast, and thus look more like an orphaned suit jacket?

Eventhough it hits his belt, I would tie it a bit longer just cover the bucklet at least. (To hit the bottom of belt)

That'd rok as an SC, imo.  I'm seeing a lite-mid brown, which u could pair with dark (if u must)  or lite grey trews.   What's the weight and fabric?

Thanks for your input. Much appreciated.

According to Ed, it's actually a pure wool, 280-300gms, made for Kiton, fabric.

@An Acute Style .. There are cool paisley ties,  there are fugly paisley ties...  and then there's this one. :uhoh: 

 

 

 

@ThunderMarch  noice.  Light to mid-weight for jacketing then.  FWIW  I'd wear it with a light-weight light grey flannels.

 

Go patch pockets + 3 roll 2 and nobody'll mistake for a suit jacket!

Thanks for the 'thumbs' for my debut outfit.

 

A bit colder today in the UK with the threat of rain so suede shoes are out of the question. As it's Friday, a more whimsical tie suits. Kept it simple with the white line PS once again.

 

Again sorry for the really terrible photos, I'll have to work out a better lighting scheme (and I promise the trousers aren't as creased as the photos make out!)

 

 

 

 

Jacket: Nigel Hall

Shirt: PRL

Tie: Unbranded 'pink elephant'

PS: PRL

Belt: Peter Werth

Cord Trousers: Gap

Shoes: Loake

The alcohol concentration in this warehouse was so high that my eyes were watering and we had to wipe the camera after every shot! This is how hard life gets when you drink for living :)
