@Cotton Dockers , is that an odd jacket?

I can't understand the comment on your tie. It is a great tie. Disregard it and don't give him attention.

I agree. The tie and PS look fine.

By the way, Anden, what catalogue were your photos for?

Whatever it is, I'm buying!

Yes? To be honest, it was thrifted so I don't know for sure. I like to think that because of the windowpane (as subtle as it is), the ticket pocket and its makeup (100% cashmere), it was made as an odd jacket rather than as part of a now orphaned suit (not that a suit couldn't have those attributes ).

 

I do wish the pattern was a little more aggressive, but whatever it originally was it is an odd jacket for me.

Back to the classroom today...oh, joy!

Yeah. It looks good, but I'm in the same boat as you.

Today.  Black watch and herringbone.

^^^ I go away for awhile and you start wearing pants that actually touch the tops of your shoes...LOL

Kidding, but this is a nice fit. Well done!

Those pants do fit spot on. And those cuffs. I love 'em!

Keep the tie, I would just never wear it, which I even stated was my opinion, which is up to you in how you interpret. I don't personally like the tie, but seriously more power to you if you make it work in your fits.

I'm sorry I don't have 10s of thousands of posts of good fits on this forum, but that it doesn't change the fact that, in my opinion, (take with a grain of salt if you feel that it's too personal) the entire fit looked good, but the perspective makes it look flat without some texture.
