Its interesting that you say that as I find that gorge ideal and push my customers to get something closer to that than what is more the norm today.

I'm lazy- it's not just the (lowish not crazy low) gorge that dates it IMO but the combination of the cut and features including the gorge:  flapped patched, brass buttoned, closed quartered, swollen edged, square shouldered blazer that just looks a little dated.  I like the notch to point to just below the shirt collar gap.  Low gorge accentuates my sloping shoulders.

OK, those details you mention are pretty standard/classic blazer details though. On the gorge, I believe the exact opposite as you, the more sloped your shoulders, the worse a high gorge looks as it accentuates your shoulders and the gorge looks like its pulling up past your shoulder line. Anyway, just a difference in opinion.

Very nice combo. I think a pair of brown oxfords would look nice too!

I'm really glad you're back posting.  I love the jacket, and would be happy to know the provenance of the cloth.

Thanks Pliny! It's from Holland & Sherry's Sherry Tweed book.

 

And on AAS' gorge, I believe it's absolutely fine, perfectly balanced. It'd need to be quite lower to date the jacket. I'm wearing a vintage Canali DB today where the gorge is much lower (it's also 6x1)
