Wow, my kind of challange. I love tweed and this is the first time I participate here.

- The jacket is bespoke by Zaremba in Poland. It is unlined and with a soft construction. The tweed fabric is a donegal style by W.Bill and has the same color as my beard :-)
- Bespoke shirt from Francesco Merolla in Napoli
- Bepsoke donegal tweed tie by E.G Cappelli Napoli
- Bespoke grey flannel trosuers in a Fox Brothers fabric
- Suspenders in saxony tweed from Dugdale and Bros. by Albert Thurston
- Drakes London wool/silk pocket square

Dude! Awesome, your coat and my tie are made from the same cloth...super.

@Gerry Nelson you have to enter your green donegal here.

 

 

Wish I could, man. I'm in Japan till the end of the month and didn't bring it with me. If I were back in Melbourne, it would be too hot to wear it.

Wore this exact outfit yesterday, but rain prohibited a photoshoot so the pics are from some time ago.

DV tweedcoat with suede accents from Steven Hitchcock, moleskin trousers from Cordings, a cashmere tie from Teo Grimaldi, T&A shirt, silk crêpe PS from Grundwald, Harvie & Hudson sweather, bespoke nubucks from John Lobb (St. James’s), shades from Retrosuperfuture

No.  It’s just a bad dream.  Such things do not exist.

 

Concentrate solely on the sound of my voice.  I’m going to count down from ten to zero, at which point you’ll awaken feeling refreshed and remembering nothing of this.

 

10

9

8 …

 

Cheers,

Nope, they're fiery red (the color of the tie) - somehow the iPhone camera didn't get it right.
