I see your "Prince o Walles" linen DB,and the charcoal SB two buttons coat.
Very beautiful.

Cheers but the charcoal is one button I hope.

@chobochobo did you take any pics of the fitting?

My wife took a couple with her phone. The upper body/ neck/shoulder fit was impressive considering he took very few measurements.

Yes, both Arrigo & Palmisciano took only a few measurements and needed very little adjustment (back tightness & sleeve pitch) at the first fitting.

The full fresco, in tobacco.

Happy with the way it turned out. The jacket is beginning to roll to the third button, and the soft canvas is already starting to take shape.

I think I'm going to have Tailors Keep do all my trousers; I just got the 520 fresco back and they fit great. Will pair them with the Arrigo jacket next week.

Have a light blue/grey 14oz woolen flannel from Holland and Sherry. Since I'll be getting a mid-grey flannel made up as a DB, I was thinking of a three-piece with the following details: three-roll-two, patch hip pockets, barchetta chest pocket, and puntino. My reasoning is that I might wear the jacket with the Minnis houndstooth or Fox POW trousers, for a casual day in the SF sun.

Thoughts?

Why not the Tobacco coat with off white linen trousers?

Looks very good UC. I'm an avowed fan of a hard three but for those who aren't I still much prefer to see the fronts roll higher as they do in this pic rather than rolling / folding all the way to the middle button.

Oh, and in this pic (on my phone) it looks pure dark brown. I think of tobacco as a dark ginger / dark burnt orange with more of brown than red tint, but semantics eh?

Not a bad idea. I'll have to search for some in 12oz.

@Thin White Duke Both tailors seem to favor a higher roll, at least initially. With time they may roll a little lower. Either way, I like how the lapels are very three dimensional without being heavy or stiff.

This shade of tobacco was supposed to be less red, amirite @dieworkwear? This pic was taken in the shade at 9:30am; although it has a bit of mottling it looks brighter in the midday sun.

Color was supposed to be a more neutral brown. I think it's still a bit less red than the original Slewfoot run, but the color is a touch warmer than I originally intended. Still, I think it turned out alright.

I like the tobacco fresco with light brown/oatmeal/off-white pents. (These might look grey-ish, depending on your screen but they're in the family described.)



The 3-piece idea sounds good, but I'd stick with a suit and not try to use a jacket in that shade as a sport coat. The color sounds nice but like suiting to me.

@UC yeah the way your lapels roll right now looks great, totally get the 'three dimensional' look you're describing - I prefer this over the hard-rolled to two Mr Six version posted below yours.

@Mr Six, but don't be mad, yours is still a classy look. Again it might be my phone but the strides look gray to me in that pic. I do agree that off white / oatmeal strides would be a good suggestion to shake things up. I just got the lower budget version of this rig - SS suit in brown (tobacco-ish!) linen. It has patch pockets so fits the blazersuit description much beloved on SS and I already have some off white linen strides I can pair the jacket with, but brown is new to me so I love looking at these pics to get inspiration for what I might wear with it. Is there something up with your shoulders or did you go for camica and it just hasn't settled yet?

I'm also curious what shoes you wore. I saw pics of Vox in brown suit with chilli shoes and UC has burgundy in his pic. I have chili captoes, #8 shell longwings, burgundy punch caps and burgundy Chelseas any of which would work but I reckon the chili captoes and the Chelseas will be the best options.

Anyway thanks to you both for sharing great pics and inspirations! Should get mine back from being tweaked at the tailor not week so looking forward to trying it out.

I prefer 3/2 but it's a matter of taste. I wore mid-brown derbys there. I wouldn't do burgundy with off-white/light brown/oatmeal trousers. Snuff suede would be good too. I like burgundy/oxblood with the tobacco fresco pents.

Black shoes look really good with suits in the brown family.
post #285 of 376

Fantabulous.  I like my tobacco with snuff and burgundy.  UC's StC are perfect.
