Great stuff so far. Hopefully I can put something together.
TEN TIES, FIVE JACKETS (10/5 THREAD): SPRING-SUMMER EDITION - Page 2
@poorsod great stuff! Love the belly on the fresco DB. What's the story on the Barbera fabric for the Formosa 3-piece? The reddish tie with it is a nice touch.
I have a number of DBs from NSM and some have more belly than others. Not sure if it is because of the cloth, the cutter or a combination of the two.
I found the cloth a couple years ago on EBay. It said Carlo Barbera for H Lesser on the selvedge and it was sold by Harrisons (Burley) so I figured it was probably genuine.
Dionisio thinks he can cut a 3-piece for me in under 3.5m for non patterned cloth. I think I might test him on it because I have a few 3.5m lengths that I think would look good as a 3-piece.
Here's my five sport coats:
L to R: Chan fresco 0520, Chan Zegna linen/woolsilk, Luxire house cotton, NMWA/Formosa Drapers Airy Hopsack, Chan defunct dark brown fresco
Ten ties, first the shantungs.
L to R: Drakes, Conrad Wu x3
L to R: Arbor Knot, vintage YSL, Louis Boston
L to R: Hober, Polo x2
Unfortunately, I not all of these ties are the ones selected above. Sorry about that. I'll add those over time.
The first five sets of L/R photos are the same outfit. The rest are only just the v-zone (as the Japanese calls the chest area).
Top: E. G. Capelli. Bottom: Vanda.
Top and bottom: Vanda.
Top and bottom L: Vanda. Bottom R: E. G. Capelli.
Top L: Sartoria Corcos. Top R, Bottom L and R: Vanda
Gaz!!!! Great to see you here. Been a while (btw so many pics lost in that Italy thread with you and @maomao ).
Who needs adventurous when you have elegant? Still...pink and mustard...nice.
Nice posts. Love the striped shantungs especially. Trying to figure out if I've been on the campus in the top pic, a nice, casual, professorial look.

Ten ties: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I don't have many S/S jackets since I don't wear a jacket daily in summer. I think I have only two jackets/suits that get worn exclusively S/S, but I'll try to be true to the theme
Gray knit (Howard Yount) with a wool-linen jacket (also what I am wearing today
Same jacket, orange neat from Henry Carter
Raw silk Panta; suit is wool-linen
Linen YHNT. Same suit as above
Raw silk Conrad Wu. Wool-linen-silk jacket
