Actually, that picture may be a bigger indictment frown.gif The natural light in that pic is rather subdued, lots of shadows. The one that thing that really pops out is the electric blue. I like bold patterns (although heading more subdued as I age) but that jacket works in a wardrobe where you have lots of jackets. Once you wear it, it will be remembered for a long time and wearing it again in a few weeks will make you "that sportcoat guy". If your rotation consists of many jackets and you wear this one in a more business casual type setting, then I think its fine but I can't see wearing that more than 2-3 times a year.

^ Fair points. I noticed that the blue check stood out, even in the low light, but the rest of the pattern seemed toned down so the overall effect was less frenetic. And the indoor light seemed a bit more like how many of us spend our days, so maybe it would seem more like this. I agree completely on infrequent wearings.

Thanks in advance.

DL-

I imagine you want something dressier/ closer to Drake's, but if you're interested in a casual version, AKOG has something like that this season

Fabric is really nice in real life. Slightly textured.

How many jackets does one need to have before acquiring this jacket.

1. Basic Blue Blazer

2. Basic UPS Brown Sportcoat

3. ???????

As I get older I find myself leaning away from bright, bold overchecks, at least for regular coat & tie situations. Personally I'd never wear that city gunclub with anything other than jeans.

Well, everybody has to choose for themselves based on their situations. You can have a variety of blue sportcoats, given the multitude of shades/textures etc available and not have it look like you are wearing the same coat everyday. If I were a lawyer or a banker, that LL fabric would be about number 25 on the list of sportcoats to get made up. If I were an interior desecrator or ran an art gallery, that may be the third or fourth jacket I would get.

The point is not so much how many jackets you need to have, but rather how often you need to wear a jacket. If your occupation/style of dress required you to wear a sportcoat everyday and you had 4-5 sportcoats and that fabric was one of them, I think you would be doing yourself and the jacket a disservice. If you wear a jacket once in a blue moon for social occasions, then having that be one of a few is perfectly fine.

^ I traded that LL city gunclub to Lord Superb. The blue is a prominent turquoise. I actually liked the color of the blue, but I thought it was too prominent of a stripe against the light cream base of the fabric, which made the blue pop, and that with a horizontal stripe it accentuated the wrong line. I have a similar blue in one of the Harrisons anniversary tweeds and it is a check against a tan background that I thought it would make up better.

I also own a jacket's length of the LL gun club fabric, and the blue stripe stands out very strongly. I like bold jackets but something about it is off to me... Maybe it's the fact that the blue stripe stands out from an otherwise sedate gun club, or maybe because there's no corresponding vertical stripe. Every time I think of having it made up, I change my mind.

I think perhaps it depends on your subspecialty. If you are the lead surgeon doing hepatectomies, you may be less interested in closing than say someone doing an incisional hernia repair, or an abdominoplasty.

If IRL the blue highlights are more subliminal then I guess it could be stunning.

Here you go. photo credit (London Lounge)

It's a shame about the turquoise overcheck as the background is very nice, I sold my length on B&S.

Very true. I was considering it in the scope of plastics, as I know a few plastics guys that have PAs close for them (as well as some that would be appalled by the idea), but I guess I didn't really think about the pros and cons with regards to general surgery applications. It makes total sense though to take it on a case-by-case basis

Have got a question. 

If you guys were to have only ONE.... DB odd jacket, what fabric would you choose?

Just one. 

 

Best be something that does not wear too warm.

Navy hopsack.

I'd go navy flannel. If that's too warm then Navy hopsack. If that's still too warm, then Navy fresco.

Halstead's huckaback weave jacketing 50% kid mohair/50% wool in navy or light navy. It's around 10 oz. Good for summer and you can layer up in the cooler months.
