As others have said, gunclub is your friend when it comes to denim.

I would wear this gunclub I had made up with denim. If it wasn't already fall I would be already. Haven't yet had time to take it to my tailor to get the sleeves done:

Shout out to the NMWA crew for the MTO service for my Inglese tux shirt and my CMT MTO Formosa. The tuxedo shirt turned out perfect, exactly what I wanted, and the jacket looks incredible; when I bought the fabric I sort of had an idea of what it would look like, but I think it looks better than expected. Here's a quick pic in some natural light

Thanks gents! I have a gunclub houndstooth jacket coming from Ed as well as a cashmere donegal.

I appreciate all the responses. Now my next question. Soft shoulder or unconstructed? I've worn both and enjoy them equally. I just am not sure if there is a preference for one over the other.

Steed from yesterday

So hard to tell from pictures, Justin. If you have both and like wearing them, then get both. From those pictures, I would pick the more structured look of the Steed, a seemingly cleaner line but also seemingly soft to my eye. If that correlates with more actual structure in shoulder than not, and the photos represent how the jackets look in real life, then sure more "structure".  

 

"Soft shoulder" is an uninformative description (I take it you got Steed's soft shoulder option in the MTM?).

 

That said, I think we've taken the unstructured shoulder to extremes where a lot of men who could use with some added structure opt for none and end up having their shoulder line look like that of the tip of an arrow pointing upwards.

Not sure that's really a year round cloth, but it might work three seasons in San Francisco.

Any info on the cloth? Looks a bit like the old Riviera, but don't think it is.

@justinkapur What are the details on the ring? Also, you should really clean your room.

@justinkapur In addition to gunclubs, it seems to me that other large scale checks also work. I think your Steed MTM was from the Worsted Alsport book, which seems like a good one for fabrics with jeans. Glorious Twelfth, Delfino's Brughiera and Maremma, and W Bill Phoenix books seems like other potentially good books for a combination of texture, pattern, and color that you could do with jeans that would be year-roundish.

It's from Ed, but I'm pretty sure it's sold out.

You want a jacket, not a cardigan, right? So Steed. :hide:

@venividivicibj Ha. Look at the background. Wire hangers, snowboard boxes, would drive me nuts.

I saw a similar colored gunclub from Ed, but I'm hesitating since it's 100% cashmere and 10oz., so it'd probably wear too warm for my intended use [as a summer SC].

Haha...that's what his room looks like in every selfie I've seen.  @justinkapur, I hope you give Christmas bonuses to your local UPS, USPS, and FEDEX drivers.

Its 55 wool/45 linen, and either Zegna (pretty sure) or LP, I don't remember which. Its dry and porous, the wool gives it a nice drape and the linen nice texture. I've been trying to get more of it.

Its good for up to 65-70 or so degree weather in a low humidity environment, in NYC its an early spring/early fall jacket.
