Double Breasted Style. - Page 90

post #1336 of 1572

Yeah thanks for the help, I really love it as well. I'm pretty keen on getting something similar now. I wonder what kind of fabric I should go for for something like that? I don't know my fabrics that well and have traditionally mostly just used VBC and Zegna for worsted but I assume this is a British fabric. Thoughts on making it pagoda/slightly roped? Not sure if it might be too much.

You could PM claghorn and ask what cloth that is. Hopsacks and serges are generally used for blazers, there must be dozens or hundreds of options.

Pagodas are not my cup of tea. Bit of roping could be ok. Depends what you want to achieve - what I like about Claghorn's jacket, and the one of Vox I just posted, are how relaxed and comfy they look, how natural. Roping to my mind is slightly at odds with that feel, and pagodas definitely so.

Thanks. I think you're right. Claghorn's outfit to me feels especially good because it seems to strike a balance between being both quite masculine and powerful and yet warm and comfortable as you say, and I think it has a lot to do with the outfit in general too. I do think getting the fabric right is key I am just not very knowledgeable about it. I'll go pm him later I guess.

 

I'm still quite undecided about the pagoda, I just like it as a personal preference and I feel like it's good for my body/look/situation. I guess I'll just think about it some.

A little something for the "matchy matchy" contingency to bitch about: matching tie, cufflinks a n d coat lining - oh dear bigstar[1].gif

the double-breasted if you know lead is fine even without a tie. for it is beautiful with a beautiful ascot!

Late 1940s, found at an antique store for $26.  I love the contrasting buttons on this one.  Ventless.

How does SF feel about three-piece double breasted?  You can see the top button of the vest when looking head-on, but it's difficult with all the angles in this photoshoot.


 



This was at a dance party, hence the bowling shoes instead of something more SF-approved.
