Subjectively, 3 button peak is only slightly better than 4 button notch. Peaks ideal configuration is 1 button and 2 is fine. Also subjectively, the puckering at the lapel edges is overwrought, I am assuming it's purposely stitched that tight to get the puckering but that's a situation where less is more. Objectively, the collar is pretty bad, the seams where it attaches to the lapels are pretty messy, again I'm assuming for a desire to show that it's hanstitched.

I'm always amazed how little social media is indicative of real life. Instagram would lead you to believe that man is sartorial excellence.

Well its that blue that gets lighter and lighter every year for the past 10, started off as a french navy, then ink blue and now this is almost a royal blue.

Its not that one, its 197348 which is a brighter blue. Mohair is rather iridescent and can look quite different under bright lights as opposed to natural or subdued lighting. Posted this before, but here I am wearing it to give a different perspective.

This picture is quite old.

 

Anyway, I am fascinated by the cloth of the jacket (green/turquoise), it looks like a wool-linen blend. Do you guys happen to know which cloth it is? I haven't seen any similar cloth to this one on any cloth book.

 

Thanks!

Not familiar with the cloth myself. It could very well be something seasonal or old and not in circulation anymore. Loro Piana does a proposte selection they bring out for fall/winter and spring/summer thats only really got a shelf life of 6 months.

Not a fan of this look at all, it may have been started by people like him, but now it just looks "Igent" and too young, but who am I to police what people wear?

Its a nice jacket though.

According to the blog, it's some sort of Drapers cashmere wool.

Thanks guys!

 

Have to check Drapers books when possible. Ariston may have some similar too.

 

I do have a fixation with turquoise and bordeaux for odd jackets, colours that are hard to find in cloth books but that are my favourite ones since I was a child. Apart from that I mainly wear navy and grey.

@aristoi bcn - I was just looking at Ariston linen blends jacketing for SS16, would be surprised if you dont find something similar to that in there. I think I'll order jacket in P044-02 which is similar to this, maybe more dark green.

Very nice one (crappy pic, so maybe nicer in person), though more forest green rather than turquoise. :)

That's the one.
I noticed that Portofino collection has a same (literally) cloth, and quite more of same fabrics. Understand Ariston is also a merchant, so who would make this fabric?

I do as I please. I can afford to be frivolous with clothes and I'm confident enough not to take myself or them too seriously all the time.

The green jacket is rather nice, not a fan at all of lapel pins but in conjunction with those bracelets, never, no way.

The best and generally only defense of man bracelets I've heard is "girls like them".

Worn the suit twice, tied one on both times, let me tell you, I had a fine time on the Bowery.

I get it, the purple one you did was pulled off masterfully. But I really DO NOT like this suit. BURN IT.

What is the igent look?
