Fair enough. I think it would be improved by a medium/dark tie, say a chocolate brown, as well.

I have handled both the blue moonbeam and LL shetland, well I have the blue LL Shetland made up into a sport coat and have to say that it is darker compared to moonbeam. Moonbeam is pale and would be hard to pair up, I won't wear my jacket with a tie but it would work with denim, brown shades and dark to medium gray pants. For shirts, I would stick to white and light blues.

I'll be the lone wolf here and say that if you have to think so hard about what shirt to wear with that fabric (and will probably have the same issue with ties), then you should not be buying that fabric. This goes to my philosophy of think very long and hard about what you buy and then being able to throwing it on with what is in your closet without having to think about it. I don't like yellow shirts although the right shade could work for people but if you are fair skinned, its a tough color to pull off. without looking like a banana. Personally, I would have gone with something else from moonbeam, something darker. That light blue shade and light grey pants are not going to work, it will look to close in shade. Dark pants won't look that good either I don't think and given the shirt issue, that would have been a pass for me.

Yep

It's not an easy jacket to coordinate with everything else you wear.

Looking great as always, Butler. What's the fabric for those cream flannel trousers?

Please excuse any bits of wrinkling/creasing as it just was received and taken out of the box yesterday. Regardless, they did a great job as usual! It is incredibly comfortable. I forget the weight, but it doesn't feel too heavy. Wears very nicely.


why is the narrowest point
on the coat
at different levels?

not only from one pose
but also from the back

Picture seems wonky to me.. Or he is standing in a funny position.

post #2051 of 2438
It's the way I'm standing. It's tough for me to stand totally straight for photos for whatever reason. If you look closely at the trousers and the break one knee is bent forward a little bit which seems to throw things off a bit.

or is it physical?
because it is not only
in the front photo
it is also present
in the same position
on the photo
from the back
post #2053 of 2438
Physical on my part, correct. I generally just lean one way or another at most times. One shoulder is dropped more than the other and I used to have minor back issues (mostly all cleared up at this point). For each photo I snapped 3 photos in a row and each one was slightly different in the appearance of the silhouette. We all know we can never fully judge any robo-pose type photo as 100% accurate of how it looks in real life.

Also, from what I've read, Slew hadn't pressed it at the time, so there may have been shipping creases that dent weirdly and reflect light deceptively into a photograph.

Good point! This was only one day out of the box with no pressing or steaming. Forgot about that.
