Update: A 3 pc 2 btn SB in Reid and Taylor "Silver Gander" ( dk. grey with a burg. stripe), a pair of lt. grey flannel trousers (cant remember the book) ,and a chocolate w/dark red triple overcheck 4x2 DB suit out of the Dormueil "Scottie" book (finally got a "ticket" pocket), some MTM Samuelsohn trousers.

All done for the year or the wife will shoot me.

This is what I plan on getting for this fall:

- 3 shirts fitted ones of course, 1 striped, 1 solid, 1 checked. No french cuff though.
- 2 sweaters 1 v-neck, 1 crewneck. hopefully cashmere
- 3 pants 2 pair of jeans + yesterday I bought a pair of beige-brownish AJ pants. They were almost like a crossover between a pair of chinos and manchesters. Really nice.
- 2 shoes 1 pair of brown leather brogues, 1 pair of brown leather chelsea boots.

Thats it, well atleast thats my plan.

Jacket and vest (still undecided on the vest's lapels, any thoughts?) out of brown wool/cashmere blend H&S tweed w. a little blue spackle shot through it Light gray two button herringbone sportscoat, merino wool (H&S) Dark gray two button herringbone sportscoat, merino wool (H&S) A bold blue (punching somewhere a little more dandyish than navy) peacoat, short but with very full lapels and strong shoulders DB overcoat in the same color as the one Hermes has in their new Indian Winter advertisement, wide lapels but with a fairly unpronounced peak That double button collar button-down that I just saw... Fantastic looking! Probably in a washed oxford blue Chestnut brogue cap toe balmorals Another pair of Hunter boots Light gray cashmere knit beanie Of course, some of these items will need to be canceled, others may take so long as to be less Fall, more Winter.. But either way, I'm tremendously excited EI

4. No pocket, no front placket (or 'French', whatever you prefer to call it)

I essentially wanted to create something dressier for the office, but still capable of taking abuse and being worn casually. Also, the lower collar of the standard OCBD is not very flattering on me when worn with a tie; this version works much better.

Why don't you go to Geneva instead...10x better and its bespoke...Brooks Brother doesn't make their shirts to look like that.

I've made several from this bunch and it makes up really well. Just sent this to a customer in Vancouver but I didn't want to let it go. It feels like cashmere.

I'm still building my waredrobe so I'll be buying quite a bit:

2-3 pairs of shoes from C&J. I already have the Weymouth in Dark Brown and Belgrave in Chestnut, probably getting Clifford in Tan, Saville in Dark Brown, and maybe Belgrave in Suade. Plal is my friend

Navy Blazer. Probably HF cause they fit me great but i'll shop around

2-3 pairs of slacks. grey and tan or khaki color

1-2 more suits. Probably HF again, and probably Charcoal Stripe and/or Navy stripe.

a bunch more ties

2 new belts. Tan and black

Some shirts. I tried the Nordstrom MTM a couple months ago and I am happy with them maybe i'll get a couple more.

I also need a new overcoat but I don't think i'll get there this year. I'll just save for next year a get a nice cashmere one.

I also sent this one but forgot to photograph it. I will see it on the customer in New York in a couple of weeks. I cut it with a side body for more flare & crescent pockets.

I must have a pair of rugged boots before foul weather sets in. With my budget, and the toll Chicago winters take on my footwear I am considering either JCrew Redwings or the Dr. Martens that are once again being made in England. If JCrew does not have a good discount code soon it will be the Docs.

Otherwise:

-Odd city trou. (only have two for cold weather and one is verging on crotch blowout)
-Jean-cut pinwale cords (current cords are trou. cut)
-silk squares (to accessorize all the rough textured tailored items)
-wool ties
-fun socks
-a few more colors of silk knot links

Always try to keep the list short to ensure I can afford to take advantage of the inevitable "great deal."

I'm considering getting the olive green herringbone Black Label sport coat when the sale starts. Other than that I'm looking for another sport coat and perhaps a cord jacket or similar casual item.
