I've been strongly considering a 6x1 configuration, as I feel that the stronger V-shape would make my puny 32 inch chest look wider. Still looking for the right fabric tough.
I think I'll try a bit that. I can always add a nice crew- or v-neck sweater underneath the jacket to take it down a notch in formality. Forest green, brown, pale lavender seems to work well.
Burgundy sweater with PoW coat looks bad on me for some reason, even when I swap to a brown tie.
No idea why, looks awesome in this BB add:
(Now when I look at this again, I realize he's wearing a gray v-neck with burgundy trim... oh well)
