I know that someone a few pages back mentioned herringbone-weave jackets, so here are some photos of today's outfit:



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)








- Grey, herringbone weave jacket by Herringbone;
- Blue-and-white university stripe OCBD by Land's End;
- Navy knit tie with white dots from Charlie's Wardrobe;
- Navy cotton trousers by Charles Tyrwhitt; and
- Vintage scotchgrain calf Florsheim longwings.

On the topic of herringbone-weave jackets, I've got a couple - the one shown above and blue one that is just a shade lighter than navy. Both were from Herringbone two or three years back. The blue, herringbone-weave jacket has waist patch pockets and a welted breast pocket, and is actually part of a suit. The grey jacket has flapped, welted waist pockets and a welted breast pocket.

Curiously, whilst I really like herringbone as a jacketing fabric, I don't like it as a shirting fabric, as it often has a bit of a sheen to it and tends to be very soft. Perhaps I'm just a contrary person, but I like my shirts to be crisp and my jackets to be soft!

Nice jacket, Journeyman. I own the same (this was taken almost a year ago, Remembrance Day, 2011)

TBM, that looks very nice.

Herringbone actually did two grey, Herringbone jackets - one a few years back and more recently.

Mine has slightly unusual "self-fabric" elbow patches and I think it was made by Ring Jacket in Japan. From memory, the more recent grey herringbone jacket had brown suede elbow patches.

IIRC, the one from 2008 has the silk tie fabric under collar, correct? It's purple and black or purple and navy. It also has three working buttons at the cuff?

Herringbone is THE jacket material weave.

J -Man - you see my post on the LE OCBD you are wearing a while back?

Yep that's right, I've got the most recent one (same one as TBM I suspect). I just picked the patches off and found it so much more versatile as an odd jacket to wear a bit more formally. it's my favourite odd jacket.

Looking good by the way.

Whoever was looking for a navy mac, this doesn't look to be a bad deal, especially when combined with all the TMS coupons: http://www.themensshop.com.au/M-J-Bale-Cotton-Navy-Trench-Coat/

100% cotton.

quick question for guys with meermins and other shoe experts. My feet are about 26cms by 10.8cms. Judging from the information in the meermin thread I should go with a size 8.5 because of the additional width?

And wouldn't going up a half size make the shoe crease differently?

I'm in need of two mop or horn buttons to replace those that came with my CJ gloves - can anyone recommend a website with a good range + reasonable prices? Cheers

$60 each (on special). Pretty excited - they look like good quality ties. Purple, red and green ties. Hopefully they are a good start.

 

Very nice! Let us know how you like them.

A well-dressed thief man once told me that the best place to find horn buttons is the pockets of expensive jackets in David Jones..

I laughed, and then he said, 'I'm not joking..'

Was it that long ago? That's rather depressing!

Yes, mine is the one with the silk melton, with purple, blue and red stripes. It would have made an awful tie, but it gives quite a nice effect under the collar.
