Awesome man, I'm looking forward to them.

 

Getting awfully frustrating trying to find that 'just right' shade of charcoal in a cut and style I like, OTR, that won't cost a fortune. I'm hoping you'll be able to alleviate this!

Lol, I think I had something very like that in the last 70s, reversible waistcoat and contrast second pair of pants. I still have one suit from that era I kept for fancy dress parties (not that I have any hope of getting in to it as I was a stick then) but sadly not that particular one.

im only gauging from the photo but it looks flat, stiff and lifeless imo. Perhaps a bad shot but im sure you can find something with more life

I think it's poor product photography. Same with the rest of the stuff on the HB site. Nothing "pops". Also the buttons look plastic-y.

So do I when I'm lying on the ground and someone deep etches me.

I ordered a pair of glasses with an ultra high index but always felt uncomfortable due to what I now know is the chromatic aberration.

Tricks include decreasing the lens width and the lens size, mainly, so the frame width and style is important to get right. The discomfort you've had could be due to over correction. I was over corrected close to -2 dioptres and didn't realise I had a headache from ciliary muscle constant contraction. Important to get a cyclopegic refraction.

I can gather where you are both coming from. HB really do need to bolster their online presence and advertising IMO.

MJ Bale had a grey (and blue) herringbone number last summer. Unstructured, soft shoulders. Picked one up on sale.

Then it really would look flat, stiff and lifeless, but hell why not! Do l have to wear something under it?

The Waterhouse family involved in something dodgy?

I don't think so .

I'd be shocked - shocked I tell you.

The jacket looks much nicer on the rack than in the photos. The fabric has a nice hand, too.

My only complaint is that the jacket only has two buttons, instead of having a three-roll-to-two configuration as Herringbone used to do. Still, that's just my preference and others may not care about that at all!
