Would have worked well with white shirt like above also.

I like yours better than the one I posted, as it has a subtle pattern and texture. You do not miss often Jason, and today was great.

That is virtually identical to the PJ suit I had made which I have on today. Except I have a little more break...

What are they made out of, Mithril?

 

The price is MTM based on measurements taken by you guys or more of a Luxire type arangement?

 

No no - we come and do all the fittings and 2nd fitting to get the pattern correct

 

JM's comments are correct - think about the amount of fabric in the trousers vs the jacket

Pretty sure this chap works for Brunello Cucinelli (just in case anyone is interested).

He should have a party and invite his trousers down.

Way too much pocket square as well.

Picking up my P Johnson wedding tux & shirt soon, can't wait.

Also got a set of Albert Thurston braces and Le Noeud Papillion bow tie.


Will hopefully remember to post some pics.


Edit: Also does anyone have any advice regarding what to wear under the shirt as I don't want to freeze my nuts off.

If I wear a singlet under I was thinking grey because I find you see it less than a white one.

Cardigan, you beaut sf approved : )

Bear in mind this photograph is a few years old, this chap works for Brunello Cucinelli and is wearing the company's look from that time period.

That is a beautiful suit. I'm hopefully getting measured up for a suitshop in a couple of days. It's my 2nd suit so was planning on something navy to follow conventional sf wisdom, but man this is tempting. What do you guys reckon? Start with the basics right?

Not sure what fabrics suitshop are carrying, but I got a very dark solid brown in Loro Piana fabric from PJ a while ago that I'm very happy with. Maybe they have that one.

Ah, yes, fashion. That explains it.

What did Wilde say again...'fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months'.

Rainy day shoe shine...
post #31904 of 57994
Nice shoes, nice shine.

Do people have rainy day suits?
post #31905 of 57994
Thanks Ernesto! The Hallams are old faithfuls and actually look a lot better than my mediocre photography reflects (I've been playing with Journeyman's Fuji x10 but I really don't know what I'm doing!)...

The Carminas, I will probably sell, alas. I took ages to decide on them, then wore them once and realised that I'm just not a wholecut guy. Still, they got a shine smile.gif

As for rainy days, I tend to go for a dark navy (okay, my favourite anyway), because it looks good in dim light, and also because if I get a bit of rain on it, it's not really noticeable. Dark brown shoes, because they don't show a bit of mud too badly...
