Would go with the chalkstripe as second as they are just so badass!

Lastly the grey, as I only like grey SC in herringbone patterns; preferably tweed and even then I think they look best on an older men!

 

im definitely getting the first two .. still considering the grey.. got plenty of time

I think I have a kind of sickness.

 

This afternoon I popped in to the Macquarie Street Canali boutique on a whim, just before closing time. (It's just down the road from my Sydney office.) I had no real intention of buying anything.

 

I walked out a grand poorer.

 

Hmmm......[desperately searches for rationalisation]... I suppose it's better than having a gambling problem.

 

A little bit better.

Suit Shop for most my stuff but Ill still be getting a few special pieces from PJ - sometimes for an odd jacket I like his even lighter unstructured naples & rome options

 

These are what im considering next...

 

1) navy chalk stripe double breasted with peak lapels. Unsure if I will get roped or soft shoulders this time but probably jetted hip pockets and welt chest. Trousers with side adjusters, button fly and 2inch cuff

 

 

 

2) Considering a chocolate brown cotton with notch lapels 2.5button and flaps. Might try a pleat in my trousers on these. Trousers with side adjusters, button fly and 2inch cuff. Unsure if I should go our standard or wide lapels yet,

3) Light grey unstructured jacket from PJ. Still weighing up cloth options here.

I quite like grey odd jackets, but I'd go for something with a visible weave or pattern, rather than a plain weave, as the latter (I think) would look too much like an orphaned suit jacket rather than an odd jacket.

I'm a big fan of herringbone weave odd jackets (like this), but a glen plaid or a grey fabric with an overcheck would also be nice.

I'm actually thinking about a grey blazer suit in the material that you linked to.

Ah, no worries. Not sure why everyone needs to have 2 inch cuffs when they're 5 foot nothing these days.

Gerry, excellent choice.

I used to have a suit in a grey, herringbone-weave tweed some years back. It was particularly good in winter.

Good to see the love for grey herringbone is strong and free.... 

This is probably my favourite picture of grey herringbone I've found online; I like the larger pattern and more textured tweed along with this; though such a fabric would most likely be too warm for Straya's weather :(

^^ That's so cool I want one!
