Hmm, we could expand our standard suit and jacket collection, but nah, let's just introduce 4 ridiculous cotton skinny lapel jackets with matching shorts.

 

Yabbut check this. Burgundy cashmere suit from Maison Martin Margiela.

 

 

Now that's how you do a red suit. (It's a tad loose on that model, but you know what I mean.)

 

Anyone who wants to jump on it, it's here: http://e.farfetch.com/a/hBSVHKCB8ZzwsB81lOjAAGDpFfY/arri23

EDIT:

 

Sorry Dusty; missed your post.

Thanks on the socks to Mike Sy; sadly it's the oppoiste regarding pants for me as my waist has stayed the same but my legs have gotten bigger :( Might have to say goodbye to 'sickfadez' on my 3 sixteens..... Chino's and khaki's still fit though, yay for buying stuff with a more relaxed fit!

 

Gerry you might of missed but I think this is your cloth :)

Oh the fiancee took this the other day before going out to a fancy lunch. My best attempt at pulling a #menswear pose. Note the blase hand in the patch pocket, combined with the "look at my fucking watch", and not looking at the camera, but still rocking a shit-eating grin. Enjoy.

Anywhere cheaper to get the Red Oxx Air Boss? It's $225 plus $45 shipping to Australia.

Man ... where do you even start with the fit?

Collar gap, buttoning stance too low, jacket too short, shoulders look a little bit too big, sleeves too long and too wide.

 

But that's probably just how the model is wearing it :/

^ Now that you mention it, the button stance and jacket length are not balanced. I suppose that's "fashion-forward" for you.

 

The rest of your "fail" points are simply due to the jacket being too big for the guy modelling it.

 

The material is really nice.

I don't usually comment on other members appearance, but this is one of the best ensembles I've seen on this thread.  Well done.  I want to buy a pair of mahogany brogues now.

I have extremely fine (i.e. thin shafts) hair which needs something to stiffen it up a bit and add body. I use KMS Hairplay "molding paste". Finger scrunch into a style, then use a bit of hairspray to hold the shape. That lasts all of five minutes and then it just goes lank and flat again.

 

This was more important to me back in the day. Nowadays I don't really give much of a shit what my hair looks like. Most days I don't bother with the above routine.


Thanks Coxie (reminds me of the urban legend of the commentators accidental double-entendre: Harry Carpenter at the Oxford-Cambridge boat race 1977 - 'Ah, isn't that nice. The wife of the Cambridge President is kissing the Cox of the Oxford crew.')

 

Acutally my hair is very fine and wispy, so BC gives it some weight and helps keep it in place. I might try GF's suggestion first up.

Another one I used t use was Spruso Solid Brilliantine neutral in terms of fragrance good for that slicked back look.

Or the ABC sports reader who ended a report, turned to the newsreader and said: 'Isn't it interesting how rowing crews dip their Cox in the water at the end of a race...'.

Would an unstructured navy cotton sports coat compliment this outfit? If not, what would be a better recommendation?

I would say yes as I have worn similar but with brown belt and shoes.
