WAYWN - The best of - Page 14

post #196 of 416
Harris, Bmulford and others-- thanks for mentioning me! However, the photo of me in the blue sportcoat is terrible and bunched up, I think it looked much better after a short wearing-in period:




Matt, I'm not sure I'd seen all of these photos of your duds before-- the DB grey suit and the SB chalkstripe (navy? gray?) are truly works of art, really fantastic.

Manton, I'm not convinced that your shirt collar perfection will ever be bested. If I ever hit the big time and go for Charvet bespoke, I'd tell them I want my shirt collars to look like yours!


As for me, I'm headed back to the USA for at least a few weeks off of work. Things here are still f*cked up, despite what you may see in the news. I need a break.

Looking forward to checking out the small cache of new purchases I was able to order online in the last 3 months, including a navy cotton Brunello Cucinelli sportcoat from a fellow forumite!


Question for you guys-- why don't manufacturers like Brioni, Kiton, Oxxford, etc. copy the anderson and sheppard contstruction of the cloth above the jacket pockets/ pocket "jetting" lining up with the jacket pattern>? I don't think i've seen another manufacturer. Is it that difficult or labor intensive to do this? [link to english cut photo which illustrates]

I think it was Phat Guido who recently had the blue knit tie with orange check shirt.

Quite nice.

Anyone know any info about these overcoats?

the older gentleman, with the long gray hair in the DB gray suit and the SB gray suit - who is he? is he a poster here?

Yes, Il Vecchio. Infrequent poster, but these photos are indeed from the WAYWN thread.

Y'all forgetting one.

There are some very snazzy dressers around here. Il Vecchio's few pictures are just perfect. All of his stuff is beautifully patina'ed and worn-in. It makes me realize how new most of my things look - I don't wear my suits enough.

Let's take a useful tangent for a moment from the topic of this thread.

Those of you who love Il Vecchio...and you should...are loving the A&S cut. Brian Russell made for him both at A&S and afterwards...(I would have added Mr. Russell to my A&S Expats thread, but alas, he is dead.) Brian made for IL at A&S through the 80s, and continued to make for him after he left A&S.

IL is a great example of how the soft A&S tailoring style works. Some more choice photos, not from SF's WAYWRN, but worth admiration:







Superb, is it not?

Il Vecchio is insanely stylish. Some of his tastes and flair remind me of a relative of mine who has an utterly impeccable and subtly diverse wardrobe, gets his stuff tailored "off Savile Row" and has the most sartorial grace of anyone I know. I'd also venture that they're around the same age

Am I the only one who thinks that il vecchio looks like Manton circa 2027 ?

If Manton grows his hair out like a hippy, I will eat my hat.

Well! I've certainly enjoyed my 15 minutes of fame. Many thanks for the very,very kind comments. I don't post very often because I always fear that pictures and views of an old coot just shy of 70 aren't of much interest, but I hope that at least others will feel encouraged that they can still enjoy clothes and style in to older age.
