    Nothing compared to some of the incredible looks you guys pull off but here's today's. I know many frown on wearing a suit with no tie but a suit and tie would be a bit too formal for most of my work days.

    Thanks, Frank just reworked it, and I'm pretty happy with the improved fit. As far as count, 12 sport coats with one in the works for the spring/summer, 7 suits (of which 5, maybe 6, are blazer suits, including this one, which I'm sure I'll catch shit for), one overcoat with another to be ready by Halloween, and about 20 pants give or take a few. I'm pretty happy with what I have and will likely only add one major piece each spring and one each winter fall for the foreseeable future.

    As always, Victor entertains and instructs us with so many interesting details: the blue checked shirt paired with the chocolate knit tie, the stitching on the lapel keyhole, the pic stitch on the lapel, the links, the sassy PS with the blue stitch border.

    Nice, gnatty8. I like the green tie and I am not a big fan of that color in menswear. But you do it well.

    IMO this is the best fitting jacket I've seen on you so far. Perhaps a tad long, but the draped chest and reduced waist suppression work very well...

    Hard to take good pictures with a low and bright sun. The colour of the shirt almost bleeds to white, but yes it's pink...

    If you wonder why I only buy vintage and second hand clothes, please read this book, Dana Thomas; Deluxe - How Luxery lost its Luster, and you´ll understand. The price of a luxery brand and the quality do not meet. We pay their advertising, not their taylors. This is a Gucci jacket. It may have cost a thousand dollars or more. I bouhgt it cheap, under a hundered dollars. The fabric is nice and expensive. But the facturing? Probably made in a low cost factory somewhere in Asia. I do not want to pay 10 times the production cost just for a certain brand. I prefere real quality, i.e. before 1965

    Pic looks like someone is throwing an old-style dustbin lid at your head. Everyone's a critic... :)

    I'm trying to understand why I don't like this as much as I normally like your outfits. I think it might be the intensity of the shirt. Not sure...

    I really like the handkerchief though.

    Does the jacket have a somewhat longer & looser cut than some of the other ones you've posted, or is it just different photo angles? Because I really like fit of this one.





    A rushed morning, with a lot of on-the-fly combining when getting ready...

    ... I think it more or less worked out, though the trousers are admittedly too dark for the overall fit. I did at least tighten up the tie knot a bit, later in the day.
