    Thanks. Boots are Allen Edmonds. Don't remember the model name but they may have been a special makeup for the store I bought them at.


    Agree, the last few fits he's posted are very good.



    Damn fine suit yourself Cantabrigian..

    First post here! I wore this to a med school interview on Friday. Nothing really fancy or expensive. Tailored fit navy suit, tailored fit spread collar white shirt, light blue/ white/ navy patterned tie, brown shoes, brown belt. Looked pretty good IMO. The suit doesn't fit perfectly yet (pant legs probably should be about 3/16" longer, and suit sleeves should be ~3/16" shorter, but it was close enough.

    This was the tie: http://www.thetiebar.com/order_page...pg=0&categoryIds=31,22,60,18&optionValueIds=1

    Let me know what you guys think! I didn't want to be too bold, nor too matchy-matchy.

    This would be great if the shirt were a micro-houndstooth in the same gray and white. As-is, it's just your typical level of enjoyable madness.

    I fail to see the fourth pattern... the tie looks more "textured" than "patterned" to me. I like this, though.

    Here is what I wore on Sunday, for the Feast of the Epiphany:

    [​IMG]

    I made a special effort as (i) I like the feast, (ii) I was reading and (iii) I wanted to give the trousers, waistcoat and tie their first wear!

    Consists of:

    Black morning jacket, Monmouthshire Co-Operative Society (1950s?);
    Black/grey fine checked waistcoat with knitted back, made for a local department store (1960s?);
    Dark striped morning trousers, with turnups, maker unknown (possibly 1960s again, given the narrow cuffs?);
    Modern silver tie, bought from a local drapers; and
    1930 J.W. Benson silver half-hunter with Edwardian chain.

    Worn with white M&S double-cuffed shirt, silver-grey barathea braces, black & grey striped socks, black Alfred Sargent Oxfords, black 1950s Stetson 3x homburg.

    Welcome views on the waistcoat and tie in particular!

    Real vintage style. Congratulations!
    But the tie gives me two associations: Funeral or Chicago gangster.
    The waist coat is useful together with a lot of other outfits. I doesn´t look too elegant for dayly use.
    Now, that you have entered the vintage road it is just to walk on. Welcome to the club.

    Happy New Year to all of you on this slightly spruced up SF - which surprised me a bit after coming back after a little break!

    Here's a new acquisition. I'm going to have perhaps half an inch taken off the trouser length, but otherwise this bespoke 1965 three-piece suit almost looks like it could have been made for me yesterday (or at least been a reasonable OTR fit). When I saw the measurements, I at least hoped it was adjustable as they seemed almost an exact match (to the half inch), and what's even more spooky is that first name and initials of the guy who had this made for him are the same as mine. With the slightly shorter, ventless jacket, it's just a little bit mod, which is not a classic choice but exactly how I like it. What's even better is that I have another even more navy blue three-piece made for the same person from about the same time - that one is to come. (Shirt is Dunhill, tie is a thick silver CT grenadine. Unfortunately, I can't take a good pic of the Carmina deep brown military-style ankle boots that I'm wearing with this today. You'll just have to take my word for it that they're fabulous).

    Experimented with a different PS but white linen seemed like the best fit. Does end up being a pretty boring outfit though.

    Axe - It might be boring, but it definitely looks good. :)

    I like the individual pieces (tie not so much) but they all seem to be fighting each other here. Maybe a solid tie would make it better. Tough to tell from the small pics.

    Nice stuff, Axel and Stitchy. CP, I'm always pleased to see UrbanComp's aircraft-carrier lapels. :)
