    Just started putting up a list of thanks to some members for getting this bad-ass thread back on the rails, starting with TobiasM and DC, then went through the pics and realized it's all been awesome as of late.

    DC, that's pretty good! I think it would be better if the hank complemented rather than matched the tie, though.

    Tobias - I like this fit for a number of reasons. First, it works as a whole, for e.g. the suede shoes with a green knit, a paisley pattern square and herringbone are all within the same genre of the "casual" or "country" vocabulary of classic menswear. There are no conflicting signals. Second, textural and pattern contrast are well executed. Third, very soft (I assume unstructured?) shoulder and collar roll add another, more geometric level of harmony. Last, you look very comfortable and the vibe it gives off is that you live in the clothes. As the saying goes, you are wearing the clothes and they not you.

    Don Cologne - your best SB fit so far. Gone is the "X" at the button-point. Waist suppression looks good and the narrow sleeve works well for you. Only constructive criticism I can offer is did you consider a square with more contrast? From afar they look close to the same cloth.

    Thanks McBindle, this is what I call a nice feedback ;)
    The shoulder is unstructured(like the whole jacket) and fits really good. I always combine the jacket with knit ties or cotton ties, I think silk doesn't fit to it. I really feel comfortable in these clothes, this is my favourite summer look. [​IMG]

    Is the jacket linen or wool?

    I guess looking at it again, that was a dumb question. Especially since I own a blue linen SC.

    MF, The shirt and tie look great with your suit. A club collar is a nice change of pace regardless of what others say. I really like everything about the suit. Great overall look.

    @ Butler - thanks for the info
    @ DonC - another good fit for you
    @Tobias and admirers - Arrow was a brand revered by the English mods of the sixties, originally made in USA IIRC. Never seen them in ages until. I saw some Arrow shirts recently in Sears and they looked nothing special at all, so it could be that you have a vintage there and the brand has been more recently appropriated by some made-in-the-far-east knock 'em up brand.
    @Victor - very nice texture on that Donegal, is it really cold enough in Brazil to need a winter SC and sweater too?

    I've also seen some "new" Arrow shirts, but they were not as good as my shirt and they didn't had the nice BD Collar.

    Interested in what you would have picked. I'm thinking a predominantly madder red (dark, muted red) or brownish hank would have gone well. Or maybe a blue madder with some hint of color present elsewhere in the ensemble?

    Thank you, I bought the cloth from a local shop. Brazil is a country with continental proportions, encompassing many climates. I'm at the extreme South, here we face -15°C at winter, enough to warrant me a 30oz tweed Ulster topcoat that's in my closet.

    Brrrrrrrrr!

    We are always presented with Copacabana Beach as the quintessential image of Brazil! I know its a huge country and its your mid winter there, but never thought of it getting that cold even in the south!
