    Looks pretty good. I think the sleeves on the jacket could be a little longer. The jacket looks really dark in the picture. I can't really tell how it fits.

    I really like how AAS has been describing his process, so here goes:

    I really wanted to wear these pants, so I started with them. I have been getting rid of a lot of pants in my wardrobe, and these feel like they fit pretty well. I decided immediately that I needed a light blue shirt, as the pants are brown PLUS they have a light blue stripe in them. I settled on this light blue/pink/brown striped one (this shirt may not be in good taste at all). I figured the brown stripe would tie well to the pants. With two already questionable items to start with I decided everything else needed to be plain/normal. I picked the navy SC next. I was going to go with a knit, but I'd already worn my brown knit this week, and my navy knit felt too matchy with the SC. I figured the point/semi-spread collar would be fine with silk, so I grabbed this plain slightly textured solid. I finished it off with some of my most conservative brown shoes. I thought of wearing walnut to pick up on the lighter brown/orange stripe in the pants but figured the shirt and pants were already bold enough. My brown socks were dirty so I chose navy, and topped it off with a white linen PS.

    Other thoughts:
    I wish I had more spread/cutaway collar shirts
    Maybe a pocket square with some pink in it would have tied to the shirt better.
    I REALLY like the fit of this SC, I wonder if others feel the same.
    Pants and/or shirt belong in the trash?
    Better tie color choice than brown?

    Really like the jacket, I was wondering if you could tell me where you got it from and the manufacturer?

    Thanks. The maker is John Barritt. I got it from Daffy's about two years ago. Daffy's carried a bunch of "designer" European brands at deep discounts. I got the jacket for $80. Daffy's has since shut down. You might be able to find John Barritt stuff online though.
