    Of course questioning is never wrong as long as it is sincere. Sometimes Styleforum posters, post degrading comments thinly veiled as opinions because they have an inferiority complex or feel an urge to self project a basic lack of respect. If you feel my hat is too big for me, or any other flaws, I can respect your opinion. Everyone has every right to express what they feel, as long as it is intended to be constructive. I respect everyone, as long as they are non-malicious, but if ones want to come at me with some passive aggressive BS, I may choose to call one on it.

    Whether or not one accepts your view on this, its size and - as you put it, 'regal' - nature means that it doesn't work in such a casual outfit as the one you just posted. Full DB suit perhaps, but with a cardigan? Not so much.

    I agree with you. That is quite sensible. From now on, I will leave my most regal hats with my most regal outfits.

    Thanks, of course I'll share my Savile Row purchases with everybody.

    I'm also having 2 AM shirts made ATM and next year a great pair of Lobb boots, which are designed and costed but I just can't quite afford this expensive year:)

    I thought that light blue fedora looked terrific with the navy DB you posted the other day. Not so sure it works with this rig. Seems too much of a clash of styles to me.

    The hat certainly makes a powerful statement. Reminds me of the brand-new Akubra Federation IV in slate grey sitting still in its box, in my wardrobe in Sydney. A full year after buying it, I'm still too gutless to wear it out yet.

    [​IMG]

    The "Federation IV" was actually designed by the guy who designed Indy's hat for "Raiders of the Lost Ark". It was commissioned from Akubra by a particular hat store in Katoomba, Blue Mountains (back of Sydney) and can only be ordered through them. I actually drove all the way up there to make sure I bought a hat which fitted, as I'm about half-way between a 59 and a 60 and getting a good fit is important in a hat. Probably blew an extra fifty bucks just in gas. But I do like the hat, and one day I hope to have the courage to wear it outside the house.

    Wear the f*cken hat - but perhaps not in Shanghai, lest you be accosted by large men in harem pants with 3 foot scimitars. It looks fine. And what's the name of the store? I'm going to my favourite Aunt's 80th at Wentworth Falls shortly and I want to have a look.

    Thank you Beneven!

    @Betelgeuse: I really like that outfit. It's very harmonic, perfect.

    @AAS: nice jacket and coat.

    @Spoo: looking good!

    @Anden: I also think that the jacket and trousers are too similar.

    Looking back on somethings I wrote, I need to not take some things so personally. I believe certain ideals so ardently, I sometimes fail to understand it is only my perspective, and in this world everyone has their own understanding of their reality. I can not dictate to people how to act, or " to have respect." and expect them to see it my way. I will make a greater effort to see things from outside my own vision of my reality. Especially when we live in the age with the internet, when once the message is sent, it is in the open, and people have the right to take it anyway they please.

    I love the sweater and color combo, but the lapels are too narrow IMO.

    I like the different shades of grey, but think the silk tie is off in texture. I think a darker grey wool tie would look better.

    Very nice look for the FC. The jacket is outstanding.

    Since it was made almost 10 years ago, it's a bit late to do anything about that! But seriously, it's a pretty exact copy, slightly scaled up, of a jacket my Dad had cut for him in 1965. It is indeed very Mod: narrow lapels, ventless and shorter than would be considered classic. But I love it and as it happens, I also think you're wrong in this case, because with a 2" knitted tie, the lapels are just about exactly the right width.
