    I really like this—I wish I owned that sweater and that suit, even though sack is not really my jam. But I would definitely go with a solid, textured tie here. It's a lot.

    I'm also kinda into no square right now, personally. Not everyone's bag, but if you're considering skipping it, full tweed, pink shirt, and fair isle is the time to do it, I think.

    Great fit! Applaud your decision to get some high-rise Luxires made (I haven't regretted mine for a second); really that's the only thing wrong here IMO. I think you'll like the open quarters on this jacket much better once you have higher rises.

    I'm known to be a bit of nut on the subject, but get a good pair with the button on, or just slightly above, your navel and see if you aren't much happier.

    @blekit nice tailoring and cinching on the waistcoat. Everyone should be able to see how good your tailor is.
    @pliny my favorite fit of yours so far
    @gs77 nice swagger

    Very nice, an outfit for some fancy outdoorsy activities. The suede snuff shoes work beautifully with that jacket. Who made the jacket?

    Thanks very much. I agree, whenever I wear a sport coat or a suit, 9 times out of 10 I'm wearing trousers at my navel - it feels more natural and looks much better IMO. I've been wanting to get an olive pair of trousers made with these specifications for a while, glad I finally ordered.

    I have no idea, I do beg your pardon. A cursory search throws me to Harrisons of Edinburgh whose page won't open

    I'll carry on though please let me know if you confirm your suspicions. :D

    Thanks. The tie and square where the last additions. I think it looked great without either of them. I always wear a tie to work though so I felt odd not wearing one. I may try it again on the weekend with no tie and square.

    Today. The same as yesterday. I had the pants lengthened as suggested. The tie is navy with red stripes.

    I got a new tie. I wish I got it yesterday. I would have worn it with this outfit.

    Thanks for the thumbs and feedback, all.

    I was wondering if I could hear some opinions on this suit. I think I should have it taken in a bit – but should I also have a set of buttons added above the existing ones, even though that would make it the dreaded 6x1?

    I still wish the new tie was solid if wearing it with fair isle, but then again I'm boring and this is definitely better than the day before!

    Proper Cloth + Conrad Wu + Shibumi = not the worst combo around.

    This is so fucken rad. No bullshit, classic fit. I like to wear pants like this in winter. I wish I had a whole suit like this though now.

    Have a shave though..
