    Love that jacket, mind if I ask where it came from or is it bespoke?

    Ladies who post pictures of what they are wearing sometimes indulge in a bit of "Wall Scouting" and take pictures of themselves in front of something interesting, seasonal, or related to what they are wearing.

    For some reason, gentlemen who post pictures of what they are wearing often take pictures in their house.

    Here's today's adventure in "Wall Scouting".

    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers jacket and pink OCBD shirt, Polo Ralph Lauren tie, Squarextraordinaire pocket square, Orvis corduroy trousers, Gold Toe argyle socks, and Allen-Edmonds brogue suede Strands.

    Close up of the shoes and trousers.

    [​IMG]

    The trousers are what Orvis calls "Wellington Super Cords".

    Recently, there was a link in another online group to an article in "Country Life" about corduroy trousers.

    http://www.countrylife.co.uk/countr...t-country-trousers-148033#d5xpSkEVCbqftbRF.99

    After reading the article, I remembered there was a "Brisbane Moss" label in the trousers.

    This might explain why Orvis calls them "Super", but still can't figure out how the trousers relate to "Wellington" (Duke, beef, or boot).

    Thanks! I'm looking for a new jacket in something like this, or a glen check, all good ideas to consider. Hope it's not too chilly in Stavanger, I have a cousin freezing his ass off in Hamar :)

    Super casual, but I wore this to Inspiration LA last weekend! Thankfully I didn't spend too much.

    1930's Biker Jacket, Custom shirt, 501CT, Florsheim Imperials (thrifted)

    The jacket is one of the coolest things I've ever purchased. Got it for a huge deal, considering the details and condition! Shots of my friends' attire and my pickups can be found on my blog!

    It's cold here, but it's on the coast, and you know the Golf stream seldom leave us sub zero. Hamar can be cold. I pity your cousin, living the norwegian Siberia. But good for skiing, though.

    There's a lot of check jackets out there; it all depends on how much you want to spend.
    I'm looking for a new one my self and have an appointment with English Cut in Chiltern Street, London in a couple of days. I have use them for some suits, and I'm quite happy. The last years Tom Mahon, the head cutter, have been too busy to see MTM-customers, but I trust his shop-keeper; they are both trained at Anderson & Sheppard.

    Yes, inland a few miles makes a big difference eh? I have my eye on a Steed creation for bespokewrinkles in a glen check but am open to ideas. I will be in London in 3 weeks and might call in to have a chat based on your experience. I have little experience of having things made so far but it's encouraging to know they are too busy to see MTM. It can only bode well for the future! I have however learned to take note of house style and not to go to a tailor expecting him to make something other than that which he is used to making. Expensive experiments .. ;-)

    Steed I know something about, since I've been following them on internett, seen their work and been to their shop in Carlisle and had a chat. Not commissioned though. @Andy57 use them on a regular basis - that is my impression, and he look splendid in their stuff.
    I knew Steed started out together with Thomas Mahon after leaving Anderson & Sheppard where they both worked. But they didn't manage to cooperate and Mahon started English Cut.
    The style is basically the same and a good choice if you want very traditionally cut. Soft shoulders and a nice silhouette, but trousers are often full cut; no slim line there. They give you what they can, not necessarily what you want. Which indeed can be an expensive experience.
    I can give report on English Cut, Chiltern Street next week.

    I've looked at Steed for a while and decided their cut is one I like the look of, Planning to visit Carlisle to see them for myself. Edwin learned from Sexton/Nutter if I hear correctly? As you say, silhouette beautiful, soft shoulders and a generous lapel which is lovely to see in these days of RTW too short/too fitted/skinny lapel jackets. Seems to be a nice blend of the row and neapolitan and I think it's just the thing I need. I don't wear suits and get my trousers made locally so I just want jackets I can relax in. Previous commissions have all ended up being overly formal and I feel Steed might be (no pun intended) a good fit for me :)
    I will check out English cut as well, look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Edwin started with Sexton/Nutter before he joined Anderson & Sheppard.
    I think their style is quite typical british/Savile Row.
    I have used Whitcomb and Shaftesbury for some time, they are affordable since their bespoke costs the same as MTM, but want to go back to English Cut for now. I'm also planning to pop into Richard Anderson's, just to investigate what they make.
