    Thank you, gentlemen, for the comments on yesterday's attire.

    Photographing oneself in a new space, with a camera that is acting balky, in the early morning hours is a challenge. Today's photos are something of an experiment, and are also designed to show off the apartment, possibly to the disadvantage of showing off what I'm wearing.

    Today's suit is the one that I wore to Italy earlier this month, albeit with some adjustments - the jacket was shortened about an inch or so, and the jacket waist was taken in, and the trousers shortened and tapered a bit. I will let you judge whether the alterations were a success.

    Suit - BB Regent
    Shirt - Lewin
    Tie - Harvie & Hudson
    PS - Robert Talbott
    Cufflinks - BB
    Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand
    Overcoat - Turnbull & Asser
    Scarf - Paul Stuart
    Hat - Selentino

    Four pattern fit, if elephants count as a pattern. This, apparently, is the last one of this Vanda silk/wool GP. Thanks @Mr. Six for help scoring it.

    I guess not, @Mr Knightley
    Tom have tried to launch his on-line MTM, but as far as I understand there has been some problems in production, and he is rather trying his in house MTM, offering three different levels of quality and price. From none to much handmade in the suit.

    I also went to visit Richard Anderson, and they are probably as good as they come. Spoke to nice person. But I didn't get the feel for them. They have RTW, MTM and bespoke. No flaps on the house style jackets. Nice to see they actually work back stage in the shop; both sewing and pressing.

    Thank you. It is actually very pleasant to wear such high trousers; like being embraced.

    If you've ever been here, you know how cold and often windy it is here early in the morning this time of year (particularly if you are old and don't weigh very much).

    Capas cap, Brooks Brothers tweed jacket, Tattersall vest, and BB#1 stripe tie, Johnstons Of Elgin scarf, L L Bean yellow OCBD shirt, exploding generic pocket square, Hebden Cord cavalry twill trousers (showing the effect of losing weight), and Bass saddle shoes.

    Piece-Of-A-Person Picture taken inside (where it was warmer) early this morning and showing my watch (Hamilton 992B Railway Special) which seldom shows in my pictures.

    Suit is a... SuitSupply, as usual. @An Acute Style I own 14 of them, out of 20 suits or jackets. They are mostly from the Lazio and Hudson cuts.

    I posted about this awhile back, but it's time to get real: that Fedora is a train wreck on you. You look like a little boy wearing his dad's hat. I mean it's just Dark Helmet levels of huge on your head.

    Other posters here pull it off very well but you need to let it go. Everytime I see that hat it just dicks up the flow of all these otherwise great fits.

    It's here to stay permanently Gruff and this fedora is my best fitting garment. If you don't like that is fine. Stop derailing the thread.

    @clarinetplayer love the Barbour over sports coat look. Rocked that quite a bit this year but currently too warm for it for me.

    Suit yourself, but I can confidently tell you it doesn't fit. That hat is the only thing that derails this thread, BTW. Enjoy.

    A few random images from the 1930's (from which I believe @Tibor takes his inspiration):

    Suggests to me though hats were worn tall, they weren't quite as tall as Tibor's.

    I do not take inspiration from those hats. I take inspiration from more elegant and formal fedoras of the Era which were much taller. [​IMG]
