    nothing wrong with that jumper, it goes well as an accenuation of the casual. Is it a tank top?

    and that tie is superb.


    Question - what are the trousers? assuming they are mtm? I have a pair of oatmeal harris herringbones that look similar in colour at least.

    Thanks...it was chilly this morning.


    Thanks. Trousers are Epaulet Walts...Coffee Tweed, from their last Factory Find Trouser run.

    Tie is from: www.yellowhookneckties.com web site under construction but there's more info on facebook for those who are inclined to look.

    I personally like this one the best and would work nicely with many trouser colors and jeans.

    NYR - so...much...tweed...in a good way.

    To be honest, I do believe you should have the trousers lengthened a tad. They really should cover about 2/3 of the shoe. Even if you prefer a 'no break' look, they need to be longer.

    Very cool. Is this a vintage find?

    Having seen your beautiful jacket from the London Lounge fabric (reddish brown with red overcheck), your recommendation doesn't surprise me :) Thanks!

    Funny, if my girlfriend didn't tell me, I wouldn't know you were talking about the sweater (vest).

    The pant could be lower but the cuff size is impressive! Is that 2 inches or bigger? I thrifted a pair of khakis that are too long and I'm having a 1 1/2 inch cuff put on to make it just right. I'm not bold enough for a bigger cuff yet.

    Drat! I haven't been a 40L since I was an undergraduate in the late 60's. Oh well, I'll just save up and have MyTailor.com make me one--minus the belt. A half belt will be quite sufficient since I can't stand stuff dangling around and can't be bothered buckling and unbuckling a belt that has no function.

    That looks like 2''. Looks goot, although pants seem slightly short to me...
