    District Check gentlemen, not gun club.

    Tie is grey cashmere houndstooth, not similar in scale or color.

    what exactly is the dif between district check and GC? is it that the DC is just a single color check with another color overcheck and GC is a multi-color shepherds check with an overcheck?

    maybe the pic mislead me regarding scale similarity, oops.

    I always thought what we called gun club was a type of district check, but what do I know.

    Regardless, that is a beautiful fabric :inlove:

    besides the DC being larger in scale (GC's can obviously be larger in scale), it has a pronounced windowpane in one color and the base checks/boxes whatever you want to call them are a single color.

    edmorel, there's some weird stuff going on around the midsection. Plus, cannot abide the tie-below-the-button show. And the sleeves seem kind of, um, generous. But that's fit, and that's kinda outside the scope of this here thread. So, I think the gray of the trousers is too cool for the jacket (at least in these pics). The Dinkelackers look pretty reasonable here, though; much better than in the shoe porn pics you posted earlier.

    Those are all really nice fabrics, Ed. Esp the trousers in that semi-up-close shot.

    Ed, I'm glad you posted. Your old fits on SF were quite inspiring. Look forward to you posting more fits in the future.

    Perhaps it's called district check because it looks like a street map?

    stitchy don't be so sure that I am right re: district check/gun glub but that is my story and I am sticking with it.



    the pants aren't going to get any better unless I lose weight or get new pants made. So far I am deciding to lose weight and not get any larger pants but something tells me that larger pants will win out. The midsection stuff, I was doing silly right before the pic was taken but anyway, your critiques reminded me of something I wanted to say (soapbox) which I'll go post in the WAYWN threak.

    +1. If you had someone take a picture of you wearing this in Moscow, you would break the forum.
