    @lawyerdad Looks great. Unbutton that top button on the Formosa SC though!

    Agreed, thanks. I was following my tailor's suggestion to button it the first few wearings to soften the roll and forgot to unbutton it for the first photo.

    3 button-roll-2 is a very common type of jacket in Naples.

    Shoulders look really great though.

    That I know. I guess I didn't recognize because of the fact it was actually buttoned! :embar:

    Yeah, you can't even tell they're totally uneven (mine, not the coat's) from a poorly healed broken collar bone and general bad posture. :)

    Very nice Lawyerdad! And thanks a lot for sharing some pictures! That S&C scarf is insane.

    No restock planned for the spring on that color IIRC, but stick with a 42 in Buttero sneakers, not 41

    @lawyerdad That all looks very very good.

    What did you have your tailor do with the Formosa jacket?

    Agree that the shoulders look terrific and the shape through the body looks nice.

    What is this Schneider lambswool jacket? Did I miss something?

    And OS jacket :fistbump: :nodding:

    I believe that's the GRP lambswool A1

    I love the clear frame Lunettes sunnies btw !

    I'd highly recommend the raglan sleeve crewneck sweaters as a low cost starting point for Monitaly. I wore it out for the first time on Saturday night and received several compliments on it. It's really easy to wear for a cool casual look.

    Now, if I had even more disposable income I'd go for the patterned sport coat. I don't know how often I would wear it, but I know for sure that I would be the coolest looking guy in the room with it on haha.

    Thanks. Took in the body a bit and finished the sleeves. Sleeve length was pretty close pre-tailoring, just needed some minor adjusting and buttonholes.

    You're right about the lambswool - brain cramp on my part. Getting old sucks. And those Lunettes have definitely been growing on me. I think I like them more (on me, anyway) as winter glasses than as summer shades. Fortunately, out here we get lots of winter days with bright sun and glare.

    Thanks. I'm wondering about whether I'll end up wanting to take in the body on my Formosa jacket a little. As I said before, I like my tailor, but I kind of don't want him to touch the jacket for what I think is an improvement only on the margin. Will wait and see.

    Again, yours looks fantastic.

    Oh, and I'm glad for the clarification on the lambswool jacket. Might have had to demand a recount if it were Schneider. On the other hand, the GRP looks pretty much perfect...
