Teh Inis hath landed!!!
Waiting for boss to leave so I can try on.
@gdl203 Just bought that sweet camo Master-Piece backpack. Looks awesome! I half regret not signing up for that stupid NPC so you could have subsidized my fall from grace but your price is already so much better than Mr. P that I would have felt bad about it.
FWIW, I think the brown/black herringbone in the field coat is hands down the winner but all the swatches look awesome.
Correct - just a reasonably heavy layer of wool & cashmere blend
FWIW, I had to go MTO...
When you're the boss, you don't need to wait.
I did think the brown corduroy from the initial lineup was the perfect material for this item.
Some day I hope. In the meantime, sigh...
In the meantime, bathroom selfies.
That runner up is beautiful
gdl, I would like to know what you think is a coherent way of wearing those kinds of guncheck/sportcoaty ties. If you have pics from your Archives of Coolness, that would be even better.
I'm not gdl, but I think they work especially well with grey flannel suits:
I don't know, it still looks off to me.
Edit: no hate, but since it's right up there -- something I've seen in all your pictures, ubl, is that your dress collars have an unusual rippling going on at the edges. Lining aside, it looks like the stitch tension on the topstitches is weird, causing a lot of puckering. Is this intentional?
I'm not Greg, either, but I like this fit of Foo's.
nvm. clearly beyond my grasp.
it's pretty common with unfused collars (you can see it a little on 's pic there as well)
but also, I do not iron my non-white dress shirts, so they end up a little more rumpled than most.
Navy worsted is good. I agree with unbel about a flannel suit - great match for me.
Or you can be a little more adventurous and use with a different plaid sportcoat, but I would personally add a layer in between to break it off :
The plaids here are inverted but that should give an idea
