    Best for Sunday, next-best for work, third-best for the garden.

    DB with no tie?

    Marzotto says it's OK as long as you don't imitate him

    Well I would say that may be fine even without the double ties. It always depends on how you know bring. I see it well with a turtleneck sweater.

    I never think DB with an open shirt collar works, even with overcoats. Time and time again I rather keep my tie on in the bar/pub/restaurant than take it off after work...or look in the mirror after putting an overcoat on and go back to get a scarf.

    I agree with you 100%, it's always gotta be a tie for me and the higher the opening gorge on the jacket, the better IMO. A lot of my mates wear DB suits but it's more of a winter thing; they don't look right open. Quite a few mates are going do the path of having a jacket only made and wearing them with complementary trousers, shirt and tie. Looks great if you can carry it off, sadly I don't have the figure to carry it off these days

    I don't think it's that bad of a look. Starting to like it

    Hi, this is from another member but I can't recall whom does anyone know?

    What does everyone think of it? I really like it and want something bespoke very much like that, though I'm relatively new to tailored suits. I believe to note with this jacket's cutting is the low set buttons, relatively large amount of drop, largish lapels? I'm also thinking perhaps to have it made with pagoda shoulders? What do you guys think?

    Pretty sure that's Claghorn and very sure it's an awesome fit.

    I agree on the whole, though I came across this picture of Vox in the back of a taxi recently, and think it looks good.
