    Is that a Pal Zileri sports coat? If so, how do they run? I.e true to size etc?

    No it's Herringbone, although the cut is very similar to Pal Zileri which is a tad on the slimmer side - at least in my experience . I normally take a 52R (107cm chest) and in Pal Zileri 54R is pretty much spot on.

    I was toying with the idea of using my cream jacket today, but couldn't really justify this in the middle of winter even if it is a cashmere/silk mix.

    Instead I went with this. I kind of threw down the gauntlet in favour of grey jackets yesterday and felt I had to follow through on that......

    Apparently my Friday fit meets the criteria for the challenge this week. Pretty tame submission. I'm in Indianapolis for a meeting so I have to be conservative.

    more good stuff today, gents!

    i really wanted to do something awesome for this, and i had a great fit planned, but the weather has really held me back. so im posting this from earlier this week.

    i generally dont like to post fits in the FC that i dont reeeeallly love, but this is what i have available, and i cant resist playing in a FC. :(

    plus pingson hates it, so its extra fun to post it in his challenge. derp.
