    I like. Except I don't get the tie tucked in look. It looks more sloppy than sprezzatura. Really like the pants tho

    I'm not one to judge as my dress sense is pretty pedestrian but don't you think there's too much layering going on? Perhaps?

    Didn't someone say he was in Singapore? I hear it gets cold there this time of the year...


    Leaving the outfit aside, I think that photo was taken in Melbourne during winter - layering is useful there as the weather can change on a dime.

    Yeah I like PG's new crop of plaid button downs. But, gnatty, if I recall correctly you've got a closet full of pretty sweet shirts yourself. [​IMG]

    What fold is this, on the pocket-square? I've admired the look in other photos but haven't figured out the best way to replicate it. ...

    Your tailor is great. He brings a consistent look to your jackets regardless of brand.
    Best jacket length, to my eye, is to the tip of your left thumb. A few of your jackets are that length.


    Thank you...but I'm afraid you're looking at the work of three different guys. If there is any consistency among them, you would have to blame the martinet of a customer.

    I think that all of my bespoke stuff is at the length that you describe, so you have good company.

    Yeahh, two outfits I've posted in a row...I like that thread, haha.

    It's a simple puff fold, but the square is pure linnen...the trick is to iron the square before you fold it, in order to get a rounded and nice shape (the linnen gets squeezed and the next time you use a puff fold it may look a little flat and wrinkled, but when it's ironed flat it keeps a nicer shape than puffed silk IMHO).

    Thanks, Cravate, I'll break out the iron and give it another try. In the photo it looks like it's folded over at the top, back to front, to create the "tunnel" near the lapel. My puff folds always look more like, well, a wadded handkerchief than a nice billowy triangle.
