I cant believe it took her this long.
^^ at least there's still navy, midnight etc
@Claghorn should skip the "green jacket" and go for a full green suit.
I personally am looking into both green donegal suit and olive cotton suit to cover my fall/winter and spring/summer bases.
Wore a vintage BB suit to an interview today since the wool is heavy as heck and it was 15 deg when I left my apt this morning.
Hoping to get the BBGF reweaved when I'm sure that my next warm weather interview (in miami) will be a safe time duration away...
Navy and midnight are included in blue. Brutal, I know. Stitchy, I relayed your comment and she nodded emphatically.
Still, I'm allowed to trade for blue jackets. So I've a plan in the works. Mwah.
Claghorn, your wife is awesome. I was told to stop buying navy suits when she saw just 5 navy suits in my closet. And I only have 5 suits. Lol
Looks like my next suit has to be from B&Tailors since April is approaching fast.
Will it be navy?
After talking about navy velvet jackets, what do you guys think about this jacket? I think it might not be versatile enough with the silk lapels, making it appropriate for black tie events only. Maybe I'll have Luxire make one with self facing shawl lapels if I can find some tartan cloth on the cheap, which would be more of a smoking than a dinner jacket.
Neither here nor there.
I dunno, it's definetely "there," just "there" is on a balding fifty-something at a country club in 1956. I say that with great affection, of course.
It would be more versatile with self lapels, but I'm still not sure how or where you'd wear it. The satin lapel limits it to the evening, for me, though probably not black tie. Honestly it would be better with open-collar white shirt and jeans (unless you have a time machine). How would you feel about peak lapels, instead of shawl, Monkeyface? Maybe hacking pockets, too (a well-matched angled pocket on a tartan jacket is a thing of beauty). For me, that would be as fun, but a lot easier to actually wear.
PoW, light grey most likely.
or just a solid light grey.
B&Tailor Shark Skin Grey Suit
I rest my case...but I would go with a lighter shade.
then why not just get the Formosa sharkskin?
