It's not at all versatile, but it's great for winter black tie.
Indeed. Why not?
Save B&Tailor for something Greg isn't carrying with Formosa. Perhaps your first odd jacket? A navy blazer?
Yeah, country club kind of describes it, except not balding and fifty-something, and it's in the city. I spend many a rainy Saturday and Sunday afternoon and evening in hotel bars, members clubs and cocktail bars. London is perhaps one of the few cities where such a jacket wouldn't be out of place. Jeans aren't even allowed in some places, not that I was planning on wearing it like that.
I was thinking of getting it with some drape, and perhaps completely unlined, sleeves included, so that it'll be very comfortable to wear. When it comes to the fabric, a tartan appeals to me as a sort of reminder of my time in Scotland, but a navy or midnight blue might be more versatile. I do like the idea of wide shawl lapels (shaped like TF lapels) and jetted pockets. It would be the perfect bar jacket, not as formal as a dinner jacket, not as standard as a navy blazer, and not as informal as a cardigan or jumper.
Anyway, this is just an idea, as I'm in the process of making a list of things to buy over the next couple of years. Communists aren't the only ones with 5 year plans.
Because you said you wanted a suit from B&T. The Formosa sharkskin from NMWA is the exact shade I would go with, but I thought you wanted the bespoke "experience". If not, get the Formosa!
I think it makes sense to everyone to get from B&Tailor something that I cannot get from Formosa.
The sharkskin would be nice but it would make more sense to just get it from NMWA.
I am so done with navy colours.
How about a mid grey fresco then? Like what I'm wearing today...
That looks like a light grey. Must be the lighting.
I want a pow suit in non-flannel.
It's on the lighter side of mid grey.
Get a PoW from B&T then. Better yet, make it a three piece!
I does not like them 3 piece suit
You're crazy. Why not? Don't say because it makes you look old. This is beautiful:
Them vests is making me look old.
No one in my office wears vests.
Vests seem unnecessary
Your office sucks.
Noodles has something seriously wrong with him. I think his brain is defective and he should ask for a new one for christmas.
Every men in my office could use some help frOM SF. This is a place whee people don JosABanks suits with no shame and spend over $100 on alterations on JosASuits. I have trIED to tell them it does not make sense to invest over $100 when the suit is $150-$200
