A key fob?
Your keys are fresh off the boat? Wat?
You cannot be serious.
RTC is made in India.
Oh, word? I wouldn't have guessed that.
EDIT: And Isolation, though I said nice things about that fit in WAYWRN, I think the high vest works, but you could certainly go lower if you wanted.
@Isolation I thought you'd appreciate the image below. It's of the legendary Gianni Agnelli's younger self, who appears to have liked big drops and tight waist suppressions on his coats too. Enjoy.
Paul Weller gets a pass. The rest of you do not ( except maybe @NickPollica , who projects an air of dégagé cool and refers to his loafers as "hooves")
Edit: Style Forum Council?
In that picture of gianni, are the cuffs over the jacket sleeve?
@ridethecliche yes, it appears so.
I actually kinda like that, especially if the shirt was striped and they were horizontal on the cuffs. Cool.
It's defenitely something I would be open to as it does look appealing, but the most important thing is the top part of the shoulder line. If the former (pagoda) is a requirement for the latter to emerge, then sure, I'm defenitely open to test new styles.
And if possible I'd also ask for a knocked down shoulder tip with shirring to accompany the concave shoulder line. Bu I suspect that the concavity of the shoulder line would be somewhat offset with a spalla camicia shoulder tip. This is how one of my Sartoria Partenopea suit jacket is constructed. At least that is what it looks like to my eye.
Folks, I'm contemplating this fit again.
Which is this tie:
From a distance it looks ok, but I suspect that a tie such as this one will suffer from similar problems that a paisley poses and I really dislike most plaisleys. That is, a strong pattern that dominates and probably would look better under a DB or vest. Close up, it will be visually "overwhelming" though not as bad as some really strong paisleys. NMWA has a blue version but I think navy/brown a little less strong.
@TweedyProf I think the consensus previously was tie = meh but "hey, looks good in the fit pic". I've a couple of Cappellis, which are similar, though I haven't worn the burgundy one yet, but they have no white in them, nor the angular pattern...
I'd like to see a fit pic of the tie as above but close up. I'd say pull the trigger!
I opted not in the end, Cleav (thanks for your thoughts). It seemed likely to be a "worn rarely" tie and so, I passed (it was in the Barney's sale bin for $47...gone now, probably by someone reading this thread!).
Post your Cappellis!
Careful with the word cappelli
It's been known to enrage the noodles...
