    damn oldog ... irrespective of disagreement on fit - you are straight killing it (especially with color coordination and shoes).

    your consistency in cut/fit indicates a conscious stylistic choice and i can respect that.

    i rarely use this: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Dege & Skinner (Robert Whittaker) bespoke shirt

    B - I prefer a higher collar on you. I vaguely recall this being mentioned before.

    Not wishing to bukkake it up, but I'm going to anyway; this is great MaoMao. if I was to nitpick I'd say perhaps the ensemble could have benefited from a darker tie..?

    All really good apart from that tie - sorry HF but much as I appreciate your bold tie choices that one is a big no for me...

    Yeah, this one probably crossed the line, but sometimes I just can't help myself! It's a disease... [​IMG]

    Two really nice colour-plays; very nice indeed! [​IMG]

    Great combining [​IMG]

    Great looking sweater and the cap suits you.

    Love the look of the fabric. Really nice. I'm not terribly keen on the overall fit, but can't pinpoint why... I think it might be because the pattern's vertical alignment is quite "bowed" outwards in a convex fashion, which seems to fight the concavity of the waist suppression. It creates a slightly confusing optical effect. But clearly a nice find!

    Cheers - I see what you mean about the pattern. It might be less obvious if I do get it shortened a bit. Alterations are going to have to be simple due to the lack of a local tailor beyond dry-cleaners. Plus the suit's too warm to wear that often.
    Boy that screams English country [​IMG] - And I concur- my first impression was that the coat is too long. Would be a particularly intersting fabric for a Norfolk...
    Thanks [​IMG]

    Very nice - tie and PS work well with the rest.

    Is Spring ever going to appear?

    Bitterly cold north-easterly wind, needing something a bit weightier:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Details:

    Boots: Barker 'Harrison'
    Shirt: TM Lewin
    Tie (wool): Hardy Amies
    Scottish lambswool sweater: Hawick Knitwear
    PS: vintage silk
    Cap: Kangol
    Vintage Suit

    Suit is a fairly heavy-weight Saxony Wool weave (I won't call it tweed as it upsets Manton). Vintage and unaltered - I don't think the fit is too bad (feel good across the shoulders and chest, sleeve length is good, trousers are the right length (when I adjust the waist adjusters enough...). I'm thinking an inch and a half of the jacket length might be worth considering. Any thoughts or suggestions please shout.

    Condition was immaculate, it was very reasonably priced and I don't think it shouts what period it was made too loudly (smugness points to anyone who can name the year). It appears to be bespoke for someone from a Reading tailor - no other labels.



    Excellent, MoK. Always enjoy your looks (as well as your surroundings).
