    Is that a Manchester Citeh tie?

    Drakes, in the colors of Citeh.

    for my untrained eye this jacket looks "big" and sort of shapeless for your standards?

    I think a brown or orange p/s to pick off the orange or complement the blue in the tie.
    Thanks, dawg. I'll try that next time.

    Here's a thought:

    Ah! Good call. (I see that great minds think alike.) And when may I expect delivery of that lovely orange pocket square?



    Hmmmm..

    Feed-back requested on new DB by new Goon.


    Looks a little full for my taste...perhaps its because the jacket is shorter than your usual? You could make a brown paper bag look good though, so his is cool, and a nice change of pace for ya. How do you find that 8oz wears? I was thinking of having a navy Blazersuit made out of it for summer. SB.

    At first I also think the stance is weird, perhaps too high. However I think the issue is the coat is a bit long for him. In general I think this is the best X#[email protected]# made jacket I have seen.

    +1. Looks very nice PG. Especially the shoulder and lapel. I like the wrap distance, too. But, I bet a tiny bit shorter jacket would really make it perfecto.

    I'll preface this with I don't know what I'm talking about.

    PG

    I think the lapel and shoulders are great. I do think that the length is just a bit too long and the positioning of the buttons makes it look even longer.

    The pant's seem a bit too full, for the close to perfect (in what I like) fit of the top.

    I think more and more I don't like seeing pocket flaps. Makes for a cleaner look for me.

    Spoo:

    Like it, minus the collar shape. I need a batch of those pocket squares.

    Dawg:

    I really dig the whole vibe. You have just been added to my DTO File (again).

    Nice Spoo - what's the jacket, if you don't mind me asking?

    Thanks Kentish... its a Corneliani.

    Hallway Pimpin' Tuesday ... ​


    Nii.. the fit is outstanding, but teh pimpin is supposed to be done inside the rooms! [​IMG]

    You get a reprieve this time because the shoes look so nice (who made 'em?). Next time, who knows? [​IMG]

    Haha... John Lobb Towcester.

    ...

    That tie is like lace stockings around your neck. Just awesome.

    I like the combo a lot.

    Suede shoes are just awesome.

    pocketsquare is discreet yet has a pop to it with the contrast edge.


    Only thing I don't like is the shirt collar. I think the points are too long.


    Thank you, Lee - I was experimenting with a longer collar on this shirt, as I thought being so tall and on the stringbean side of shapes, a lengthier collar would suit me. I agree with you totally that it is a little long, not terrible IRL, but point taken. Ill stick to my spreads for future projects.

    Whats the fabric there...its cool!

    Thanks! The jacket is Corneliani, its a 17.75 micron wool.

    Thanks JP - please see my above reply to Lee... and yes, this is one of my favorite squares. Its a Robert Talbott.​

    [​IMG] It has a slightly "droopy" quality to the silhouette, esp. in the close up. I like that a lot. Others here will not, I suspect. It's good to have variety in a wardrobe anyway, IMO. [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]
    Holdfast I can't take it anymore and I have to say this.. You're a damned good looking man, a damned good looking man. ok that's enough of that. [​IMG] As always, a great combo. I like that patina on those shoes..which are?
