    OK, this is why one should always click the "spoiler."

    I saw only the chest shot. I like that. Lots of patterns but it works as the overcheck on the coat is subtle, the tie is sedate, the square doesn't match, I'd prefer a pale blue shirt but the white is not bad.

    However, when I see the rest, I go :facepalm:

    The coat fabric works as a (casual) suit but not as a jacket. It's too "suity" to be a jacket. That's a function of the color and the fineness of the pattern. I can't stand the slant pockts (natch). The way dark trousers are Nooooooo!!!!!!! Socks, oh god.

    This board has passed me by. I feel 85 every time I look.

    You're right, of course, nii, but I can't always pair this jacket with gray flannels. :) A man's got to 'speriment.



    Of course I'm fine with it, ace. I have nothing to lose except my sartorial ignorance. Enjoy the concert and post the pics.

    You don't look so fat to me gnatty.

    I can't get into all these pitch black trousers though.

    I don't feel old, I just feel like a disproportionate percentage of posters in this thread might be color blind.

    Well, at least you waited until I was home to burst the bubble. :laugh:

    But that jacket is a tweedy thick wool - how could that not work as a jacket?

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    For some reason the buttons look too close together. The shoulders and chest fit quite excerrentry. And it's a good length on you. Not a fan of the color though, but then again, it's your jacket. I know patch pockets and DB are scoffed at by some, but I think it's good to have something like that in one's wardrobe.

    This, is how a suit should fit. I'm not a bowtie fan myself, but even I have to respect how fucking slick this is.


    Jesus, people, again with the 4-pattern Bingo. I'm going to fill my card by month's end at this rate.

    A charcoal double-breasted with mid-brown suede shoes - a clash IMO. The coat is a bit sack-ish.

    I'm wearing custom made jeans and a shirt from trunkclub.com

    thinking about getting a custom suit from knot standard if anyone has any tips on this site... they're an online tailor with a twist...want to know if it's worth saving the money by using them.

    IST, this is a home-run look! (BTW, when are you going to follow Victor's lead and remove all the furniture from your flat so that it doesn't clash with your fit?) :D
