    Jacket is hilarious. For the right setting, it would be great. I can't think of many such settings. Summer party at a friend's home, or an evening with friends at a riverside pub, perhaps.
    Or a crime scene, where it would be great for confusing the witnesses.

    Love the shirt/tie combo, HF. That a Drakes shantung? Edit: Oops. My bad. That's their silk/linen, not the shantung, right?

    Feel free to bring on the harsh criticisms.

    Thanks,

    The button-down collar on the shirt does not work for me.

    Usually I'm all for dark ties, but I like your choice today, HF. It's nice with the pink shirt. Very cheerful.

    Really like the blazer with the pearl (?) buttons, too.



    Thanks. I was in a cheerful mood. [​IMG]

    Yes, they're mother-of-pearl buttons. The jacket is actually part of a suit, and came with a choice of smoked grey or white MOP buttons to attach. It's a lightweight part-lined suit, so I opted for the white buttons precisely so it could do double-duty as a spring/summer odd jacket. It still works as an unconventional suit too, despite the light-coloured buttons.

    I totally sucked today, contestwise and in any respect

    Funnily enough, I like today's look from you, esp. the tie.

    Love the shirt/tie combo, HF. That a Drakes shantung?

    Edit: Oops. My bad. That's their silk/linen, not the shantung, right?


    Correct; it's the silk & linen. And thanks!

    One of the best first WAYWRN posts I've seen. Everything is awesome except the shirt, a spread collar would look really good I think. Good job overall though, really solid performance!

    -3°, snow and slush, and a bad migraine precludes me from this challenge [​IMG] Absolutely loving the entries so far though. Very well done gentlemen!

    This jacket is criminal genius. Run in and do your deed and they see a white jacket. The bystanders viewing the aftermath see a man fleeing in a blue jacket.

    I forgot it's contest day. This is just a regular fit for me. No linen.

    p.s. I fixed my tie knot after photo.


    P,what is the fabric of the jacket? Is it RTW or custom?
