    I bought it from a Drapers book, but when it was delivered, it turned out to the standard VBC S120 flannel with VBC selvedge and a Drapers tag attached. I dont recall the name of the Drapers book, but I am surely you can find it in the VBC flannel book. FWIW, you can find a very similar design in almost any book.

    True, I never knew VBC s120 flannel could have such a nice drape. In fact I always find VBC disappointing. Anyway very nice garment.

    Ouch. Hope the finger's feeling better now.

    This jacket is one of your early commissions IIRC, that subsequently underwent a fair bit of surgery? It came through it well, but the scars are still a little visible... something about how the fronts look below the button when it's done up, esp. in straight-on shots. I don't think this issue is apparent on your more recent jackets, so I assume the pattern's been altered since.



    I like what we can see of the suit; a full-length shot would be nice at some point if you get the chance. I'm starting to believe that I just have an aversion to that tie design (in any colourway). :)

    Every time I've see it worn in this thread, I've felt it hasn't quite worked with the outfit.

    Hmm. I love the suit & shoes. I'm not quite feeling that shade of orange in the tie (too vivid, not "burnt" enough). I'm not a huge fan of the layered cardy. Colour is fine, I guess, but the collar treatment and top button position feel too high to wear with a suit. Then again, I don't naturally have an affinity for Italian-inspired styling details, and I suspect this choice may fall under that category. By the by, I have a suspicion that we may be wearing the same (or v. similar) square today, albeit in a different colourway. Oh, Styleforum, what have you wrought...?

    With apologies to Irving Berlin:

    The snow is snowing, the wind is blowing
    But I can weather the storm!
    What do I care how much it may storm?
    I've got my tweed to keep me warm.
    I can't remember a worse December
    Just watch those icicles form!
    What do I care if icicles form?
    I've got my tweed to keep me warm.

    Off with my overcoat, off with my
    Fratelli Orsini Italian Cashmere Lined Peccary Gloves
    (from Barney's, size 8, $255.00!)
    I need no overcoat, I'm burning above!
    My chest's on fire, the flame grows higher
    So I will weather the storm!

    My attire today is something, for those of you who believe in understatement, to recoil in horror. Too bad for you - I'm enjoying myself.

    Suit - New & Lingwood
    Shirt - Hilditch & Key
    Tie - Charvet
    Braces - PRL
    Cufflinks - Benson & Clegg (close-up), DVVS (full-length shots - last minute change of mind)
    Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC
    Hat - Selentino
    Scarf - Frank Stella, NYC
    Overcoat - BB

    made for a veritable giant (6’7”) in 1960 by Denman & Goddard of Sackville Street, holders of a Royal Warrant for King George VI
    The original owner was around 3” taller than me, mainly in the legs it would seem, those I can alter myself, but with working cuff buttons, the sleeves are another matter.
    Unfortunately there is some moth damage, as you would expect for a suit made more than half a century ago, so I may not bother with any more expensive alterations, and wear it with the sleeves turned back like so! It was dirt cheep so who cares!
    Also this is my new tie from Gerald & Diana at Vanda Fine Clothing.

    As requested, a close up of the tweed for Malford, sorry about the focus...using a different/better camera that I am not used to.

    (p.s. the hight of these trousers is amazing, way higher than anything else I own, and I have high waisted trousers!)

    You're a tough man to please, HF. It is indeed the Drakes Moghul square. I had a set of three but sold the other two. Really wish I hadn't now...


    Stunning fabric T - any chance of a close-up?
