    It is this one!

    You can prob go to a BB store and ask them to find your size in it still, the online inventory is different than their in-store look up. Its a very nice, heavy tweed, unique pattern and a nice array of colors that are hard to capture in the photo (red, greens, blue, yellow). Full canvas too!

    From today, earlier. During the one hour or so it didn't rain.

    PS Please excuse the key bump in the right inner breast pocket.

    In honor of Kim Dotcom.

    Sorry fellas, no time to pose in front of my yachten (the seamap in the background must suffice), bitchen or Merceden.
    Have to hand over a big up/download logfile of my registered users in return for some goodwill in my trial.

    See you soon my friends. :)

I think if the tie were a few shades lighter, and maybe in a different pattern, I'd probably like it more. Tricky jacket to pair though; you must be having fun trying out different combinations for it.






    Today's fit is probably more one for the casual thread, but just about fits this one too I guess...

    PS. no apologies for the flouncy pocket square. It's the weekend, and I'll flounce if I want to! :p

    The jacket is polarizing, isn't it? To be honest, it's one of the reasons I like it - when the situation allows it, a sport coat in a thrornproof tweed with a gargantuan pattern both deflects and attracts. It's quite an anomaly, but there it is.

    From what Parker tells me (I got the jacket from him) the guys at the Armoury came across this vintage bolt, and Parker gave it the Chan treatment, as they already had his measurements. Fortunately for me, my measurements are nearly identical. However, the jacket does yearn for its previous owner's luxurious mane, and I try my best to assuage its cries with drams of whiskey. Whether or not it helps I cannot know, but I do enjoy the whiskey.

    As for the tie, I did in fact try a brown in a lighter shade, but it seemed to fight with the jacket, and this jacket demands accessories that play nice. Panta's silk, which is a dark brown, was the perfect choice, and reminded me of this pic of Eddie & the boys:

    And tattersall, well, it's a natural choice for tweed.

    UC, I think a solid tie would be much better. There's just too much going on when you add the dots.
