    V-l-V and gazman bringing the heat. Spoo: love the new jacket (slightly wider lapels would be the icing on the cake); don't be tempted to suppress the waist IMO.

    ^ it's a navy worsted flannel. Unfortunately, I can't recall the exact cloth as it was made 5+ years ago. I want to say it's probably Harrison's but might have been anything really. Sorry I can't be more help.

    Nice combination, Vaux. What is the fabric used?

    Interesting, it almost looked like it has a sheen, so I thought it might be a wool/silk blend. Regardless, I like it.

    Nice pattern on the tie, probably works really well with the "worsted", can't really see the texture of the suit. Maybe a "brighter" PS for some pop?

    Of the cloth or of State? I doubt either would have any understanding of what you wore though.

    First time I've seen Spoo in a three button jacket and it looks good.
    Now I'm waiting for the day he shows us a hard three. The world might spin off it's axis then!

    It is a HSM American Modern sportcoat I got off our B&S. It is a pretty nice cloth, wool and cashmere blend, in a really cool pattern. I have not had it altered but it has nice waist suppression and pretty soft shoulders. They seem to be a good deal on deep discount in non staple patterns like this. Thanks for asking!
