    It looks really awesome, especially with the windowpane on it! :)

    Nice shoes. Who is the maker of it?

    This looks very nice NYR! :slayer:

    Yeah UC I'm rather blessed. I use a retired Italian who I worked with for a while. He's had over 50 years - and we work well together. If only I had his skill...

    Thanks. If you don't mind me asking, what's the exact color? I think I'll be getting my new westbournes (in chestnut) next week and those look really nice.

    Those black oxfords are from Bexley, model name William. I guess they don't have that specific model anymore. Great beater shoes.

    Thank you gentlemen!!

    You may be bored with your outfits, but you definitely look very good in them these days, which is a far cry from a couple of months ago.

    Why not try a Prince of Wales rather than Glen Urqhart plaid with a medium green or deep red overcheck. Then get an optional waistcoat in the green or red of the overcheck, in a fabric that has a different texture.

    Somehow, I missed this a few days ago. In my opinion, this is perfection. I love the vertical stripes on the bow tie. The pocket square adds some punch to the overall look. The blue shirt with contrasting collar and double cuff is the perfect match for the camel wool coat--an item sadly absent from my wardrobe. Such good taste. And, I wouldn't mind having a "cuppa".

    Mine are chestnut, too. The challenge now is to find a matching belt.

    Threadbearer: I can't really disagree about my PS.

    Clarinetplayer: You're probably right about the socks, too. My subtly patterned socks aren't really in the right colors for this fit, though. More stuff to buy...

    SOS, I like that. The skirt is flaring out, though...not sure if the hips should be let out or the waist. What do you think?

    And you're sure that those suits are fully bespoke and not just made to measure? There are plenty of 'custom' tailoring places (such as Michael Andrews "Bespoke") that are really just MTM. Although... I believe Mr Ned does do full bespoke for under $1000.

    Thanks for the feedback B. This is the second pattern he's cut. The skirt has to be taken in, not the waist out. There's a few tweaks to this jacket to be done yet, but he's on holidays for the next month, so I'm just wearing it for the time being. Unfortunately some of it comes from having been an athlete for 18 years...

    First of all, thanks for thumbs up last time I post, guys

    Now, a little bit cold, but the sun is here and calls for hot colours (under de overcoat, there's a dark blue herringbone jacket)
