    I like this jacket a lot, as I mentioned in the thumbs up box. I want to ask the more knowledgeable members what they think about the way the jacket "hinges" on the button, causing the fronts of lower half the jacket to pivot out from each other a bit, creating flare. Could just be a breeze in the photo, but if not, is this considered an issue or not. I ask because one of my DB jackets does this (to a slightly lesser extent) and though I quite like the effect, I do wonder if it's technically correct or not.


    I like the shirt/tie/suit colour pairing. If ever an outfit needed black shoes, this is it, at least from my perspective. Leaving that aside, I suspect life has treated you quite well since you first got the suit. Clothes have an annoying and inexplicable tendency to shrink and become taut in a few places when life is good... ;)




    Weather forecast suggested some sunshine in the afternoon, which did indeed manifest for maybe half an hour. Still, any excuse to wear some lighter colours in the middle of winter, including these flannel trousers that I picked up before Christmas but only just got round to collecting from hemming:

    I would stay with a solid shirt (white or light blue) You can wear a diagnol stripe tie, but I would probably do a grenadine or something like that. Stripe suit, stripe tie, and stripe shirt would be too much IMO

    I want to like this, but the tie/pant matchy matchy is a little too much IMO. Leads the eye in the wrong way.

    I was thinking more on the lines of a sartorial change for the nutcracker.

    Overcoat is The Finnish Navy coat. It is dark navy. I am going to change the coat with black buttons.
