    Fantastic. The sweater really helps distinguish the outfit and tie it all in together.
    Haven't seen a bright orange tie here for a while. :slayer:
    Sexy lapel roll. Also, +1 on romeo's comment about the buttons looking interesting.

    They kind of remind me of the buttons on my Pal Zileri Sartorial sport coat, must be a custom order.

    Would love to see the green panta grenadine with this!

    The coat isn't camel, it's an Invertere Bearcat which, oddly enough, isn't made of bearcat but alpaca. I almost bought one from a member recently with the idea of wearing it to football games but chickened out.

    I looked up bearcat. Funny how an animal that fugly can make a coat that cool. Very unique. Wish I could pull something like that off.

    They're still around: http://www.alanpaine.co.uk/. I have some from mid 2000's that are very nice (though I've never compared them to the "glory days" era FC references) and still among my favorites. I tried to buy more several years ago and had a harder time finding them. Ended up buying a few in grey and navy from John Laing. The stuff on Laing's site is too contemporary for my tastes (tacky colors, quirky designs), but I like the basic, solid V-necks and full-zip pieces I have from them. Quality is good, IMO. The RLPL cashmere knits I own are nice too, though way overpriced at full retail.

    Usually I stick to SW&D but I thought I'd crosspost and get some feedback.

    Not my favourite fitting jacket by a long way, but the fabric makes up for it in my affections quite a bit...

    I really like this. Is the waist possibly too tight though? There seems to be a bit of pulling converging at the button.

    To my eye the lapels of that jacket are too slim for the tie and collar you have chosen. I think slightly wider would make the jacket far less subject to fashion. I also think the pants are a bit tight and you have some stacking going on; though I do know that both of those things are quite popular in SW&D so I'll assume that was a deliberate choice. The PS also looks a bit close to the color of the jacket. Greens or purples would have worked well with the blue, taupe and maroon.

    All and all I think it's a good look. Could use some slight tweaking but it gets a pass from me. :slayer:

    "Great colors, but...what's on the tie?"

    Thanks - the tie is really difficult to photograph because the colors kind of change with the light...it's a Battistoni, pattern is somewhat similar to the "floral swirl" pattern here:

    It's embroidered on, not printed

    I fiddled with the PS a bit afterwards, as I thought it was showing too much. BTW, how much do you guys prefer? I, usually, prefer only a little to show; not all this plumage hanging out all over the place! :p Oh, and what do you guys think of the knot link in the buttonhole? I saw this somewhere, and find it mildly pleasing. :)

    I sold a Battisti tie that looked exactly the same as that. Gonna try to dig up a picture.

    P.S. thanks for the link [​IMG]
