Didn't believe a pose could mean so much to a human being. My apologies Mr Spoo.
Long time no post. Got the green jacket about two months back and finally managed to get some pictures the other day:
Replaced the metal buttons with brown horn, and re-cut the pants.
Forrest green "Sidi" (judging by online research, a Mexican brand?) DB jacket.
Blue T&A shirt.
Red/blue/light blue tie.
Light blue plaid PS.
Gray H&M wool pants.
Brown Dockers belt.
Brown Sundial Norwegian shoes.
Comments and suggestions always welcome!
And yes, I know someone will bring up the damn "Master's Green Jacket" by posting this.
I don't think the first pocket square works at all; I think you should burn it! I like the jackets, for the most part (some of those lapels are great!)--as I can hardly see what's going on--but you could tie your tie knots a little better/tighter, I think!
Hey, glad to see you're back! I think, and correct me if I am wrong, anyone with more knowledge than me, the jacket is slightly too tight/short (sleeves are perfect, though!). While the lapels are quite 70s-esque, I like the jacket and the colour. The pocket square works well here, though I'm sure there are other combinations which would work quite well (like red/white, etc.). Like the trousers; not so keen on the shape of the shoe, but an improvement--so, win!

Regarding the pocket square, I'd go with a white linen with a colored border. Light blue? Violet? A navy pin dot would disrupt the clean lines and colors of this very classic look.
I'm not suggesting anything, but has anyone ever seen JapanAlex01 and Rob McElhenny in the same place at the same time?
I used to have a forest green DB blazer too; every time I posted it here, at least one person posted a comment along those lines. I really miss that blazer though (only got rid of it because it was a bit too big on me). It's a good colour for exactly the kind of look you're wearing (though personally, I find your interpretation a little too snug, short & tapered all round). A bigger problem, though, are the lapels. They really are very eye-catching, which is an unneeded extra distraction when the colour itself is so unusual.
Not that he's not handsome, but I don't think I look like him (but, very funny). I'll take my hat off next time, so you can see.
I LOL'd then I was like 'what does he mean by mullet?...'
I didn't know about the rules on cotton jacket/contrast collar...I just put it on based on color.
And burn the tie? but....but....I love this tie! I even wore it twice that week!
Yeah, I guess looking back at the picture and comments something is amiss...or everything! Back to the drawing board!
I cut the tag because it was too damn long but IIRC, it was a cotton/linen blend.
Thanks - maybe just the pic? The jeans are dark-ish brown at natural light.
For some of us, it's all we have.
Some good stuff here today Very nice guys!
