    Sorry for being late to the party, but you guys are really posting A LOT lately...

    Looks very similar to a LL tweed I have.

    I think the wider lapels make the suit appear more like others we see posted here (so, for many, this is a good thing). The shoulders, however, look much better on the tweed jacket IMO. The wider ones seem to be made up for by a straighter construction which makes the overall result look just so much more conventional and negatively unobtrusive. The tweed is unobtrusive, too, but it shows that you care about your clothes (if only to the fellow clothes geek).

    Hi upr_crust

    I'm new at this forum (have been a public viewer for a while now)

    I would like to write that your vintage outfits suits you very well. Great tailored suits and you combine everything so well, looks perfect! For the pictures you uploaded now is great, but I dont like the scarf it's so bright and colorfu, doesnt go great with the rest of the outfit. Maybe some other scarf a dark blue paisley maybe?

    NOTE: I'm not from the US everybody and my english writing is not that good, so take it easy with me :)

    Start of another week... chinos have become too short over time, but I got a new similar pair the other day which are now awaiting hemming.

    Shoulders are constructed exactly the same way but the different materials and difference in number of wears make them fall differently. Breanish tweed is very spongy and stretches (some tailros dislike working with it for that reason) so the shoulders settled down much faster. It's also older and has been worn more, which also helped the shoulders settle down in a more natural fashion. I'm sure you've handled Minnis flannel, it's a fairly hard flannel and doesn't stretch at all - so it will take much longer to settle down. It's also newer.

    Think of a sheet of paper that you curve as if you were going to fold it - it's light but strangely holds a straight shape because of the material itself. If you were to do this with shirting fabric, it would crumble down. This is what it happening here: difference in the property of materials, not construction (which is the same).

    I think it looks great. The lapel looks narrower than on some of your other stuff.

    ^Self critique of my photo after looking at it. I need to let the waist of the jacket out about .5-.75 inches on each side. I am guessing it will drape and flow better and still have shape.
