    I'm gonna cross post this since I stumble upon this French country-style tweed suit.

    Aside from looking dated, I really like the texture of the suit for its interesting fabric and its uniqueness. So what would you gentlemen suggest to pair with this suit? Shirt, shoe etc.

    The jacket is 3 roll 2, here are a few photos taken by the seller:

    I decided to take a few photos of the suit myself, in attempt to capture the texture of the fabric as well as a better representation of the color:

    Very interesting buttons!!
    I have absolutely no clue about the suit or the makers at all, can any experts guide me toward the right direction? That would be very helpful.



    What are your thoughts?

    ^ I don't like it. Okay if you are going out for a hunt, but where would you wear this?

    With all that is going on with the cloth and the buttons I think you need to go very simple and solid with the shirt, tie and shoes or else the eye will go spastic trying to see everything.

    I don't wear button down shirts with tie very often, but, I had in mind that this combo would work.

    And the pants are navy.

    I would change the PS color. I think they always look better if they are totally unrelated to the shirt and tie, or only pick up one minor color in the shirt or tie. For example, a yellow, or a paisley with green and burgundy.

    Can't tell about the pants, but they seem to dark for the jacket.

    I have a burgundy/green paisley PS, I'll try next time.

    About the pants, I really don't know what to wear with this jacket :confused: Maybe a light grey, or washed jeans (such as the ones in IST's last fit)?..

    You know, I am not too sure about the trousers either. I am thinking light grey, but somebody else who is more of a sport coat guy might have better ideas.

    That is sort of my thoughts too. The fabric itself definitely attracts a lots of attention. I've worned the jacket as a sport coat with black pants and tie-less, and it was great. But wear it as a suit it'd be much more challenging as I would imagine.

    I'd go for cream.
