    Best dressed public school teacher in the known universe.

    I like the fit of that SC - did you do anything different or is that your standard cut?

    I love those trousers, I think the PS work very well with the suit. all I see is "Balance" is that red or burg in the tie? and again this works, very nice from - Head and Shoulder's![​IMG]

    Sure thing. Pairing polo or rugby shirts with sport coats or blazers I think only works (1) with very casual jackets (yours is too constructed and clean, and also sports a pocket square, further upping its formality), and (2) on the proviso that the shirt and the jacket be kindred spirits (your rugby shirt is, IMO, too summery in spirit to go with the autumnal tweed coat). Here's an example of a successful blazer and polo shirt combo:

    (I would have ditched the hanky, but oh well ...)


    Regarding the colors, while I don't dislike them individually, I think they are too uniform and too low-contrast, lending the outfit a drab cast.

    Spoo, dare I say it, but this could almost go in the Good Taste thread. Well done!



    That's the truth. Well done, NYR. You always perfectly nail just the right amount of dressed up for a teacher.

    I like this a lot better, but I would have shied away from a white shirt. I tend to find myself using white shirts more and more for business appropriate suits and nothing else. I think an off white would have looked fine, but a pale blue oxford would have been even better. I can't tell what color the tie is, green?

    Well, I decided to rectify the belt loops problem myself yesterday. All I needed was a seam ripper and a sharp pair of scissors and I was done in less than 15 min. In fact is went so smooth, that I decided to take the belt loops off my other trousers I wear with braces(two more pairs). I imagine if you are not adventurous enough to try this yourself, a tailor would probably not charge very much for this kind of operation. But I like these DIY projects.... :)

    Really nice jacket!! Great colour.


    Great jacket, but the coat wins the prize. Really envious of that one!


    Another great jacket, you guys are really knocking it out of the park today.
