    Kap, I like the ps a lot in the context. It clearly states you are intending this outfit to be playful...without it you would by a guy in a black turtleneck and a gray blazer...make of that as y'all will.

    I have to start using my dslr instead of the Iphone...

    SC is a caramel wool/cashmere from Oscar Jacobson.
    Tie is a wide rep wool/cashmere from Zegna.
    Trousers are from Oscar Jacobson. Dark chocolate moleskins.
    Light blue shirt from Bruun & Stengade.
    Wool socks in a blue herringbone pattern from Wolsey.
    PS is a super soft wool from Altea.
    And last but not least my favourite footwear. #8 tassels.

    Second photo is of my new SC (needs a pressing after shipping.
    It is a wool/mohair jacket in navy with a faint check pattern.
    The sleeves needs adjusting but the rest fits me well in my humble opinion.
    The maker is Raffaele Caruso Sartoria Parma.

    Before going out to an event, I ran into Freeman's and grabbed the jacket, shirt, and tie. Paired with these jeans.

    Top combo pic only, bottom is an acknowledged fail (too close in color to jacket, but my brown flannels are at the cleaners so I just have 3 pairs of light greys now [​IMG])

    The tie is a twill print, perhaps too formal for this, but it has a gummy, chalky hand, much like madder.

    My only comment is that the buttoning point seems rather high on the jacket, but that is apparently an Italian thing - some like, it others not. I'm in the later camp, only because high buttoning points look really off on me.
    Diaz, the tie looks really good with that outfit - I don't find it too formal at all. In fact that is something I could have put together myself :smarmy:. Here's what I wore today - a really grey and cold day outside, so I needed some colour in my life. Still a few months to spring here, so this is what I have to settle for now.

    Teaching New York in the 20s/30s today (or as near as I can get). Very heavy charcoal tweed 3-piece, needle-collar shirt with collar pin, wide unlined silk tie, vintage fedora, plus pencil moustache!

    nothing personal, because we have different styles, but im usually not really keen on your fits..but i gotta say, this looks pretty fuckin rad FM. ESPECIALLY the stache. you really should keep it. Fedoras are almost impossible to pull off, but it too looks great on you. I gotta say im really surprised how you pull off everything. Bravo son.:slayer:

    Anden, first pic looks better IMO. More contrast between jacket and trousers, and the silhouette on that jacket looks great!

    Cheers.

    I would probably not wear the blue jacket with the dark brown trousers. I would most likely go for something like a light grey flannell.
