    Interesting, never heard of silk squares being regarded as formal, that would be a white linen, as far as I know.

    I like three button jackets and I like the narrow lapels too Orge. This may not be your typical fit but a nice ensemble nonetheless.

    It seems like the debate continues about whether such a thing as SF groupthink exists or is just a myth, but it seems that narrow lapels are almost universally met with criticism on here. How did this go from being an opinion or a preference to a rule? Is this foo sycophancy? Or a backlash against the Mad Men look of a few years ago? I dunno, but in the right context as you have here, slim is fine with me!

    Two that I loved from the other day. A great casual look from Org. Foo said something about stripes that wide on a tie being difficult to wear, but I don't know if I agree. You do it well.
    I also love how SB uses the lighter tie here. I think the subtle clashing of patterns between the suit and tie leaves just enough room for that PS to work.

    Great points, and very helpful. On the MOP buttons, what about a more spring/summer look? A brighter tie and lighter trou -- like in the beige family?

    If the buttons are as light as they appear in the pic, you almost need white pants, IMO. But, lighter all around would be better.


    I liked 'em!

    It's by Herringbone Sydney, an Australian label not widely available outside of here. They have a webstore but don't list all that much stuff on it compared to their full range.

    As you commented just after I offered my opinion to him, I'll feel free to respond.
    If this opinions keeps popping up you should try to understand from where it came from. Tailors developed it. Why? Because the jacekt looks more balanced if the width of the lapels are equivalent to the width of your shoulders. Some unbalance with a purpose, but the general advice from someone who buys a RTW jacket is too buy a balanced design.
    In his case you can see perfectly the result of narrow lapels, it weakens the subjects, gives a more jovial feel to him. In my opinion, Orge outfit makes him to look like an American undergraduate from the 50's, but: hey, it's my opinion.

    That has more to do with his stylistic choices (which I like) than thewidth of the lapels imo. I understand the issue of proportion and balance in regards to suiting and traditional dressing, but you do know that slim lapels can work on many people. I think Og's lapels are fine though
