    They look totally different in the closeup. The other picture looked like some square toed fire-starter material. Strange.

    I am an American, born of goodly parents - who were of the Greatest Generation. My father was born on a Kansas farm and grew up with Dwight Eisenhower in the same school district - the home of the first American High School. My father also was friends with Patrick J Hurley, who became the Secretary of War in WW2 - which was where my father met my mother while she was working for Mr Hurley in the Washington DC office. I was the first to be born when my father married for the first time at age 51 at the close of WW2 (he served in WW1, WW2, and Korea before retiring as an Air Force Colonel). My mother was also born and raised with an exceptional set of examples in Washington DC.

    My parents embedded in me the ability to ask questions when I needed to learn. They taught me there are no stupid questions. It appears I have made a mistake in asking a question in which you felt to answer in the manner you did. If I have offended you, I apologize.

    I like it.

    Earlier in the day I asked another question of a similar jacket about the length. Your choice of length seems very close to the alignment of the tip of your hand. Is that a Long or Extra Long Jacket?

    Thanks so much for the tip.

    I'd like to ask you about the following 3-suit topic:
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/345054/3-piece-business-suits-back-in-fashion-for-2013

    Where can I purchase a suit of this kind?

    (I found one in the UK for about $1000 US - all tweed. But I'd like to get another referral).

    It's actually on the shorter side of regular (Boglioli). The length is exaggerated by the pose and also the fact my left shoulder is a fair bit lower than my right (again due to the pose). When standing properly the length is where it should be for such a casual, cotton jacket.

    Also, thanks for the positive feedback guys.
    @Stitchy, It's Hober so of course I love it but felt I missed an opportunity by not including some pattern.

    Is there a trolling conspiracy going on?

    Are you talking about the jacket being longer, not the sleeves? I think there might have been some misunderstandings about what you meant. Or are you just trolling?

    You got it right the first time - the jacket. I am also trying to purchase a suit for my brother, which is very large and tall, and most of the suits off the rack are in the Regular or Long, and his tailor says he needs the Extra Long for being 6'4" - which gives him a little more jacket length.
    I think they look great. Then again, since I moved to Montana there is always another reason to wear another pair of shoes for a different occasion.
    Are you an educator? If so, I wished my early teachers would have taken excellent care of their shoes back in the day like yours look. I may have had more respect for them.

    Good job!

    Rob mentioned that he only made two of those ties, odd that they both ended up in MD, :satisfied:

    Talk to me about the SC and trousers

    do you have the second????

    SC is zegna, got it for a pretty good deal at the woodbury commons outlet. trousers are j. crew ludlow flannel. had to have them tapered, but highly recommended. i was very surprised at how nice the fabric is.

    thanks for all the "likes," gents. :cheers:

    All new stuff... first time wear and thought I'd share. Sleeves on the jacket doing something weird but I don't take the best photos and got frustrated. I realize I need a bit longer shirtsleeve for this jacket but oh well... that's what the test drive is for.

    If I were to go for a wedding, I would wear a 3 piece suit with peaked lapels, a bow tie, white carnation, white silk hanky and black oxfords. A few more pictures (in colour too):

    http://www.szarmant.pl/garnitur-slubny

    Suit is made by Piotr Kaminski in Warsaw from vintage H. Lesser fabric (350g) from their old Formal Wear Bunch. Bow tie was made out of suit cloth. Also by Piotr Kaminski. I suggested diamond tip cut. What do you think about making a bow tie from suit's fabric leftovers?
