    Thanks for that pic Gnatty, which serves to disprove all that bollocks about top must be darker than bottom and navy trousers don't work. It all looks good to me, my only minor gnattpick would be a smaller block checked shirt to match the level of formality of the rest of the outfit.

    Really? I've seen it discussed/repeated/concurred frequently on here. It bugs me as I have several lighter coloured jackets and a couple of pairs of navy strides!

    Could you find one? I'm curious as I've never heard it before.

    Darker jacket almost always looks better.

    In the case of gnatty's grey jacket, lighter pants (cream is really the only option) would look weird in a fall weight so dark pants make sense.


    Navy is too flat for the pants in an SC ensemble. Picture a shade lighter - its more casual (like the SC itself) and a little more interesting.

    I really like this look, it is a good example for a bit more generous cut. I had a couple of questions...

    Did you choose to add the ticket pocket? If it was your call, had you considered omitting it? I think it looks good on there, but I don't think it would have crossed my mind to add it.

    Fom what material did you make your hat?

    Thank you Gentlemen. This is a modern custom made suit that is fully canvased and is 100% silk. I found it on StyleForum Classifieds. Yes I did want ticket pockets, but I got lucky with this find. The Fedora was custom made by Black Sheep Hat Works and is made out of pure beaver. They custom dyed the color to be a medium bluish gray for me. A favorite color among business men in the Golden Era. To me it is the most elegant and classic of all the colors for a fedora. The Crown has a very Pre-War shape. 6 inches in an Open Crown, 5 1/2 creased into a teardrop which flares out on the sides. Brim is around 2 5/8. Ribbon 1 3/4.
