    It's because I don't know the brand name. A regular merino wool cardigan....

    Hi guise. got a copy of Flusser a couple weeks ago- like his stuff on pattern mixing-some nice pics of Barbera and Agnelli and a few other masters.

    I've been experimenting but need some help Preferences?

    ^ I think the first is more successful than the second, though I don't like the choice of square. The tie/shirt combo in the second is not to my liking, and the square feels a bit disconnected. Actually, I wonder what the first outfit would look like, with the second one's square.

    Nice look all round, but I'm curious: is the overcoat as plum-coloured as it appears here? Very unique colour. I like it, and hte fun gloves & scarf too. I like a bit of experimentation with colour/pattern in outerwear, generally.




    Definitely a chill in the air now...

    (PS. if the thread will forgive a little light spam, if anyone wants to buy the RLPL tweed suit in my sig, I'm open to reasonable offers! :) )

    If you can make it a size or two larger, I'm interested!

    trying to decide if i should keep this tie or not.

    colors are terrible in the fit pic, all are properly represented in the collage. and i dont know why my left arm sleeve is all wonky. maybe my arm is twisted or something, or its hung up on my watch. who knows.

    Subdued today, with hopefully classic blues and greys, complete with black gunboats. Unfortunately, the picture quality (and odd stance caused by having to leap back quickly to get into place for the shot) means that you can't see the perfect break and cuff on the new Epaulet Walts... everything else, you've seen before. The only thing I'd want to change perhaps is to have white square, although I can't resist having a little something that throws things off a bit (this one is a pale blue and white PS with some embroidered detailing). And I know some people don't like the mod-style lapels on this jacket and what's more, it's also ventless - the horror, the horror! - but it was modelled after one my dad had made for him in 1965 and I love it.

    I think you need to try either a smaller tie knot or a larger shirt collar.

    Thanks - actually it just needs tightening, which I only noticed after looking at the pictures.

    Not the first time I've heard that... [​IMG]

    Fit looks pretty nice. For me, a shade lighter in the shirt (or darker in the tie), and it would be great. BTW, was this a deliberate riff on what politician's tend to be fond of wearing, by way of homage to the day?
