    ed really answered this already, however, there is subtle texture here providing surface/visual interest. the suit is twill and the cashmere tie has texture to it. enough to be not dead boring, but not so much as to take away from the intended austerity. as ed noted, had i gone with any more texture or pop, this fit would be neither here nor there.

    basically,everything was intentional, and in my strong opinion, aside from the socks, though they are pretty conservative, just little dots on a navy ground, its just right.

    see here.

    glad you liked the shoes tho. :)



    nothing weak about patch pockets. just a matter of taste.

    patch pockets are casual. Not for a business suit... but as I said, you just could have gone for a somber look, not cbd

    Really, read the thread I had linked to.

    The point of the 'Amazing Blazer Suit' is to fit all pieces decently well, and nothing perfect.

    It works decently well as a Conservative Suit as much as it does at trying to look like a blazer, more than an orphaned suit jacket.

    I get what you're saying, it would look better with different pockets, but that's not the point of the Amazing Blazer Suit. And, viewing Stitchy's ensemble as an Amazing Blazer Suit worked in to a CBD outfit, it does pretty well.

    they are a casual idea, and on a casual jacket they complete the casual-ity. but i see them here as a casual touch to an otherwise CBD/austere/stark suit. i think they work great here. i can only handle so much boring at one time.

    i never read the blazer-suit thread and my decision here had nothing to do with it. i do not plan on wearing this jacket without the pants. ever.

    What?

    But it's navy.

    With patch pockets. If that's the case, I'm with RDiaz

    whats the difference? you admit that the idea is good, so who cares if i never wear it as a blazer. you are clinging to an idea just for the sake of the idea, not for what things look like. thats bad imo. i still love you though.

    you can dawn whatever look you want, i think i could beat you up if it comes to that. :)

    I think if you got it to be a suit, 3xPP is not the best idea. If you got it to be a BlazerSuit, 3xPP is a good idea.

    I stated, "It does all these things fairly well." If you intended for it to do just one thing, be a suit, then it does it fairly well. But could have been done better. That's all, really.

    It's like buying a jeep. It drives on the road alright and offroads alright. But I wouldn't buy a jeep to just drive on the road. That's not using the full potential.

    Plus, it's a perfectly good blazer, better than a suit jacket.

    <3 you too.

    Well, I honestly think the suit would have been better off with jetted/flap pockets.

    But my blazer would have been better with patch pockets, so it's a draw. [​IMG]
