    I believe it's a pinpoint oxford fabric from an Australian mill. Great weight to it. I remember being thrilled to find an oxford tattersall. If I ever stumble across any similar fabrics, rest assured, I will be purchasing some more shirts in them.

    Thanks! Unfortunately the only black shoes I have are a half size too big on me, the heel flops every time I wear them. Bought them off ebay so can't return them either :(



    Looks great! I'll be treating myself to one of your suits come graduation in December

    Don, I would have liked a slightly lighter colored sport coat, but that's just me. Looks great. I would definitely wear something like that.

    That Clags fit seriously is great. Just well done on every front. Suit, shirt, tie, square, shoes... Great all around. Superbly done.

    clags, the leg opening a bit wide for my personal tastes, but it seems to be working for you. beautiful fit.

    Thanks for all the thumbs guys. Both Friday and Saturday.

    re: Leg Opening. I'm not a huge fan of the narrow openings; my hips are a bit wide and so I like the extra cloth at the bottom. Also not a fan of no break (which looks great posed, but not as good as a half or full when walking or sitting).

    If I had narrow hips and no ass, I'd probably be more inclined to go with the narrow opening. And if I had an awesome sock collection, I'd occasionally sacrifice the break to show it off.

    fair enough. though i think there is a lot of middle ground between between narrow and what you are rocking. but, like i said, i cant do it but it seems to work for you. :)

    @Clags - Suit is awesome and I don't mind the width of the leg opening or that there are no cuffs. Rock on Sir.

    Been a long time, but special occasion as I got my Yellow Hook tie last week. Beautiful piece of cloth it is too - glad I got the last "summer plum". I should mention also that Rob is a thoroughly nice guy to deal with. I've bought bits and pieces from a few SF affiliates lately and it's definitely the way to go.

    That is way too in focus to be you.

    Is it that cold where you are already? Yikes. Anyway, the coat is really nice, but the fit seems a little off unless you're standing a bit awkwardly. Looks as if the balance is a bit off, perhaps?



    Surprisingly Busy Sunday:

    The trousers look a bit wide in the pics, but are actually one of my slimmer pairs... they don't fall as cleanly as they should though, which is why they never look great, esp. in static photos. One day I'll get a properly fitting pair of light brown flannels but for now, they'll do.

    No the fit is realy good. It´s hard for me to stand relaxed when I make the photos. It´s not that cold, but I get some PMs with questions about the coat and today is with 15°C the coldest day in the week. And I want to try the new tweed/deer leather gloves and the shawl I get this week. For the 5 minutes of photoshooting it was ok and after without the gloves/shawl and only with a shirt under the coat I sweat not much.
