    What an elegant DB coat! So well tailored. Query: What model of Wolf vs Goat trouser are you wearing?

    Six patterns today. The tie and vest are cable knit. I'm wearing a new pair of boots today. The soles are rubber. They're very comfortable and warm. A little workwearish, but I like them. I may have the jacket let out a little bit.

    It's actually one of few remaining RTW, from Huntsman.

    Th WvG are insanely awesome. Golden Grey Bloodline. The construction is out of this world good. i'm trying to convince Mauro to do more runs of more CM friendly trou.

    Great! The jacket looks fine as it is IMHO.

    My only doubt is about the PS: is there any reason behind a low-contrast one? Because I think this one kinda blends with the jacket. Anyway, using 6 patterns without any sort of clashing is rather remarkable, and overall the outfit looks very "natural"!

    It's the new more affordable / casual line from Isaia. @NickPollica is the Creative Director (or something similar), I believe. There is a thread elsewhere on SF CM:

    Fascinating bit of kerfuffle earlier - reminds me of my own little contretemps back when I first started posting on this thread. Although I think I pulled my head in a bit quicker.

    Yup, this thread is what it is. No point trying to change it. One just has to grow a thick skin, feel the WAYWRN zeitgeist and use its Force to learn.

    Today's fit: jacket the same as yesterday, everything else different. Friday is a bit more cazh so I've gone with a colourful watch and playful shoes. PS and tie are new.

    Sigh, I think I know which one it is. I couldn't pull the trigger on it (never spent that much on a pocket square even after a Mr Porter's discount), and very sorry now that I see how versatile it is over your last two fits with it! Looking good.

    I still think it's a fairly ridiculous amount of money to spend on a square of cloth, but I never see them for less. I can't claim to have sampled all of the fine hanks on the market, but I have checked out a lot. The Drakes are my hands-down favorites.
