    I was eyeing those. Sadly I'm too big for their sizes. They look great, nice and warm too!

    Nice

    Nice, I have some mocha flannel special ordered in the Rudy. Walt was too slim for my liking.

    Thanks, guys.

    Yeah, these are the MTO Rudys. I am way too big for the Walt.

    I think the leg opening is too narrow even if the rest of you fits fine inside the pants, which I do.

    I'm also a 12E shoe so those narrow leg openings make the shoes look comically large and make a taller guy's legs look like swizzle sticks.

    Maybe it's just me getting older but I think that overly slim stuff looks really bad.

    I recently learned that leg opening is the single most important measurement for me when buying trousers. I too wear a size 12 shoe, and too narrow an opening makes my feet look clownish. It isn't about age, it's learning about proportion and fit, IMO.

    ^Pliny, I believe the "pleats" refer to a trademark of spalla camicia shoulders where the upper sleeve is much fuller than the armscye, so pleats form at the sleevehead. I haven't seen that on any suitsupply jacket however.

    I'm trying to figure out what the pocket square goes with. Your socks?

    Quote:First of all, sorry for the huge picture. Is there anything it clashes with? Obviously, I didn't spot anything on that front. I suppose the blue in the square picks up on the blue shirt, but it's not a big thing. It's nice when everything clicks very nicely together with matching bits of color, but I don't think that's essential as long as it all works. I see that square as an alternative to a cream silk, but with a little bit of pattern. This tie already pushed me towards a pretty wide color palette, and I worried that picking up too much on any of those colors would look precious. I suppose a mustard-colored paisley would be lovely, but anything with that particular green or burnt orange would look twee. Socks were very light gray, an idea I stole from Fred Astaire, who often sported mid-gray flannels, brown suede shoes, and much lighter socks. I think upr_crust has the same tie. I just drove myself crazy trying to find this picture -- he paired it with a plain light green satin hank. The light green is actually a great idea -- it has the same relationship with the purple in the suit as the forest green in the tie has with the tie's purple. I'm not crazy about plain satin hanks, and I think the light green works because the suit here is lighter than my coat.

    Correct. The Suitsupply 'La Spalla' (formerly named 'Jort' but they changed the name as the fella named 'Jort' is no longer affiliated with them - also it brings to mind cut-off jeans!) has Neapolitan shoulders.

    I'm not sure that example is a Jort / La Spalla as the pleated shoulder isn't obvious. Also the SS Jort is a three rolled to two not a straight two.

    In Europe a few months ago a new Jort line was introduced:

    http://eu.suitsupply.com/nl_NL/jort

    (You may have to change the website to eg The Netherlands.)

    The blue jacket is part of that collection.
