    Still cold in NYC, with threat of a dusting of snow. Same overcoat as yesterday, but change of hat and scarf.

    @An Acute Style

    I agree. I went with this tie in the last minute since I like the color. I have just the wool tie for the outfit.

    @daDudeson
    @Stugotes

    I agree that it looks like it in this photo. In reality there is enough contrast.

    Thanks for the feedback guys!

    Please explain then why Swain Adeney Brigg has on their website that they were the creators of the hat Indiana Jones wore in Raiders of the Lost ark?

    Somewhat optimistic today, but the lovely spring like weather got me busting out the panama for its first outing this year.
    Only SF Family item is the cotton Panta tie, although the Polo silk sportscoat was ebayed from a forumite, @mack11211.

    I am trying to justify this orphaned suit jacket that I thrifted a couple months ago.
    I like it a lot and feel I can in fact wear it without looking like I don't know how to dress. I've paired it with flannel trousers and anchored it with a cutaway royal oxford and toned down cashmere tie.

    I feel in terms of formality nothing is out of place, I am not trying to be ostentatious or a menswear peacock. But is it a fruitless venture to wear an orphaned jacket, even this cool recent one? If you felt I could still pull it off, what suggestions do you gents have in terms of pairing or switching buttons?

    I feel pairing contrasting trousers is a good idea and perhaps switching my these solid brown buttons for horn buttons will help play down the fact this jacket appears to be orphaned.

    ^^^ arnathor, I don't really think that works outside of it's original context. In others words, I don't think it can be pulled off as an odd jacket.

    Arnator, I'd have to agree. I think you should swing the opposite way though and wear it with jeans if you're up for it.

    After wearing a couple times I realized I need to lengthen the sleeves maybe .5" The Shirt is a very light blue which is not at all apparent in these pictures. Thanks Obama.

    I've got one and a few other PS's but I semi-forgot and mostly am working on my comfort level with them. I stand out at the office as it is a bit, and I feel a cloud of pretentiousness over me when I wear a PS over here. I'm working on them. [​IMG]
