    Rob, the coat looks great, but there's something a little wonky with the pants when seen from the side. Are they a little trim? The left side doesn't hang well.

    Is this an end of school reward?


    Thanks, not sure about the pants. They were an older pair that I had made and the jacket is new to make the suit (I wore the pants twice, figured i'd get much more use out of a navy suit than odd navy pants) so yes, end of year treat was the jacket! FWIW the pants are the only pair he made me with belt loops instead of side tabs, and the shot was the end of a very LONG day...won't be wearing this until Sept, but I'll be sure to take better pics then.

    fit looks pretty good. I don't think I would feel appropriate wearing longwings and warm colors like that in the summer.

    Thanks, but I live in longwings!

    Last night, prior to the Summer Fete at the Metropolitan Museum, and this morning, facing life after a mass quantity of wine, looking at a day promising thunderstorms by afternoon (hence, no suede). Last night:

    Sharp!

    An almost subdued (but patriotic!) implementation of the seersucker. The plain, white PS works better here than with the tan. You definitely looked cheerier last night... [​IMG]

    First time wearing this jacket as a SC instead of the full suit. 70/30 cashmere silk. I think it works, what about you? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    one of the rare occassions.

    just don't feel this tie in the composition.

    Works well I think. I'd imagine it's because basically it's a sportcoat made into a suit jacket instead of a suit jacket made into a sportcoat. The pattern and ticket pocket scream sportcoat.

    Excellent; a recent favourite of mine, I think. I need to become more willing to break up suits like this occasionally. Don't know why I don't try it more often.

    If you liked those you're gonna LOVE these:

    Lapo is like a blunderbuss. Sometimes this works in his favour, as in this look.

    Thanks. HF: one button, same height as my other shirts. The knot turned out small today

    Cool; must have been a combiantion of that & the photo angle.

    Some crappy iPhone photos today. It was the first truly warm, sunny day we've had so far this year and a great excuse to break out my summer GTH pants

    I'm smiling, but not shaking my head at the same time. I think that means it works. [​IMG]

    Last night, prior to the Summer Fete at the Metropolitan Museum...

    Very smart indeed.






    Casual today...

    I think it works quite well.

    Yes, and perhaps the combination of an overly tight knot and quite some tie space, so the knot moves up, if that makes sense.

    What shoes are you wearing? They remind me of Steve McQueen-Bullitt's.

    Crusty, you've come a long way, baby (despite that tie, which I'm not the biggest fan of). Your pose is much more natural, your countenance more jovial, your fits more... fitted, your combinations more subdued. But you haven't lost your personality.

    I like it in this context - I think it's fun for a summer tie.

    I think it can work, but I also think I'd rather see it with light tan pants. I'm not anti-grey sport coats, as some on here are; however, I generally think they look better with lighter color pants.
