    how do you work at p johnson and armoury?

    also - your carmina cordovan boots are [​IMG]


    I move back to Hong Kong and The Armoury in 3 weeks, but have really enjoyed working with Patrick the last month or two. A great guy, and a great product.
    The shirt is Thomas Mason Silverline, the Royal Twill. The handmade option from P.Johnson with the ruffled shoulder, cuff and yoke detail. Expect PG to be in a few as time goes on.

    After yesterday's quantum leap (not perfect, but progress comes in fits and starts [no pun intended]), I'm slightly bewildered by today's fit. I think it may just be that I can no longer get with the narrow lapel.


    Bewildered? Sorry you didn't like it.

    ^To be honest, at least in the photo, the coat looks like a suiting material and there appears to be too much waist suppression. Khakis, IMO, are very hard to pull off without looking like a schlub, unless you are like Parker, and I think a wool pant would have worked better. I always think comments about tie width in relation to lapels or chest size or whatever are silly, but this tie looks too wide. Cant really tell its color. Finally, PS just looks out of place to me. Can't tell collar fit, but shoulders look nice and it looks like you have a nice watch. SOrry to be harsh, but you asked for a critique. Feel free to disregard my comments.

    thanks! The jacket is a linen/wool blend. Hard to tell in the pic. I agree on all counts once it's pointed out to me. Not harsh at all. It's information I need!

    Fred, ndw, ob5 - thanks. That suit is easily my favourite DB. One day, I'm going to go the Far East and get it copied (with a few little adjustments in various places ) and get a few more suits in this cut. Somehow it extends the leg line and slims me down without being tight anywhere. In fact, it's actually looser on me than some other jackets, and yet looks slimmer.

    This is not mine, since it's an old picture, but these are my funkiest shoes.

    Do you still wear them? They seem way too pointy for you!

    TGIF Cross post from consrvative thread. Not my craziest shoes, but I had actually forgotten about any challenge.

    You and me both, as I mentioned! Funnily enough, I like everything about this look except the shoes. I find wholecuts very tricky. They should be formal, given the lack of adornment, but that very lack of seam somehow makes them casual-looking to my eye. I've never bought any, as a result of this cognitive dissonance re: their place in a wardrobe, but if I had any, I think I'd tend to wear them casually rather than with suits. The shirt/suit/tie combo is wonderful though; the tie adds a nice splash of light-heartedness.

    would like some critiques....not sure about the tie...i think it may be a bit too much blue with the tie shirt and jacket.

    Jacket is way too tight; look how the lapels bow outward. You may be able to alleviate the effect by reducing the waist suppression, but the real issue is that it just isn't roomy enough for you around the chest.

    Is seersucker popular much in Blighty?

    Not really, though it appears occasionally around water on sunny days.

    Looks pretty good from what I can see. From what I can remember, I've thought some of your jacket's have been a bit too short/tight, but this looks more balanced. A full pic would make judgement easier, of course.

    A very rumpled Saturday look - Ariston Linen, Thomas Mason Shirt, Drakes Knit, White Jeans, Hermes pochette.

    Very nice combo; loving the colours and patterns. Are the jacket sleeves a bit too narrow for you though?
