    Yeah, Victor, I could maybe be on board if you didn't have double cuffs on…

    It became August again this week. White linen it is!

    They arent that rare, trust me. :laugh: But aside from doing a full FU suit of this material, which I do not want to do, the only way I can think of to tame it down would be navy blazerify it. Not even a tie. If you can think of another thing to put with these pants instead, I would love to hear it.


    I do not know how to cook. But I do know how to defrost. And how did you know I had kartoffelsuppe on deck? :paranoia:


    Good eye - Im actually porking up though, not dropping it off. This jacket used to be looser on me than most. The pants are a bit fuller than I usually wear, this is true. I kind of like it in this heavy cloth though.

    I had a navy cardi out, Im glad you said that - but put aside your feelings if they are what I assume them to be on the pants - I dont think I was in the wrong here in terms of what I did on top/bottom. What say you?

    I like the pants. I don't like sportcoats with patterned pants, but if you are going to do that, a blue blazer is probably the best option, and here I don't think it is bad. Or the top of a denim/python suit, if you have one of those lying around.

    Nii - Those are some sweet ties :nodding:

    Malford - Loving that suit as well as the shoes! Also, you have a sweet deal on a pair of Vass double monks on eBay right now!

    Spoo - Those pants are great! :slayer: Did you get your green with purple/orange stripe tweed from Malford? I vaguely remember seeing it on his website (or maybe not? :confused: )

    Thank you for your interest in my "antistyle" jeans combination!

    I am glad that my little joke has helped you to smile. Hooray! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You know what I think when I see lizard jean jackets, french cuffs and spit shined balmorals? [​IMG]

    Glad to hear it; we don't want more shots of you undressed in your underwear again... ;)

    Welcome back!
    Thanks, but just to add another thought to this, I personally would say that my jackets are generally on the long side (while stil being within of the acceptable spectrum IMO). Part of me also wants to say this is in keeping with the generally English cut of them, but I leave that to the knowledgeable clothes historians here to testify to or against.






    Got this tie right at the end of last winter, so today is my first chance to wear it...

    I love damn near every one of your fits. And they come from an apparently endless vault of awesomeness. But the greatness in this post is the connection between the "rustic ranch" and dawning cuff links for the occasion. I would never connect those two together.

    This is fantastic. I especially like the way you have the images setup on your blog so you can click back and forth while you remain in roughly the same pose. A thesis on the way a couple of fit changes can completely alter the line of a jacket. Now if I could just learn the lesson...
