@Shen I'm with @Braddock on this one; deets on the overcoat?
Cool overcoat - very nice
Really nice stuff today, gentlemen. Shen, I echo Braddock--that coat looks awesome. Anden, yes, one needs a pure cashmere navy blazer!
Tweedyprof, I love that tie--is it the copper herringbone from NMWA in a different light than previous, or is it a different beast altogether?
Thanks HT, the tie is a different beast (and it is kind of a beast): thick donegal rust tweed from Drake's a few seasons ago.
Found this jacket at a local vintage store. It's from the 1960s (so said the tag) and is in perfect condition.
Good day chaps
Tweedy is that an Eidos sportcoat? I was eyeing that one
I love when menswear comes full circle.
Do you ever wear bowties?
Oh yes. Not terribly often but I do have a rack full of them for when the mood strikes.
A tie from the 60´s and an old Daniel Hechter Harris Tweed jacket. But the pocket square is brand new. A serious deviation from my vintage policy.
^^^ Incidentally, it was @Albert Hal who inspired me to go looking for vintage stores.
You can´t imagine how much you can find for no Money at all at drift stores. The only thing it cost is time.
So true. It's fun too, like taking a step back in time.
Yesterday (new suit).
A mate just informed me that my tie looks eerily close to an RAF organization tie. It's times like these that I'm glad I don't live in England, for fear I might be crucified for wearing a tie I don't rate!
