    Funds are not allowing anything at all for me this year, apart from things I've already commissioned and paid for...

    ... which luckily includes a three-piece grey flannel pinstripe! ;)

    I'm a bit late to this discussion and it's probably been canvassed already, but I'm pretty sure that I remember that when he was here previously (before he took a break from posting on SF and used Tumblr instead), Victor said that his photographer at that time was the son of his tailor and that the son was a professional photographer. I don't know if it's still the same guy taking the pictures.

    Thanks for the thumbs yesterday. I was surprised you guys liked it to be honest. I thought it was a bit busy and some of the colors were a bit too vibrant together.

    I got these pants back from the tailor, but he didn't slim the thighs like I though he would. I tried to wear them without this change, but I will definitely be taking them back.

    A bit hard to tell from these pictures, but probably yes. What exactly do you mean by "suppressed through the quarters"? And I think in this combination there is not enough contrast between jacket and trousers. I'd take dark grey or cream trousers instead.
    Nice!

    Today's outfit. Just got these trousers back from a tailor. Still trying to figure out what the weave on this thing is [​IMG]

    P/S: Yeah I know, the jacket collar sucks. I got it before my SF enlightenment.

    I cant tell from the picture, but If its a diagonal it's probably a twill or a pick and pick. If not, probably eiter a plain weave or a hopsack (2 x 2 warp and weft).

    Gentlemen - thanks for the kind comments on yesterday's posting. Mossrocks - "svelte" is an ongoing struggle, er . . project for me, but thanks for noticing.

    Midweek, and sunny - a perfect day to start bringing a lighter weight suit into rotation.

    Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt - Thomas Pink
    Tie - Hackett, London
    Cufflinks - SFA
    Braces - Paul Stuart
    Shoes - Florsheim Royal Imperial (Magnanni)

    Very nice, @Anden ! Being a fan of (micro) houndstooth shirts myself, could you post a close up pic and perhaps share a ref. number?
