do not necessarily agree. the hard on for exact equal tie and lapel width is overplayed here, and its much more an issue when the tie is wider than the lapels, not visa versa. in any case, murls look works well.
None of my SC's/Suit Jackets fit me anymore.
Dang, I would have bought that from you in a heartbeat. Exactly what I am looking for. Very nice jacket.
Looking good! It's very strange, I have never heard of Flannel Bay until I saw your post this morning. I went to some stores on my lunch break today, and picked up a Flannel Bay sportscoat from a local boutique, reduced by $1000! (I'm from Australia so the markups on clothing here is fairly large) I go in there a fair bit and never noticed the brand. Serendipitous... Very nice fabric, a loro piana wool/silk/linen.
Eliod, these are Tricker's?
Rainy day in Aix en Provence:
Awesome! Now let's see pics!
I hadn't heard of them either. But on the second day in Florence we did a bit of browsing in stores and I came across this SC that fit me very good right off the rack, so I went with it. I got it at a very good price as well (ca €300), considering fabric, construction et c.
Mais oui, well spotted! Kensington to be precise.
BTW, I'm afraid the checks of your tie and shirt are a bit too close in scale.
Tanks for the feedback Eliod. I took the risk and I thought it matches because of the difference of colour and checks (the shirt's ones are vertical and horizontal as the tie's ones are diagonally).
Edit: Sorry, missed @in stitches post at the top.
Perhaps a less extreme cutaway collar would also help the tie not look as narrow?
Dear Upper Crust,
Such costumes should guarantee that the wearer gets much respect by other persons whereever he goes, except in train stations, or listening to street musicians, or anywhere pickpockets or worse frequent. Special surprise is the pink shirt, which sporns me to change my order of two cream and one pink to two pink and one cream at a current shirt sale featuring the magic trinity reduced. Your moon and sun trouser suspenders in beautiful colors serve much better thsn any Free Mason Mormon underwear to remind you everything in and around you is destiny in the hands of angels, except your own spiritual activity shaping your future.
