    Hotter. But doable if it's not over 85 degrees, the sun is already down, and you don't have to move outside of air conditioning for anymore than 10 meters at a time.

    You'd never ever wear flannel in LA. It's difficult enough in Italy.

    I run too warm for flannel which sucks because I love the look and feel of flannel so much.

    Today. Hair is weird. Light is weird. Suit was made for my father and is at least 45 years old. It's my "Italian industrialist" suit.

    What cloth of the coat is that.
    It looks really nice.

    Very nice! Now, technically, this is quite simple; but you will never see a newbie wear a combination like this.



    Suit and tie are very nice, but not so good together, I think.



    Finding nice cloths for summer is much harder, I agree; flannel, tweed, etc. offer interesting textures whereas in summer you have... well, fresco. And much more "out there" fabrics like seersucker and solaro.

    This is truly stupendously good imo
    Nice silhouette, great tie choice and PS, the box check shirt is a nice touch, those shoes have a great toe shape , and the pic itself is [​IMG].

    LOve it. The color of the trews is a bit "school grey" , and could be a bit lighter imo but that's a personal thing I think.

    Defensive dressing for a Monday. The weather is rainy, hence a suit on its last wearing before visiting the dry cleaner, and "beater" shoes. It is also a day in which I have to spend six hours in a room with other managers listening to some new edict from above, and for which I might actually want to look professional. Hence, the results below.

    Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt - BB
    Tie - Drake's
    Cufflinks - Niletti Creations, NYC
    Braces - Lewin
    Shoes - To Boot Adam Derrick

    I agree with every one of SBs points here.

    SVB, being so long and thin your are certainly a difficult task for a tailor and my scant frame of reference on such things won't be much help, but the picture posted more recently of you in the light blue checkered sport coat presents IMO a much more flattering silhouette than the cream suit. (Leaving aside the stacked lower pants legs).

    Must resist the urge to make a fruit joke about the purple tie.

    Attended an insanely opulent wedding this weekend. My son was a page boy and his bespoke silk outfit was made in England, barring the monogrammed velvet slippers, which were made in Italy. Fortunately it was paid for by the bride's parents.

    I've spoiler the lifestyle photos for those interested.
