    @Adolesco great outfit. I agree with Murl, I wouldn't have thought to pair that with jeans but it looks excellent.

    Today's outfit:

    I think it's time to put your collar stays in storage. :nodding:

    Too much spread for a casual tweed?

    Hmm, interesting question. Given the causal fabric I'm not sure it would make much difference if it was a little more spread, and the points would likely sit under the jacket a bit better. Does that collar flatten out too much without the stays? I' would imagine lighter interfacing might have that problem.

    To me personally if it's anything short of a cutaway the formality is more about the fabric/pattern than the angle of the spread, but I'm sure there's a rule in there somewhere that I'm breaking. Comes down more to how many shirts you have and how picky you can be I suppose. I just like the way a softer collar looks as it rolls over the tie and under the jacket rather than holding its shape with stays. YMMV.

    The suit is a rare beast in the wild today, with a true 3-button jacket. I got it as MTM many years ago and it’s one of my oldest suits, made by Chester Barrie in a super 150s fabric. I have thought about having it slightly altered and re-pressed to a 3-roll-2, but at the same time I think it might lose something. Besides, true 3-buttons may come back again!
    What are the views in the forum, keep as it is or alter?

    Btw, if anyone wonders the pictures were taken by the fascinating “Origami” building in Geneva, designed for Japanese Tobacco.

    The shirting is pretty flimsy as it's a thin warm weather cotton from Brooks Brothers. I've honestly never thought to wear it without collar stays but now that you mention it that makes sense. I will try that with more casual fits thank you. Still learning as is evident.

    I have trouble with true three-buttons. Even at 6'1 I prefer a 3x2 roll or a two-button. I think suits look better with lower buttoning points that expose more tie and shirt. That said, true three-buttons are great with vests, especially worn unbuttoned over a vest with a lapel.

    Beautiful suit. I love the way it fits, but I really don't like the pattern.

    Is it a suit? I think it's an odd jacket, in which case the fact that it's coming off like a suit is a problem. Needs more contrast between top and bottom. But you're right, jacket fit looks great.
