    I've never seen a jacket with that much, uh, texture. I can't decide if I like it or not, but it certainly eye-catching. What is it?

    That texture is off the charts. I like it.

    ^ Was this fabric previously employed as a conveyer of potatoes (possibly Adirondack Blues)? I kid, of course. Like Andy57, I can't quite decide if I'm yea or nay, but it definitely makes a statement.

    Thanks. Wool/silk blend from Suit Supply. Actually surprisingly light weight.

    Trust me, you love it. [​IMG] (Glad I cleared that up.)


    Thanks.

    You love it, too. [​IMG] (See above ...)

    Tie is Hober Oxford weave, by the way.

    Cheers,

    Thanks guys, for the positive comments, and your suggestions. I do think you guys are right about the amount of contrast. Will remember that, the next time I reach for that coat. It's a fun thread, am sure I can pick up lots of stuff from the guys here. Thanks for making me feel welcome.

    Hi Eric, thanks very much. Appreciate it.
    The tie is "Red cream racing stripes", and the pocket square is "Burnt orange mosaic".
    Both by @gshen and the team at Vanda.
    Am very proud, to be able to support local artisans.

    Welcome to the dark side. For my money I'd go one of two routes. If you can find one, vintage pieces are very nice. Might not be available outside the U.S. though. Varsity Town is a nice old American brand and they made some good looking madras jackets. Barring that, Brooks Brothers still makes them, as does J. Press.

    So you only like high-contrast Madras because George H. Bush wore it?
    That's the same straw man argument you're signing on to.

    Tie - BB
    PS - Ashear
    Cufflinks - DVVS, NYC

    I like it because I find it appealing. The reference to GB was tongue in cheek. I find this discussion increasingly unnecessary so this will be my final word on the issue.

    Looking good @ThunderMarch . Following your IG, I've always wondered what went with all those nice shoes [​IMG]

    Really digging that look Thunder
    Interesting point on the contrast... for my own edification, does the texture differences negate some of the lack of contrast in shade?
