    i like the idea/combination, but the jacket looks a touch tight and short to my eye.

    That's OK. I appreciate the feedback. It's Tom Ford and I've been struggling for the couple of months since I got it (from Spoo) to work it into something. I figured something solid would be a good idea, but I think you're right, the suit is too formal. Suggestions welcome.

    The PS does have hints of the olive in there, FWIW.

    Haha, thank you! It's hard work and dessert control.

    Have a safe journey, your stuff as well as yourselves. I think this jacket calls for less formal shirt, tie and trousers. The fit you did a while ago with a brown knit tie worked better, IMO (the controversy over the PS not withstanding)

    I am sorry, but "dessert control" is an oxymoron :embar:

    X-post from the summer tie challenge. Attended a wedding on Saturday which meant a rare (for me) chance to wear a suit:

    I went to Boston/Salem this weekend. I got this jacket from Bobby from Boston while I was there. I'm not sure about the pocket square. I tried a solid white, but wasn't feeling it. I kept everything else simple given given the boldness of the jacket.

    Maybe no pocket square? Also, given the boldness of the jacket, why not go for a bold and loud pocket square as well? You aren't going to tame the jacket by using a white tv-fold. Go all out!

    Reckon I'd give you a run for your money in the old age stakes. One day I'll be as brave as you and post a head shot...maybe I should anyway. Seriously, you have no problem with this clearly and with someone as good looking as Sander it would be mandatory, I'd think. So you think I should? Forget past skirmishes, it is a genuine question.

    Sander, this is just superb. I love the strength of that collar. Your easy poses and ready smile all add to an excellent look.
