1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    In order to resist to the polar wind here in Geneva I took inspiration in the military wardrobe with this very casual overcoat :

    Bright tie for a gloomy day. Suit is actually slate blue. Sleeve shot shows a better approximation of the actual color.

    Finally got the pants on this J. Press suit hemmed. Sadly no material for a cuff.

    When you're tired of the traditional blazers, you gotta go with some color. Now saturated jackets are not a modern, "pitti" invention. This ivy sack blazer (with triple patch pockets) is one is from the 1960's.

    Picked it up at a vintage warehouse in Hollywood that has some of the rarest stuff I've ever seen in great condition. This jacket was one of them!

    1960's Jacket, vintage OCBD (thrifted), 1940's tie (eBay), Polo RL Trousers (thrifted), AE loafers (eBay).

    I also wrote a blog post on non-navy, triple patch pocket jackets if you're interested!

    I'm wearing the Brooks Brothers brown herringbone tweed suit I bought in 1965, Brooks Brothers yellow OCBD shirt, and green pseudo-regimental emblem (wrong colors) tie, Jim Thompson pocket square, and Allen-Edmonds brogue suede Strands. Tibor is wearing a suit and hat he designed and a Ralph Lauren purple label shirt. Forgot to ask about his tie, pocket square, or shoes.

    Some might recall the gaggle of bizarre comments a while back when Tibor posted a picture sitting indoors eating pizza with a knife and fork and wearing his hat.

    This picture, Tibor sitting outdoors eating pizza with his hand and wearing his hat restores balance to the Universe and everyone can now live happily ever after.

    A velvet dinner jacket with a tie ?




    Today : My favourite bespoke coat , ideal for the polar cold wave of this week. It's a ceremony coat of the French Gendarmerie Nationale (french military police). Tailored by an old master tailor (Maître Tailleur in French) , mister J.M. Barronnier as you can see on the tag. See the details : the Grenade on all the buttons of the coat including the half-belt at the back and on the rank markings of the collar, symbol of the Grenadiers Regiment. Ideal to complete the look as I wear a navy gold buttons blazer.

    Yes, red velvet that matched my wife's dress. Let me guess, there is some "style" rule out there that says you can not wear a velvet dinner jacket with a tie?

    Welcome to Styleforum, where strongly held opinions are quite common.

    In the context of the other accessories with which you wore the velvet jacket (grey flannel trousers and a plain white shirt), a four-in-hand tie isn't that out of place. Had you been wearing a tuxedo shirt and trousers, I would have found the four-in-hand tie more out of place, but that is my personal preference. Velvet jackets get dressed up and down a good deal - you took a somewhat more casual approach - nothing wrong with that. Chacun a son gout.

    It's not a "strongly held opinion", I was just surprised.:) (Btw it's "Chacun ses goûts".)
