    This morning was a very early start, as my husband is taking an early flight to the UK, necessitating him getting up at an ungodly hour of the morning, and waking me in the process. This fact, and the fact that it's Friday has meant that "complicated" attire is not on the schedule for today - something somewhat more casual was called for.

    Sports jacket - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt, corduroys - BB
    Bow tie - PRL
    PS - Drake's, via the Armoury
    Boots - Paul Stuart
    Overcoat - Joseph Abboud
    Scarf - Paul Stuart
    Cap - BB

    I'd intended to go even more casual, but a breakfast meeting at a private club meant a jacket was necessary this morning. Tie knot could've been much better.

    @Hal Freeman Agree, without glases, people tend to look more naked and vulnerable, sort of more intimate and unprotected.

    Brown and black combination is a faux-pas, right?

    Trousers somehow slipped down, hence the bouncing on the shoes.

    Crazy level of pattern matching in the jacket!!! 'Particularly around the breast pocket and upper-arm, must have drove your tailor quite insane.

    Not so much on the inside of the trouser leg, though. I'm not sure I'm OCD enough for that to bother me, but I did notice...

    Very nice, and probably the only time I've seen Jeffery-West shoes in this thread.

    Curious as to why you did patch pockets on a DB suit? The cloth looks pretty formal

    That's a good question. The cloth is a worsted wool from Hardy Minnis in a PoW pattern (though it's very subtle), so I agree that it is rather formal. As for patch pockets I chose them simply because I think they are more comfortable and easier to use for me. The decision was made when I was choosing the fabric and making design decision for the suit and I wasn't fully aware how it will look like in real life. I was wondering about changing them but at the time I approached my tailor with this idea it was too late to execute it. So I've just let it go and ended up with the patch pockets. I am aware it's a bit against the rules and it might clash a bit, but I'm OK with this. After all, I didn't want to order the most formal suit in my wardrobe and when I actually commission it, it will obviously appropriate type of pockets.
