    I have a great white jeans from borrelli to go with it too and a ice blue Maffeis shirt. More to come from me!

    I think I'm in agreement with you on that jacket. I'm also on the fence. I love the fabric, but lovely fabric is not the sole qualification for a lovely jacket.

    It's the loudest jacket I'll ever own.

    I recently went back to B&T to drop of a length of solid brown, wool silk linen dormieul. They had a jacket length of this breathtaking H&S gun club they were trying to clear at a discount. It was divine, and I was tempted to put the solid brown on hold. But I remembered my loud FU jacket, and that I only need one of those, and that I already have one of those, and so I passed.

    Cheers all, I appreciate your input. [​IMG] More or less equal spread between the three: 4 votes for #1, 3 votes for #2, 2 votes for #3. The dark Choc at the bottom is already happening, and if Igo ahead with one of the others I'll post a comparison pic and ask for your input on the flipside.


    Kulata, interesting u don't like windowpanes in blues generally. I can understand your aversion to that particular sky blue, but blues in general of course tend complement the common blue shirt.

    @Pliny - 2 or 3 for me.

    agree.


    agree. or a navy solid.


    of course this all explodes the one day i week i am gone.

    i think really everyone has said about all that can be said. but ill chime in real quick.

    first of all, sorry for giving your fits less credit than they deserved, but i think edmorel righted that ship. that being said, the reason i took issue with your critique of loud/multi patterned fits, was solely because you chose to unleash it on what i thought was an excellent execution of a multi patterned fit. all i was saying was that instead of critiquing a "loud" fit that is good just for being loud, critique a loud fit when its a bad loud fit for being bad, or for being suboptimal. like you did in your critiques above, that i fully agree with.

    as far as dressing more sedately, i am a big fan of simple, somber, elegant, crisp fits. i am fan of pretty much everything as long as its good, and well executed. be it a LK extravaganza, or a pB block of solids.

    just for you, here is a fit that i did a while back that i really loved that might be more to your liking:

    Everything was so elegant in the 50s and 60s.

    And I could post 1000 pics proving my point. So what. I think I said there was good and bad, like in every era.

    You are not allowed to praise any era ever.

    Im still not sure what you mean, but I am certainly not about to ban you for having an opinion.


    My middle school era was the ish. Fact.
