    I think the conclusion is that the jacket generally doesn't suit me! I'm going to be having a bit of a clear-out soon and I'm starting to think that I may pass this one on and make a gun-club check coat one of my bespoke priorities...

    ...but my wife took the time and effort to fold them up in the traditional Korean PS style and I had to honour her...

    Just kidding. No, it's something that I think is a bit more interesting than a TV fold and I am just having fun with them by letting her do whatever she wants.

    You'll grow out of this phase (hopefully). To me it looks like an origami crane stuffed into your pocket.

    Well it is a way his wife can participate in his interest in clothes, good for a young married couple.

    I say go with it within limits, though I agree on the fold, noodles you are a good sport. The fit and other choices look good.

    Exactly. Why not engage the wife by letting her fold some PS? We are just trying to have fun here. I think had I tucked it in a bit more then it would not have looked so in-your-face.

    Lots of really good fits so far today, too many to specify.

    MF - as far as I can recall, I think that is your best use of that suit to date.

    Thank you Stitchy! I just stopped trying silly things and treated it like any other suit.

    [sigh] One laments the day when gentlemen knew the etiquette of duelling.

    Bespokekiwi should not bring a pistol. That is a job for the seconds. And two pistols would be required. But, as you are proposing the contest, choice of weapons is actually up to the respondent.*


    * I made that last bit up. But it sounds right.

    I'm not suggesting that no one should wear such a jacket with other colors, just that I think it only really sings with a navy tie. For me, the navy anchors the boldness in a way that other colors haven't. I agree that various pants colors work just fine, and I've worn this jacket with the sand color like yesterday, light gray, and medium brown.
