    Don, I imagine that's a SC but if it were a suit, it would be so fucking baller.

    Love the trouser width.

    DC, spectacular SC. And unlike others here, I dont think the tapered pants look is suitable for you. You are THE DON after all.

    Top pic is very nice and I use that pairing as well. Just sometimes I prefer the charcoal. They are both okay I think. Edit: I also agree about cream. Light grey jacket and bone pants in summer is great.

    I couldn't agree more. I'm possibly older than him but to me, no matter how expensive the clothes, he always looks like a dowdy, frumpy old man.

    As an aside to charcoal pants, I have them in dark grey, navy and bone cavalry twill, Loro Piana or Ariston I think. For casual wear, going to the shops etc. It's winter in Australia and with a cashmere sweater they are so much better than the dreaded jeans, which I have found too hot in summer, too cold in winter and extremely uncomfortable, especially when driving (ymmv!).
    After a while cavalry twills feel like track pants. Cords are good too while heavy flannels add a touch of class to casual wear. Bit off track, sorry.

    Thank you very much for your concern - As you can see, I'm alive and kicking - here demonstrating the versatility of THE ELECTRIC BLUE DB Dormeuil Tonik 30 % mohair suit, by Steven Hitchcock, worn with shirts by NSM and Sean O'Flynn, tie by Hermes, Rubinacci PS, Double Monks by J. Lobb, blue suede tassels by Crocket & Jones.

    From the proper suit to jacket white cotton trouser combi, to the dreaded, sockless, no tie, and jeans combo :hide:

    That's a stunningly beautiful suit, @Butler , and this is an occasion where a yellow tie is a perfect choice. Love the colour and patina of those double monks too. The jacket also works really well with the white trousers but, and I say this as someone who wears denim with odd jackets sometimes, even in such a faded form, the indigo-based blue of the denim doesn't work with the electric blue (or the blue suede - just too many different types of blue going on), and the rougher cut of the jeans just does not work with that ultra smooth cloth of the jacket. It's just trying (unecessarily) hard IMHO.

    Great to see you here again, BTW.

    Agree with FlyingMonkey. Butler, that is an epic set of fits (and what's with the late 20s physique on the late 60s guy? WTF?). If there's anyone that could pull off a "look" comprising that suit jacket and those jeans, it would certainly be you.

    But alas, I fear that particular combo is unpullable-off.


    p.s. I far prefer your hair "au naturel" as in the above shots. I myself have decided, after some lame experiments with certain supermarket products a few years back, to learn to love my grey eminence.
    p.p.s. I am not giving up my Botox though.

    Thanks gents - while I do not think there is a discrepancy with texture in the jeans combo, as the mohair is pretty rough too (one might see that in the shoo close up) - I agree that that combo came out wrong. Somehow the colour/fading of the jeans looks completely different IRL - anyhow this was just an experiment we did to show the versatility in "The Journal of Style".

    The "grey eminence" :) alas, came quite natural, but I did change the cut a bit following orders by wife! - The "physique" bit is the result of daily work outs (and it's 65 by the way) :bigstar:

    My apologies, I thought you had said you were older. Whatever - you must have the Peter Pan gene.
