    Herringbone trousers are great all fall/winter. "Perfect for Christmas" is just seller-speak for "buy these now."

    Most of the time when I ask people to do it sir, it usually comes out all blurred out and un-serviceable. I reckon it is a hit or miss most times.. I like the use of stripes in the outfit, but would you say the tie or shirt clashes a little bit?

    On a side note, what is the correct term of a 3 piece with odd trousers? A 2 piece suit? With the waistcoat and jacket matching? I've been looking around the internet to find some examples, but it appears to be that this type of outfit configuration is hard to come by.

    @Hal Freeman, another version of wearing the jacket and vest from a three piece suit with odd trousers, in this case standing next to what some Southern Californians will recognize as the idol in front of the local Temple Of Mammon.

    Very sharp Stan, but that vestigial top button looks mismatched with the position of the button hole. Is that camera angle, lapel roll or my eyes?

    [Since both button and hole are almost invisible in this configuration I question why they are there in the first place, but that’s just me!]
