I am loving the roll on the vest lapels.
Not feeling this one, Betel. Individual elements are all of high quality, but there's little or no cohesion.
Nice, but belongs in the "MC Casual" thread. (Yes I know, that thread doesn't get a lot of traffic.)
All good to know. Very much looking forward to the new shorter ones as the product is undoubtedly very classy.
TGIF heading into 12 days of glorious separation from the workaday world!
Vintage 60's BB jacket
Vingtage RL Polo Blue Label tie, further abetting my paisley fetish
PS gift from a former fiancee who claimed she got it during a nannying gig with a scion of the Rockefellers, who knows?
LL Bean trousers, not that dumpy looking, just the angle

I mean putting the above picture of you on a pocket square. Luxire can (I imagine other companies can too) print any photo on a pocket square.
I think having a custom made pocket square is a pretty cool idea. I just haven't figured out what I would want to have on it yet. I thought maybe a picture of me, but there is something a bit Freudian about having yourself in your own pocket. In general, I just think it's a really great photo of you.
Photoshoot today for the brand of saxophone I endorse. Went with this:

Fred G. Unn, are you a jazz or a classical saxophonist?
Pretty sure that's an alto sax, but I can't see a brand name.
Jazz primarily.That's an alto, but my avatar is my soprano. I'm not sure they'd be cool with me mentioning it here or not, but it's a Japanese brand. They are re-doing their artist site and doing a new poster so they had me do a shoot. First time making the main artist poster so I'm sorta happy about that anyway.
If you're a saxophonist, you'll notice that's a classical mouthpiece though. I don't really play it but I endorse that brand of mouthpieces, ligatures, and reeds so I put it on for photos. Shhh, don't tell ...
POLL IS UP!
I like the jackets you probably could take it in a fraction at the waist. Even though your pattern is the same I find different cloth behaves differently, especially you mentioned the jacket is unlined. I'll pair it with a light blue shirt and a texture wool tie it will make a world of difference.
The bespoke nature of your weekend outfit is sure to stymie the successful infiltration of the subversive element. Remember, they're not as dumb as they look.
You're right. I did a quick change and didn't have time to present it properly. I would have gone with different shirt, tie etc but was in a rush.
What I will do soon is re shoot it with a comparison of a structured jacket.
I'm not sure people get this concept so I will present a pic of the inside which shows this jackets is made of nothing but the fabric alone, except for light lining in the sleeves and a little around the shoulders. Not much more has been done to make it than cut a length of material into shapes and sew them all together.
Incredibly comfortable though.
I understand that many here are used to seeing fully structured pieces, mostly off the peg which have shoulder padding, canvassing, full lining, the works - which I get - and this is a total departure from that.
Separate names with a comma.
