    DC, your suit is amazing! It's the PoW pattern I've been drooling over for ages! Info on that beauty please :)

    And you lot criticise me for my wardrobe of (mainly) solids !
    I agree with all of the above but would add a couple of navy suits, blue and white striped shirts (you probably meant those), grenadine instead of knit for more versatility and swap the light brown shoes for a slightly darker burnt chestnut with a little dark detailing on the toes. You need suede shoes in dark brown too. Everyone does.

    Somehow I don't think there's enough contrast here between the colour of the tie and shoes and that of the suit. Nice otherwise. I had a brief fling with (double) monks but now can't stand them, but I run hot and cold on lots of things.

    A rare entry, trouser drape messed up by the wind.

    Yes I know braces with odd trousers/belt loops is foul play in the eyes of some.

    Based on its colour, I don't expect this suit to get a lot of praise over here. But I wanted to post it anyway as I'm very happy with it! Swedish suit from the 30s in excellent condition, bought at auction for 20 SEK (~£1.7!!!). Likely made in the small village that I live in (<100 people), as there used to be a tailor just a few hundred metres from my house back in the day.

    Yes, I know that the jacket is short and the shoulders are very wide and padded. That was the fashion back in 1938. ;) I need to lengthen the trouser legs, though.

    The suit is a ebay thrift from Corneliani and the fabric is 92% wool and 8% cashmere.

    You may feel like you've developed an undeserved reputation as the thread's curmudgeon, always playing a tune no-one wants to hear, but IMO there's been a slight but positive shift towards more understated fits since you started posting regularly- for example, Gerry Nelson, deservedly, gets a lot of love for his quiet elegance.


    Question: so where is a grenadine more optimal than a silk knit? I love grenadines but there's no substitute for a silk knit when you really want to contrast texture.

    Gentlemen, I'd be interested to here your thoughts on the fit of this jacket. I think the shoulders are more extended than I'm use to so it looks on the large side to my eye, although it feels ok. I have quite a large head so I think it's in proportion. Will prob get the waist nipped a tiny bit. Thank You.

    Looks great IMO- shoulders are a fraction on the wide side, but I don't think they look too extended. The rule of thumb is that the sleeve should drop in a straight line from the shoulder edge: neither a deltoid bulge (too narrow) nor a cavity at the top of the sleeve (wide). Nipping the waist isn't necessary IMO
