Feel like a monday :
Had to dress up for a little video.
Jacket - Van Gils
Shirt - Coppley OCBD
PS - Hamilton Jockey Club Vintage Cotton
Trousers - Canali Cotton Mohair in Tan
Shoes - Walnut AE Sanfords
Belt - Tundra Leather Bridle Leather (from Hamilton) Matched to AEs
Don't want to clog up the thread, but Crusty and Mossrocks thought a different angle might show the fit better. I think the jacket would still benefit from a bit of suppression, but maybe it appears less boxy from this angle (which also shows the shirt cuffs in a more flattering arrangement):
Mossrocks, I'm still not in your league!
Mr. Chris, so consistently tasteful.
Summer fabrics, Fall colors.
Spoiler: MOAR; incl robo pose
Gave that DB blazer another try, with a shirt whose sleeves aren't so loose at the wrists, and trousers that are actually, you know, fit for human consumption. The body may be too short, but I think the slightly-too-low crotch of the other pants exaggerated that.
Brooks shirt, and the debut of an Arnys' tie with, I think, squash leaves on it. Shoes are dark brown suede AE pennys.
Sorry this is blurry. I know Roetzel says not to wear such dark trousers with a navy blazer, but he also says to use dry shampoo and smoke cigarettes, and I don't do either of those.
Edit: Thanks to @drlivingston for the tie!
@heldentenor with the above suggested adjustments made your fit and look will with that ensemble will be top notch. The turn ups (cuffs) on your trousers look smart over the monks, what are their measurements? They look like 2 inches.
Ercoles, Ercoles, Yellow Hook Neckties, Epaulet, Carmina
Very nice NYI, especially love the beard!
Thanks, BespokeKiwi. They are indeed 2 inch cuffs. Most of my trousers are 1.5-1.75, but I like the bigger cuff here and in future will probably request a full 2 inches.
Something needed to cover up that face!...
Dont sell yourself short, mang.
Looks better from this angle, well done. I've looked at those Epaulet jackets and coveted them greatly. Yours probably has a fabric more suited to the weather (mine is a lightweight flannel; I've had to wear it only during weather that's cool or when I know I'll be in cold indoor settings, lol, and even then I've had to sweat it out a certain amount). And your shirt cuffs have the inverse problem of mine—the sleeves on mine are slightly long! Thank you for the compliment; I'm greatly humbled.
2nd day of classes. Still keeping it simple. A custom suit maker contacted me last month about doing a review on my blog for a free suit. I went in today to pick out fabric and get measured up. It should take 3-4 weeks than a fitting for small tweaks. I'm very excited about getting my first suit. Looking forward to joining the suit wearing masses. I was going for a blazer/suit because I don't wear suits that often and wanted something casual. I got a dark navy super 120s, 3/2 roll, notch lapel, natural shoulders, triple patch pocket pocket, 1/4 lined, pick stitching at the edge, and brown horn buttons.
