I’m not a huge fan of tweed and don’t need it much in FL but that’s a great example of how to do it, even while sneakily thumbing your nose at the daft “no navy strides” SF ‘rule’. If I was in colder weather more often I’d definitely be trying something like this, plus it’s a welcome change from the standard grey (herringbone/Donegal/marle) tweeds we usually see. I’d problies go for a blue rather than white shirt, maybe oxford or chambray as being a pasty blondie I find white shirts can wash me out. Well done!
@Thin White Duke Thank you Rod; I appreciate your comments.

I came to Style Forum to learn the rules and to “find my style” but I realize that I like almost everything, so the only real rule I follow is “wear what you have,” or, as Mrs. 44 would say, “wear what you have clean.”

I like this a lot, but whats going on with the right chest? Does it just need a press or is there a sort of pucker above the dart?
Thanks for pointing that out. I think (and hope) I’ve found the culprit; the button loop over the breast pocket.

This fabric is mighty heavy; when I first picked it up I thought there were things in the pockets. The loop or keeper is made of the same stuff and it

effects the shape of the jacket. See the pics.

My tailor has reopened so I’ll get his advice and have a little surgery done on it if required.

Thats interesting. Certainly could be the culprit. I hate interior buttons since they make things a pain to press and I tend to have a lot of pressing to do. I like that Corozo though, looks great.

The weather in NYC has turned sunny but cool for June - a pleasure to be out in. I had occasion to walk through the Union Square area, and points due south this morning, and saw widespread, but sporadic, incidents of vandalism in the wake of this weekend's protests. These incidents do nothing to further the cause of justice - blind anger rarely does. But onwards to more pleasant topics . . .

Today's attire, by accident, seems to be an advertisement for UK brands - when laying things out last night, everything I grabbed seemed to be a British brand. Even today's braces, bought in New York, are marked "Made in England".

Suit - Ede & Ravenscroft
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Harvie & Hudson
Cufflinks - Benson & Clegg
Braces - Paul Stuart
Pocket square - New & Lingwood
Shoes - Gaziano & Girling private label for Paul Stuart
