I quite like that color. Would it be called "tobacco"? And is the material linen? The cut looks like Spier and McKay to me, except that the breast pocket is better placed (S&M tend to place the pocket too high to allow one to display a pocket square to advantage). That pocket does look a bit overpacked, though.
Thank you. Cigar linen from S&M, yes. The breast pocket is really small. My tiny linen square is still too much for it, I agree. But, the color of the suit is quite striking and needs to be broken up.

Nice look. Tell me about this suit. It has an interesting gorge in both height and shape.
Thanks. This is the one bespoke suit that I own, although I’m soon to pick up my second, and I’ve been posting about that in the on ongoing bespoke projects thread. The thing that I had mostly specified when ordering the suit was that I liked a notch lapel that is slightly more horizontal—or closer to something like a fish mouth lapel. Hence the gorge as it is. I probably would’ve gone even more fishmouthy, but the guy who made this suit, he knows what he’s doing, and I trust him and I’ve been very pleased with the result.

It is indeed fishmouthy. Very french. The suit fits you well.

Suits you.
I just feel that a three button coat would work better for you.
Maybe because of your hairstyle, same as mine.
I’ve considered a double breasted coat, for this reason. A hard three lives up to its name for me. Not my thing.
Those shoes

Dressed for a cool autumn day (which turned out not to be cool enough to require the sweater). New tie, in ancient madder from Shibumi.

Choice of socks perhaps not ideal, as they don't pick up any prominent colors from the upper half of my outfit, but I think they look okay with the shoes and trousers.
