Crosspost from MTM thread:


Theres been lots of words recently, and too few pictures. This is my navy jacket and this is the happiest I've been with any of the incumbents of that position. The cloth is a great Scabal Lambswool/ Cashmere blend that has a lot of body as well as some visual texture. The shirt has the collar that I have transitioned to and will be using for my future orders. The trousers are an older pair of VBC flannel from a previous maker that are due to be replaced, but the cloth is nice.

Decided to try something a little different today. Did it work? Hard to say. I typically wear a solid shirt with this jacket but thought I'd give this a go.

The shirt pattern and jacket pattern are too similar in size. A wider stripe in the shirt would look good.
I strongly disagree with this suggestion. I like it as-is, but if I were to suggest an improvement it would be to use a lower-contrast stripe for the shirt.

Sport coat and trousers work well together.
Mostly agree with @FlowableFill, although I would try the shirt/sport coat combo with a solid tie and see if that brings it together. Agree with SB, but would definitely recommend a solid tie if you are keeping the shirt in the outfit.

Regardless, either the shirt or tie need to be solid.

I'm gonna be off the net for while. In case I never come back, I want to say thanks to everyone for the thumbs and advice(even the ridiculously stupid advice). Later.

Agree with Sugarbutch. Neither the shirt nor the tie needs to be solid. Check out Alan Flusser's style tips. It's fine that the jacket and shirt patterns are of similar scale, so long as the tie stripes are a different scale than the shirt's, which these are. Yes, it's tricky to mix patterns well, but it's been done masterfully here.

The shirt is unusual for me in two ways: one, it is red (red-and-white twill, not pink), which is a color that I rarely adopt as the main color of a shirt; and two, it has a wide-spread collar, or whatever one calls that design. I found that the latter feature raises some difficulty for choosing a tie to wear with it, as only a full-windsor knot will fill the space to the collar (and even then not completely), and that rules out using a tie of thick material.

The collar gap does not appear when my arms are down.
