Love the jacket St Crispy. Very nice fit.
Just wanted to mention that this is one of the better fitting jackets you have had on recently. Light gray on top is well paired with darker trousers. And contrary to what many folks here think, an appropriate navy tone would work on bottom too.
I think I get what sort of aesthetic you were shooting for with black knit and DM. Since those look liked mid grays, darker brown DM probably would have worked too.
Me too...I have one that is nearly identical.
It is nice indeed though to nit pick I would prefer either patch pockets or flapped ones. I'm not sure about jetted pockets on odd SCs. He Might have tucked those flaps in though.
I like the restraint being shown here. The jacket is the focal point, and the shirt, tie and square are there to support rather than compete with it. The tie is simple, but looks to have a little body and texture and is a great shade of blue. Details?
Summertime and off to work.
Thank you. The shirt is an oldie, had it made while I was living in Bologna, in a tiny shop nearby. Have long since forgotten the name of that shop....
(I think that's Bostonian accent)
Thanks! I will experiment with some other choices.
Appreciate the feedback, Elio. I was hoping the fact that they were double monks and not bals would sufficiently reduce the formality of the shoes. I really was going for "city casual", lightweight mid grays, white OCBD, black silk knit. I thought black monks would drop right into that same aesthetic pretty well. I think I underestimated the inherent formality that a black shoe has. It's really difficult to overcome.
Thanks for the feedback! It is one of my favorite jackets in terms of fit and fabric. Even though I missed here, I will keep swinging with it. I like the idea of trying it in a more casual context.
Nah, that's Queens (Brooklyn, LI?). "Shap" would be more the flavor.
We have an Andrew's Ties in Toronto. I'd been a little curious about their quality.
More like "shaahp", actually (I know the accent quite well - land of my ancestors and my upbringing, Bahstn).
