    I think garza grossa grenadines have enough texture that they effectively function as patterns (unlike, say, shantung--or other forms of texture like weaves for suits/SCs/trousers). For me there's enough of a visible repeating pattern in a garza grossa that you couldn't pair it with a similar-size pattern in a shirt (like a gingham).

    My guesses:

    Tie and jacket color are neither close enough nor far enough apart. Shoes and pants are too close in color. Basically, it's blue on top, brown on bottom.

    My father left me almost the exact same overcoat as the above Camel coat in pic 1 and 3. Probably from the 60's from Beau Brummel Forest Hills, NY....Do you think it's possible to take a coat like that in maybe 4-5 inches in the chest/torso to fit me? He was sort of barrel chested and alas I am not...
    Thanks

    Large-weave grenadines are a texture, not a pattern. Sorry, heldentenor, but fiddlesticks to you.

    Here's me trying to look like I don't give a shit, in Martin Square on this beautiful Sydney afternoon.
