1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    Gentlemen, how did you learn to match colors, patterns, and textures? I've never in my life seen a collection of well dressed people like this. I can't believe at one time I thought a polo was well dressed, or the rule to never mix more than 2 patterns was written in stone. You men put "attractive" Brad Pitt and Tom Cruse to shame.

    I hope to learn quickly, so every purchase is a good one.

    I follwed this forum daily for five years....not saying I'm great at it and I usually don't do many patterns, but stick around and you'll learn a thing or two.

    Thanks.

    Maybe.

    Maybe not. I agree that the shoes and shirt are casual for the jacket and pants.

    It may be a suit jacket. I have no way of knowing. Suit Supply makes sport coats and suits in this peak lapel 3/2 roll configuration. It has a nice texture to it though that will help it work as a sport coat IMO. It is not a flat worsted fabric, but it is grey so I understand the orphan vibe. Orphans need love too.

    I wanted a sports coat like yours and the best I could thrift was a Land's End. 48% wool, 52% silk. I am surprised there is silk, it looks like wool and has more texture than the picture shows. I'm wondering if this is a keep or return? No experience with Lands End. It fits me very good. I've made worse purchases when I joined SF and didn't know better, including a fused brown Hugo Boss with no personality I will donate. [​IMG]

    This thread isn't the best place for such questions, but I think it's a keeper.

    @An Acute Style, how many sports coats, blazers, & country jackets do you own? I'm reading this thread from newest to oldest post and I love sports coat after sports coat, and decide to thrift it when it's available. If I thrifted every color pattern I like, I'd need to convert a large bedroom into a closet to have space.

    I love a warm earthy red windowpane, then love emerald aqua windowpane, then love powder blue windowpane, it doesn't stop.

    Seriously, Nordstrom would have record sales if they hired this crew as models. I haven't felt this urge to buy everything I see since I was 5 years old at toys-r-us.

    Edit: Sorry, just saw the above. I'll post questions in the noob thread. I didn't mean to interrupt the flow in this thread.

    Put this in spoiler tags to minimize

    I think it works as a sportcoat. I was just making mention.

    That´s a very nice fit, but not for that activity. You need a DB jacket something like this:
