You had me with this photo. That watch again...
^Of course, the rest of your ensemble is equally excellent, but that's a given, I think

Most kind mon amis
Thanks for all the thumbs the past few days. I think the gorge height on this jacket and yesterday's jacket are very moderate style wise. Not too low like the 80s and not too high like the current trend.
I had a hard time picking out a tie for this outfit so I went with a navy blue one. I think it may be too dark up top though. The shoes are newish to me. It's my second time wearing them. I had them shined today.
I would favor the overall proportions and go with a shorter jacket. At least give it a try anyway. FWIW, your arms don't look short in the picture
Sheepy: Looking great and happy.
AAS: Your misgivings about the navy up top are justified. It's like a black navy hole up there.
I agree. Do you have any recommendations? I have a corduroy tie that's the same color as my pants. I almost wore it, but I thought it was too matchy. I also had a light brown glen plaid tie on, but thought it was too much pattern with the jacket.
Bottle green or burgundy. Maybe plum.
I thought about a green tie after I left. I think that would work too. I think burgundy or plum would still be too dark even though they would add some variety in terms of color. Thanks.
Jacket was made for another StyFo member who felt it never fit quite right. He generously passed it on to me. Very nicely made, and fits me almost perfectly. Even the sleeve length. I'll let him decide whether to take credit for his generosity, but I am grateful for it.
That's an awesome jacket. I'd love to see a full body. Any plans for a 3/2 roll?
That is a beautiful jacket Sug..and I love the interplay of the colors between the jacket, tie and p.s..awesomeness!!
