    Thank you for your kind words. The fabric is from Caccioppoli but I don't know who the original maker is.

    belated x-post from the challenge. unexpected camera failure resulted in having to use the webcam in my dingy office again, after all. Avon House homespun tweed 3-piece, BB Black Fleece shirt, Engineered Garments bow tie, vintage PS + unseen burgundy Florsheim Imperial longwings.

    Thumbed for the FU factor. Not sure about the bow tie though - its "wings" extend well over the top edges of the waistcoat, which doesn't seem right to my eye.

    Me neither. I like it when I'm wearing it, less so when I see it static in pictures.

    Gerry, the fabric of that suit is to die for! But, if you don't mind my saying so, the jacket looks a bit too tight, don't you think?

    @EliodA , I never mind you saying anything - your intent is always good [​IMG]

    To be frank, I need to drop some weight to get back to where I was but it's partly because I seem to have this bad habit of sticking out my chest when camera timer is about to go off.

    This is another view of the jacket where I don't think it appears tight:

    Still, I'll pass judgement once both the jacket and my body settle down [​IMG]
