    Thanks. Actually I was thinking the same thing about that waistcoat looking at it in the mirror, but in actual fact it's already tight. The material is very stiff and it just sits forward a bit more than it should because of my little pot belly. Yes, I have one. That's the hand I was dealt by, you know, him. Up there. With the beard.

    The vest on my tweed shooting suit started out pretty stiff and remained so through a few wearings until it was thoroughly soaked in a downpour and worn until dried. Presto-chango, the horizontal waves/puckering appeared. Maybe you can recreate the process in your laboratory. ;)


    This is the vest front look you're going after:

    Hi!

    New guy here, though I have been lurking for the longest of times with an occasional post some years back, I figured it's about time to really plunge in and start being active!

    Picture quality is a bit subpar, but my iPhone camera has seen better times, and taking a proper picture within a small dorm room is harder than I expected. I hope it still suffices nonetheless! I am primarily looking to improve, so any feedback is always more than welcome!


    SC: SuitSupply (100% cotton, unlined, washington fit)
    Shirt: SuitSupply
    PS: Tom Ford
    Pants: H&M (color is bordeaux)
    Shoes (not in picture): Ermenegildo Zegna

    Huge honour for me, the Club has invited me to be their Captain for 2015! I am deeply humbled, honoured and incredibly excited at the prospect. The Duchess and the Flower Garden are as proud as I am.

    Complete surprise, in that only the past Captains decide.

    I was invited to the Club yesterday -

    Very nice @Cleav, that looks great. You use brown very, very well. And congrats on your appointment! (if that is the correct word!)

    Thanks Nuke, that's very kind of you. On both counts.

    I particularly liked your jacket ^^ who made it?

    That is Formosa x NMWA, it is Drapers Hopsack. Easily my favorite jacket (since I got it back from the tailors yesterday). The fabric is really quite something, I can see why there are so many hopsack fans out there.

    I had a patterned vest on, but traded for this solid one before I left. The shirt is red/navy tattersall. I wish I had worn darker shoes. New to me overcoat. I wish it was a bit looser.
