    It was not... A large check iirc. Well, it was only an illustration, no guarantees that there's ever been anybody to actually wear it ..

    Is that the same as a 'stroller'? I believe you once posted a beautiful example.[/quote]



    Yes, Stroller in the US - Black jacket I the UK - Stresemann in Germany - and thank you :bigstar:[/quote]

    THAT''s the name. Man that was bothering me.

    Here's another photograph of Anthony Eden and Sir Samuel Hoare that shows the suits more clearly. I suspect it to have been taken a few seconds before the one you posted - shirts, suits, tie, hats and handkerchiefs look the same but where is Eden's cane? Can it be held in his hand and, pointing forward as he swings his arm, obscured by his hat?

    Anyway, peak lapels on an SB make you practically party to appeasing Mussolini, this much we can say. [​IMG]

    Rubinacci Cotton Suit and Claghorns old tie [​IMG]

    The gentleman who commissioned the suit apparently never picked it up, and I got it for about $ 400
    no alterations are made, but think the fit is pretty good

    Calypso, not feeling the socks, but everything else is spot-fucking-on.

    You must be well chuffed about the suit kop.

    Edit: shirt sleeves too short? If so - shame, because the collar is really good.

    thanks [​IMG] it's by far my favorite suit at the moment...
    The only reason I wear these socks are AAS Friday challenge [​IMG]

    Sleeves are perhaps a touch too short, but still ok I think.
    Don´t know if I dare to leave it to my tailor for alterations

    Maybe just avoid that shirt with that suit in future. The sleeve length on the suit seems fine.

    I have similar problems with some suit/shirt combos.

    I wonder what would happen if someone posted a picture of hitler wearing a SB suit with notch lapels. Would you burn your entire suit wardrobe and only wear DB's from then on?

    I generally don't pay much attention to tradition, but I'm still probably influenced by them on an unconscious level. I've never read anywhere that peak lapels on an SB were more formal, but they've always felt that way. Perhaps because we tend to see them on tuxedos more than anywhere else. It also might be that peak lapels are just more dramatic. Anyway, I've been getting a lot of wear out of a recent acquisition, around once a week (generally, I try to get my jackets worn 2-3 times a month, though any current favorites are likely to get 3-4 times a month). Peak lapel, single breasted. And I think it works better with slightly more....severe...looks than it does with my more normal casual fare. [​IMG] [​IMG] SF Family: Panta (tie) Yount (pants)

    It's a little hard to see from the pictures as the jacket is so dark, but that does look like a very nice jacket. Who made it?

    This is really nice; I have a brown hopsack suit in the works which will look a lot like this one. Now I'm even more excited.
