    Cleav, I've been trying to figure out what's bugging me in your combo, and I've decided that the shirt is too saturated for that tie. A paler blue would work much better IMO.

    Yes AAS.. the fit would have worked without the vest. The best is a no go IMO

    @sugarbutch @chocsosa Thanks for the feedback. I think it's actually the jacket and not the vest. I think a brown jacket would have been much better. The last time I wore the vest I paired it with a light brown corduroy jacket. I think my brown herringbone tweed jacket would have been better today. Alas, the black watch has failed me. I'll try again next week sans black watch.

    Has anyone dared to have pants made with no pockets? That would be an interesting look and something to experiment. I'm trying it myself when I go to my first appointment with my tailor this afternoon.

    I've seen sweatpants with pockets before.. by the way, why are you up at 2:23 am?

    I was reading a thread by @mafoofan about it (although he asked about no rear pockets).

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/47698/no-rear-pockets-on-bespoke-pants-thoughts


    I mean, I'm getting them made, no one is going to see my arse; and I don't even use them. So, I don't see the point in having them.

    yes, only suits tho. I've experimented with the 4 combos and I like one pocket right side best. No pockets is just a little bit too feminine IMO - not that anyone other than work colleagues is likely to notice - and 2 pockets feels like more of an odd trew thing.

    edit: I''m assuming u mean no back pockets. No pockets at all would be off.
