    I do this too. Linen sleeves rumple up and end up looking shorter. Cotton less so, but still more than tweed or flannel IMHO (then you have to account for differences between different fabric weights).

    Edit. AAS, keep the hat as is. Looks great on you, but I'd love to see it in one of your more subdued fits.

    Yes, that makes sense to me. But then you'd hem sleeves and trousers a bit longer, while @Pliny says he's making them shorter. [​IMG]

    True, shorter sleeves definitely feel cooler.

    Been busy lately but I lurk almost everyday. Fantastic fits lately.

    Today I'm in a suit. Monochrome.

    @Betelgeuse Is that a brown tie or a burnt olive tie? Either way, a superb tie choice here.


    @Anden agreed, the fits have been at an all-time high for the first time in probably 7 years. Your tie seems too dark and similar to the tone of the suit here. It looks a bit undertaker-ish or, with that kind of collar spread, manservant-ish. Also, don't mean to pile on, but I think glasses with less vertical profile would fit the size of your facial features better.

    Definitely works for you! Now to get one in black watch. :slayer: (half kidding, navy or dark brown would also look great, I think)
    I like the lower button point and longer length. Shoulders not necessarily though it by no means looks bad.
    I was just about to buy that washing machine/cellphone/life insurance from you, but then I saw that collar spread. Sorry sir, no can do.

    Looking great, Victor. Love the combination of mid grey trousers and dark brown SC. I use it quite often myself.

    Is this just a jacket or part of a suit? Would love to see this as part of a suit. Also, tie knot is a little large, no?

    Well the idea was to have similar tones but different textures. I take your point on the collar. Thank you.

    I take both parts of your comment as negative. Noted the collar but please elaborate on why this is so bad in other parts.

    I prefer other collars to this so it doesn't get much airtime. I was interested in comments on the rest.

    Nonono, not at all. The problem with written language and the absence of intonation etc. I like the outfit a lot, I just wanted to comment on how muted and conservative the color palette is (a "trustworthy" outfit, hence the life insurance), but the collar makes it not conservative at all. The collar is a little extreme for my taste, as soon as a collar does the "seagull wings" I'm out, but it is by no means bad.

    Is the tie printed or woven? In the sitting shot it looks like one of the those large scale madders but in the close up it looks like a woven jacquard. Whatever the case, looking good!

    Thank you, and for the record, it's a woven jacquard - the close up tells the truth.
