    ^ I gave Don the extra pocket hanky as I didn't need one for this outfit.

    Clags, much more somber than usual from you, I like it.

    Kg that is awesome.

    Thanks. I'm wanting to integrate more white shirts into what I wear. I also think two good FC's could be derived from that fit:

    1) A single pattern challenge
    2) A white shirt, odd jacket challenge

    P.o.P., those pants should be gray, not brown. Had they been gray....man that would have been a great original look.

    I want a no pattern/no suit challenge.

    You sure they are brown?

    I respectfully disagree in this case Clags. I originally thought the same thing about this jacket but grey tends to wash out the look as the white checks in the jacket are dominant and resolve to grey from a distance. I also happen to think grey trews look too formal with this jacket.


    I won't forget that ;-)

    Depends on the type of wool. Color isn't the only factor which contributes to formality, though perhaps you didn't have any more casual gray trousers available to you. But I'm generally not a fan of looks that are entirely cool on top and entirely warm in the bottom.

    So the trews r Panta, or the shirt? Perhaps white slacks- the prob at the moment is that bifurcation from top to bottom. I agree that this is close to to being very good/different

    I'm guessing:

    Herringbone Sydney - jacket
    Panta NYC - trousers
    Kamakura - shirt
    MJ Bale - tie
    Crockett & Jones - shoes

    Fair enough. This jacket actually has a faint cream undercheck as well as light horn buttons - 'warm' elements which, I think, help tie it to the bottom half.


    Gerry got it.

    Pliny - yes, I have white slacks but I think the look with navy blue jackets is too... naval!

    I like that your trousers exhibit some drape when seated, rather than that all too common bursting at the seams look that accompanies trousers which are too closely fitted.


    BTW, your seated posture is exemplary.

    Rubbish. Legs crossed in this lewd fashion can only encourage impure thoughts, leading inexorably to moral dissipation and ultimate blindness.
