    When you are mentioning brown jackets, are you referencing sport coats, or an actual outerwear jacket?

    (I haven't really worn sport coats much, but am open to it. How about on the cooler days where I'd like something that gives me a little more coverage?)

    As a spin off on Parker's great thread, i decided to start another thread on GRAY ... second only to BLUE in my opinion as the greatest color a man can wear. Gray is like a canvas, which allows you to paint to your heart's desire (or detriment).

    My personal preference is for mid and light gray ... any variation from stone to charcoal can be a winner also, when done right.

    Some examples to start it off ...

    That DB was made by P Johnson Tailor in Paddington, Sydney.

    I actually tried it on (as a Master Garment) when I got fitted for a suit on Tuesday... It is sublime. [​IMG]

    Also, I agree Niidawg, gray is the most versatile colour there is for suiting, with navy a close second.

    Eagerly awaiting my gray, SB POW check from P Johnson now![​IMG]

    Gray is always wonderful, but best of all in flannel.

    I like gray, and have it in all shades, but navy is my favorite.

    Yup - if i ever make it down under (here's to hoping for a work trip to HK and AUS this fall), P. Johnson will be on the list of places to check out.

    The stuff i've seen from them so far has been stellar. Have they been around for a while? Hadn't heard of them till i set up my blog and saw their feed coming across thru Ethan's blog.

    Wow, I really really dig this suit / color combo. Even despite the strange cartoon head. Any more info on this? Is this someone from SF? Well done.

    I think they've been in the biz for a few years, friend. Used to be called the Suit Shop, when Patrick was just starting out. Like you, I only heard about them through Ethan's old blog (the pre-tumbr days).

    They also sell some Drakes ties for a relative bargain.

    Worth a trip if you're ever in this neck of the woods.

    Give us a yell if you make it down here, niidawg; be awesome to catch up!
