    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.

    Taken from the P Johnson Tailor site; an up-and-coming Australian MTM outfit (do a google).

    And no, I don't work for them.

    But I am getting something made by them!!! [​IMG]

    I like this thread. :)

    That jeffreyd suit is so killer. [​IMG]

    Totally. I didn't realize that one was by jeffrey. I thought he preferred a roped shoulder. This is so 'soft' looking.

    Here's a question I posted into the quick questions thread, but didn't receive a reply. I wear a lot of medium gray pants. I personally hate the way khaki colored pants look, never wear black, and rarely wear navy. For a spring/fall lightweight jacket, what would you recommend in a business casual setting? (Collared button down shirt + pants, no suit/tie)

    Charcoal/black? Tan? What style?


    Almost anything goes with medium gray odd trousers except more gray. Try to keep the value of whatever color jacket either lighter or darker than your pants for some contrast. How about navy! [​IMG]

    Nice one, NORE. Is that the Garrison? The lapels aren't for the weak, but it fits [​IMG]. One of my favorite suits.

    ^^ Hahaha Spoo pulls that photo out once more.

    Speaking of love for grey, I'm wearing nothing but greyscale right now. Colours are overrated.[​IMG]

    Personally I think this thread beats the brown and navy one since grey really is the most verstile IMO... If this is too much of an overload just let me know... Part 1 is various grey shades, textures, and patterns in suits and sportscoats Part 2 is other uses of grey I found interesting.
    PART 1
