I think I could put together the outfit in the top photo with what I have in the wardrobe.
I have the trousers and shirt for sure. The tie I show with the blue jacket is similar to the two above (it's my regimental tie) and I have a blue/yellow stripe as well. I would, however, like to get a wool tie; textured and matte; and a subdued, but contrasting pocket square.
I'll post a photo with the proposed outfit; while I shop for a new tie and pocket square.
Thanks all; good introduction to this website for me.

Unfortunately, I don't know the overseas market that well. But if you already get your sport coats custom-made, I imagine you can get trousers from the same tailor.
To be fair, both jackets were somewhat of extravagances for me; hence ten years between purchases. I won a contest on Bookster's IG page that allowed me to purchase the second one (the blue one in the initial post).
I believe they are statement pieces and I'll try to build the outfits with RTW items.

If you're new to the site, you may find the "Classic Menswear" section of the forum useful. It's a much busier and more active part of the forum than "Style Advice."

I think if you start a new thread asking for style advice, then the thread is more suitable in this part of the forum. However, if you're participating in a thread at Classic Menswear, it's also fine to ask people for opinions/ suggestions. You may find a useful community there.




You may also enjoy the HOF thread, which is where people post their daily outfits. Sometimes it can be a nice place to get outfit ideas.

I have no idea if these are good or not. But they're £85 and located abroad. Maybe the OP will find these links useful.



I recently purchased two pairs of cords for Peter Christian to possibly wear with the tweed jackets.
Due to Brexit they could not ship straight from UK to me in Germany, so they took a slow boat to the U.S. then back to me. Nice trousers, though. I'll post up a photo next time I wear them and I'll check out their selection of cavalry twill and flannels, too.
Checked out Drakes and Cordings today. The regimental striped grenadine ties from Drakes are to die for!
