    Not so much a last purchase, more a yes or no question?

    RL jacket I picked up a while back. Unsure of the fit (nb ignore sleeves - have yet to be tailored).

    Is there a, for lack of better description, 'yes/no' thread on the forum?

    No with all 3 buttons closed and No with 2 buttons closed. Try again with only the middle one closed.

    ha. I'd never wear with three buttons closed, it's just to give an idea of the fit (which I'm unsure about)

    I bought what must be one of the most eccentrically patterned jackets ever. Needs a few little alterations before it will fit me, but here's a pic of it on a mannequin to tide you over:
    Enjoy. Or throw up. Whichever works for you. [​IMG]

    Oh, and I also got a solid navy Black Fleece suit too.


    I love the coat holdfast, beautiful pattern.. What is the fabric? Almost looks like there's some linen in there..

    well, here is the first part of my haul of new stuff, to create "Fox Wardrobe 2.0"

    Nice stuff! [​IMG]

    I love the coat holdfast, beautiful pattern.. What is the fabric? Almost looks like there's some linen in there..

    Thanks! You know, that's what I figured too, when I saw it from a distance but actually it's 100% wool. I think the thing is that it's quite "tightly spun" yarn (for want of a better word), and the weave is a bit more open. I'm sure those are the wrong technical terms but whatever, it gives an illusion of there being linen there.

    Foxx - nice Kiton, and great C&J suedes.


    For me - besides the Blue Lobbs (hopefully to arrive this week), just a few pocket squares from Jamison. Trying hard not to spend any more this month.

    Foxx - the narrower lapels of the BF don't suit you as well as the wider ones of the other coats.

    Just a thought.

    thanks-- it is the birdseye Isaia from Sierra Trading Post, i think they still have more. It's double vented, FF trousers, a nice light/ medium weight wool.

    I agree, the narrow lapels suit was more for fun/ going out, but have to admit it seems like it will look pretty good once tailored. again, like it much more than expected.

    Aquascutum nick hart blazer
    2 brooks brothers shirts in gingham
    1 pringle lambs wool jumpers
    1 pringle merino wool cardigan
    pringle skinny grey trousers
    churchs grey brogues.
    The brogues are kind of strange. Instead of saying NY, london, Milan, paris on the insolde it is just NY London. The soles are also bevelled and have a painted black sole. They are also more elegant then what you would expect from churchs.

    yeah, that black fleece is a little different than other stuff I've owned. I might have to keep it for nights out to dinner, broadway shows, or jacket n jeans nights. hmmm.

    Well, surprised by a delivery today-- NM had a $500 off suits and ties on sale when I was there last week. The store charged me on the day of the sale, and fedexed everything out yesterday morning I think.

    Christ, I have to get back to work overseas to pay for all this stuff!! [​IMG]
