    Cross post from Casual Thread. Heavy tweeds and sweaters, hopefully working their way out of the rotation.

    i am pretty much convinced a brown tweedy SC is superior with jeans to grey herringbone or the other usual suspects. Recent fits from @DavidLane and @wigglr further validating that. Certainly not the only choice, but seems to be close to optimal to my eye.

    I have had a similar coloured sportcoat (stolen by my lil brother about a month ago)

    Cuffs appear to be too large for your legs. I have short legs and have the same issue

    Thanks; agreed. Going to tighten up the roll.

    As for your brother, that's one birthday gift in the bag!

    Found this SC 2nd hand, just picked it up at the tailor, needed the sleeves done, my arms are so short!

    Went to an event with salient dress norms. A necktie would have been too formal (the few men wearing them looked out of place). Worn with a blue OCBD and suede chukkas.

    The picture is mostly here just to provide evidence

    Still not sure I believe it's you. There appears to be a foot in the picture.
