old Eidos I don't wear anymore (kind skinny lapel high gorge 2010 ish feel type of stuff), I suppose can still wear them (else probably should just sell them)

gambled another TF ear Gucci, didn't do enough homework, turn out this is ventless, but actually is fine, though shoulder is a bit too retro (something off with the contrast, pant is just black but I suppose it tells me navy works fine too)

The Gucci jacket looks very good to me.

Shoulder is very built up (as one would expect) but it’s kind flat vs say modern TF Windsor that slope a bit (also very build up shoulder), so I guess just not used to it.

As I see, the fit is very good. Although you may prefer another cut on the shoulder, I find that it suits you and that style. Personally, I like different takes, roped (rollino), "spalla a camicia", pagoda...

Good eye, these are just wranglers dress jeans, 100% polyester definitely helps them stay clean rather than cotton that’s a bit rumpled by the end of day
Edit and it’s navy instead of black though all of pictures looks pretty much black

As recently discussed orphaned jackets. Yesterday thrifted brioni jacket in dark navy colour, it's kinda cool and fit me quite well so I kept it. But now I'm struggling with what trousers to wear with it. The jacket itself have quite a bit luster, although its still 100% wool. So I'm leaning towards ether slim black trousers ( kinda 90s minimalism look ) or straight beige trousers, there is another option with white trousers, but it's too much dandy. Grey trousers no , because its typical CM look.

Brown trousers (maybe those wrangler wrancher that everyone likes), green cords or something that looks like it belongs on a kilt. White jeans or faded blue jeans.
