    This looks pretty lean with a relatively strong shoulder. Do you think Zizolfi is closer to the Blasi school or just a variant of the Attolini school?

    I only know "Blasi school" through @dieworkwear 's post and a couple other written sources - I have no first hand experience that I know of. But this jacket is less "round" overall than the typical Attolini-esque jacket. I wouldn't say that it's lean though. That may be a product of the camera angle and also the shoulders making the overall silhouette look more tapered. But actually it's looser around the waist than almost any other jacket I have from Naples. When I showed it to Dionisio at Sartoria Formosa, he thought the waist was too loose.

    Extra -

    Borderline top five (interchangeable with the Tombolini) was this Boglioli though the tie definitely goes in to the ten, Drakes navy.

    and because I would have to have at least one suit (for work) it would be this Rubinacci though it does show the Corneliani tie making up my ten

    Nice Cleav, though I didn't get the chance to announce you! [​IMG]

    Finally, dare I say it, a European contribution...though might be fighting words in the current climate. How about, simply a contribution across the pond from Murica until all referendums are settled.

    I believe @aportnoy will be making a post in the near future, to shift the balance again to our side of the pond. Thanks gentleman for such fine posts.

    @Mr. Six, This one stopped me in my tracks. Would you tell me more about this jacket's fabric? Is it correct that this one is the Hunt & Winterbotham heavy flannel? Is it a herringbone or is that just my (incorrect) interpretation of the photo? Do you know the fabric weight?

    @otterhound Well, here's a bit of a mystery. I'm pretty sure that there's a H&W tag inside the coat, but searching back through my email receipts and the NMWA thread, it appears that it's actually a Fox Flannel. 17-18 oz. Definitely herringbone, but a very subtle pattern that doesn't "band" or "track" at all. It just blends from a distance, which gives it the "char-blue" character that was used to describe it when the GMTO was put together. @gdl203 can probably confirm. Sorry for any confusion. Now I have to look at the label in the coat when I get home.

    If there is a W&H fabric tag sewn in it, that was a mistake by the tailors. It is indeed a Fox flannel from the jacketing book.

    @EFV will likely have a post today or tomorrow, so looking forward to that.

    All current posters are invited to add to their pictures. I don't mind seeing additional jackets etc., but pairings of the original 10/5 are especially encouraged.

    Today for me, the brown cashmere subtle herringbone I posted earlier (looks solid here), tattersall and tweed (jacket's color is impossible to capture with my iPhone...nori green is the best description with a red/rust overcheck).

    :D I demand an additional sport coat from Formosa gratis to make up for this grave error.

    Man, there's been some great stuff posted. I'm about to lower the quality curve here, but at least the West Coast gets another representative.

    My five sport coats and ten ties:

    [​IMG]
    L to R: Navy flannel, cream and dk brown glen plaid, med. brown herringbone tweed, med. green herringbone tweed, dk brown velvet.


    [​IMG]
    Reds, L to R: wool solid, wool neet, wool stripe


    [​IMG]
    Green and Browns, L to R: silk knits, shantung stripe, vintage stripe. (Might substitute the brown knit for a black.)


    [​IMG]
    Blues, L to R: mohair/wool knit, wool solid, silk neat


    I'll post pics of them worn together over time.

    Edit, here there are:

    Same jacket above and below but the color is more true in the one above.

    Our taste in ties only partially overlaps, but I heartily endorse your five jackets.

    Thanks B. Someday I'll probably replace the velvet with a 8-9 wale corduroy version. Did you post your jackets? If so, I missed 'em.

    Which ties do you not like? Btw, I can't remember if the brown/blue/white stripe is shantung, raw, or matka silk. Conrad would know, which reminds me that I once posted a pic of it w/ one of these sport coats in his thread. Not sure I'd pic that square nowadays. It's a little less golden irl though:
