    I have been on a plaid suit vibe lately: The houndstooth with tan overcheck: [​IMG] http://img130.imageshack.us/my.php?i...0622281hp2.jpg [​IMG] [​IMG] . Closest to actual colour on my screen. [​IMG] Also got a raglan coat made from this fabric. No, I do not intend to wear them at the same time. I ended up getting two pieces of this english sik wool tweed. One with green and the other with orange. Got a suit made from the orange (two trousers, one plain front, one pleated - pictures to follow) and this raglan sleeve coat. more pictures at http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=19957 [​IMG] [​IMG] Got a quilted lining in the upper part. Any comments and suggestions for future are invited. italian linen: [​IMG] . Boat pocket [​IMG] . Closest to actual colour on my screen. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Tan wool (+ cashmere ??), linen and silk. Should have bought more fabric for two trousers. Very luxurious but appears not very durable. . Closest to actual colour on my screen. [​IMG] . Boat pocket [​IMG] [​IMG] . handmade buttonholes [​IMG]

    Can't do with plaids or have to many plaids.

    Just ignore him, that's what most of us have learned to do.

    EDIT: If I haven't said it before, that coat is really sexy.

    Wow, plaid suit. That takes balls. Nice job.

    At 6'4" and over 200, if I wore that I could be seen from space.

    Wow that is a sea of Plaid. You have gusto, sir. I could not pull off a plaid-suit. Then again, I'm not a huge fan of plaid to begin with.

    I love it, especially the trenchcoat! [​IMG] And that blue is rich - don't like the "boat pocket" though IMO.

    I only like subtle checks. That tan suit is a good one.

    Jovan, no need to be so rude to kitonbrioni.

    I think he meant to say "Can't do without plaids."

    Otherwise, the second part "or have too many plaids" wouldn't make sense.

    Hmm, it seems I misread him then and jumped the gun. Apologies. But no offence, I have to come to expect a fair amount of ignorance from him.

    That's harsh, dude. I like KB's posts. Not all of his posts are long informative essays but the aggregate content that he's contributed has been valuable.
