You're doomed, Willin. pB is legion on this forum.
It's inescapable! I don't even now what it means, hahaha. Thanks though, Thelonius! Haha
Corbera, is that one of your own? Sharp.
Yes, it is. Thank you.
Do post more FC, I'd like to see a variety of tweed coats and there are not enough photos in this thread.
I'm a fan of yours. I try to keep within 10 or so post numbers for no reason.
I think it arises from a play between your name and Will.I.Am, the rapper from the Black Eyed Peas.
I'm gonna pick up a Bookster jacket this fall, so I hope people can comment on the quality and durability of the product! I'm a tweed man.
B, what do you typically pair with that tweed?
Not quick. I would say about three months though it varies with holidays etc.
As I look back: mostly with dark denim, suede chukkas or bluchers, and a OCBD without a tie. No pocket square. Sometimes with moleskins or corduroy pants in brick-ish tones.
I was hoping that you wouldn't say gray flannels. I thank you for not disappointing.
It took me a while to figure out a way to wear it...and I wouldn't insist that how I wear it is entirely successful.
Sometimes these kinds of patterns are NOTORIOUS to work with... I have a silk / wool blend SC (wore it yesterday) in a similar pattern... Definitely works best with denim and suede.
I think it would definitely *work* with medium/dark gray flannel, but I hoped that FC would be stepping outside the safety zone. Gorgeous fabric. I bet it's not quite so bold from a few feet away.
Said like Buzz Aldrin.
Flannel would werk, fersure, but I think that olive cords might also.
