    ^I like how their jackets look

    Fabio Q. came in, fits great, enough for just a tee or shirt. Fabric is 100% wool, no lining. Feels heavy. If I get any bigger it shall not fit anymore in the shoulders. Not sure if I should keep at the moment as I want to pickup another similar navy suit for F/W '13.

    Fabio Q. jacket has a bit of a hairy texture with the weave resembling denim, which I now understand after LA Guy explaining it. Adds a nice texture all in all, not sure if it is Shah approved seeing how it wool-denim lol. I have to say what really helps is that it is a lighter navy than say midnight blue. The weave has a bit of shine. It really is like denim!

    A ton of the 3 buttons are 3-2 roll, Yoox just buttons it up. Also a ton of jackets that are actually blazers but have a button at collar as well so it's fully buttoned up in Yoox photos as well

    That looks a lot better on you than it does on me. The shoulders are key. That shoulder line fits you very well. It the shoulders don't fit right, the whole thing would look seriously off. I am considerably more built that you are through the shoulders and chest, and the "hoho drape" just sort of bulged in wierd places for me. I would keep that if I were you. Nice pick up. I'd probably wear it with baggier pants though, and maybe a tee instead of a button up shirt.

    You can also get a navy suit, but they would serve completely different purposes. This can look cool at a bar or just thrown over jeans and a tee. A navy suit would be much more formal, unless you really go nuts with proportions or material.

    Toasty, I really like that but I agree with Fok about the pants. I think you could do something pretty cool with those boots, though, and a slightly grungier ensemble altogether.

    Thanks man

    The pants are cut 19cm. It is the boots that are causing the stacking / bunching, which would otherwise look cleaner IMO. I am actually looking to do something with the boots and see if the cobbler and minimize the diameter and / or add a zipper or lacing system in the back. As is the pull on Silent boots are making pants fall oddly. I really love them despite this minor detail.

    Not sure what other pants. Please post examples and "grunge" looks :teach:

    I think you could pick anything in a darker color or textured fabric and it would turn out well. Corduroy would probably work well; maybe a slim bootcut even, or just look at the FQ lookbook that features that jacket. Cropped or rolled trousers, black derbies, anything slightly distressed....

    First jacket looks bad... The one button and overly closed quarters.. No good. 2nd pic would be so much better without the red square which is .... Also the bottom with denim and boots looks too aggressive for the top half. I'd swap the shirt for a tee. Or kept the top and changed to sleeker boots or shoes. Like some dark brown bluchers. Either way square has gotta go.
