SBPL 1B ftw. I wear that config as SCs all the timeI'm continuing my research into formal wear before I pull the trigger on anything, and I've been thinking a lot about navy velvet.
The question is, what to do there ...
- Notch lapel single breasted?
- Peak lapel single breasted two button? One button?
- Shawl lapel double breated?
My tailor insists I should get something in velvet that I can also wear as a suit (i.e. navy velvet pants). I could pull it off in NYC but not sure I want to lol.
She wants to pull that off, she can be my guest. It would look great on my kitchen floor. For guys, though, the old saw is that you’ll be lucky to pick up anything other than lint.Or if we look to women for inspiration, there are some interesting things floating around that make me think velvet is almost pull off able
The Pecora Nera collection are all brown tones, and arent particularly well suited to spring/ summer...gearing up for my next commission, and want to get some input here from people who may have first hand experience with some of these fabrics
- any thoughts on Drapers Ascot (4-ply open weave, 370g) vs. Lovat Bard (3-ply open weave 390g) for a standard, 3 season-ish, 2 piece suit?
- would LP Pecora Nera (290g) be a good choice for a S/S Neapolitan-esque sport coat (particularly this swatch)? I am looking for a grey-ish patterned sport coat to serve as a S/S version to my J. Press. F/W herringbone tweed
gotcha, yea I honestly dont mind it having a bit of brown tint...but i'm primarily looking for something grey-ish kind of like this picture, that i can wear with navy/brown/dark grey/british khaki trousersThe Pecora Nera collection are all brown tones, and arent particularly well suited to spring/ summer...
