    For the record, Stitchy, I don' t have a problem with that shirt, just think that a light blue would be better. Or, the black grenadine instead of the blue and keep the white shirt.

    thanks, bud. do you think that a black grenadine with a white OCBD are acceptable together?

    Sure, why not? Maybe a little severe, but that's okay sometimes.

    While this works, I think the tie is too close in color with the stripes on the suit.

    :laugh: noted.


    thanks, pB. i end up picking ties that match the stripe in the suit, because i dont know what others colors to wear with this suit. i actually like it when the tie matches these stripes. forgive me.

    Beautiful suit, taking delivery of this fabric soon, thinking patch pocket blazer suit, should I stick with flap?

    Mine that was posted earlier in the thread has flaps and a ticket pocket. I personally think that's the way to go, but that's just me.

    The fabric is really great. Not too heavy and wonderful color. A bit darker than what is seen in Gazman's in real life.

    ^ I think that cloth looks great as a suit and imagine it wouldn't see a lot of wear as a SC, so unless you'd want to 'casual the suit up' with patch pockets I'd go with flaps (but no ticket for me, just personal preference).

    Interested to hear differing opinions...
