He has a fair amount of challis, just not many pictured on his site.
In order to add to the general confusion above, I post today's mid-gray flannel 6X2 DB with soft construction and straight lapels rolled to the bottom button:
Contemplating a sport coat in this gold fabric with light blue, navy blue and camel colored lines running through it. Any thoughts on whether this fabric would be in good taste? If so, what would you pair it with?
o/o i dont care what anyone says, i like it.
o/o , what goes through your mind when you wear grey, pink and black and then decide to go with brown suede shoes?
It's pretty clear to me looking at this:
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
that black shoes would work infinitely better.
No offense but if you can't answer this yourself, you shouldn't be contemplating it.
You may very well be right on that point. I'm thinking mid-gray or charcoal slacks with a light blue shirt, but this jacket is outside my comfort zone, which is the reason for my uncertainty.
I think that bellied lapels make sense on a drapier coat. On an A&S style suit, the chest will (should) be shaped and curved. A straight line sitting on top of that seems incongruent.
My preference is for a chest shaped in this way and I think that the curved lines are more elegant (though I hate that word) or at least more natural.
Here's a poor man's Foofing of that A&S photo to lighten it a bit and show the lines of chest / lapel a little better.
Stop trying to make him conform to generally accepted notions of what looks good.
Next time he'll wear olive green shoes.
It will keep getting worse each day until you stand down.
every group needs a rebel.
I don't mind the brown suede shoes with o/o's rig. I do mind the oversaturated pink shirt, the too-close in scale tie, the way the pink in the tie is so overtly matchy with the shirt, the tie patterned square, and the giant flower.
