    I'm not a huge fan of the fabrics on any of my sportcoats, actually - but that's what happens when you can only afford cheap RTW and some cheap MTM from time to time, lol. At least I hope I'm learning to turn what I have into cheap but coherent outfits. [​IMG]

    I wouldn't wear it to the office, especially if the pattern has a lot of white in it.

    Don't care for it myself so have no interest in it as a casual suit. I'd much prefer glen plaid. But since you said you like it, the last two sentences were typed for my own benefit.

    It's quite a busy check, perhaps a version with larger grids would be more pleasant for the eye.

    How about the tan/black variety?

    I imagine it resolves to brown or greyish brown from a distance so maybe. Up close it still strikes me as a little too busy and a little too out of the ordinary for one of the still-kinda-dressed-up industries.

    I think glen plaid, and preferably a smaller scale, lower contrast one, is the edge of business suiting nowadays. But, again, I dislike houndstooth suiting so maybe that overly colors my view of things.

    Odd coats need to be made up in check fabrics like Ed & gdl use, but then again I would have suits made up of horse blankets so YMMV.

    :( i thought it was awesome. maybe my pic was too small. also, the black tie is cashmere, and it has a really nice texture that is not showing in these pics.

    ah well, maybe next time. thanks for replying though.

    I have resolved to adopt a gdlesque approach to MC. He is the single-most person who not only dresses well but also incorporates a pcock attitude while conforming to a corporate-mandated standard. It should be noted that I will forgo the brolick watch thing. I will find the PRL equivalents to the Drake's ties he wears (because I'm not spending no more than $50 on a tie) and keep an eye out for the #awesome odd coats he dons. Images are courtesy of 1. For instance:

    For SW&D I will stick to my own thang because son is wildin'.

    Take this how you will. I have no regrets.

    ^ There really isn't a PRL equivalent to Drakes, Marinella, Holliday & Brown.

    H&B is my favorite

    Seriously, this. That pic of his closet he posted recently inspired some serious odd-jacket envy.

    Come to think of it, based on my questions above, I may just try to ape his patterns when looking for a new jacket :D

    Depends on what kind of tie you're looking for, jrd. I've seen plenty of PRL over the years that's in the same ballpark as the ties NORE quoted.
