    Gun clubs are sorta fuddy-duddy by nature. I like the cooler city-colored blues/grays versions a bit better than the ochres/browns/mustards. I have no idea if either are good or bad taste,. but they are a classic pattern for sport coats.

    Really like that combo, Manton.

    Thank you. As to length: it covers my behind. I have long arms.

    Thanks. :)

    Autumn vs. spring wasn't quite what I had in mind, but I see what you mean. More opportunities to wear the coat and more combinations to be tried. Yay! :)

    Yeah, yeah... I'll see what I can do. Maybe another comparison? :happy:

    Thank you. I'm a 'mere' 6 ft. 5 in.

    Colour in the first tie: white and light blue flowers with red hearts.

    Thanks Prof and gdl: I hadn't imagined tie 1 and square 2. I may yet try that.

    No offense taken. I asked for comments. May I ask what you find hideous about the jacket: the fabric? the cut? the pockets?

    I think that jacket is great - but def has a warm, fall feel to it, so it looks at odds with other elements that are more spring or summery. I personally prefer to wear sport coats in a business casual way, so I would have worn this without a tie and with a blue oxford and slim khakis, but that's just my preference.

    The cut looks nice, although I feel like it might need a bit more casual of an outfit to go with it.

    After reading Parker and GDL's thoughts I do think that the tone is just a bit too warm for my personal tastes. Perhaps i'd like it more in the context of more warm/texture-y materials, like some type of knit tie and some brown cords (?). But I don't have experience with that type of pattern so that's just my unrefined instinct talking.

    that sounds like a great outfit.

    This is quite nice, but I feel like the outfit deserved a bottle green or a brown square to finish it off nicely

    That would also look nice, gdl, but the white linen gives the look a lightness which seems appropriate for the season.
