    There will be another example in a few months coming from the top secret Swiss army suit project.

    Looks rather like a stroller jacket, at least in that combo. I would use lighter buttons at a minimum. I would also do patch pockets and no ticket. But you knew I was going to say that.

    Color man, color. Shirt and tie are too formal. Shirt I could live with if it were some form of textured cloth but the tie with that reminds me of native Americans wearing bits of US cavalry gear to diplomatic talks. What sort of fabric is that jacket? And are your trouser cuffs a little wider than usual?

    What is navy, seal skin cashmere?
    I take it by golden horn buttons, you mean buttons made of horn in a golden color?

    I think it might be known as ripple finish (not the cheap spirit). It is a worsted cashmere that has a bit of a nap and a wet look to it so that it has a slight shimmer like a seal's skin or a ripple effect because the nap can look "wet".

    No, I mean buttons made from the actual golden horns of Ragstra, the destroyer, whom I defeated in single combat with a lint brush.

    Maybe one of the nicest pics I ever managed to take for WAYWN is a blazer pic.
    Though it's modernized, almost to a non-blazerish degree. But then again I am not my granpa.

    Ok, forget that granpa part.

    And the db in almost douche mode...

    I posted each of these at least twice and the first one at least 5bln times.

    Ticket pockets on blazers make Baby Jesus cry.

    When you get gold/brass buttons on your blazer, do you use plain ones or ones with an emblem? If the latter, what emblem do you use? Would it be cheesy to use the crest from your university?
