Better pics to come once it arrives. Definitely an oddball suit.
Winter coat weight, dressy western style. For the well dressed stockman?
The double breasted is actually a charcoal grey with chalk pin stripes and that pipe was my grandfathers when he was alive and I kept it because it was something to remember him by. And I dont smoke I only use the pipe for prop uses in photo shoots

Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine.
Hey Detective_Noir, now with that suit you've got to fill your collar with some great vintage ties. Pop over to the Show Us Your Ties thread and get inspired
My father used to say, 'Let them see you and not the suit. That should be secondary.'
Trombone, Blues Harp, and Chromatic Harmonica
Dinerman, you totally look like a small town sheriff out of the 50's. I love it.
Suit I got for 25 bucks from the thrift store in near-unworn condition. Just had some minor alterations done and it fits quite nicely. I can't quite decide if it's dark navy or charcoal. It looks more charcoal in this photo, but in natural light it looks more dark navy to my eye.
This is my suit made to measure by Maxwell's Tailors out of Hong Kong. I'm going to do a full post on it since Maxwell's may be of interest to some of the loungers. The suit is actually supposed to be a 3 piece with a shawl lapel on the waistcoat, but there was some kind of mixup and the waistcoat did not arrive, so one of my other waistcoats is standing in for it. Look for my full thread on it in the general attire forum.
