    Here I am joining the party late.

    Gray with black fleck. My favorite.

    Black with white fleck. This one needs the pockets pressed.

    Brown herringbone. This must be from the late 60s early 70s based on that loud lining! I like the jacket pattern.

    Are modern sport coats allowed?
    I have to post this one becaues it fits so well and is a great pattern too.

    BK: Ironically, I find confetti-flecked Donegal more flamboyant than pinstripes. :p Not that I have a problem with it. You're right, we need more Donegals like that these days. I'm sure there's someone or another who makes something similar, but it's probably hard to obtain.

    Feraud: That fabric is very old school. I'd say it should count if it doesn't!

    I tend to wear more sport coats than suits to work. Sport coats provide a fun exercise in choosing what to wear with them.

    Baron, your collection never ceases to delight me. Shame there's no lable in the pleated-back sportscoat. It may well have returned to its country of origin.

    Jovan, winter does get down to about 33 degress F at night in the winter in Sydney, and this year has seen lots of days where the temperature struggles at around 59-60 degrees F. What often makes it colder is the wind chill factor. It's colder the further south one goes, so Melbourne is colder again and Hobart much colder still.

    In summer, though, forget about it! Temps hit 97 degress F easily and often soar up to 104-108 degress. That is NOT suit or sportscoat weather by any measure!

    Is that the weather where every single Australian puts on a safari shirt and khaki shorts?

    ...

    Somebody slap me for saying that. Bad Jovan. -_-

    That is a work of art. Mimo at Domenico Spano here at Saks said that he had this fabric commissioned a few years ago- it sold out in like 2 weeks. He based his off of a Fred Astaire picture though.

    I love the lapel roll! Did you wear this one with the windowpane trousers?

    Funny... I don't think of Tweed, especially a Donegal as being Flamboyant.
    Obviously there are som LOUD Tweeds but I tend to think of Country Tweeds as rather sober cloths.

    Here are some of mine, I think I have posted these before. I have some more at home, all very British!

    This one was Tailor made for the Marquess of Cholmondeley in 1938.

    A bit hard to see, but this one is an off the peg from a mens outfitters, I would say late 1930s, but hard to be sure, has nice warm orange lines running through it.

    This one is a 1940s CC41 labelled Jacket. Very Bold check. No Makers mark. I will try and get some better photographs.

    Beautiful jackets and you look wonderful!

    Also, I can't help saying :eek:fftopic: look at those outfits on the ladies! Every one of them is great.
     

  13. And sandals and knee-length socks :eek:

    I kid you not.

    it's an older model Cannon and I'm not sure if they make chargers for this model anymore.[huh]

    You'll all have to just use your imagination.:D

    Best to say that the dog ate the camera.;) .......Since replacement batteries and chargers are readily available from dozens of sources.

    :eek:fftopic: If you want to accuse me of week excuses, you may want to PM me about it then post your opinions in this thread.

    Please take heed; my name is Forgotten Man… and like the original Forgotten Men, I have very little means to support my self at this time and digital camera batteries are at the bottom of the priority list.

    My mission here is not to show off my collection, my mission here is to offer advice and knowledge to those who care to listen. I do not feel I have to prove anything by providing photographic evidence.

    I assure you gentlemen, I will not hand anyone fish stories.

    I apologize, the remark was made in jest. I didn't mean for it to get your panties in a bunch.
    Well, when you get ahead of the game you can use resources like this to get your camera up and running, for around $20.
    I've no problem with this. I rarely post photos of my wardrobe on FL, even though I have hundreds of photos. You see, I was reprimanded by the powers that be for my photographic style, after my very first post. [huh]
     
  18. Dude, that sucks. I'd give my eye teeth (whatever those are) to see photos of your stuff.

    Why were you reprimanded? I don't see how posting photos of your clothes, even not seen ON you, is bad.
     
  20. personally I liked Tomasso's photographic methods. It showed combinations of colours/patterns so much better than they would be seen on a full-length photo of someone wearing them.
