Me from a party today not best pics .wearing my new next tuxedo and Darcy grafton collar.
HS, that jacket is a real catch. The leather looks amazing. It really must have soaked in that conditioner. And Nick, great to see you in this thread! I really love the patch pockets on your tweed coat, and that collar is lovely. Are your trousers a lighter shade of gray? I always worry that pairing my gray tweed herringbone sport coat with gray flannels won't present enough contrast, but it looks great here!
Thanks, Patrick! The trousers are actually black and white houndstooth, so there's more contrast in real life, but they look gray in the (admittedly not especially clear) photo.
Playing around in a ghost town
Modern suit, hat and watch chain with fob, 1920s Westclox "Moniter" pocket watch, 1920s(?) necktie, 1930s spearpoint shirt.
Went for a stroll out in Markeaton Park in Derby today with my wife. The sun shone but it was still nippy enough for two layers of tweed!
As for you gents:
Dinerman - I love those boots. I can never seem to come across any that hold such a nice shape.
Luftwaffles - Great shirt and tie combo. Perfect collar.
Nick D - That tweed jacket fits superbly. Especially the shoulders!
Very nice photo and a very fine outfit. I miss this time of year over there: the briskness of the weather and the light.
Thanks for the compliment tropicalbob! Yes it was very pleasant in the sunshine - but it grew on to rain and sleet not ten minutes after this photo was taken. I had toyed with going out in something more 'spring-like' but was glad I wrapped up in the end.
Nice shot Eddie I know it well, some nice clothing there..
Lovely coat sadly it'll be time for them to go away soon, I'm standing at Belper leisure centre this weekend and will hopefully get away with my thorn proof tweed suit.
Thanks Estaban. Very true - but look on the bright side. Summer means flash ties, soft slacks and bright blazers! I don't usually look forward to my summer wardrobe but this year I have some new additions that I am keen to try out. Do you have any pictures of your thornproof? I'm very keen on them - both for the aesthetics and the fact you can just about get away with wearing them all year around.
Are you selling anything interesting at Belper?
If you attend on Sunday you'll see it in person, all sorts mostly male orientated, 'mantiques' etc....there's usually a couple of other sellers selling clothing, I bought some really nice ties there last month, parking is a breeze and entrance is a pound or two I forget.....
Sounds interesting - I'll see if me and my wife are available. I've just had a look at your blog - do you know anything about Rolls Razors? I've got a couple and one is boxed and I've never really known whether to try using them or try selling them. I think one is a Viscount and the other an Imperial.
Wearing my new favorite (and green!) vintage suit. early/mid 40's. Rest is modern Brooks Bros. Unseen are Alden cordovan short-wings with a chunky double sole.
Patrick: your outfits are always so well put together. That suit looks splendid.
Eddie: Is that a tab collar on your shirt? I like the outfit, it has that sort of mid 20th century classic look that doesn't easily fall into any particular era. It's exactly the sort of stuff I wear - i.e. not too obviously vintage.
Patrick, awesome outfit / fantastic suit (really good fit). Looks more blue than green in my monitor - I assume a green hue not a (Riddler from Batman) true green?
TwoTypes - no it is an ordinary collar but with a collar clip. I don't go anywhere without one on. And thanks for the compliment! I tend to wear whatever I fancy with no restrictions on specific era. I always start with the shirt and tie and work outwards.
This jacket needed a little alteration before it fit; bellow pockets! Circa 33-35 (NRA label in the pocket), I'm sure I've posted it somewhere here before. I was considering trading it away for something that fit better but I'm happy with the alteration. Could be an inch shorter but that's an alt. I'm not going to monkey with! Oh, and 20s-30s optimo and Palm Beach necktie. The hat has my name stamped in the sweatband, ain't that neat and weird at the same time?
That jacket is amazing. Drapes so well! And the whole outfit goes together perfectly. Love the tie. What shoes have you matched with that?
