    Already commented on those splendid shoes, and that Stratoliner is something else! Can we get more shots of that old sweater vest?

    Today I wore a 2 piece suit made by Corneliani in a warm, mid-grey worsted in birdseye pattern. The suit was made in the early 90s for my father and passed to me. I managed to get it altered to be less boxy than it was and I'm rather satisfied (I only need to have sleeves tapered a bit). I wore a grey striped tie, silver cufflinks with purple enamel and white pocket square (not shown!).

    As a comparison, here's a better pic of my father wearing the suit presumably at my christening party (circa 1991).

    Quite bad photo, I'm afraid... This wast yesterday (Friday), just back home from work a bit earlier than usual. In complete disregard of any unstated "casual Friday" rule, I wore a dark navy suit with three buttons (rolled), pale red with geometric design tie, white shirt with gold-tone cufflinks and gold-tone tie bar.

    A shearling Levi's and belstaff trousers... this is probably my go-to "all black cold weather" look.

    Looks really good Mondo. Always a great set of clothes. Is the sweater wool or cotton?

    Thanks, Canadian. The cardigan is a hard-wearing worsted wool. Older knit (pre-50s) feels bulletproof.

    Some very well dressed people here.

    I usually wear Levi's 541 jeans, in dark rigid, black Wesco engineer boots, and white or black Hanes T-shirts
    I'm a simple man these days. :(

    I like the angled pocket on your jackets, Claudio. Today sort of a bespoke feature but some of my vintage British jackets from the 1940s-50s have it, it was probably more common back then. Details matter!

    thanks! Are you refring to the breast pocket or the side pockets? As for the former, it was a 20's thing mostly (maybe late teens?) and virtually impossible on RTW today (except my label fo course ;) ) but as side pockets go, pretty much standard both in traditional tailoring and RTW

    No, the dramatic angle of the breast pocket. You don't see it that often.
