    I was going to ask the same thing. That looks like a wonderful waistcoat.

    A different view but no detailed shot, sorry!
    Will try to get one without the coat next time, thanks for the interest. It's not quite what I had in mind when I ordered it, but I like it all the same, may get a forth row of buttons added at the bottom?

    Great jacket, too- the cuffs, ticket pocket, lapel roll- all fantastic. Who's your tailor?

    I wouldn't add any buttons. I suspect a lower row of buttons would have to be left open to be able to sit comfortably; fine on a sb waistcoat, but doesn't look right on a DB, IMO.

    Source for these jeans? Sanforized or unsanforized?

    Thanks.

    Hey TTO.

    I reckon a fourth pair of buttons would be too much, as well. When you sat down I think it would cause problems.

    I like your outfits very much, TTO. It crossed my mind to bring out my white duck trousers today, but alas it is still too cold for that.

    With all those springtime promises in the air I decided on a slightly more lightweight outfit today. ;)

    Great look straight out of the 30's in Germany, for some reason I think German artist or poet. Im wearing my Stratoliner today.

    Thank you very much, it was a lovely day in London today, a great opportunity to break out the summer trousers and the linen/silk waistcoat!

    Wow. There have been some impressive all-vintage outfits around here lately. Kudos on finding such clothes in good shape and pulling off an entire look with them! I just try to look well-groomed, businesslike, and gentlemanly in whatever I find, am given, or can afford. It's good to have things to aspire to, though!

    This was this past Tuesday's outfit, built around my straw hat. Central Pennsylvania was warm enough for a summer hat then.

    Hat: Livity Outernational raffia straw fedora, found at a grocery store. :)
    Suit: A gray Sears suit handed down from my father, so probably from the '80s. Something about my dad's old suits draws loads of compliments on my outfits.
    Shirt: a tan, blue, and white plaid things I've had for ages.
    Tie: a thrift store find.
    Tie bar: A Rockhill Trolley Museum store item, depicting our open-air trolley 1875.

    I think I've finally hit that point where I have enough good clothes to really have fun putting together an outfit that I and others will like. I guess we all get there at some point when we're just young upstarts. It's a nice feeling.
