    Maybe one of the best I’ve ever seen. Makes my BB suit look like a rag

    Would it be weird to ask him who made his suit and who his tailor is?

    Is it the suit or the tailoring that sets it apart most? I really feel that great tailoring is crucial. I'm a smedium so take quite a bit of my purchases to my tailor, just to get them to the right size. But he's so good that by the time he's finished, even something that I originally thought was the right size looks very different. He can make the cheapest stuff look great.

    Nope! I’d ask away.

    Ps. Please share with us the maker of his suit.

    I'd go with parka as it seems more versatile.

    I think either a white or a black turtleneck would work with that. It's a bit of a departure from the traditional button shirt look, but personally I like the blazer-turtleneck combo.

    If you google something like "how to wear a burgundy blazer" you will find all sorts of ideas on their image search.

    A polo wouldn't work with velvet. The contrast would be too jarring. The photo is styled correctly. The jacket needs a white dress shirt, dark wool trousers and black shoes. You could try a charcoal turtleneck.

    Now that's pretty cool. Perfect for the holiday season.

    Overcoats are expensive so one often has to compromise. If you only have one, charcoal is a more versatile option, but many people wear black. It’s not as elegant as it could be, but in the great catalog of sartorial faux pas, it’s minor infraction. I wouldn’t worry about it until your coat wears out and you need to replace it.

    sorry for all the blazer post but im slowing building my wardrobe up

    just saw this, the white one, and im kind of drawn to it. like a lot. But, I fucking HATE all the other colors. Is this something I could pull off similar to the pictures for a date night/work outfit

    it looks nice, but idk if its worth 110 more than the camel brooks brothers I posterd earlier
    Those look like pretty different jackets to me - the SuitSupply one looks more like a natural linen, summery jacket. Hard to tell from just that one picture, but it seems like an apples and oranges comparison. They both seem like nice jackets - I'd go with the one you like. (And with the Brooks Brothers one, it's hard to go too far wrong for $30...)
