    That's a nice looking field jacket...that you just forgot? Jacket abuse and neglect!

    BTW the those grenson's look fantastic. Wish I could try a pair to see how they fit.

    @yoyo: That is a very solid look. The BR fits you great in the shoulders and arm length seems good. OTR fit for you?

      How does the blazer fit look? It feels pretty darn good; actually the better fit of my BR blazers. Doesn't pull at all; pulling makes me self-conscious. I thought the taupe fit better, but actually this Birdseye blue one seems to. Anyway, is it cool, visually?
      I like the blazer. However, a navy blue blazer does not work with navy blue chinos. It looks as though you're trying to create a suit out of mismatched fabrics.

        Very true. I didn't even see that bruschetta, I just naturally assumed it was a bird-eye matching set of pants. Good point.

        Doing another all-thrift fit today:

        ON shirt: $4.00
        Gap Trucker: $6.00
        514s: $8.50
        Allen Edmonds: $5.00
        Dockers Belt: $5.00


          Thanks guys. My apologies for bad lighting; the pants are actually *grey*.

          But it's still a good point and fair warning on the potential mismatch. I know I have almost fallen into that trap myself with say, the same color cords and jacket. *Almost*. LOL - Again, thanks for the feedback on the blazer fit. I'm either going to stick with it, or maybe upgrade to my navy suit, depending on how my dad decides to dress for Easter. He's quite the dappered dude, I might say, admiringly.

          Happy Easter, fellas!

            Thanks all for the feedback and kind words.

            Haha...nice Acoustic...I know, shame on me. Regarding the Jcrew field jacket, I bought it a while back when I was a little bigger and at the time it was somewhat too short/snug. I probably wouldn't have bought it except it was on heavy clearance. I ended up putting it in the back of my closet where it has sat until I noticed it recently and discovered that it fit pretty well, if not slightly less fitted than I would like.

            The suede Grensons were a Bonobos purchase back when they were running their crazy promotions and I had some credit saved up. I'll have to check the size, but I'm normally a 10.5E in AE and I believe these are a 10UK. They're a little big on me, so I wear them with those thin Aldo inserts and they fit great. I probably could wear a 9.5UK.


              Hey all its been a while since I posted in here. Just went through a few pages, some very stellar fits. Eric and Jake, I like your fits. Shomas and Acoustic, killing it as usual. Lots of new posters lookin great too! Heres one from today from me. The shirt sleeves actually are long enough and do show some cuff, but they must have been bunched up on my left arm when I took the pic. Pretty basic but meh.

              Suit: BarIII
              shirt: Thomas Mason for Jcrew
              belt: AE
              shoes: AE walnut 5ths

                I hav have a similar looking pair of Walkovers (although they are nubuck bucks, not suede bucks) and I think they run large. I bought a 9 (normally wear a 9D), and I think I could have taken a size narrower or shorter in them. They aren't ungainly, but they could fit better.


                  @Shomas: Which pants from J Crew are those specifically? Because they look a lot slimmer than anything I've ever gotten from there.

                      I have that jacket, too. Great piece. Good for spring and early fall.

                              Inspiration for my easter outfit comes from Skyfall. Rewatched it last night, and so I went for the "resurrection" theme a la the outfit Bond wears during those scenes where he's presumed dead (ref the scorpion/bar scene, the reuniting scene with M, etc.). I don't have the leather bomber, but the J. Crew jacket is a worthy substitute.
