          I agree. Not a fan JDI.

            Is that a faux cork, bit driver? There is just too much going on for me to like them.

              This was a suit I grabbed out of my parents' attic back in Dec 2013 - I finally got a pic of me wearing it. I mentioned in way back in this threat:
              http://threads.dappered.com/showthre...chases/page245

              Its amazing quality - fully canvassed with a very interesting, distinct fabric - it has multicolored threads woven through the fabric, like a donegal. They're invisible from a few feet away. These had massive bellbottoms (seriously, the suit is likely from the late-60s/early-70s), that I had the tailor slim to more normal cuff proportions. The jacket needed no tailoring, and I had the vest taken out a bit (although, he took it out a tad more than I'd like):



              Some close-ups of the fabric, so you can see the texture and colored neps:







              Worn with a Zara tie, CT shirt, and ECCO shoes (my beaters because it was raining). Apologies for the mirror, the kids were having fun "brushing" their teeth apparently...

                [MENTION=8057]Jamie[/MENTION] - wow, that's FANTASTIC. The fit is great, the material is super unique, what an incredible find.

                  [MENTION=8057]Jamie[/MENTION] - Now that is dapper. Super sharp.

                    Dark on dark without much contrast. I never go this route but was feeling adventurous the other day. What do you guys think?

                    - Lands end chinos and chambray shirt
                    - Florsheim shell longwings
                    - Seiko skx173

                      Personally, I think low contrast works a lot better with something on top of the shirt (blazer, v-neck sweater, cardigan). Otherwise, it looks a little too unintentional. Just IMHO.

                      Also, have you considered buying higher-rise pants? (I say that fully recognizing that they're all but impossible to find these days.) I think what you're wearing now makes you look somewhat oddly proportioned.

                        [MENTION=9652]vespertiliovir[/MENTION] Do you mean the jacket would be in the same color/dark scheme as well?

                        I had to check in the bathroom just now about the proportions. I think I look ok and it's just the camera angle that makes it seems that way... I hope =) Thanks for the feedback.

                          Yeah I would say that's an angle or mirror thing

                            Yes, I meant the jacket in the same scheme. Adding that extra piece makes it look more intentional IMHO.

                            And I should have figured the angle played a role. Hope I didn't come across as rude.

                              Nope, I didn't take it that way at all.
