    Tried a little bit of pattern-mixing today. As always, comments on execution are welcomed.




    side note: this jacket is technically speaking part of a suit, but I bought on deep discount to wear the jacket separate. Suggestions on shoe color and style with a full suit in this fabric?

      Dark brown brogues could work with a suit like that. Then again they can work with a lot of suits.

      I kind of prefer using the jacket separately. Not sure if I could pull off a full suit in a windowpane check.

        I dig the combination. It wouldn't fly where I work but it looks good for a night of drinking B-).

        With that beard you can wear whatever you want and look baller.

          Basic hump day navy suit. Giving the new Todd Snyder stretch (of Black Friday Nordstrom fame) a whirl. Feels fantastic and I'm wishing I had bought two. Paired with a cotton linen tie because why not.

            [MENTION=15577]Rawfull[/MENTION] I see what you're saying. Both the jacket and trousers are casual enough that I imagine I'll primarily wear them as separates, but I do want to keep my options open on the suit front.
            [MENTION=15466]Well Dressed Frets[/MENTION] Thanks man! More than one big swath of pattern in an outfit is very new to me, but college is so casual that I have room to experiment.

                Looks great. How slim is it?

                    Looks great, Ben. Is that the Spier and Mackay blue gun check sportcoat?

                      Not really that slim. I wear a 42R in S&M Contemporary and that is about as slim as my fatherly shape let's me go. I got a 42R in Todd Snyder Mayfair fit and the Todd Snyder jacket has a bit more room in the waist (thought about tailoring it but it's minor) and the pants have more room in the seat and thighs.

                        Yes! I like the brown one a little better but the blue one is good too.

                        Here is today... more Spier, first run with this blue textured suit after a tailoring SNAFU-induced delay.

                          [MENTION=2341]LesserBlackDog[/MENTION] That suit & tie combo sure is purdy.

                          May I ask what went wrong at the tailor?

                            Nothing dramatic, they just hemmed a bunch of trousers I gave them way too long, had to bring them back in for a redo and a second test fit. They are still long for my taste (full break vs my preferred half break) but I don't care about it enough to make a stink at this point.

                            I only had the trousers hemmed and let out an inch in the seat, did not tailor the jackets at all (in part because there aren't any competent "real" tailors where I live, just seamstresses really, but also because I think the jackets fit fine OTR).

                              Very nice fabric with the blue textured too!

                              Any notable reason you like the brown gun check over the blue? Asking because I have been contemplating picking one of them up. Which would work better in a no-tie, more casual setting, or are the blue and brown equal in that regard?

                              Thanks Ben
