    Comfy Christmas fit. Skivvy is Uniqlo. Jacket is Lardini and pents from Sartore. Finished off with C&J Exmoors in roughout suede.

    Later I will don a Drake's scarf and Paul Smith overcoat to venture out into Shanghai's evening chill.

    Test-driving the new Courchevel jacket prototype, on a cozy winter's evening. These were designed by me as a hybrid of sportcoat and cardigan, perfect for apres-ski next to a roaring fire, snifter in hand. The one here is in a navy wool/cashmere jersey fabric with a fantastic hand. These are perfect for travel, folding up easily and resistant to wrinkles.

    I'm thinking of adding a patch barchetta pocket and a lapel buttonhole on the production jackets. Perhaps double-breasted and sahariana versions too...

    Happy holidays everyone! :D

    Move the buttoning point down by an inch or two, and make the jacket longer by the same amount. Look at Barena, they make a similar kind of jacket.

    This is a great post, I've learned a lot in this thread studying matching of clothing pieces and attractive combinations. I like the texture in this picture. In the 80's it was a rule to not wear cordaroid. It was so bad in the late 70's with bell bottoms that it was the third rail of fashion. Yet in your picture it adds warmth and texture. It proves good matching of color, pattern, and texture is above any rule.

    I don't know where this rule was in force but it wasn't in my world (which included NY, Chicago, London and Paris) where tweed jackets paired with corduroy pants were an old school staple. Early 80s I recall raiding Jaeger (London) for a half dozen pairs of their sumptuous cotton/cashmere blend cords.

    :D

    I made no claims of awesomeness, merely that the shoes aren't as dark as they appear to be in the photo.

    Some fits of the last days. I had an interesting photo shoot with my godchild on Christmas Day. I never felt so masculine.

    The nickname is Crusty, but yes, this suit was next in rotation, and it always makes me happy when I wear it, and on a Monday, I need all the happiness I can lay my hands on. :satisfied:

    Newcomer that sportcoat is just ridiculous. The want is so bad right now.

    Haha thanks man. It is a bit absurd, but it is pretty darn cool. Probably not the wisest purchase in terms of versatility, but it makes up for it in other ways.
