Today I wore this:
-A nicely fitting modern 6x3 double breasted jacket
-A pair of Wal-Mart bought George trousers (more on this at a later date)
-Botany 500 two-tone shoes
-A vintage 1930s tie
-My one-of-a-kind "Chinatown" cowboy conversion fedora (more on this at a later date)
Here's a detailed shot of the jacket.
Yes, the lapels are quite small and that's not a bad thing. These lapels remind me of the 3 button suit jackets we see from the 1920s and early 1930s with short-gorged lapels that still looked fabulous. And the shape of these peaked lapels have something so stunningly vintage about them.
Another thing about this jacket is that it is a 6x3, meaning there are 6 buttons and 3 can be buttoned. Usually double breasted jackets are 6x2, making 6x3 jackets even more unique.
It's a rarity to find such a finely fitted and uniquely vintage styled modern suit jacket. This is not your run-of-the-mill sack suit.
And that wonderful beautifully shaped brown overcoat I rambled on about in a previous post:
I received many a comment and look while sporting this combination. It think it's a keeper.
