No shooting, today, but I have decided to try something different. I wondered what would happen if I went ivy style, but replaced the chinos with a kilt. So,...

Up top; tattersall, FT tie, LLB jumper, and a J Press 3/2 roll HT SC. Pretty ivy, right?

down the bottom; replaced the chinos with an 8 yard Mackintosh hunting tartan kilt, khaki coloured shooting socks, and LLB boots. View attachment 51975
You are looking pretty darned sharp! However, may I ask about the 3R2 sack jacket you are wearing...was the jacket made specifically for wear with a kilt? I ask because the waist hem on the jacket looks to be significantly abbreviating the depth of the jackets pockets. :icon_scratch:;)

Very nice. That jacket is terrific.

Classic pieces, nicely done. I'm curious if you had the moleskins tailored at all (aside from hem)? The fit, particularly in the upper thigh appears slimmer than what I would expect from O'Connell's.
I had the waist and seat take in some but nothing in the upper thigh or leg. It is possible it’s the camera angle. It’s a full cut and same as my other O’Connell’s trousers. PM me if you’d like any measurements; I’d be more than happy to oblige.

Chilly today and with a client review this evening followed by Lodge later on I opted for a three piece. This suit is one of three I commissioned through Southwick's MTO program. My attempt to replicate the BB no.1 sack suit consists of a Douglas jacket, waistcoat with lapels and high rise, flat front and cuffed trousers with brace buttons and no belt loops. Fabric is a winter weight flannel navy chalk stripe.

Man is that a handsome suit. I love a heavy flannel and chalk strip is perfect for it. Nice MTM choice.

Once again you are killing it. That suit looks comfy. Now that I have lost quite a bit of weight I am considering a double breasted chailk stripe suit. I think I owe myself a tweed suit, first, however.
