    He looks delightful from the ankles down.

    What’s the fit and sizing of the RL coat like?
    Would you size down? Or are they very slim?
    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    After some 25 years I just started to manufacture knit ties once again. This time in addition to the typical silk and or wool I am making them from eco2cotton, regenerated fibers. We will be breaking the line (wholesale) at MAGIC in Las Vegas, Feb 14-16.  Sometime thereafter we will post “where to buy” on our web site, www.valentinibelts.com

    Got to be honest—I quite like it except for the hat. I love seeing a man wear hats, but not of this variety. Patchwork is all fine and good, but something about this particular style isn’t ringing any bells.

    But from his eyeballs down he looks fantastic!

    It’s a great look, I love the trousers, the jacket, the shirt, tie and scarf but the coat is too long for my taste! Good post anyway!

    I love that black watch scarf.  I just gone one in the mail yesterday off eBay.

    Great look. Not sure I like the hat, but then again, it’s not something a lot of men would wear and it personalizes the outfit.

    Although I don’t really like the feel of the whole outfit, I agree with Vern Trotter - the pants do look superb. They remind me of something my father would wear, and he is the epitome of a classy dresser - who dresses for his age. No-break pants are well and good, but a medium break seems a little more mature in my opinion. Great to see!
    I also love the bag, though I’d love it more in a slightly darker blue.

    Everything looks great here. His trousers are the correct length unlike what is usually shown on this site. The shoes look especially good and complement the coat.

    I think this is a fantastic post.  I think we all could personalize this outfit anyway we wanted (i.e. with cap, without cap, etc).  I think he looks like he’s having fun with the cap; good for him.

    These Polo coat’s are so dope, I check ebay for them every day.  No luck yet.

    Caps (patchwork to boot) can be extremely polarizing but I can appreciate C.C.’s effort.  The other choices made on this day are pitch perfect.  The color combination is a personal favorite.  He is geared up in all sorts of textures, weaves, and knits.  The Black Watch tartan scarf is a nice touch. 


    P.S.  Those pants have a proper break and it is very refreshing to see this on UP.

    Wow - outstanding look.  About as classic as it gets.  I really dig the brown cap toes with the charcoal trousers.  Sharp.
