    Oh heck yeah.

    Especially appreciated when I have lots of snow on the ground, and even more in piles.

    Ensiferous, it's nice of you to say that. How do I explain a 3/2 roll to the cleaner w/o being a jerk? You can see that the lapels came out lopsided.

    I'm hoping I can get a dead-standard gray herringbone on clearance soon, after seeing how many variations you played on it.

    As for the 3/2 roll, you might bring an image of a proper 3/2 jacket with you to show them how it's done. At my dry cleaner, they call it "roll the panel." I had to educate them on 3/2 rolls. Now, when I drop one off, I just tell them to roll the panel and they get it right. Whatever works.

    If this looks familiar, it's because I took some inspiration from a recent Tahmasp rig. BB suit, LE PPBD, J Crew tie, Alden 684, Tiffany buckle on Beltmaster.

    Spin,
    I like the outfit but the jacket looks a little small/tight; maybe its just the angle of the photo.

    Mixed heritage item, today. Green to make the Irish around here feel better, and Harris tweed because it's just,.. ...right.

    Absolutely love this, CMDC!

    I thought about wearing my green blazer today, and then I realized how much I dislike the whole St. Patrick's Day thing. However, I did concede to the occasion with a small touch, my green Polo bear tie.

    Ensiferous, of course your shawl cardigan fits perfectly, darn you. Kidding aside, that is a beautiful sweater and really nice outfit.

    Gamma, I was sold on the jacket even before I read the little story - being a sucker for that type of thing, I now want to find one for myself. Great outfit - wonderful harmonizing of textures with the OCBD, tweed and knit tie.

    First time posting here so I'm not sure I'm doing it correctly. J Press provinces of Ireland tie for St. Patrick's day

    Gamma, I get it! Donegal tweed! Green socks! Seriously, very nice; lovely tweed, especially.

    I have tickets to see Lķnasa tomorrow night, but I don't "get" the American rituals around this day. Still, here's Liam O'Flynn playing "The Dark Slender Boy," a lament about compulsive drinking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMvBnEvuBuA. Drive safely, people!

    Anyway, I did wear an olive green pocket square, so I'm not totally out of it. Brooks no-iron shirt, Samuelsohn jacket, Canadian navy flannels (Gala? Are these S. Cohen? Not sure), shell (!) Alden loafers I just got from eBay that don't fit (sniff!) and need some Renovateur, Pendleton wool tie, no-name square:

    Season of the mud, as Patrick says. But warm enough here to go without an overcoat. With temperatures climbing to the high 40s, we are also in the last days of tweed.

    McGamma, I'd say that so far you've got the prize for best Irish rig. Really, really nice. And I don't use really lightly.

    Duvel,
    Nice casual rig and I love the tie. Vest sweater brings it together nicely. Please identify the Bucks.

    Gamma,
    Solid rig once again and I love your choice of a knit tie. Great weave on that jacket, I have one very similar which I don't wear enough.

    Thank you, fred. G.H. Bass, about 6 years old, beat to heck. Need a new pair.

    K Street, OCBD, Eagle, Slide Guitarist FJ, and Ensiferous, many thanks for your kind comments. I wasn't sure how the "everything but the kitchen sink" look would work, so I appreciate your votes of confidence.

    Fred Johnson, the jacket has problems, particularly with the sleeves. I've let them out as far as they go, and there is a visible line from it. Beyond that, it's forever creeping up my sleeves and exposing two inches of cuff. The x-shaped pulling, however, is the result of it being cotton and wrinkling from when I've forgotten to unbutton it when I sit. It's hard to find a sack in seersucker in my size, so I'm happy to deal with it.

    Eagle, I've only heard good things about Harmony. It's in a quiet part of the county, away from the more unsavory parts of Kissimmee (where I work) and the tourist trap (where I live). I think you'll enjoy it thoroughly.

    Tahmasp, I want that needlepoint.

    Gamma, as always, a winning combination.

    Patrick, an all-around great outfit, esp the trench, cap, and PS. Are those the LE donegal tweed trousers?
