People blither on about the versatility of tailored clothing. With a few crucial exceptions almost every self proclaimed #menswear buff will tell you two suits produce four outfits. This is, allegedly, simply a matter of wearing one ensemble as separates.

In practice, nobody wants to be that guy wearing an odd suit jacket, looking like he’s just run out of polyester backups being blow-torched by his overpriced dry cleaner.

Nabilmust of Sydney has mixed two of his latest patrickjohnsontailors rigs together, achieving the sought-after versatility advertisers bang on about when trying to hawk you the 2-for-1 special. Pulling off the suit-as-separate attire bears a few nuanced difficulties. 

A clean properly lengthened skirt and soft shoulders: these produce garments good for pulling double duty. And while traditionalists would frown heavily at the notion of wearing a DB as a separate, the 4 x 2 configuration coupled with patch pockets makes for something casually dressy. 

Good work, brother.

As a master in his/her field is wont to do, tailor Park executes a number of details that the less courage gent would consider faux pas:
You can actually wear pinstripe style separates, just make sure the pattern is cut on a chalk or pencil stripe. Patch pockets also go a long way to taking the stuffiness out of such garments.
The white DB is more versatile than you think - just be prepared to commit to a bold overall look.
Whether summer or winter the rules around your houndstooth sportcoat remain the same. Soft shoulders & shirt sleeves are a guaranteed winner.

Really great roll-neck inspiration.

The Eidos AW ‘14 lookbook is a master class in how to combine differing style cues in a single garment. A word of caution - if you do insist on letting the internet dress you with the whole collar pop maneuver then at least wear a damn cutaway. 

The combination of thick gauge fisherman knitting with the flecked texture throughout really sells the idea of throwback clothing. One might refer to it as ‘heightened’ rustic luxury.

Introducing Hanoi to the Christian Kimber pocket square collection!
This abstract design was inspired by the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel in Hanoi, with its beautiful green french windows. Sitting out the front having an afternoon tea I casually sketched the windows and took in the crazy beauty of the city.
Made from a 30% silk, 70% wool blend, each square has hand-rolled edges. Made in Cheshire, England.

Proud to say I own one of christiankimber's earlier 'Melbourne' squares and they are far and away the best pochette that I've ever worn. Silk mixed with wool has a lot of benefits. With a high twist yield that doesn't compromise on luster, Christian's squares are easy to fold, draping in the pocket beautifully. 
With some memorable printed designs that evoke the globe trotting whimsy of his brand, these are squares so energetic I’d wear them with everything bar a tuxedo.

I know I’ve said this before, but this time I really do mean it. 

*Cue Bill Paxton voice*

Not exactly a typical black tie rig but the overcoat is such an ancillary part of formalwear nowadays that one could be forgiven for adding something with more universal appeal.

Say, in a beautiful marled gray in a three-roll-two configuration.

Drake’s Autumn Winter ‘14 
Honesty always lifts the simple necessities like food or clothing to an ethereal plane of splendor and it is with this notion in mind that I heartily endorse Drake’s offerings for Fall 2014.
A trend has emerged of late wherein old and storied brands seem eager to abandon their history in favor of reinventing the wheel. It is a sad fact, ample consumer data has said as much. Everything needs to be sexier, more glamorous, more aspirational. To be honest, that’s all a bit tiring. 
Drake’s latest lookbook succeeds on the strength of its authenticity. Rather than going to some far off locale and creating an anachronistic brand narrative, the London based haberdasher have opted instead to keep things local. Shot in and around Shoreditch, London - the nexus of Drake’s garment production, the lookbook has an authenticity to it which is a nostalgia tinged breath of fresh air. Menswear’s recent landscape has been defined by a glut of rebrandings insistent on making things as exotic as possible. While that’s all well and good in some cases, this has resulted by and large in clothing which seems out of place and styling that borders on parody.
Drake’s have managed to circumnavigate all that with an ad campaign that puts their product in its native habitat. Set against the cobblestones of the aptly titled Haberdasher street, beautiful blackwatch ties feel right at home on models who evoke the style of the English gent-about-town. A range of painfully English styles pop against the flat backdrops, celebrating the sort of quietly humorous style that Drake’s are lauded for. Throw in some distinctively seasonal pieces - such as a double breasted suede coat - and you have yourself a great look book that never confuses viewers.
In the current #menswear climate, that sort of clarity is a rare achievement.

The newest member of The Armoury family xrxxxx in - what I’m going to assume is - the Jagnelli style Ascot Chang polo.

More impolite people will argue that printed trousers and a polo conjure up images of Happy Gilmore. For me when these pieces are expertly mixed it yields a timeless outfit that is good for all casual occasions.

High-waisted, generously full trousers in tartans & plaids mix very well with simple shirting. Mark my words: Asian-golfer-dadswear is always popping off.

One of my favorite iterations of the dinner jacket in recent memory, this version from Eidos Napoli nails a lot of the small details. In an industry where change occurs in microscopic increments, even the smallest omissions can - in retrospect - feel like wasted opportunities.

A good dinner jacket stands on the quality of its lapel roll. With a lowered buttoning point and generous bellying, the roll on this Eidos DJ hits the sweet spot, helping to distinguish it from less formal attire.

The slubbiness of the fabric is also a masterful reinterpretation of the tuxedo, subverting expectations with a summery lightweight appeal. The whole ‘tailored sportswear’ vibe can often stray into gimmicky territory but I’ve yet to see a collection by Ciongoli that didn’t nail this sub-genre of menswear.
