Once again made use of DNA's MTO service and have a tweed jacket and pumpkin cords showing up tomorrow. Just in time for the colder weather

That sounds terrific, Brian  8). I know I'm a drag but.... PICS please!  ;)

I was hoping to wait until I got them to post a pic, but here's one Claudio sent me to let me know they were shiping;



Wow, lovely, Brian, a beaut, congrats! And I agree with Rod&you, the cords will match it superbly.

Good look, G!

Cheers, Mike! In spite of narrow-ish lapels...  ;)

Oh, no,no,no... those lapels aren't "too narrow" at all. On 2 or 3 button single breasted jackets my pet peeve is a low button stance. Especially on a 2 button Jacket.  >:(
Wide Lapels on DB's only!

What's the cut of the trousers, BB? I have had Claudio do a jacket for me yet, it's on the list though...

I always go for the Bruno style trousers...just a personal preference. I have been lucky as the cut of Claudio's clothes fit me really well....unlike some others like Adam of London, which I love their line, but they are cut for a different body type.

I JUST got the delivery a moment ago and the tweed is super soft and the cords are more comfortable than I thought....I would definitely order more cords from him

Nice one, I have a pair of black Bruno cords and I know what you mean about the comfort, it's not the same "rigid" type cords we're used to buying from Levis, etc.,
Jacket looks good, too. Like the flap on the chest pocket...

Not a sales item and a bit above my threshold for knitted polos but I couldn't pass on this made in Italy polo or I'd have regretted it later. I take the opportunity to wish my fellow Forumees a great entry to 2021 and a terrific new year!

Nice GS,  if it was a tighter fit it would be a real throw-back to the 70s
Do it well

Cheers, M, yep, I agree it has a bit of a late 60s vibe, but my days of muscle fit tops are well behind  ;)

The first purchases of 2021, first of many I'm guessing  ;D

Lovely Kersey wool Peacoat, the only thing off with it is a tiny hole in the lining, practically unworn, I'm over the moon with it.


Loake Royals with an airwear style soul, I know these won't be everyones taste but I was after something that was a little smarter, wasn't a boot and could handle the wet weather and even better they were in the sale.

Very nice the three of them, Cooper, classic stuff. Enjoy!
