Description

As you might know allready, i love classic outfits. it was time to do another one, when i found this lovely wool – cashmere blend glencheck i felt in love with and knew, what i wanted to do with it:

meet my new trousers pattern: selfdrafted and with a higher waistline again (i am a little over it with those love hanging trousers :-) – at least for meself.

the waistcoat has a different colar solution this time, but is aside of this the same pattern i allways used.

the lining material is a superfin cotton in a Liberty-kind-of print. i still have enough left so i will do a classic men’s shirt as well with it!

hope you like the outfit!

    Brilliant! The double pockets are so stylish, and the Liberty print just makes me smile! Someday my trousers will be as well-fitted as yours. Perfect!

    Gasp! Just when I thought you couldn’t get more fabulous! Ralf this is so incredibly stylish. Your attention to detail is astounding, as usual. Mens clothes on the whole are quite dull but you take it to a completely new level. That lapel is so chique, the detailing of the bias cut welts is perfect. It is more than stunning and you wear it sooooo well. I feel so honoured to be party to your gorgeous creations xxx

      there janene! if we all agree, that mens cloth are mostly dull and boaring, the only thing we can do as a response, is to create something more stylish and nicer! – well i keep on trying and thank you meanwhile so much for your lovely comment! it is great to have you as friend! thank you very much again!

    Wow, your suit is just fantastic!! You look really great in it, Ralf. This three-piece suit looks classic but also looks something new because of the Liberty. I like the idea. You are so talented and amazing!
