In the dark all cats are grey

You can tell we are closing in on the winter solstice because there is pretty much no daylight left even around noon. Needless to say this makes taking photos a real challenge and hence the colours are hard to make out in the photo above. In theory the brown and tan overcheck on the jacket should be mirrored in the brown tie and golden pocket square, but alas that is almost impossible to see. The silver lining is that in only a few days we are again moving towards lighter days!

The Continental Donegal
An entirely different jacket that yesterday, this Donegal jacket from French/Italian tailors Cifonelli is cut with rather high armholes and with distinct roping on the shoulders. Still there is minimal padding over the shoulders, or at least substantially less padding compared to the British tweed worn yesterday. Despite the relative modest padding, the jacket conveys a rather strong and “structured” look, giving the impression of broad shoulders which the wearer is lacking in real life.
