I am remiss with following up as requested by some, for this previous post about pattern mixing with a houndstooth vest and plaid pants, so here it is!

I like the vest, I think it will be very versatile with other outfits and can be easily mixed and matched. Partial tuck because the pants are high rise and wide leg, but don't want to feel bulky around the middle. Also, I tend to run hot so this is a more realistic warm-but-not-too-hot outfit.

Unfortunately, my seamstress permanently closed so I'm on the hunt for someone new to hem the pants. She was so talented and knowledgeable and was able to alter all kinds of items. She smoothed out gathered shoulders for a leather coat! Finding someone with that level of skill will not be easy.

The black and white sweater was returned. Pic #2 added colourblock sweater again for easier side-by-side comparison. I really like the diagonal movement of the sweater, but after posting selfies I felt really hot, especially with the shirt underneath. However, our place is too warm so out in other settings it will probably be fine.

Pic #3 for fun.

Suggestions are always welcome. Thanks for looking!
