Your linen suit is a beautiful color but not really my preference for a summer color. Perhaps I just dont have the chops to pull it off.My concern with a darker brown is that it can look a little too much like feces. I know that sounds crazy but it is what I think of.I quite like the shade of the second linen suit you posted. Has more of a gold tinge to it and steers away from being too brown. I wonder what book its from.
Wow, you must really disagree. I much prefer the 5167 to the 5164 - cleaner.
My friend at work just traded an AP Royal Oak Chrono (white face) and a small amount of cash for a Patek Aquanaut 5164. He said he wanted a completely in-house movement. I think this is a disaster move. His other watch is a Patek 5205 so at least he chose wisely there. Will try and get some pictures of the 5164.
Had not considered complexion with respect to the khakis - I actually have never owned a suit or jacket of similar coloring.
After trying and failing at picking out a suitable summer sportcoat, I think I am going to play it safe and get another linen suit made up. I already have a navy W. Bill (bottom swatch in the first picture) and am leaning towards something in tan/khaki. The darkhorse is the W. Bill 60142 which is a lighter blue than the one I have. Thoughts? W. Bill - Lighter than navy W. Bill - Khaki Cacciopoli - Khaki - more yellow than the W. Bill - more of a "British Khaki"
Went skiing to try to acquire lower body gains but got in a collision and cracked a rib. Tried to go to the gym this morning but it affects all of my lifts - total disaster. I am probably 25% into my cut. Have you guys dealt with a cracked rib before? Should I just stop cutting until it heals?
Has anyone had success procuring Smiths fabric from Harrisons following the buyout? I sent an inquiry to the Smiths sales email address but got no response. Looking to purchase 4.5m of fabric from the Steadfast book.
Just be patient and see if it kicks in automatically in the next pay cycle. If not, go talk to them. I don't think this is a particularly sensitive situation - they promised you a raise. If it doesn't happen automatically, I would say something along the lines of, "I am excited about the promotion and extremely grateful, however, it doesn't appear that my salary was increased, is this something you can look into?" I would probably ask HR vs. asking your line manager - it...
I think mine is a shade darker than the 60142. It really depends how you want to use it. I was drawn to the 60142 - it is an attractive color - but realized a full suit of it would just look too dandy for me. I wanted something I could wear to the office - I work in finance in NYC.
I have the W. Bill slightly lighter than navy linen suit and I highly recommend it. Perfect shade of blue, light enough that it is looks spring/summer but dark enough that it can actually be worn to meetings. Great drape and hand. Mine has patch pockets and horn buttons. Medtech got three linen suits made from NSM. Worth checking out those pics.
