I think that one of the problems with yellow ties stems from the fact that many of the examples we see are pale yellow, and pale ties are difficult to do anyway, and tend to the satiny. I can't see why stronger, more golden or richer yellows would not be an easy thing to get right - and especially combined with texture. Yellow as one element of a regimental stripe etc. would also be fine.
 The suit is good but I really don't like that tie pattern, colour and texture. I know you see lots of people wearing this kind of combination, but it's one of those cases where almost any other choice would be better.
 People often ask me if the way I'm dressed is some kid of a joke... ;)
 I think the trousers are generally either too short or too wide - if you are going to have wider openings on your pants, it helps if they are of a classical length, however if you want them to be shorter, tapering is better. These fall between two stools IMHO.
 I've got to agree with this. @arnathor, it looks like you're squeezing yourself into this a bit - and it looks like another good argument for pleated trousers too.
Got to say that I agree with Tirailleur that this was all a bit ordinary. Not a train wreck on the whole, although there were certainly some, but just ho-hum. Of the very few that weren't, I think EFV and Amar were my runners-up, but Sugarbutch was best. I do wear this kind of thing fairly regularly but after seeing the fits here I'm beginning to change my mind about it...    
@Gianni Cerutti, that's completely insane, but somehow it works for you! The jacket is beautifully cut and the tie is extraordinary. I would say that the pocket square is perhaps a little too close in colour to the tie (if it's possible to make any comments about colour here...). Is your tie on Viagra BTW?
Okay, I wore this exact outfit this week, for precisely the reason the challenge specifies. I don't do very well in heat, so I tend to move to summer trousers etc. as soon as it gets warm. These pics are from a couple of weeks ago, when it was suddenly early summer-like for a couple of days, but they will do... the first picure is best for fit, the last for colour.   Details: Aquascutum wool/silk jacket; Kamakura shirt (in a very fine blue/green grid); Passaggio Cravatte...
Okay, now that is quite simply the best suit I have ever seen you wear, Stitchy. I very much like like the interplay between tie and PS, which is almost Braddock-like.
  Good calls on both - the vintage shops in Harajuku / Jingumae are certainly not cheap by western standards however, and it seems that Japanese enthusiasts will still pay well over the odds for any old American crap. There are some amazing 'unbranded' type leather shops inside Ameyoko (as opposed to the shops that line the streets), however - one warning: when I visited with a larger American friend (not obese or anything, just a bigger, taller guy) in December, the shop...
