Sorry people, I love you all, but Pingson is so much better than everything else this week (or pretty much any week), it's not even funny...
To my (British) eyes, there are a few too people on this forum who wear brown shoes when black would be better...
 It's true - people often say 'nice suit' when I'm wearing an odd jacket and tie...
Well, well, well... we're building a new house this year, which is going to absorb practically everything we've got (and much more besides). It's meant sitting down with my wife and having to agree to reduce any clothes purchases (well, personal consumption in general) to a minimum. Basically, I've had 2 years of relative overspending, which I could get away with for various reasons. Now, it's back to normal. Essentially, this means buying nothing at all on impulse. It...
 No, it's not. And please don't start this again. There are recorded uses that go back to the early 1900s - see the Wikipedia article on the term. No-one knows the its origin, but it's certainly not from WW2.

It doesn't mean that you think you're better than anyone else or that you can't develop further, just that you know what you like, what works for you, what are the...
Absolutely lovely, and way too tasteful...
I'm going to depart from the crowd here.   I gave @in stitches a thumbs up for the suit, which is just awesome. And the location and photography is nice FWIW. However, I don't really think that any of the shirt, tie and PS really worked hugely well here. The tie and shirt work with each other. However, the wide-spaced stripes seem incongruent with the texture / weave of the suit for some reason - perhaps the shirt is very CBD and the suit is most definitely not. PS just...
 The Quantock is the nearest in colour to this one, but the pattern is more subdued: http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/283/jacketing/fox-quantock-tweed-jacketing The Exford and the Edgcott have a more flamboyant patterns, but different colour schemes: http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/286/jacketing/fox-exford-tweed-jacketing http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/285/jacketing/fox-edgcott-tweed-jacketing  Ona  related note, I see that Fox have put their full basic...
