         Thanks! The jacket and tie are both great. I think the tie is still available ... Also pictured: Rota fawn flannel and Mazzy oxford. Not pictured but worn: Farnese brown tubo belt.
Lotsa NMWA today.  
Thanks! As with most #8 shoes, and the burgundy family in general, it seems to me that the red comes out more in natural light. But I think you make an important point, which is that "red" shoes are arguably really brown shoes. jfrater's vintage cherry G&G's show that off.
The bordeaux/burgundy/oxblood family is easy to use and great. Noodles should get some oxblood to go with his navy and grey suits. #8 for me today.
I believe the most recent discussion of shirt stripes in the Good Taste thread was prompted by comments from Foo. Here's a link to the post. Immediately after it is a comment from gdl and then a little further down some examples. http://www.styleforum.net/t/309586/whnay-s-good-taste-thread/12000_50#post_6922348   Foo's observation is that it's an issue of the ratio of the width of the stripes to their spacing. If they're spaced too far apart, they become overly visible....

I received the Japanese indigo/French terry hoodie today. Great product, as expected. I really appreciate the little interior pocket with button, the deep exterior pockets, and absence of drawstrings on the hood.
 You're not alone. The suit is great, obviously. I like the tie and square, but I think the square could be better. I agree that the widely spaced pencil stripes of the shirt are too formal for the rest.  Cleav's didn't totally work for me either. I think it's just the tie being too bright for an otherwise sedate fit. Still, good stuff from good gents. 
 1. These were GMTO's or not a part of regular stock. Versions of the cordovan jumpers are available from a couple of sources, though. I like the idea of the grain jumpers from Gentlemens Footwear. Carmina hatchgrain chukkas, Tomir sole.   Carmina cognac cordovan jumper boots, dainite soles. 2. Also a GMTO or irregular stock, but Carmina's webstore has balmorals and SkoAB has the brown calf/brown pebblegrain balmoral. Carmina black austerity brogue balmoral, dainite...
