  I guessed u meant opposite of 'subtle and sober' i.e. loud.   Is that ^^^ POW ?  Hard to tell, but looks like a box check.  I have two grey POW suits, and the lower contrast, smaller scale gets more wear.   I like the 'pattern up close, solid from a distance thing'.
  It's a question for the ages, sure. I believe Aristotle dealt with it extensively in his Optics and his advice on POW boiled down to (and I agree)  'Sports coat go loud, suit go subtle'.
 Love your style Gerry.  Your clothes look 'lived in'  Classic Crusty.   I prefer the cuff-less (and pleat-less) look.  It's cleaner, less fussy & more contemporary imo, but in practice I generally go for cuffs because the extra weight helps drape.  In heavier cloths I go without, but for some cuffed odd trews I reserve for balancing gunboats.      The DM and the Norweger are two of the half-dozen or so classic men's shoe styles, so so I don't think either's going to...
Hi gentlemen  
  It's ye olde  Carlo Barbera for Lesser jacketing weedy stuff in about 13-14 oz IIRC
   @An Acute Style  I swear I was about to type 'You are the German AAS (with a bigger clothes budget)' under Dennis' fit when I saw your comment  
Hi Gentlemen      
 Yes, and the saturation generally... It's different than your usual 'low contrast' style.   @justinkapur   u always have stuff i would like for myself.  Great pieces.  In this case the repp stipes on the tie don't gel with the deco on the jacket.  Too similar spacing maybe.  That jacket is so out there that it warrants a solid tie anyway.  imo.
 Hi-   Are the tight hems an EG thing or a personal preference?  I don't like the way jacket and trews look too small (altho the waist coat doesn't help)  but  I'm ignorant where SW&D is concerned.The SEH Kelly cut is similar (soft shoulder, low gorge, narrow lapels, high buttoning point, tapered high-hem trews) and I like it, but I've seen their stuff worn much looser.    The Gordon Gekko -  flashy '80s throw-back imo
