Love the Belgraves, and the punch cap carminas have a great shape.   How bout Vass-  3 eye blucher on F and Old English II on U - these are in Cordovan -  for a narrow foot        
^^^  I hear you.  bathroom pic don't help neither.    funny tho, I was worried bout the blue and green
  yes Hober-  this and an almost identical chocolate are favs-  and yeah true, the blue's boring-   I guess I try to fly under the Dandy-radar at work.
 relaxed and easy-going's a bit of a theme lately-  subdued, casual work rig.          
  like them!-  looking thru Flusser and others, grey plaid suits get the 007 treatment a lot - white shirt black wool tie linen square     thx for the wise words everyone -  I'm inclined to agree AF,  -   beyond 3, as Flusser says, it's reward and risk .  but I've seen a few posters here do it well
Hi guise. got a copy of Flusser a couple weeks ago-  like his stuff on pattern mixing-some nice pics of Barbera and Agnelli and a few other masters.   I've  been experimenting but need some help  Preferences?        Ties are Henry Carter 7 fold, Hober Macclesfield and Harvie and Hudson.  Squares are Hober Challis.  Suit is a Huddersfield POW by Bookster.  Shoes Vass Oxblood Old English II +...
    Fidel FWIW  what I do (results below)  is 1. hold the square out flat 2. pinch the dead center between forefinger and thumb 3. pull down the sides so it hangs like a deflated parachute 4. with the other hand grab the bottom and give it a bit of a twist so u get some vertical grooves spiralling down 5.  fold vertically in half so u maintain the grooves.    This gives u the scalloping effect in the pics.  6.  carefully tuck into pocket so the grooves are visible....
  Weight, cloth and color up to you and depends on what u want no?  but navy's versatile.  Cordings makes a  decent vest in merino.  -Have u considered a sleeveless 'slipover' instead?  Easier to get the fit rite.  Vests are tricky           Me, long-Sam Hober & another guy doin lunch  
    Aaaah I see, were u referring to the grenadines in the pics?  If yes, they  definitely soften and thin with use.  I like the texture of grenadine squares, they're a nice contrast to say a linen tie.
      I am also UK 9-9.5 in EG 82 and UK9.5/European 43.5 in U   my feet are not especially wide, so you may be 43.5           sounds like good advice, but it may be tricky to get consistency across different feet/sketching abilities
