Go to Italy - then you might get it.
Apalling tie. Very ordinary suit. Looks like it's off the rack from David Jones but if it's bespoke or MTM those people have no style which coulddistinguish it as such. Sorry.I wish people here would just pull back a bit...stripes, checks, dots, detract from true elegance which remains simplicity.IMO one of the most elegant outfits is a navy suit, white or pale blue shirt and navy solid tie. Fit and Fabric are utmost.Start from there and expand within the same philosophy.
For those wanting driving mocs I can recommend a store in Rome called Il Gergo...ilgergo.com. I bought several pair when I was there last year, but when I returned to Melbourne decided on another, which I ordered through their online store with no problems at all. Look for drivers on the site under men's but take note there are two pages of these and you may prefer those on the second page. I also bought fanastic suede sneakers in navy, which was very popular there, and...
I get my OTC wool socks from alexanderkabbaz.com. You have to dig into the site a bit to get them, but the Marcoliani are nice and they have a great range. Around $25 I think.
I was reading quite a few pages back about how guys need to sneak new suits etc into their homes without the missus catching on. He's my tip, which I think I should patent: Next time you're at the dry cleaners ask for or buy a few wire hangers and some plastic suit covers they use. Use these for your new suit. Helps to ring before and say you have to pick up some dry cleaning you'd left there a couple of days back. Sneaky eh ?
I think the only way I can demonstrate my theory is fit pics....unfortunately I don't have that set up yet because I'm a luddite. I'll get organised soon and then I'll be able to post pics. I certainly agree that if you are matching tonal greys in jackets and pants you need a solid block in the middle, like a black or navy short sleeve cardigan and tie. But I think the image you have may be misleading. For example, I have a mid-dark prince of wales grey check jacket with...
Odd to suggest that grey sportscoats don't go with grey pants. Thats the only colour I wear my coats with. My Winter and summer weight light coloured jackets are all worn exclusively with light, medium and charcoal grey, either flannel in winter or tropical wool in summer. Nothing looks nicer than a pale grey subtle herringbone cashmere jacket, patch pockets, with an icy bue shirt, pale grey tie and grey pants. Grey coats look appalling with dark blue pants and look very...
Yes, sportswriter at Australian Associated Press covering mainly Formula One, tennis, golf and AFL, which is sadly inescapable. Used to write a syndicated style column, some of which can still be read on Ludlows web site. Looking at them now they are a bit dated and my ideas have changed a little.I understand about American Tailors.
