I can get behind everything but the shirt. It looks like a flannel to me (not sure if it is) and to me that just is out of place with the rest...especially considering the size of the plaid.

Disappointed not to see further posts from you - assumed you were going to work through critiquing every pic in this thread...

Spoo has way toned down his approach over time. He is not seen sporting shiny ties that often. He has also toned down the accessories. I am not against shiny ties in general...I have some myself, including Charvet. Sometimes that is what a fit needs.

However, what I see often when I see your fits is just too much of a good thing. I am all about loud from time to time, but when you gild the Lilly to the point of excess, it cheapens the whole look and just makes you look somewhat anachronistic. It also is just somewhat overwhelming to look at. How about a muted tie, and standard spread shirt with barrel cuffs and let the suit do the talking? You have some nice stuff and I really think if you were more careful about choosing the individual elements, it would have a better overall result.

Cheers! Well, it's not a BB it's a Samsung Mezmerise but is has a really nice 5mp camera on it with near full manual functionality. Couple that with a nice vintage camera app and...

Well in fairness that critique would be appropriate for a good percentage of the pictures in this thread. At least one on this very page IMO.

Thank you.
Jacket: J. Crew Yorkshire tweed, unlined, wears more like a sweater
Bow: the Cordial Churchman. Made with love out of scraps in a nice ladies S.C. home.

Thanks, playing with lenses as well as aperture priority

No. But he wears a lot of Teflon.

Sorry, Rob. The fit is great, but you're never going to beat him with that background.

I can't think who you mean...

Actually, "the man in the picture look rubbish" is really growing on me as an economical, back-to-basics comment. I wait for "man in picture look good".

Whew ... I was going to be upset since my BB photos suck so bad, even in FULL sunlight.

Very nice. I think Spoozy said he is skiing in Austria this week, so now is the time to wear this jacket in peace.

+1. A subtler shirt would improve the fit, but it still looks good - this is how to do jeans+jacket.

Great advice Mike. Advice I plan to follow more often myself. I'm learning a lot combing through this thread. Keep up the great work gents!

Seen it, love it.

Had that same issue with my old Palm Centro, which is why dug out my old Sony CD Mavica (great Carl Zeiss Lens, lousy storage system...3" CD RWs...slow as fark in saving and transfering.
But this Android camera is pretty darn good for being part of a phone.

I still crack up every time a watch that sketch...
