Other colors are possible: black, camel, bordeaux, dark green. Other buttons are possible: mother of pearl, vitreous enamel. Anything else is probably a SC. Could it be that this SC is one or two sizes too small for you? Do you feel comfortable when moving around with your arms? Does the SC move with your arms?
The SC feels great,it does not move when I move my arms. It's the smallest size(34) available and My chest is 34. Next size is 36, it will be too big for me or is that sometimes acceptable that sometimes people have a certain size chest but wears a larger size SC/Blazer? I was just curious on if it needs any tailoring, personally I feel like the sides needs to taken in.

Thanks BB. The double monks are from BB (the other BB, as in the store with those initials), and were ordered on-line when their price fell low enough. My shoeshine guys are antiquing them every time I go for a shine (the original color was much lighter than current).

The tie was snatched from a Barney's warehouse sale many moons ago.

[quote=acridsheep;4085422]That suit is just gorgeous. What is the make? [quote]

It's Brooks Bros. Golden Fleece - an oddity that showed up in my local branch, and went unloved until it was marked down, then I grabbed.

[quote=Orgetorix;4085461]Crusty, love the green tie and the monks. The cufflinks, ring, and watch chain are a bit too much bling for my tastes.

Glad that you like the tie and the monks - as for the bling, chacun a son gout.

As for the metal content of your private parts, for wearing that plaid, I'd say you're beyond steel - somewhere in the titanium range . . .

As for complimenting someone on wearing purple - you are so busted . . .


LOL.

It was finally cold enough to wear that thick ass flannel suit in comfort!! That is probably its last appearance this year.

I think this is one of your best to date, TB.

Still cold...might even sleet today.

This one is for my good buddy Reevolving. I know how much he likes the corncob special.

Love the socks, too.

Nice, Mike. Sleeve length looks marginal (and uneven?) in the pics. But it's a great fabric and fit overall. Seems like a blue shirt might liven it up a bit by providing some non-earth-toned contrast.

Great to see you posting again. The yellow socks are such an awesome touch.

Keep glutting then, because it looks great on you. Agreed with a couple of others above; stop apologising for your outfits!

I don't often wear a tie-clip, but this tie is just too long without it, and too thick & wide to knot in any other way to shorten the length. This combination is the reason I don't buy Ricci ties any more. That, and the designs are often ridiculous. I like this one's design though.

The sleeve length is actually fine, that shirt is a bit long and for some reason one shirt sleeve always gets caught up, making the jacket look uneven. I don't know about a blue shirt.....I am not really comfortable mixing a blue shirt with forest green pants.

Part of me hates this thread because I feel so bad about how I dress

Upr Crust this is my favorite ensemble for you that I have seen. While I agree that the ring is a bit much for me, you love creating some noise with your outfits so it works well. I love that tie with that suit and PC

Holdfast I have not seen you look anything but great. Very impressive.


Acrid could we get some details on the sport coat? (unless you mentioned it earlier and i missed it) The color is great!

NYR - I was showing my wife (who is also a teacher) this thread for about 30 minutes last night and she was amazed that you were a teacher and that you dressed so well.

Do you think you command more respect from the kids because you dress so well and look so sharp? I would assume this would help you out in the business world but I'm pretty unaware when it comes to 8th graders. Do they notice how different you look from the other teachers?

You need to expand your horizons. As yesterday's fit shows, you are far too conservative.

Wow, I think millions of women across the world willing to look past his crazy would disagree, but thank you kindly!

Thank you. Yes, as budget allows I'll be adding some spread collars. I need to find some that are as low maintenance as the BB non-iron.

The tie is gorgeous.

Thanks, it is made by Arnold Brant, and is 75% Bamboo. Not sure about the quality, but the fit was good, the fabric is soft and it was practically free (75% off the existing sales price at a Nordstrom Rack = $60 and no alterations required).

Thanks for the comments. As for the ring, when I had it made some 25 years ago, I chose the stone (originally a piece of malachite) unset, and didn't realize how large the stone was going to be when set. (The malachite bit the dust after being dropped on the bathroom floor once too many times, and was replaced with the current piece of lapis lazuli). As it is, the ring has become something of my "emblem".
