It occured to me not long ago that one of the great sources of pleasure in popular entertainments these days is invocation of the sense of moral superiority in the viewer, i.e., to put on TV, as entertainment, a person or persons so reprehensible as to please the public that they are not him or her. (it is my only explanation for the popularity of "The Jersey Shore", which does rather take the prize for reprehensible behaviour in creatures otherwise believed to be homo sapiens.)

On the Internet as well, there are few pleasures as acute as the venting of righteous anger in response to the posting of a troll, in an attempt to silence said troll with logic and persuasive arguments. The only problem with such a pleasure is that is usually the desired response of the original poster, looking to incite flame wars wherever possible.

That would never be my intent in posting here. However, as my personal style is often at odds with the local aesthetic, if I let out all of the sartorial stops (an unfortunate habit of mine), I will most certainly be the object of criticism, which will invoke that sense of, if not moral, then sartorial superiority that brings so much pleasure to so many.

So it will be, I sense, with today's posting - a complex set of attire accessorized heavily, with more than a whiff of costume about it, but, it does qualify for today's competition - blue is the dominant color.

For your viewing pleasure (one way or another), then . . .

Ye are the Shakespeare reincarnate of SF, both in language and in dress. It took me twenty minutes to decipher your post, and another twenty to give you the appropriate amount of homage by bowing.

True indeed. I'm seriously pondering if I might ask this gentleman if he wish to pose as me for the writing of my upcoming bestseller. We could use a WAYWT pic for the back cover.

Does the umbrella count? Friday challenge:

Just to join in the spirit of blueness:

RL put out a load of items a few years back with this feature, and I got a handful at the time. It's a detail that always splits the crowd on SF, with the majority being unfavourable. Still, I think it makes for a fun change occasionally.

There's something so delightfully StyleForum about this photo. Blue challenge. Managed to incorporate a few recent purchases from earlier in the week into today's look too... must have subconsciously had blue on my mind. Got the crepe-sole suede chukkas from Zegna, and the navy wool bow-tie and the cotton cornflower-blue sweater from RL. All at decent prices, but the bow-tie was the best deal at under a fiver.

Thanks! The jacket is Ede & Ravenscroft, from (IIRC) a Porter & Harding Glorious Twelfth fabric.

Sometime I might learn to speak (and dress) more concisely, but, for the moment - I go for Baroque. As for posing for the back cover photo of a bestseller - are you sure that it would be a bestseller were my poor physiognomy on it?

A wonderful suit, Crusty. The tie...well, not my taste. Still, props for the WFO approach.

Nice job, HF. That is some serious blue working.....

I like this. The tie isn't my cup of tea, but it is certainly blue!

Sorry for the crappy pix, but Mrs. Spoo bounced on me. Anyway, all blue everything.
