thats what happens when you go laying on the beaches of Mauritius
naah - no drama. i made a joke about a Spoo vs Spoozy collabo fit from the weekend. Spoo and I went back and forth a bit on here and via texts about the use of smileys and how they diffuse the sting in a post etc etc.
just playing off of that to pull Spoo's leg.
he is a good sport, i think.
Ah, gotcha. Yeah, smilies cover a multitude of sins, it's true...
And the shoes? Like Mercury's winged footwear, they should not be worn by mere mortals. But you sir, are at least a Suited Demigod, so you get a pass.
(Oh OK...I can't pass up a cheap shot...Vanity Smurf called...he wants his shoes back!!!)
The tie is 2.75. Its a Panta. It is narrow, but I like it on the square tip knits.

(Nice tie though)
Thanks - the perils of the self timer app I dont know inside out yet.. But I assure you both are just trompe l'oeil.

Deets on the monks? And pics? PM/text me if you want.
Sugarbutch - Big fan of that shirt - details, please....
Thanks, it's one of my favorites. Alas, I can't be too specific, but I can send you in the right direction. All of my shirts are MTM by Joe Hemrajani (MyTailor.com). It was one of the first shirts I ordered, and I don't recall which book the cloth came out of. I wouldn't be surprised if it were still available.
I've been quite happy with all of the shirts they've made for me, and have referred friends as well. Will from A Suitable Wardrobe also has his shirts made by Joe.
Pretty shirt. I think this fit calls out for orange silk knots, but perhaps not orange socks.
Is that one of Ben Silver's natte weave ties?
I always forget about my silk knots. Thanks for the reminder. Sorry you don't like the socks...
I can't remember the maker of the tie. It's some Italian name that sounds like it's trying to evoke Giorgio Armani, but could very well be a legitimate brand. I think I got it at Nordstrom Rack or similar nearly 15 years ago.
