I really love those shoes. It's time for me to add some suede to my closet.

Yes, the PS announces itself, doesn't it? No suggestions for the helmet/collar issue?

This is one of the cases where my head says I shouldn't like it but the rest of me says otherwise. You do contrast very well with slim over full and colour /pattern under neutral/solid. Creating hormony out of discord is a rare skill indeed!

Because even leprechauns need security guards...
and because my students pinch me if I don't wear green...



^ Notice how my amazing photographic skills allow me to make my lovely mint green shirt blend seamlessly into the beige walls in the background.

Are you sure that you're with the NOLA Chamber of Commerce?

Yeah, but even this dude is wearing socks.

Wear Thom Browne: IMO, is crying out for a square with those or slightly more muted colours but in an abstract or pictorial design that has a much higher percentage of white, and much less orange. Perhaps some dark gold in it too; like one of those Versace baroque pattern squares.

I think it's wearing whatever is your own style, to the best of your ability (which is really what we should be doing all the time, but I suppose it should be construed a day of refining technique rather than experimentation).

The silhouette is fighting the colours and vice versa. Instead of an unexpected one-two punch, it's trying to throw both fists at the same time.

I really don't get any part of this.

Thank you - and you're quite right of course. Outdoor pics are unlikely (unless I take to the balcony in the mornings) though as we head towards summer the light (and thus pics) will get better...

I also apologise for the terrible photo - my first go with a self timer!

If you must mix ties with jeans go for a wool or knit tie.
MoK got most of it, but I'll go a little further - and this is meant to be constructive:

This is a car crash. The top half is pure business dress, except your collar is undone - which generally looks awful with a tie, irrespective of context. The jeans are incongruous and bad on their own - they're baggy and it appears they have been hemmed without preserving the seam at the bottom.

The shoes match the top half - meaning (perhaps ironically) that if you'd simply substituted matching trousers for the jeans and done your collar up, this would have been quite a successful MC fit.

Something I have often noticed about your fits - your suit trousers are not particularly slim-cut, yet you have the trousers cut really short. I've seen this less-than-no-break style look OK on very slim-cut suit trousers (a colleague of mine sports it and gets away with it) but in your case I can't help feeling a modicum of break would be a huge improvement.

I definitely do not have a Thom Browne physique. As for the square, I like it, but I can't really defend it. It used to be one of my favorites, but I think it may be a bit too strong against a darker jacket. My taste in squares has definitely evolved to favor patterns over solids.
