On the bat wing versus butterfly wing bow tie- see Roger Moore and Sean Connery on that blog. Note Roger's shirt ruffles.
I already did. And he looks awesome.

The whole look gives off an late-80s vibe to me (colours & textures especially). Personally, I loved the clothes in that era, so rock on. I suspect that you will find that it is not SF's preferred time-period, however.

In that case - as I look out the window into overcast skies and steady drizzle - lucky you!

The tie is perhaps a little subdued for me, but very much in the colour spectrum I like to use with navy suits, and the contrasting pocket square and the hidden maroon socks are examples of the little eccentric/non-SF touches that I enjoy using. And of course, the trouser leg is a trifle wider than most here prefer. So, yes, this is very much how I like to see myself, which is how I interpreted the challenge. My only regret is the lack of natural light, affecting photo quality. I might try again shortly as the sun seems to be poking out a little from behind the clouds...
^ The pochette I'm uncertain of, HF, but there's no faulting a classic gentleman's club ensemble
I actually am just about to go out to have lunch and read the papers, pending some work later the afternoon, but only at a rather pleasant local deli/cafe rather than a club... the tragedy/blessing of living in the provinces, I'm afraid.
Appologies for the somewhat blury images - still trying to figure out this new digital camera of mine. Anyway, today's rig features the third wearing of my bespoke William Field DB with light blue shirt and silver/grey ribbled Ben Silver tie.
Awesome look, Mike: Great, suit, Spoo. Fabric reminiscent of OD/OT: BTW, glad you learned from Mike how to blow-dry those shirt collars! O: Too bad you didn't take the time to PhotoShop your tie and reverse the stripe pattern. Otherwise flawless DTO. Truly love everything about this except the length of the pants. (I'm old school; can't use to the modern/short length.) Forgot one: Fred H. will think the PW is a little too OS/UCl! (Just Kidding)
