Thanks - the tie was an unlined Kiton wool.

Also, yours was an entry today, right? Can you edit your post to include "Friday Challenge" in it so I can include you if it was?

Sure, added. I didn't think my fit was good enough to be an entry but hell, why not? Also, I envy your Kiton collection.... I might kill a man for it to be mine.

Navi, You might need a lookout man. I can do it for 5 or 6 fits. And I'm very good at keeping secrets.

Nice fit of your own btw...though the SC looks a tiny bit on the big side.

As I post today's attire, I note that, in architectural terms, the prevailing style on WAYWRN is like that of the Seagrams building in New York - tall and thin, the bronze skin of the exterior of the building stretched tightly over the building's frame, simple lines, almost no ornamentation of any sort, but made with the most luxurious of materials.

I think most of you strive for a style like that.

Whereas you're all trying to be the Seagrams building, I'm more naturally striving for Blenheim Palace. Let us hope that my cornices, architraves, and pilasters are in good order today.

I can well imagine that my "fit" today will not be popular. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, let me predict people's reactions.

Mbreinin will hate the fact that I'm wearing purple.

Spoopoker will hate the fact that I'm not wearing ENOUGH purple.

Acridsheep will dislike the amount of bling.

Spoozy will not understand why all three pieces of my suit match.

Orgetorix will be horrified that I thrifted nothing that I was wearing (though, in my own defense, I bought nothing a full retail - I have SOME principles, after all).

Threadbearer will not understand why I'm not wearing argyles

Holdfast will wonder what deep-seated psychological problems drive me to dress as I do

UrbanComposition will whizz past my posting in his need for speed scrolling

NORE/Forex/Bigbris (I posit that they are one in the same) will be too busy reaching for an anti-regurgitant upon seeing my face to notice what I'm wearing

and

Oldog/Oldtrix will say nothing, as the Buddha of Pattern Matching instructs best by example, showing the true path towards sartorial nirvana (possibly leading to various spots on upper Madison Avenue, Jermyn St., and Savile Row on the way).

I have a complaint - he didn't predict what Nii might say

^ You don't speak it, the Japanese? Well, neither do I, but the answer to your question is "yes", either way

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!

And I love bold looks, so navy pinstripe was the way to go. This new shirt is, I think, going to become a favourite of mine, so I wanted to use it too. 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.

The weather decided to get warm all of a sudden, making the fit I was going to do unwearable. So I decided to enlist Fred's help again, since he brought good luck last time.

Despite the celebrity DTO nature of the fit, it actually fits my style to a tee and is probably the best example of my warm-weather fits.
