Bucks and seersucker is a classic combination. Perhaps not to your taste, but legit in terms of established standards, whatever that might mean!

This comment struck a chord with me. I have a couple of colleagues, one in particular, who are a bit like this - noticing clothes, commenting in a way that clearly betrays some knowledge of fit and combination... yet still wearing the same mundane, rather crappy outfits every day themselves.

Maybe they just picked different expensive hobbies.

So many "right click-save" actions from Friday - unbelievable!! Thanks for pulling your 'gold' out gents - serves as so much inspiration when I go clothes shopping again.... Although you make it very hard for me to take a copy of one of these posts to the tailor and say "I want one of these"...



Have a great weekend everyone....

I like the shirt/suit combo, and the tie, though not my taste, works quite well with it. I think a tie with more texture, or a subtle pattern would work better...the pocket square seems to bright to me, maybe better for a sports coat/ more casual fit, though I applaud your industrious use of spare cloth...mine usually goes the same way...or gets turned into bow-ties!

I too very much like the shirt/tie/suit combo and agree that if the tie had some texture, it would move from a "9" to a "10." The pocket square works depending upon the occasion. A little much for a 9-5 white collar office environment in the city, but short of that, it's great. The only thing I would suggest here is a different fold. I'd go with a more of a unstudied, degage look myself. The suit looks like it fits perfectly and I do like that cut. So I give this rig a 9.5. Well done!

Hehe. No, I didn't mind being overtaken by Harvey's movie (compliments to him!) at all, but I was unthrilled by the word gimmickry.

Could it be that our steady diet of A&S expats, Rubinacci, and Chan has rendered this look exotic - or is it that it's not as "Poolish" as my tailor leads me to believe? Perhaps you Brits can enlighten me.
- Clean and structured suits are still the mainstay of the Row. - Messy and structured suits are still the mainstay of the High Street. (there are more softly tailored items available in both places than there used to be, due to a wider diversity of sellers/shops, but structure is still dominant)

Reverse snobbery is a favourite pastime here. We all indulge it in different ways. (but you can only really be a reverse snob - as opposed to being just ignorant - if you actually know what you're snubbing, so that's why your friend can recognise that which he shuns.)

Caught unaware by a style blogger while waiting for a beer/man date yesterday.
