I posted it a while back during the month I was there but I haven't found time to continue shoemaking at this point. It's very time-consuming and labour intensive. I do work with leather as a weekend job, though.

SPRING CHALLENGE ENTRY (actually worn yesterday)


And what I'm actually wearing today:

I like the spring look, but I'm not feeling today's.

Trying to get a little more wear out of the winter digs.

[SPOILER]

Panta raw silk tie is all


nice, but crying out for a PS to balance the zing of the tie.

Break time...


Deets:



Hmmmm... SF will probably tell me that the pattern in the tie and shirt are too close in scale... Maybe a sockless, knit tie alternate will improve my odds...

Alternate deets:
Have a great spring everyone!
Second look is much better. Tie... Scale...

Not bad, but i wanted to see what was so bad about the tie - it can't be worse than some of mine

Weak Sauce Fine see spoiler below
Well, as you can imagine I don't wear the tie that often and the best pic I could find was this one where I think it works well as a pop of colour in an otherwise monochromatic context.

Spring, my ass! Can we do this challenge again a little bit later in the season?
It was cold, rainy, and raw when I took these pics yesterday, and I felt pretty silly in my silk/linen SC.

Thanks, MOK. You made a similar comment yesterday with regard to my more CBD fit, which I meant to comment on. While I would agree that my fit yesterday would have benefitted - I only very rarely wear a PS as they are not considered CBD in my locale.

With today's outfit I think the coat and zing of the tie were distracting enough (I never wear a PS with a patterened coat anyway). Would you suggest plain white?

I'm with you, this transitional time is confusing to me. Here in the SW we get it all, snow, rain wind big time, and sun, usually all in the same day! Going to DC next week and wondering what to wear. Beautiful jacket by the way, really like the tie, and how you worked it all together.

I'm of the school where a white PS only really works with a white based shirt. For me the tie stands out a lot and I think a PS would soften the impact. Maybe a brown based paisley or another pattern with a touch of orange in it.

Worn in London some times ago, at an interview at the Uni of Arts.
