Unless you want some liquid refreshment.

I should warn you that I intend to shamelessly (mis?)appropriate that phrase.

Anyway:

The medallion on my Charvet green pocket square:


The rest of the images below are just thumbnails, of course -- click for full pic.

This next item I just bought today. It's an Arnys Cravate d'Atelier, which is a tie handmade in the old style with seven folds, no lining, and rolled edges. I think it's very cool and has as much luxuriously ostentatious handwork as a Carlo Franco. It's also about the same price, 107 euro. So Chuck, watch out! Maybe Arnie Franco is coming to git ya!

The silk feels gorgeous. There's a richness to the colors and the weave that is wonderful to behold. I have no idea who makes it as Arnys doesn't really make anything, although they have some good subcontractors. The very nice salesperson told me to hush when I told him it was a good price in Paris for a seven-fold tie:







And my H&K Paris scarf, cashmere and silk, as lauded by the Flusser:



Yes, it was a bit ungainly trying to hang it for the picture.

Was Charvet paying homage to the Sun King?

RJMAN and all,

Who in the right frame of mind would wear forest green shoes?

Dude, those shoes completely rock. I say that as a guy who is just not into shoes. I wear decent ones and take care of them, but they really don't do much for me. Yet even I am jealous of those shoes.

Distinctive and subtle. It doesn't get cooler than that.

It would depend on the execution. But most likely, no, I wouldn't like lime green shoes.

It would take a shoe person to describe why RJMan's come together, I just know that they look right. No other way to say it.

One of the pieces of advice you'll learn on this forum (and you may already know this) is that what matters in clothes is fit. Some cheap, good fitting OTR number can look better than an $5,000 suit. But the best bespoke suits, like the best bespoke shoes, can transcend and approach the sublime. These shoes do this for me.

Suprisingly, green/olive is an extremely versatile shoe color and fits with just about anything (espeically casual slacks). You gotta buy a pair to believe.
