That DB doens't look tweed to me, looks flannel. It's nice. I'd have worn a quieter tie.

Not keen on the collar or flower - otherwise looks good.

Not sure if tweed DB is CBD...
It's certainly business apropriate - and the tweed is subtle enough for most environments even if it is probably more mildly conservative rather than CBD. I like it.

Thanks. I'd describe the colour as more wine than purple (the close up is truer than the full length shot, but it's not a true burgundy).

Not a fan of the tie. I pretty much don't like self-striped anything. I'm sure there is an exception somewhere but at present I can't think of one.

Fair enough

The square is a simple map print of London.

The tie is a wool/silk blend with a more pronounced textural contrast beetween the fuzzyness of the wool and the silk - It probably won't make you like it any more.

I like the idea of that actually. Can you take a pic of the whole thing?

The way it's displayed now, I thought it was some tribal print.

I'll post one this afternoon.

Finally a day without important meetings! I'm so not CBD today - and I can't even count the number of ways I'm breaking rules and SF consensus (forgive me father Manton) - but I got used to stopping by here so I will place this NCBD day in spoiler tags à la Holdfast.

Not sure what the bigger sin is - navy pants or the grey jacket. I'll go with the navy pants because I'm wearing a grey jacket today.

I was going to say the same thing, but I didn't know the term - self stripe - good to know.

The outfit is probably CLD (L = leisure) more than CBD, but perhaps fits within the broad definition of CBD as has been established in this thread.

I'd say LBD since I am actually at work today.

Grey solid jacket, crazy plaid shirt, spread button-down collar, no tie with the sport coat, a pocket square without a tie, argyle socks and frankenshoes. I think I covered a lot of no-no's here But you make a good point that I could definitely have added navy trousers in the mix

Great jacket indeed. So great that I don't mind the shirt, belt, socks and shoes.
