I don't know what's wrong, I have re-upped it twice and it won't show up.

The picture was working fine, the first time you had it up.

All in, I like it. The silk PS bugs me a bit - I tend to wear them only with tweedy sportcoats.

The cashmere tie is beautiful - I really need to buy some before next winter.

Imageshack is really fucking around tonight. I'm getting problems with my album photos too. Give it time; by tomorrow I bet it's working fine. It happens occasionally. Good thread idea Manton. Hope it takes off. BTW, is this really exclusively American CBD, or are you simply using that as a proxy terminology for more classical clothing combinations rather than experimental/fashion-forward colour/pattern combinations? If it's just a proxy terminology, then I'd submit my outfit from today as a pictorial lamb to your textual slaughter. But if it really is US CBD only, then it wouldn't count. It's conservative, and would fly in any British conservative professional's office, but not a similar US workplace I don't think.

Let's make it seven continent CBD.

In that pic, my suit and shirt are American (English cloth on the suit, Italian on the shirt), the tie is Italian (Scottish cloth I would guess), the square is English, socks are French, and shoes Hungarian. So no need to limit.

OK then, I'll play, and submit to (and try to positively engage with) whatever critique you offer. Have at it: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
(hopefully the pic shows up; Imageshack is causing problems for me too tonight, I've now switched it to imgur) For context - I would wear this, and feel I was appropriately dressed, for an appointment with a conservative professional (senior doctor, accountant, banker, lawyer, etc.). I wouldn't wear it for an interview or anything like that. So I guess I would view it as conservative business dress for day-to-day wearing between professional equals, if that makes sense. PS. I've used the SPOILER code for now. If it passes reasonable muster, I'll uncode the spoiler, as being worthy of the thread. I'll let Manton decide that.

ooooh I like this thread - too bad I missed it today. I was wearing a perfectly boring grey suit and neat Marinella. Even black captoes.

I'll try to post from time to time

Not your best, Manton. The square and tie seem too disparate.

Yay!

Aren't you an apostle of disparate squares?

Anyway, you are wrong, it works. The border of the paisleys picks up the tie very neatly.

I am not fully sure about the tie with that suit. The color works well with mid gray flannel, the dark, not as much.

Cool thread. Will you be improving or adjusting your shaving technique?

This thread is the anti-Spoo.

Nice to have you back Manton.

That sounds like it requires a call to action if ever I've heard one. Definitely interested in watching and learning. Thanks for doing this.
