Ditch the square and maybe swap in lace-ups for monks and I think this is UCBD.

^ Just my opinion, but your spread collars shirts look better than the BD with your lapels & gorge height.

- I agree & is an area that I have discussed with PJ, but as this is a MTM program there is only so much that can be done in the short term. Though with both Ethan & I persisting..

I keep my suit jacket pockets sewn shut so that I'm not tempted to carry anything in them. I carry a supper thin credit/business card wallet in my breast pocket and my keys and cell phone and other essentials in my briefcase.

2-3 red ties in about as many days? What changed the aversion?

Needed contrast in textures so wore a satin tie. Very difficult to capture the colors. By the way, I love the burgundy tie. What is it?

They're not red.

Not all that CBD, and not what I wore today, but I know Manton loves a striped shirt with white ground ...





(That's actually the very shirt with white ground I was talking about earlier in the thread -- forgot I took a pic that day.)

Doc, if i walked thru your background I'd be scared of an axe murderer

I'll speak to the groundskeeper about getting some leaves on the trees.

(my own critique is that the button stance is a little too high, lapels too slim, leather wrist strap is extraneous, and I'm sure someone is going to take offense at the lack of belt)[/spoiler]

Nice look.

I can't quite read what the pattern on the suit is. Looks sort of like a basketweave...
