I agree with you, insofar as I myself would wear this, and that it's good to know as an historical precedent, but not obsessively follow.

Mike clarified it - the Italian side of me is wont to choose brown in almost every situation. I have black shoes that I wear for the occasional times when I feel a whimsy of conservativeness.

Apparently we don't get the hint when in other locations. Then again, Texans are not good at it not being obvious that we're Texan.

I like the idea of this thread since it will contrast some of the more creative clothing combinations in the other threads, in particular, http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=160731. This is a great opportunity for new people (like me) to learn more about the variations that encompass this "dress code".

I hope the uploading problems are ironed out soon.

Looks good to me though I tend not to wear silvery ties like that to the office. I do sometimes but not much.

That tie is incredibly difficult to photograph. It's actually brown and light blue herringbone, not silver.

Really? Why's that?

I'm wearing this to a wedding tomorrow.

spread collars don't register as CBD IMO.

Is no one going to notice that I followed my own pattern-balancing advice?

They have a formal/wedding connotation to me.

It's the house winter-weight hopsack. The tie is also Rubinacci. The shirt is obviously Matuozzo, and the square is a brand-new Charvet I picked up after work today.
