I think I now understand the point in this thread; restraint.
It doesn't matter what the dress code is where you work, the premise of this thread is to wear nice stuff in which the details do not jump out or elicit overt attention. Fits should be rooted in nice silhouettes and good colour coordination, without a particular item standing out.
I think this achieves that.
I liked the fit, and I also found it pretty restrained. Nonetheless, having read the thread from OP onward, it was initially about Manton's personal aesthetic. Which is actually what made it interesting, because, really, anyone can rationalize anything. "Oh, well, everyone in my office wears clown shoes, so green monkstraps with tassels are super CBD for my environment." I exaggerate, but we saw such justifications upthread.
I wear a thai silk tie sometimes, it never really gets any negative reactions. My girlfriend did point out an inconsistancy in the weave knowing how picky I am, but she didn't know it was supposed to be there.
