Yes, socks with clocks or small pattern are very much classic / CBD. Black socks though are a monstrosity in most circumstances IMO

I really like this. Who made the suit?

Thank you, coolpapa: Caruso (MTM); fabric is Fox Brothers & Co.

Thanks for the other comments as well—interesting. Socks are navy, btw, in case there was any doubt.

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.

IMO.

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 believe he said this was a caruso suit.

Do you think you could safely dress up shatung ties?

Why not darker ones for the winter? I have been eyeing this one and I am not sure if I want to pull the trigger...

They're great for someone else, I just don't like the fabric myself. Sorta like button-down collars. I like how they look on other people, but I can't see myself wearing them.

wasn't there a whole thread about vox's purchase of drakes? he isn't known for dressing down in my experience.

I wear raw silk and linen ties year round, particularly like the texture of the ties with tweeds. I wore one today

Nice jacket Ed. What did you pair this with? Mid grey flannels?

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. smile.gif
