Btw, check your closet - there seems to be little critters playing with your sleeve buttons at night... patch[1].gif

Exactly this. Did you disapprove, Doc?

In absolute, 3-piece suits can perfectly be CBD. In my own environment, with my clients and colleagues, it would be way too dandy and not be seen as a regular "business uniform." Then again, same thing could be said for DB suits.

I hadn't meant to imply a value judgment. In general, I prefer when tie and square share a similar level of brightness/exuberance. (Not to go all Vox-ian on you.) But I find the sober square/brighter tie pairing preferable to what we more commonly see here, where the square -- the most dandiacal element -- is made into the focal point.

But in this case, reversed and the tie became the focal point? Im not sure if I would call either of the two elements dandiacal... but maybe help me understand better by telling me what square you would have chose to balance the tie. Besides white..

I was speaking in generalities, rather than of your particular pairing. Personally, I don't like it when a colorful silk square is the brightest/most eye-grabbing element in an ensemble. I end up looking at the square rather than the outfit as a whole. But that look is unfortunately common on the forum, where guys opting for the seriousness of SF's preferred sober ties often fail to see the visual contradiction of wearing a poofy explosion of color on their chest.

Colorful silk squares strike me as an inherently dandified item. I wear them because I like them, but I think they don't need any extra attention drawn to them. To work, they need to be a seamless part of the whole. As such, I like the square to be similar in value and tone to the tie, or to otherwise integrate with elements of the outfit.

Lately, I see the logic in this much more than I used to, and try and apply it more often. I turn more towards my less electric squares than I used to.

Welcome to the dark side, Sheepy.

Looks good - that toe is a bit dissonant IMO - too round, not very elegant. Are your feet on the small/wide side?

^ They are AE Park Avenues. For reasons you state, I almost never wear them.
