Thank you - these are (yet) another pair of Cleverley captoes. As you note the shape is less extreme than the Anthony Cleverleys. This is closer to what I would get in bespoke

Another solid combo! You've become one of my favourite contributors. However I'm not 100% sold on that tie.

Thank you very much - appreciate it

The tie is particular - I probably wear it twice a year. I am not generally a fan of pink ties (shirts on the other hand I am very partial to), but there are a couple of things which I think makes it work: 1) It is a 'dirty' pink, which doesn't stand out as much as you think; 2) Its slubbiness, which is pretty extreme; 3) The apparently random pattern of flowers. Altogether it is a pretty unique tie. Great for sunny, cheerful days

The summery feel of both the shantung and the Fresco suit fabric works well together, I don't think the color is wrong combined with the rest either. It's just that the rough texture and that particular motif doesn't suit my personal taste.

R.O.T. - I love the look, love the tie. It's really tricky to infuse a summery vibe into an outfit (and tie) without the colors becoming too splashy and the overall look losing its business appropriateness. But this works well.

Lookin' good, ROT - that a nailhead? Where's the fabric from?

Thank you. It is a Smith's birdseye.

Thank you - it is a pretty hefty old Charvet. Quite atypical for Charvet, which may be why I like it so much. A very serious tie...

R-O-T Excellent as usual. Epecially the suit fabric and the tie!
