I also know black shoes would have been a better choice, but I still struggle with what to wear with these.

Anyhow, FWIW...

dont dig that suit man. I have a versace pinstripe suit thats really similar but the pinstripes arent so wide. And the shoes are fucking awesome, but i think theyd work best with dark denim and a sportcoat. Who makes em?

Fare thee well, bold suit. May you land upon a gentleman who can pull off a wide/ thick enough tie to balance your lapels....

+1. i love the shoes but sadly for you spoo i think they are more for casual wear not suits. just my 2 cents. and deets please.

I am confident that Spoo: just did a little funny and provocative.biggrin.gif


And in that day actually was wearing another pair of shoes.

 

And this pair of shoes he wore for the photo - it was a joke and a little provocation lol8[1].gif fing02[1].gif   .  lol8[1].gif

Where did you get that jacket - love the patch pockets.

The suit is one with a history, found in the inventory of an old menswear shop in Sweden by a man who deals in vintage clothing and accessories. It's from the sixties and made here in Sweden, but I think the style is pretty timeless.

Thanks EFV - you got lucky with that find. Looks like it was made for you. I am going bespoke for my wedding suit and intend to copy that photo and take to the tailor to use as a guide for what I'm looking for.

I still wear a silver sharkskin jacket from the sixties I picked up in Afflecks Palace in Manchester (big used clothing warehouse) in 1985 for GBP15:00.

Let's hope your man Seb Larssen does a good job for the lads in red and white!!

I was just thinking that Spoo's suit would rock with a 4" wide gangsta tie.

After some months of just reading it's time to post pictures again. Great time currently, summer came back a bit, we (that is, my bicycle and me) are visiting clients, partners, and friends across the city to lunch with them or have coffee and cake together. I can take my work with me to a farm (where the pictures were made) or a coffee bar. It doesn't feel like work.

i'm glad i kept the shoes
i like the color... although i don't think the leather is a very high quality one
i am definitely going to save up for a nicer pair of shoes now
maybe even a nice pair of double monks

the tie ... it's a "handmade" grenadine tie (that's what it's called, right?)
i bought two of them in a little street shop while i was in korea earlier this year, one blue and one burgundy
there's no way i can tell anyone how to find the shop though.. i would have to retrace my steps to find it again
it's really a hole in the wall
somewhere in "Namdaemun" aka "Big Southern Gate" part of Seoul

the best part? each tie cost less than $15
if i get a chance to visit korea again, i am definitely going to stock up on some more

It's a really nice KNIT tie. Not a grenadine
