I'm not a huge fan of bowties either, but I disagree with you on the fit. It looks awesome.

I usually do button one up, but today was pretty warm.

Yeah, I need to get some cream wool trousers.

I think this is largely the result of a poor press job. The suit is NOS Brooks. The guy I got it from had a terrible press job done before I got it. Gotta work on giving the lapels their life back!

A few recent shots ... two with the same coat even!

Thanks guys. Gnatty - be careful. I am slowly working the sans ps look into the subconscious of the groupthink@gregaz - all killer looks in my book.

Killer, as usual.

Concurred. Personally I would never wear button down shirts, nor bow ties outside of a tux, but I'm happy to see them as elements of your personal style. Life would be boring if we all dressed the same. Outside of that you invariably have great outfits, slim tailoring on jacket and trousers, nice combinations - all these pics are very good.

I may have been on my own "ignore" list because I forgot I had posted this. I just remembered and came back to find the expected "YOU'RE WRONG!" "Yeah, man, +1" stuff. I suppose this is why I now spend most of my time looking at CBD WAYWRN. I have never read anything about where it is appropriate to wear linen, certainly not in any book. It is simply common sense. Linen is warm weather wear. It isn't really even spring wear in NYC, which is where I believe NYR is wearing it, since this time of year in NYC can often still be sub-65 degrees. By the same token, when it become warm enough to wear linen in the city, no one in his right mind would wear jeans (assuming one has the option not to). Re: the scarf - if it is a summer scarf, mea culpa. It looks like a warm lambswool or cashmere scarf from Press or the Andover Shop and sometimes breaking the rules isn't cool, it's just stupid. I really like Rob's contributions to this forum but sometimes I just think his outfits are off. This falls into that bucket, despite what the SF Group Think police have to say.

I suspect that they're too wide through the thigh for how narrow they are at the cuff, but that's just an uneducated guess. You might want to post this in the Fit Critique thread.
