Thanks. The consensus seems clear on the high buttoning point of (most of) my suits... I am curious whether anyone shares my feeling that it has an advantage when you often go tie-less?

I'd worn the suit to wedding & reception then out the previous night and woke up and wore it to church & brunch, so by the time this picture was taken, it had wrinkled a fair bit. Thought the outfit worked well and matched my GF.

Clothes are made to be worn. Looks good.

really like that suit color, the white shirt is perfect since the tie and shoes add enough oomph. I normally would not like those shoes but I thik they really work in this outfit.

Thanks, guys. I think you either love or hate the museum calf. I have grown to not like the stylized stitching on this model, but not enough to get rid of them.

Took the pic without realizing the collar was popped out, but I am cool with it The unlined raw silk pantas are where it's at for summer.

I never find out about the new merchandise until AFTER the feeding frenzy. Thanks for rubbing it in, ndw.

I think part of it was a low camera angle. This look any better better? BTW - trou look stupid because they've slipped down from my waist - making my crotch look dropped and my trou too long. I've since pulled them back up to proper old man height, and the legs look clean again.

What shoes are these? They look a lot like C&J Westbournes, but somehow much, much better (and expensive).

TITFD. Too many colors, patterns & textures. If you had a white shirt, solid or repp stripe burgundy tie [edit: or kept the tie as ed suggests], and lost the cardigan, this will work.

And luckily for you, I'm also a gentile.

I am going to disagree with lufty, this is actually pretty good. I don't like the pattern of the sportcoat or the pocket square, but all your items go pretty well together and use different shades of the same color well and your colors are not loud. In good light, I think this is a very good outfit that I would not wear. And the tie looks like a lovely wool.

Agreed. Light grey spring trous are currently with drycleaners, and I've worn tan already a bunch this week...

There are a few things that would make this outfit better for me. Either:

1. Lose the waist coat
2. Lose the tie
3. Put on a white shirt


Looks good otherwise. I really enjoy the bold sport coat.

You look happy wearing it. It's not gelling together for me, clothes-wise, but I can't argue with the effect it has on you.

I quite like these pale blue plaid jackets; seen a few around recently and am feeling a bit tempted.

Ditto; too high but more than that, too big.

I like this quite a bit. Good colour choices allow the patterns to play nicely together. I'm mentally pausing at the cardigan/waistcoat as the weather is really warm over here, so I've got out of the habit of seeing heavy layering, but it works. Our remarkably good weather continues. I wanted some more combinations for this jacket, as I don't really like wearing it with stone, white or beige trousers, despite doing so today. Plus, today's trousers annoy me slightly as they've shrunk a bit too much in length for my tastes. So I bought a pair of bright ocean blue and a pair of latte-coffee cotton trousers, which are now at the tailors getting finished. I think they'll work better than today's combo.
For those that are not fans of the tie, rest assured it only has one or two more wears left in it. The slip-stitch, if that's the right terminology for it, is coming loose on the narrow part of the blade, so I fear it's not much longer for this world. Shame, because I quite like the tie myself, for occasional use.
