I was in music school too, so I can usually tell the type and cut 'em some slack. Trust me.. these folks didn't just get done practicing their etudes!

Sorry for the shitty pics.  I haven't yet reached the point where I'm self-absorbed enough to get a tripod/other means of taking good pictures.  Soon enough I'm sure.

Suit: Zegna Napoli Couture

Shirt: Tyrwhitt

Tie: Zegna

PS: Talbott

Shoes: Florsheim Imperial

 

 

This was my first time ever wearing a pocket square, and the one - and only - pocket square I own (thanks Spoo!).  I tried. REALLY TRIED not to "match too close", but every other tie I could come up with was either ridiculously boring (blue), or just plain ridiculous (red/purple/pink).  I tried.  I have more pocket squares en route soon, so I'll give it another shot eventually.

Alfred Sargent. They are 3 years old or so, and were made for Thin Red Line, a store no longer selling AS shoes. I am not sure what last they are on, or what the current AS equivalent would be.

Since I can't buy them, will them to me then?

My father gave it to me after hearing me complain about not being able to find something similar for under $500. It has no make-tag, but it's pretty damn old.

I forgot all about the thin red line. I wonder why they stopped stocking AS shoes? Seemed to me that they had quite a good thing going on there.

I think there was an issue with pricing, etc. From what I remember, many of us received those shoes at a substantial discount.

Ahh yes. There was a sale on and I think AS were none too pleased when they were revealed as the maker.

That's right. Too bad... that was my first English-made/high quality dress shoe. smile.gif

Women at least make an effort but I feel sorry for them when they're dragging around some droopy pantsed dude who's idea of looking nice is putting on jeans, a North Face fleece and NOT wearing his baseball cap.

I've made a game of this, particularly in airports.... more fun in international airports such as Hong Kong. Try to pick out nationalities of two or more people together (families are even better because you get the added fun of generational influence) based on clothing. Having your iPod on will keep you from cheating (hearing them speak). Invariably, Americans are the most poorly dressed in these situations... nothing like a morbidly obese Mom and Dad in sweatpants toting along their soon to be diabetes afflicted, Croc-wearing brood of little snots!


Where I live, most people try to "dress up," in some way, shape, or form, for things like operas and symphony performances.  The old guys put on ill-fitting suits, the young guys put on every designer label that's supposed to make you cool (everything from suits to jeans), and only a handful of guys look stylish.  The young guys tend to do it better, even when wearing jeans, because they seem to be on top of style trends and whatnot.  And the ladies always look better than the guys.

 

Just my observations.

P.s. For those asking me about adding pocketsquares. I just ordered some. However, I would love your input on what "basics" to get. I ordered a white linen and navy pindot.
Have a good day gentlemen.

 


White linen squares with colored edges are always good choices; also, I have found that my collection of silk squares, in various solid colors, is pretty versatile.

Nice tie. Those are woven flowers?

Thank you. Correct. The flowers are woven.
