I have seen many complement you on your excellent fits, but what impresses me more is that you mix a variety of different brands into a distinct style. I was particularly impressed with your single pleated Gieves navy suit the other day, a brand that I have always considered somewhat old fashioned and not that well cut, but which looked magnificent and which I would not have expected you to own.
Could please give some insight into your buying process and how you go about putting outfits together. I would find it very interesting. Do you just go with your gut or is it more analytical?

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate them.

For purchasing, I used to just go with whatever I felt was most appealing - and usually that meant the most flamboyant things that I saw. I then took an analysis of my wardrobe, and once I took a step back and saw that EVERYTHING was level 10 on the slider - jackets, shirts, ties, squares, etc., I knew I had to scale it back. I sold a lot of my SC's and started purchasing more suits, tried to limit my patterns to 3 quiet ones, and looked very carefully at what was considered a "success" in this thread as well as CBD. Once I had pared down most of my wardrobe to a place where I could grab-n-go - meaning literally grab blind and have it work, then I began to focus on fit. I sold most of my ill fitting pieces (most, Vox, save it) even though I liked the pattern or color. Replaced them all with better fitting basics. I may like the funky suits and shirts, but have been trying to hold myself back from them as I realized that too much is too much in relation to my wardrobe as a whole.

tldr, the past year or so I have been focusing on suits that can be broken up into separates in mostly sedate colors with small patterns, white or blue solid shirts, and I carry over the old Spoo flamboyance to only neckwear and squares.

As far as choosing what to wear, I usually start with only one piece in mind - most often times a tie - and build off that. Today, I wanted to wear this suit. After that I knew it was a black shoe and white shirt, so the only decision making was the tie and square, which needed to be relatively sedate - mostly because of my mood and the intensity of the stripe in the suit. Tomorrow, I feel like green and have a green Panta tie in mind, so lets see where that goes.

Damn, this is a long, confusing ass post, sorry about that. Its been a looooong 24 hours in my house and Im rambling, sorry. I tried to give you an honest answer for a nice honest question.

Why? I wrote all of it up in one go in February.

I'll post up part two shortly, which as you know, is an undefined time.
