As they say in Britain, today is "Day 6"...with a splash of sunshine. Click pic for sharper view.

I love your posts CP. I have no reason to dress as formally in my line of work and workplace, but I always wish I did after looking at your fits.

Sunshine with showers and a cooler day generally called for flannel at midsummer... what a summer...

 

 

Note the regrettable last minute choice to experiment with brown chelseas instead of my usual choice of black shoes with this suit. A mistake I won't repeat again. Needs to be black IMO.

Somebody please educate me. What is this lovely SC fabric called? Is it crowfoot? Diamond weave? What?

 

I believe this is called nailhead, though a close-up would help.

To me, I love this look, although I would have the pants hemmed about an inch or so

Possibly, even a square in the colour of the original loafers with some teal accents. In this case, the colours would work together for me, because the proportions of them in the outfit have been varied, to a more pleasing overall combination.

At first, I thought you were being sarcastic--all that about vision and my profession--but this is a very interesting point; one I would like, to discuss further with you (would it be thread-able?). I understand you feel, that the varying colours should sit in terms of mass area (IE: The dominant colour being the SC), and I, wholeheartedly, agree with you. But, then, maybe ianGP only has this set of colours in this order, and these colours work within themselves, I believe--order being not of dominant importance. smile.gif

Hay, if we find this interesting, maybe I should bring up my music-colour theory! biggrin.giftongue.gif

I don't like that effect either, which I why I don't really buy unlined ties (well, actually, I think I may have one or two, but the wider point stands). I theoretically understand the appeal, but it's totally not for me.

I have one and also a very thinly lined tie, and the OCD in me gets a bit tweaked by the phenomenon, but I love the feel and the way they knot. Not an everyday thing for me, but I like them sometimes.

No sarcasm intended! Internet prose is tricky to get right. Apologies if it came across wrongly. My point was that graphic design is surely at least partially applied visual perception; or rather, a case of reverse-engineering visual perception, so colour theory and the neurophys basis of visual processing are very relevant. I don't know how much formal colour theory and cognitive neuroscience is included in graphic design degrees, but I assume it can't be negligible. At any rate, even if it's not formally included, you're applying all those principles (maybe by another name/theory?) daily anyway.

 

I don't know if the wider topic is worthy of a full thread; I'm not sure I have much more to add, to be honest, but colour play is a really important part of visual imagery so I'm glad we got the opportunity to mention it in passing!

No, it is not a nailhead. gdl203 already answered this question earlier in the thread.

Agreed. And, there's no need to apologise, but thank you! smile.gif

I guess it would be too nerdy/specific for most.
