Just because your sleeves have cuffs, does not mean you have to use them.

Are the shoes from Corthay?

CEP: I would like that more with some contrast. As is, the tie looks washed out. There's nothing really to draw the eye and... center the fit.

As I said, if you read my post, "I need to get the sleeves shortened, no idea why i was wearing them like that, just felt like it!", I was just playing around with a new jacket, I infact rolled them down when I went out as it felt weird

You look extremely smart with impeccable fit as usual. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
I really like it when you use a PS (not often enough i think (for a guy with your sartorial ability)). Just to finish it off you understand. shog[1].gif
Your tie could have more colour though. nod[1].gif

Second outfit also fits you well.
My main criticism is that I would change the shirt for a solid colour one, and I easily prefer the shirt in your first outfit because hmmm... too many stripes together and not enough difference in scale.
Then the milky pink tie that also makes a strange iffy little knot, I personally think you could carry off a tie that is a whole lot bolder and modern and shiny (silk) , or even more subdued with good texture, but with a bit more bulk so it makes a really good knot. Use up more 'real estate' in the tie knot area.
Pocket Square, I would probably stick to white cotton because of the pinstripes. rather than gingham?? (is it).
I realise you trying to do pattern on pattern on pattern. To me it seems all too much. satisfied.gif

Thank you for your comments. I believe that the pic doesn't do justice to the texture or color of the tie. It's, at least in my opinion, pretty nice but as you pointed out I find it difficult to make a beautiful knot with it. Your pocket square suggestion is totally right.

Proper or improper, I fold mine up and lay them flat in a drawer. Someone I know actually re-purposed a hanging CD/DVD file box for storing pocket squares - they hang, folded, and the box is clear plastic, so that he can see his entire collection at a glance.

For the truly anal, Kent Wang offers a pocket square stand: http://www.kentwang.com/accessories/pocket-square-rack.html

 

Spoo has one, and he's posted a couple pics with his rather extensive square collection on the rack. The effect is rather striking. I actually considered one myself, upon seeing Spoo's pic. But I quickly realized that I don't own nearly enough squares to fill the rack, and my closet space is at such a premium right now.

The shoes looks very nice too (especially the last), who is the maker?

Tie less and boring today. Half day of work and have a social engagement that is casual after so wanted something easy to switch out of. Enjoy your wednesday folks.
