I am confused by the decor of the office you sometimes wander around.

It can be confusing to the uninitiated.

Did you happen to get the number of the carny who dropped off your coffee table?

Deets on the slippers? I'm a fly fisherman and would love them for around the house.

I really have to get a better camera, the iPhone sucks in low light. And light is rapidly becoming a rare commodity here up north...

You may have been able to achieve a better look with just the PS perhaps.

Yeah, I completely understand where you're coming from and agree with you totally. It's tough trying to even compete with some of the outfits here as I really get very little, if any opportunity to dress up smartly. So when I try to pair my ties with outfits I struggle! I really should have not worn a tie but I wanted to try it out as I haven't worn that one yet.

Cheers Nick

Tiny knot is fashionable, but looks odd with a spread collar.  French collar/small knot/thin tie has better proportions, if that's your thing...

Since someone was complaining about the lack of 'fit-pics', I tried to combine the crap robo-pose with one in which you can actually see the fabrics etc. Shoe pic is really for those on the 'Cool Shoes, Paraphenalia and Desiderata" thread who spotted these in my size on ebay...

 

Spoiler: shoe and fabric details (Click to show)

 

 

 

Deets

Suit: a date uncertain vintage suit, made in West Germany from Italian fabric (Reda Regal, which is really beautiful and the grey is rather more blue-grey IRL, and the reason I bought the suit) for a minor local UK department store, that I had altered (wrinkles on trousers are merely the result of me having to walk backwards quickly in time for the shot, sleeve length is the English style (i.e. approximately the same as the shirt sleeve length) - but I may change them further;

CT Black Label shirt;

Carouzos tie and vintage tiebar (thanks, Dave Davenport!);

C&J for PRL dark brown suede monks (+boring socks).

No PS - I am actually wearing squares less and less these days.

Was the jacket length one of the alterations?

Long gorge, low pockets, looks like it was shortened, right?

That's what I'm seeing, too.
