I agree, but in my opinion, when pairing different colours they should not clash.

I'd say
Different well paired colours > monochromous colours > poorly paired colours

Not saying the colours you chose match poorly but they do clash to MY eye.

For a classic style - maybe this variant too bold. But for casual summer style - think it is appropriate to push the different shades of brown in bold combinations. smile.gif

I have mentioned Victor's collars in the past, but I think it was lost in translation. They need to have a wider spread and longer points to creep under the jacket lapels.

I love how the Tahoe sneaks into one picture in all of Victor's posts.

 

Great outfit, though!

Thanks for the thumbs, people - surprising because I have to say I wasn't expecting much with what amounts to my standard kind of work get-up. Someone asked about the boots - they are Loake 1880 Burfords. I would say they are solid and well-made - but handsome rather than elegant - and they are certainly slightly wider than average. They've acquired the look they have largely because, over two years, I have polished using a tan creme all over first and then a red creme on the toe caps only. I think if I was going to buy a pair again, I would prefer a version with the rubber soles simply because it's in the wetter and cooler times of the year that I want to wear these. However the Bedales (which are similar but have a rubber sole) are on an even wider last.

I agree, but I really like the curve that Victor gets to his collars. I don't know how he does this but I have been experimenting with bending my metal collar stays into a curve that goes round and down then flares out, which helps to give the collar a more pleasing shape than a simple straight line. However, in order the have the points still tuck under the jacket lapels, the collars have to be longer, and many of mine just aren't long enough to tuck under and have this pleasing curve so you have to chose one or the other (or have an entire new wardrobe of shirts made...).

You get this curve by not wearing collar stays. I never do anymore. When the ends go under the collar it holds the arc into place rather than having the points bend inwards. Look at mafoofan, manton, spoopoker, gdl and so on.

It is a hard thing to achieve with certain body types and such. I don't understand the physics behind it, but it seems that Spoo wears a lot of borrelli and achieves this, however whenever I wore a borrelli shirt the collar looked wimpy. I have only been able to achieve it through bespoke shirts.

I think this is the key point and I don't think Victor will have any problem in this regard...

 

And yes, I think, after my experiments with collar stays, I am gradually coming to the same conclusion as you.

Must be a different kind of collar on Spoo's and yours? Some Borrelli shirts I've seen have truly huge collars.

This pose and angle kinda reminds me of Mr. upr_crust's tounge.gif

I think this would have looked better with grey pants (in a shade darker than the coat's). The jacket is quite nice!

Thank you! I am. Coming to London for 3-4 days. Would you care to suggest something? Thank you!

Spasibo. Do vashego mne ne dorasti, boyus, no ot etogo esche priyatnee!

Taking a break from Paris for a few days and will visit London with my girlfriend. I was hoping some of the London members would recommend some places to see and cafes to visit that won't break my bank eating 3 meals a day for 4 days. All suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'd also be happy to meet someone for an afternoon cup of tea.

1. Love the jacket - weird lapels though; nice tie too.  Maybe not together?  White shirt, blue-ish tie might lift the whole thing maybe.  You don't need the tie and shoes to be brown; the shoes bring out the browns in the jacket enough to balance without the tie.

 

2. Your head is on upside down*

Navy plaid 'Saddlebreed' sport shirt, black/brown convertible belt, brown Bass shoes, and grey Palm Beach flat-front trousers with cuffs.

I didn't realize how dirty the teacher bathroom's mirror was until I uploaded this picture... ah well... Herringbone and dots! Colors aren't rendering correctly. Tie is navy, pocketsquare is purple with odd bits of navy and gold.
