This picture definitely represents an idea of success to most - me included! Should have gone with braces, though ("suspenders"), and in answer to your previous question, I'd say a waiscoat alone is always wrong, unless you're a waiter, or indeed a tailor - with your jacket hanging nearby. The matching trews definitely take away the waiter look, but even if you're really in the mood for novelty, I'd still have gone with a jacket - maybe a cream DJ/smoking jacket, and complete the "in-your-face" but with a bit of dilution for that tartan. Anyway, 10/10 for bravery - there's always something to be said for being yourself.
Haha....dictionary definition of "literally" is definitely going to change in the next few years; but I'm in the reactionaries' camp right next to you, sir! That tartan might have looked like mass murder, but I doubt that any blood was shed!
Mr Pingson, you are a shining light. My attachment to a three-piece is obvious, but this is splendid. All I'd say is, pocket square aside (a dandification anyway; matter of mood), perhaps you are selling this fine suit short with the suede shoes? It might be a heavier, country-style fabric, but still, I think your excellent Tricker's half brogues might have been a more fitting companion. I'm nit-picking though - great look.
This must be the "tell-it-like-it-is" for which the public has been agitating - harsh but not wrong!
