I think this is, technically, a good combo, but it's just really boring (for me), sorry! You really need some colour in that PS; it's too washed out (with the fit) and matchy-matchy.

Well, FWIW the tie is washed out in the pic. It is actually silver with navy dots, not white.

I couldn't help but notice the similarities between Jimmy Savile's outfit in this photo and Spoo/sugarbutch/EFV's renditions.

Jimmy Savile was the UK equivalent of Dick Clark and he has just been posthumously revealed to be a lifetime sexual predator.

Does anyone own glasses like that to complete the look?!

People are either going to love this or hate it; if you're epileptic I apologize for the seizure:

I am hearing that Rupert the Bear has just contacted his litigation lawyer.lookaround.gif

 

Sure, I hate it, but you've got some nuts and that I like.  Although judging by the size of the trousers, you're keeping them in a jar in your desk drawer for now...

 

Anyway, who gives a shit what strangers on the 'net think?  Thanks for sharing something different; it's much more stimulating than assimilation.

I have two issues with this, albeit petty ones: firstly, the tie and the PS, by coincidence, seem very close in shade, and at first glance they appear to match.  Maybe the colours are less matching in real life. I cannot believe the Spoo would ever commit the sin of "matchy matchy", even if in a hurry.  

 

But the second is the shirt.  The jacket is soft and textured, the trousers are throwaway chinos, and the shoes informal suede.  But the shirt, partly with the stripe but mainly with that spread collar, seems way too formal for the outfit.  It's stiff, City, business-y to me.  I think maybe either something softer/longer in the collar, or even a button-down, would have worked this constructed-casual thing a bit more consistently.  And a simple square check or even just an oxford weave, instead of the stripe.

 

I wish I could see the perfume that's mentioned.  That would probably fix it. tinfoil.gif
