Stitchy I was completely kidding!! I agree with you 100%.... I should have posted my sarcasm meter (8) (it's a scale of 0-10 right?). The PS should "match" but not "match"... it's a mutually exclusive enigma, inside a riddle, wrapped in a mystery. wow.gif

I was trying to be elliptically humorous... my tone was not well conveyed. But having read the whole post I do truly agree. Sometimes it does just look better if it "matches" for real.

That a square needs to match but not match is a false premise. It needs to coordinate.

You are kidding me right? To me he looks like he is wearing his own label. It's good to be able to make RTW in your exact size.

I always thought you wanted to have the secondary color of the PS to be near, but not the same, the primary color of the tie, and for the primary color of the PS to simply not clash with everything else. Or I guess it could be flipped. Regardless, anything outside of white linen scares me.

preface, sorry to use you as a sounding board, but you verbalized something i have not been quite able to that has been on my mind for a while.
this sums up my issue with PSs, at least the way they are preached here, by in large. it seems the idea is to not really have your PS "match" what you are wearing, but that it still "match" what you are wearing. if there are any duplicate colors it is too "deliberate."
well guess what, pretty much everyone here is "deliberate" about what they wear, very much so as a matter of fact. i mean hell, we come here every day to talk about the deliberate choices we make with our clothing. to try and pretend that ones clothing decisions were anything but deliberate is just tomfoolery (i love that word).
additionally, i generally find that its enough to wear a shirt and tie that are not the same color as each other or the jacket, but still "match." i find when you throw in a PS that is yet another color/pattern, it more often than not just becomes too broad of a landscape, and makes the whole thing less coherent than it would have been without the PS. however, when you have a PS that has an element that draws on another piece of the puzzle, i think it all pulls together much more pleasantly to the eye.
now, maybe i have to be fired from SF for saying that, but thats how i see it. ya'll can hate the matchy match all you want, but sometimes, shit has to match to make sense to the eye. at least most eyes. and while some may say that next level eyes can appreciate all the lack of matching, i think sometimes thats just a bunch of hooey, and people trying to sound/look fancy, when in fact its just dumb.

Hey Stitches. Your argument makes a couple valid points where I can agree with you. First and foremost, this being SF, majority of photos posted are inherently deliberate. You also raised a valid argument about our hysteria over matchiness, that sometimes matchiness just works.

But I cannot describe in words why the following picture has a PS which to my eye is more coherent than spoo's, despite using a similar concept. The smaller motifs within the PS closely match his jacket, while the ground does not. Therefore the PS is in concept similar to the spoo picture, but the matchiness of the motif doesn't detract from the look. Or maybe it's because this guy is such a Big Timer. nod[1].gif

This is a great look. The checks are shear gorgeousity. I'd prefer the lower quarters to be more closed though.

I laughed a little as I wondered what you were holding the book for. It reminded me of a travelling bible salesman... and your lean on the umbrella sends the message that you know bartitsu and I'm due for massive beatings for saying that.
