Good to see chorse around, and still looking very stylish. Really fun suit.

 

Re: Baverso's comment on Spoo looking too matchy; in one respect, yes he does. The reason you prefer Barbera's matchiness is because it's subtle & tonal rather than harsh and loud. Spoo's is the latter; it's a very in-your-face, very flashy - almost urban - matchiness. But here's the thing; he's clearly doing that deliberately, as the self-aware reference to The Joker highlights. Anyone still opting for a green & purple colour scheme, despite being consciously aware of the similar palette used by the larger-than-life Joker, is obviously not trying to create a harmonous, subtle, blended, textural and tonal look. It's consciously divisive & confrontational and even consciously low-brow. That will offend those who want clothes to look "classy", subtle or some other similar social indicator. The social cue Spoo is sending out is quite different, and I think he knows it here. Boiling it right down: you don't wear green & purple unless you rather enjoy it when someone mentions the Joker to you during the day. Whether you want that kind of attention governs whether you wear those colours.

 

The same is also true for wearing flashy outfits generally: you must be consciously aware of the specific messages you are sending out about yourself and welcome/enjoy them (or have some other ulterior motive in eliciting them). Otherwise, it's self-defeating and you'd be better off in something conventionally tasteful. I rather enjoy the drama of bold, flashy looks; they're often surprisingly powerful at disarming people precisely because of their instant polarising effect.

 

BTW, bonus points to Baverso for correctly spelling "bartitsu" rather than Conan-Doyle's corrupted "baritsu".

 

Talking of deliberately bold outfits:

More vintage/second and and more color! Jacket: Schlasberg before 1978, Turtle neck: new John Smedley

 

Holdfast: Orange with red stripes works. You can´t guess how many compliments I have got dressed in orange.

Oh, I like orange too. It's orange with red that I struggle with. They seem a little too close together while still being too far apart. I have worn an orange tie against a blue shirt & very dark brown jacket with a faint red check and liked the effect though, so I may take your advice and experiment further! :)

 

 

 

 

 

We got our first snow of winter overnight; woke up to find a light dusting on the lawn. Still some left by the time I got home, too. Anway, back to clothes:

OK, cause I saw the price, but didn't saw the HK first, so I thought they were $3,800 USD haha. happy.gif

Stitch, do you know off hand if the G&Gs or Carmina's from The Armoury come with shoe trees or do you order those separately?

they need to be ordered separately. i dont know of any retailer offers top tier shoes NIB with trees. they are always extra, ans rarely cheap.
