Thanks man...yes, thrifted and vintage. Made in the '60s, I think.

timo, i love your style, you know that, and the colors in the top half are great, but im not feeling the gray on blue so good, not because i dont like gray on blue, i love it. just these you have seem to be really close in color, but not a suit.

unless the picture is not really getting the colors right, or my screen brightness is off, or all the drugs are messing my vision. any or all of those are certainly possible.

^^ Tie knot seems just a touch bit small considering the lapels of the jacket are so wide.  The color combo is great though!

Those are some serious lapels there, Axel!

Thanks, I agree about the tie. Tie is Panta and while the quality is great, it is by far my most challenging to tie. Something about the unlined lightness and the very smooth silk.

Axelman Nice work! Seen quite a few outfits from you lately that really suits my taste.

Timotune As mentioned by many already, great improvement the past weeks! However todays outfit is the one I like the least of those.

Orgetorix I must agree with the positive feedback regarding that gray suit of yours. Several other nice contributions from you as of late too.

I had the same tie and would resort to a half Windsor + Prince Albert frankenknot.

Still didn't look quite right.

Printed silks really do need a tighter not due to the smoothness of the silk, otherwise they just get loose throughout the day. Most "un-lined" ties do still have a light lining at the knot area for a bit of shape and still manage to remain very lightweight as the silk is usually lighter and less stiff. Whether Ed's do or not I don't know. I've always found printed silk a lot easier to tie and more dimple friendly once I started cinching the knot in a bit more.

Deets on the shoes/boots?

Thanks. Boots are Allen Edmonds. Don't remember the model name but they may have been a special makeup for the store I bought them at.

Agree, the last few fits he's posted are very good.

First post here! I wore this to a med school interview on Friday. Nothing really fancy or expensive. Tailored fit navy suit, tailored fit spread collar white shirt, light blue/ white/ navy patterned tie, brown shoes, brown belt. Looked pretty good IMO. The suit doesn't fit perfectly yet (pant legs probably should be about 3/16" longer, and suit sleeves should be ~3/16" shorter, but it was close enough.

This was the tie: http://www.thetiebar.com/order_page.asp?pn=13526&orderPageReturn=%2FcategoryPages%2FAll_Ties%2Easp&pg=0&categoryIds=31,22,60,18&optionValueIds=1

 

Let me know what you guys think! I didn't want to be too bold, nor too matchy-matchy.
