What is this board used for?

 Can you ask the people you bought it from?

Today's suit is back in rotation - don't worry, you'll see it more often now.

You're looking particularly well today, boychik - good on you!

Shirt is CT Black Label - which I know should probably be a slightly more casual model, but the only other shirts I had that were ironed this morning were either even less casual or the wrong colour entirely...

What a great tie!
Does Stollery's, corner of Yonge and Bloor, still sell Aquascutum?

thank you, O. interesting idea. i like the fuzzy on fuzzy, but next time i wear the jacket i will go with some worsted, just cuz youre a good dude. smile.gif

First attempt at 4 patterns. 

Suit has a windowpane (see 2nd and 3rd photos)

 Cool tie! I may wear one of mine tomorrow night at a women's college basketball game.

I like teh fuzzy too. But I think sometimes we go too overboard with the matte, fuzzy, texture-y pieces because they're so much more interesting than smooth ones. I know I do. I've realized texture contrast is almost as important as color contrast and I need to choose clothes that work with the whole fit.

Jacket too short and looks all wrong with the bottom button fastened. Otherwise a decent combination of items.

Comfortably one of the nicest colour combinations you've worn; very nicely done indeed. I think this combination would also play even better with cords instead of flannel trousers.

I really like the tie colours and the shirt is fine with it to me. At least in the robopose-ish photo (which I appreciate isn't at an ideal angle for commenting on fit), the jacket seems a little tight at the button, while being a fraction too lean across the front of the chest, causing th. It's not obvious in the sitting photo, so it's really not a dealbreaker, and in any case don't think much can be done in the chest, but perhaps if the jacket was let out about half an inch at the waist, it might settle a little better. It would be a workaround rather than a fix, admittedly.

 

If it's more taupe IRL, then that's a tricky colour for most people to wear but actually I think your complexion & hair colour will work well with it. Lucky you! (I look shockingly dreadful in that sort of olive/brown colour!)

Thank you. I'll probably find an opportunity to wear it later this week or at the weekend. It's not heavily mottled; just a little natural colour variegation that - in conjunction with the thicker fabric - adds a little more laid-back character. Not quite like your (IIRC) Boglioli blue turtleneck but much more towards that end of the spectrum than today's much slicker jumper.

Very nice, I think the jacket and pants work well together.

for sure. but where i have difficulty, is that when you do texture contrast, if you go too far, then it looks really disparate. i find it harder right now with textures than colors, to hit that sweet spot of enough contrast to play well off of each other, but not too much that its like why are you wearing those things together?

it could also be that i "only" have 3-4 gray pants, not 10. i dont even have 10 pants total, more like 8. with more items (pants or SCs), you can get various shades in various textures within the same color. blues/grays/greens/olives/browns.... but when you are working with less pieces, i think its better to start with getting good color contrast in your wardrobe, and then moving to texture contrast as you add more pieces past the foundation you have built.

just my opinion on the matter.
