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!
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.
Today: trying out a new (ebay bargain) Aquascutum suit (we won't be saying any more of these now they've collapsed). It needs half an inch off the sleeves (and the trouser length - although you can't see that here). The colour is much more olive/brown IRL. Tie is Marinelli for Drumohr.
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.

Jacket: Emidio Tucci (unlined; a Christmas gift. Needs some alterations, but I very much enjoy the slightly loose fit).
Tie, hank: Drake's
Trousers: MTM Holland & Sherry Viceroy woollen flannel
thx. gdl suggested that I try these trousers with a blue jacket, and I got this one for Christmas, which works well (other blue jackets I have don't work as well, IMO; must be the texture)
As self-criticism, I believe a slightly lighter tie would have worked better, but I wasn't satisfied with any of the ones I have...
