Also, would it kill you to put a dimple in that tie? smile.gif

I think this tie might also look good with earthier colors around it (think richer green or deeper grey tweed herringbones).

Sugarbutch, I love the silhouette on your suit jacket, very nice drape - is it bespoke?

Thanks for the feedback, sounds like the tie isn't a lost cause. The colors are fairly true in the pic, no sheen at all, very matte type finish.

Point well taken on the square. There is a slight overlap in color with the tie which led me to give it a shot. Next time I will go with something more reserved. I don't usually think of pairing an earthier color like a green or a brown with a white shirt but may give it a shot.

I agree on the dimple.

I agree on the dimple.

Off white or ecru would be better, likely. I think a very faint ice blue might work as well. In any event, I think I'd stay away from anything too close to the background of the tie, but that also echoes the matte finish (like earthier colors will).

Thank you. The suit is OTR by Oxxford.

Pants drape is not good, FWIW its was really windy.
Shoulder fit is not perfect, too... The problems of RTW.

I meant that statement more in terms of wearability. The semi-loud irregular stripe and lighter blue color don't look good to my eye when paired with the matching pair of pants, and also with my fair complexion/dark hair.  Would it fare better if the buttons were replaced with something more contrasting?

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.

 

Ha! You've noticed my injury and off-season-related weight gain! I'm a few pounds - well, more like 7lbs - over my racing weight right now. Once I have been back in training for a couple of months, it will fit as sleekly as you like, and it might even end up looking a bit loose...

Ouch, hope your injury recovers soon.

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.

I understand. I have a couple of heathered lambswool Lockie sweaters ('Astra' and 'Moorland'), and they're great. (Heathered is 'mélanged', right?) Yours is cashmere?

Yes, on both counts. Their cashmere feels really solid, doesn't it?

It looks fine, in a very bold way, but is not (from what I remember being) quite your usual style so suspect that the lighting/editing may be oversaturating the colours a bit. If they're genuinely as vivid as in the pic, I wonder whether a pale blue shirt might tone down the vivid blue of the tie just a fraction? Not with that (assuming it's navy) suit, though. Maybe with a dark-ish grey one instead? I also think it might be a very good tie to wear with a smart odd jacket outfit.

I forgive you all of these now that you tie your tie properly and don't seen to have all that shite on your wrists. Are you fastening your shirt cuffs too? If so, well done! Anyway most of your pics lately have been very good, See what a big difference a few tweaks makes to your outfits! I'm a fan of suitsupply too, I have a couple of suits from there and think they're about the best bang for your buck and fit me almost as well as they fit you.

That shade of blue ground seems more summa summa summatime. I think it would work well w/ a navy blazer or the right color tan suit.

Looks pretty good for OTR, timotune. Getting a perfect shoulder fit off the rack is an almost impossible task, unless you're built like a mannequin. Almost everyone has a dropped shoulder and a forward thrust clavicle to some degree. Depending on how much, no brands will fit 100% perfect...
