The problem with your posts is that Timo's pants are not slim by any standard.

So does Luftiver, Tibor, Old dog and several other members. but like Stugotes mentioned you were off the mark with your remarks.. because Timo's pants are not slim fit...

 

 

and you can say whatever you want on a public forum... also know that you might not get the response you expect.

If you look at the pictures of Timotune you can see the muscles of the legs, thighs, quite visible under his pants. This is the result of too tight pants (and too short).  I say this because I think it and not to offend anyone.

Here you don't see muscles. Theese are good full trousers, not at all baggy...

Can you see difference between this and the Timotune pics?

It' a great difference!

I'm not here to quarrel just to explain...

becuase Timo's pants are not full doesn't mean that they are tight.

I don't know if I should feel humbled for being used as an example; but actually, while I like fuller trousers because I'm rotund myself, I don't think this cut (which is particularly full, even for a full trouser) would work on a skinny guy like timotune. When going the MTM route I even ask for a narrower leg. I don't think timotune's pants are "slim", either. He said the wind is messing the drape in his pic.

Carl, I think this would have been better with a light blue shirt.
Great to see you posting pictures smile.gif

Thank you, Derek. It was a lucky day at Barney's, as I snatched today's shoes for about 50% off.

Again on yesterdays pants:

They are no way slim-fit. It was just really windy. So the drape is bad and the very light fabric is pushed agains my legs due to the wind.
Looking at the picture I also do not see a pair of good fitting pants.
In normal conditions they are nice, however (check pic a few pages back).
Another issue is the belt I am wearing with them. I found that a belt does often not work with fuller cut pants. I ordered braces today, so lets see how this will turn out.

I can predict how it will turn out: you won't wear a belt with dress trousers ever again. tounge.gif

Ignore the silly criticism - your fits have become consistently excellent of late and you have certainly taken seriously the criticism you used to get before, which was more justifiied.

Yes, on both counts. Their cashmere feels really solid, doesn't it?
I only have lambswool frown.gif which I love smile.gif.

 

The Ballantyne I wore yesterday is "only" lambswool. I actually greatly prefer it to cashmere in some regards, especially where the fabric is thin. But the Lockie cashmere I got really does feel more durable/solid than many makers. Hopefully it holds up well over time (I think it will).

This is very busy. Having said that I do think it will work - as a deliberately very busy/intense look - if it's a suit rather than a jacket. If paired with a regular pair of solid trousers, it will look disproportionately too busy in the top half compared to the bottom, and I suspect that pairing it with differently patterned trousers will simply look kaleidoscopic. But as a suit, it may just work. It's quite different from your usual style however (closer to something I occasionally try - operative word is try! - to pull off with that busy strongly-checked DB suit I have).

... Engineered Garments bow tie...

 

Is the suit a worsted or a flannel? It looks to have some nice texture?

 

I do agree with whoever upthread mentioned that the bow tie looks a bit too wide for you. If it were floppy, I think this could still work, but it's just a bit too rigid/neat for that here. I have the same problem with many bow tie makers, as I think you've noticed in some of my pics before.

I like the suit/shirt/tie combination. What I would say is that those elements all stand out boldly against each other (in a harmonious way) whereas - as you yourself mentioned - the handkerchief is a more tonal/blended element. Either missing it out altogether, or opting for an equally contrasting colour would would work better I think. It could be matching (ie white linen as a default option), or a complementary (eg something with some yellow and/or browns in it, maybe?). Obviously the latter would be the harder choice, as finding exactly the right complementary colours in the right intensity would be a matter of trial & error and is also dependent on what is actually available in your collection.
