Your top half looks like it came out of a black and white movie. Interesting, but not really my cup of tea.

I was wondering what kind of sweater that was. I guess I just couldn't see enough of it for it to affect my opinion.

Just arrived yesterday. Late. I thought I was going to have to cut the FedEx man...

Thank you. The tie is an Alan Flusser which I believe to have been made by Drakes (or was it Drake's at that time?).

SB that tie is fantastic and that suit looks AWFULLY familiar.....

You know I was saying I was mildly perturbed that the colour palette of my outfit yesterday irrevocably steered me to non-black shoes? Yours is another example of the kind of look (moderately formal suit, traditionally styled with a similar shirt & tie) where I can conceptually grasp why brown is chosen, but it still screams out "black shoes, black shoes!" to me. If the suit had been flannel and the tie a large-scale paisley or something like that, then I can see brown shoes working better, especially if in something like suede. I'd probably still lean towards black suede though... :)

I like every single element, and it nearly works overall, but for me, either the belt needs to be replaced by something non-green or the tie needs a little pattern to it (being dark navy helps, but isn't quite enough) to pull the eye decidedly towards the neck & face rather than to the sides and waist.

Sorry I did not see your question yesterday. Pants are just cotton Incotex, not moleskine.

 

Notepad trousers would certainly be an innovation.

 

(God, have I really become one of those people who correct spelling on the internet...?! :( )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Side question: Did anyone get anything in the Drakes sale? I picked up a few squares but the few ties I was potentially interested in were sold out by the time I had a chance to browse. Still, the squares will be useful.

 

Freezing today; subzero all day long. The thick cashmere cardigan was definitely needed, as was the DB overcoat/scarf/gloves not pictured. Not entirely happy with the jacket/trouser combination. The jacket is a small-scale black/white houndstooth and the trousers are a steely-grey/blue donegal and I think it works up close but the full-length pic tells a somewhat different story in terms of a colour/pattern mish-mashiness.
