Count me in on the Trading Places love; awesome movie.

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.

Thanks, Citan. I doubt we have the same suit. It's a Vestimenta about eight years old. I like it, but it's a lightweight flannel that I wouldn't necessarily buy today.

Oh, well, that's easy then. It is flannel. smile.gif

There were some wonderful choices there, but the pricing, even on sale, is steep. It seems like Drakes on sale in the States is a lot less expensive. Roughly speaking, swap out the £ for $.

OK, you get a bye, then! smile.gif

 

(it really does look worsted to me in the pic, I swear!)

That's always been the rule of thumb over here, unfortunately; whatever you guys pay in dollars, we tend to pay the same number in sterling. laugh.gif

Are you guys joking? The fit looks horrible to me. I genuinely would like to know what I am missing on this one, not trying to make trouble.

What doesn't look good? Its a tasteful suit, shirt, tie, square, and shoes, put together well, and everything fits very well.

i cant really see the fit, and i dont generally look for fit, even in full pics, which this isnt. simply because its so hard to correctly represent in a single still shot (unless you are vox or victor). so, knowing shugz, i assume the fit is fine, and the color combination is spectacular.

I like the tie. Been thinking about a grey tie myself.
