A little casual:
SC: "Napoli Di Nordstrom" cashmere
Belt: AE Cordovan
Shoes: Carmina Cordovan
Watch: GO Sports Evo
It wilts downs, which is an effect I like. I'd agree it would be too wide if it had the body to stay looking like that throughout the day. It doesn't; within a half-hour or so it scrunches up and droops down in a floppy way. It ends up looking a bit narrower than the average bow tie as a result of that, if anything. I don't like the very rigid bow ties that are more common (whether narrow or wide); I like bow ties to be droopy. :)
Awesome outfit, but so stark and severe that is positively screams for some color relief, especially being winter and all.
A puff navy silk or cashmere ps takes this to the next level.
My first choice, would be the most subtle;:a navy edged linen with a careless TV fold so that at least two navy edges are displayed. Something stark but unexpected.
Burgundy would work as well for the ps but be much more expected [as would any shade of red], but a darker shade of brown would not. Orange would be interesting but would destroy the subtlety of your outfit. If going this route, I would again use a burgundy edged linen in a TV fold and not a puff of some softer material; too cliche.
If you meeting with a woman the next time you wear this, I would soften your composition with a chocolate brown tie of the same weave and material, dark brown half brogue captoe oxfords, and the navy edged linen ps above while keeping everything else the same.
If you detest pocket squares, then wear a burgundy or even lilac butcher stripe for your lady friends and keep everything else the same.
Again, well done and a beautiful composition.
Sweet!! Congratulations on your anniversary!
Did you go to Tio Pepe? It has been one of my favorite restaurants in your town for as long as I care to remember. 'love their Zarzuela and sponge cake roll with crème anglaise and pinenuts, not to mention their chef's special lobster which must be ordered off the menu.
I understand your idea for your outfit, and it works almost too well. Well done!
My first selfbought suit... (tiger of sweden)
What I def. need are 2 belts brown/black fitting the shoes... this one is just bad...
sry for the bad quality
Since i'm big (1,86) and skinny i've a lot of problems finding suits that fit me... I know this one is not perfect... but better than anything I've tried so far and i fitted it a little bit at p&c tailor too!
I know you don't like lloyd shoes (and I know about their terrible repuation) but they were one of the few pairs that actually fit my feet...
The pair of brown shoes I also my first pair of nailed shoes which are a little bit more casual...
What can I improve for the future?
thx a lot...
