It seemed too washed out with a white shirt since the tie is fairly light.

IRL the shirt is more greyish blue and less powder blue so that helps. I messed with the saturation and contrast a bit but couldn't get the shirt color to quite the right shade in the photo.

It's just that dark suit, PoW tie, white hank + white shirt is such a standard combo...and to me it's not improved by substituting a blue shirt. Not criticizing necessarily, just wondering what C's thinking was.

Assuming that I am the UC in question (Urban Composition having not posted in many a day), the cufflinks are sterling silver and enamel, and were bought at Barney's several years ago, and then independently confirmed (by a sales rep) to be made by Deakin & Francis.

Thanks for the comment.

The Carnina Ruby is pretty red...seated pic is taken without a flash.

Rob is that tie from your new business? If so it is amazing

Also trousers are flannel? From your full picture it looked like cotton khakis but your closeup looks like flannel.

agree completely.

 

I prefer this vanda square folded over puffed (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

but foo is right, too. thin flimsy silk doesn't look right folded

Brooks Bros. camelhair polo coat for the frigid weather outside.

Your trousers look really good here, some of the best you have posted IMO. Are they new?

I'm undecided with regards to my vanda squares as to which I prefer, but I applaud you for the counterexample.
