P., a silk cream square would have really elevated this. Right now, it is too binary. Not a disaster by any stretch, but the potential is there for greatness and it was just barely missed.

Thanks, I had a feeling you would hate the white on white. I have actually begun to think about cream linen for the future to break that "binary-ness" especially considering all of my white shirts.

Cream linen sounds like a strange beast. Since we are so used to seeing crisp, white linen, it seems likely to come across as dirty or aged. Silk, my friend. Silk.

Thanks. Pants by Salvatore Ambrosi in a charcoal twill.

Uggh. Shouldn't have mentioned the charcoal.

I think binary was the point. Let's face it, foo, you just don't like binary, whcih is fine, but some of us do like it from time to time.

That said, with a fuzzy suit AND a fuzzy tie, I would have reached for a silk square.

No, I don't like it. I don't even like perfectly binary when it comes to black tie. That's why I like cream silk in that application more than white linen. Going all-out binary always strikes me as conspicuously contrived.

But yet, I understand most authorities say a white square is always correct with a white shirt.

Very nice, PB. Love that thick fuzzy flannel.

Also, love the forward pleats.

If it was a standard navy blazer color I would agree, but the jacket is a bit brighter blue so, in this case charcoal works.

No photos. Just believe me. smile.gif

I am normally hateful of multi-point folded linen like you have here, but the rest of your execution is good enough to compensate. smile.gif

Pocketsquareguy, that is a fantastic look. It's inspired me to go with something similar for tomorrow (going to pair it with mid-gray flannels from Howard Yount).

It is actually. She liked the fabric in the closet and bought me a tie that she thought would look good with it. Alas, I had to spend money, but she shelled out a few for a drakes cashmere herself. What a lady!

P.S. Sleeves are a little long, I know.
