Haha!  Get off the fence and say what you mean, why don't you?  crackup[1].gif

I wish I could get a better picture because it's worth it, but I'm rarely at home when there's enough light to take a picture outside, plus there's a foot of snow on the ground right now anyway... so for now, you just get this. I love it and it's perfect for this weather.



That is a seriously FU suit, but it seems to work for you. My only criticism is that you've tied the bow tie too wide for your face - were the bow tie smaller, it would greatly reduce the resemblance to something that Colonel Sanders would wear.

Otherwise, congrats on having the big brass ones to pull it off!

Thanks guys, the bow tie has already been retied smaller following viewing of the pictures!

 The bow tie is kinda drooping on each side which makes it look funny.

Mine had a regular collar though; if yours is a button-down I suppose that helps matching a bit. FWIW, your combination is better than anything I ever came up with for mine.

thanks, HF. yes, i too am was very surprised at how difficult this shirt had proved to co-ordinate. i still really like it, but wish it was more versatile. also, the collar is not button-down on mine either.

Towards the end, I just used mine with pale linen or cotton trousers in the summer, with a couple of buttons undone, and generally without a jacket.

I'm not sure I like so many "different but not too different" shades of brown, in stitches. The pants + shoes combo would specially benefit from a larger tonal separation IMO. Hard to judge from that pic, though.

yeah, it doesnt seem to work with SC, edmorel even warned me of that right when i got it. sweater is ok, or in this case, a quilted coat. but outside of that, casual with casual pants i think is a good way to go.

even that pic is not great, the sun on the pants makes them seem lighter, they are more of a brownish olive. but anyways, yes, they are fairly close in color.

anywho, there are my only suede dress shoes. you wanna fund me a nice pair of chocolate suede carminas? id like double monks, simpson last please.

thanks!

I would compare this to Groundhog and Shadow Day, you are saying Spring is on the way -- and I love it!  I do think a Do-Do Brown Suede w/ those socks would be the Shit...

Thank you. I need better cords, I reckon.
