Pocket square is neither aesthetically pleasing or fitting for the suit and tie. The suit looks fantastic and well-fitted. :)
Sounds unusually serious from you! :)
FWIW, nothing I posted was said with any deliberate "side"; purely my off-the-cuff thoughts, to take or leave as you prefer, in line with all the other occasional comments I post to others in this thread. I wouldn't take it particularly seriously.
Dig the haircut, HF.
And I'm pretty happy with the last picture. I really, really, REALLY struggle in figuring out what to do with houndstooth, so I'm glad I stumbled into something like looks decent.
Yeah, your shirt/tie combo really worked with it IMO. I think it's because the red in the tie is more of a chestnutty/maroony/russet type of red, giving it an earthy hue that echoes the jacket's earth tones. The more direct picking-up of the reddish overcheck is more coincidental; the key aspect is keeping an earthy feel to the overall look.
Thanks re: the haircut! I'm not convinced yet, but I'm going to give it a while to get used to it. I don't pay much attention to hair - and certainly can't be bothered with anything that takes more than 10 seconds combing after towel-drying - so just kept the same simple style (vaguely combed back all over but not bothering to slick it down) for years & years. Thing is, I started it when I had both more & thicker hair. Over the years it increasingly exaggerated the deteriorating state of both! Ah well, we all age... Anyway, I decided to go for a closer & neater cut all over, to disguise that a bit. Weirdly, it's now similar to the haircut I had as a kid & teen (minus the very clear side-parting I had back then), and going full-circle to that again is strange. I'll give it a couple of weeks and see whether I'm OK with that. A deeply-buried, and very lazy, part of me just wants to cut it super-short all over but i know for certain I'd look terrible with that kind of buzzcut; too rugged for how I dress & my life. Neat, tapered and fairly short is probably the better compromise...
Did you ever see the Mr Sam photoshop of me without hair? Not even going to risk looking anything near that. Made me look like a grumpy Telly Savalas... ;)
EDIT: found it, here we go
No way am I risking a buzzcut after seeing that! lol! :)
