This is great. Perfect fit and the colors work great together.

What do atheists wear when we go to church?

Like the suit.  And I also do the light tie/light shirt thing sometimes for a bit of a kink.  But I think that requires a big contrast in the PS to lift it up - something completely different in colour and tone - not that one.  Also, the shoes make a difference, what you got?

Well, I wore a jacket to lunch downtown. What do muslims, hindus, or worshippers of Oden wear?

Black Park Aves. I don't wear shoes inside the house, and it would be a hassle to take off my shoes, set up the camera, then put the shoes back on again. I figured the tan on white would be a challenge, but I had hoped that the blue wool ps would be enough to, as you say, "lift" it.

 

(also, still trying to figure out the proper white balance with the new lighting)

 

EDIT: And to respond to stitchy's forthcoming post: it's an old suit (HF) and I've gotten a lot of wear out of it. It's going to be retired in April or so as the suit I will be having made for my wedding will be very similar in color and fabric. (The visit to the tailor is in April, not the wedding)

sorry clags, i dont think the PS is working there. the suit maybe could use some suppression, but its a very nice suit.

I think maybe you should have been more bold.  Going doubly-light on the shirt and tie, and with a grey suit, I think demands a splash of something. Maybe the tan shoes, or burgundy, and a PS from within that family too.  Then you'd be rocking.  Or you could go the other way and drop the colours altogether with a white or cream PS, different kind of statement and probably more difficult to pull off.

 

Why would an atheist go to church at all?  Maybe I don't want to know.

I had never been to a church in Korea and a friend invited me.

I would like to extend an open invitation to you, to visit a mosque in Oman.  I will take you.  You don't have to wear a suit, or even a tie, but it's fine either way.  The no-shoes thing in mind, I'm guessing you're already wondering why you don't own more loafers/lazyboys etc.  Me too.

I defiantly see that the fit of the sport coat Isn't ideal. I have gone a size up and it just gives me the "sack" appearance. I think I may begin purchasing regulars instead of short. Also, I continue to lose weight so I think that will help the fit (waist suppression and chest). I took out the shoulder pads last night and the divots are gone. I'm going to post pictures of the entire outfit once again when the sleeves are lengthened and the pants tailored. Thank You

A few Koreans have commented on the fact that I bother to untie my laces before taking off my shoes. Generally they just pull them off and shove them in...laces staying tied the entire time.

Thanks I am glad you like the patterns! That jacket is now being put through some serious alterations.

To me Oman will always be the land of the Unhappy Hour (tm). When I went there I was told it was illegal to serve alcohol between 2 and 5.

I think we wear our Christopher Hitchens memorial pins and a smile.
