Awesome tie Stitch. My hurts though from looking at the tie and SC together - patters too similar in scale for me.

Don't mind the monochrome setup, I use that every once in a while too.

I like the bottom half so much and hate the top half so much. I just dont know if that SC is really wearable.

Your love is all i need. inlove.gif

Actually I think it's a common phenomenon; if you don't post that often, people don't comment. Maybe because it's easier to judge a fit if you have a coherent image of the poster.

I am bewildered by this response. It shows maturity, something I know doesn't exist here. The cognitive dissonance is overwhelming. smile.gif As for the picture posted, it was too dark for me to get a sense of the details, so I refrained from comment.

Cavaliere MTM suit
Belisario camicie MTM shirt
Notch tie

Back to work after a three-day weekend, and facing rain in the afternoon. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Suit - BB MTM
Shirt - PRL
Tie - Burberry
Cufflinks - BB
Shoes - To Boot Adam Derrick
Raincoat & scarf - Burberry
Hat - Weatherproof










The first thought which comes to mind with the tie is "retina-searing." biggrin.gif

I don't care for that type of shirt, but I accept that others do, so taking that as given, this seems like a fairly good use of it. Except for the hank. It stands out in saturation and sheen, and relates to nothing else you have on.

I like the monochrome, Stitchy. Keep on keepin' on.

Even if we accept the notch lapel on the DB (which is a lot to accept), the lapel width is far too skimpy. The tie also leans too far toward spring/summer for the jacket fabric.

SC: Kiton full cashmere
Shirt: Finamore
Tie: Vanda 7fold unlined
Trous: E Zegna
Belt: RLPL

Glasses: Oliver Peoples

Ian, almost everything about this is indefensible, yet it comes together with a louche effect which somehow allows you to pull it off. fistbump.gif

stitch... I don't know if that particular pose, with your fists at your sides is working for you. You look rather stiff.

Try this one instead.

You're finally getting a handle on how to wear it, and now you want to sell it? Color me confused...

thanks, guys. i knew this fit would elicit different reactions. certainly its not for everyone, and the scale issue is something that will bother some. appreciate the feedback, and the fact that you all enjoyed at least one segment of the fit.

shugz - great fit.

thanks, man. i know its very contrarian, but i tend enjoy this SC more with only blacks, grays and whites. monochrome. i know its not a fran fave. frown.gif
i figured as much. PERV!
thanks, mimo. i will be careful for that. lol.
hey now. saturday is a holy day. you must have meant sunday.

sidebar - i also find myself using any colorful striped shirts much less. almost exclusively in a casual look.

Is this your profile description on adultfriendfinder?

Claggers, open quarters refers to the lower front of your jacket. See how, in particular with today's pic, your jacket fronts overlap almost to the hem? This makes the jacket look kinda boxy and square. If you have open quarters, which I guess can be manipulated by a tailor taking a slice out of your side seems, the jacket will open slightly below the button to make a tall narrow A-line from your jacket front edges. Be careful not to go to far and get the turkey triangle, with your tie, shirt and belt buckle peeking out from beneath your jacket button.

I like the high buttoning point of some of your jackets and have complimented yor 'hard threes' in the past too. It's easier for taller people to pull these off, shorties end up looking too squat and need the illusion of height given by longer lapels and lower buttoning points, but if I can rest my pint pot on the top of their heads confortably then no amount of tailoring gimmicks is gonna help them.

Thanks for the advice, really appreciate it. I'm still experimenting with what looks good on me and what doesn't. I feel that a DB with a peak lapel might be a bit too much for a guy my age, especially for going to class. I've been eying a navy wool/linen DB with peak lapels though, so I might just give that a try when spring comes around.

 

What kind of tie would you recommend for this kind of weather/fabric? It was very sunny today, but also very close to freezing.
