In Spoo years, you've been on an extended sabbatical based on posting frequency.

This is correct. (you have not posted a pic in a few months, IIRC).

...and we're all the better for it, I'm sure. Had you seen my solid, bright red silk square in the navy blazer pocket on Tuesday, you might have stroked. Well, maybe not YOU but I'm sure someone would have disapproved.

I felt the bold splash of color was "environmentally appropriate" and went for it along with a Sartori tie of inexplicable red/navy/gold design.

I changed into a solid navy twill tie after seeing the pics. I was trying to pick up the brown from the shoes up north, but I didnt love how it came out. Did I make the right move?

Thanks...Incotex chinolinos. A little baggier than I prefer, but getting up to 102 degrees today, so I don't really want anything too tight today.

In Spoo's universe this might be CBD

Pants were off-white, flat front, and linen. Shoes and belt were medium brown suede.

100 plus degrees calls for seersucker. I think I should take these pants up just a hair to prevent the ugly puddling evident in the first picture. Shirtsleeves are too short.





post #5068 of 78722
^ definitely a seersucker day. Tapering the pants below the knee would help a lot too, Lufty. I wish I looked good in hats like you. Also, I think it would have been better if the shoes were pure white, not offwhite.
post #5069 of 78722
Thanks. I was thinking the shoes would be better if they were sand, but hindsight is 20/20. No more tapering of anything I own. I am done with taper. If anything, I am starting to undo what I have previously tapered. I also though about cuffing these trou, but I'd get a 1" cuff, at best, so I am not convinced it's worth it.

lufty, whats the dilly on the last pic, planning on tweeting that to someone?

Spoopokeher, I think with those pants, the top is too somber/businesslike. The jacket looks worsted wool, I would suggest a linen/cotton/fresco jacket, ideally in a slightly lighter shade. Also, the tie, if you are going to wear one in this outfit, this is where you break out the linen/cotton/raw silk ties. And the shirt could also be better/different.
