A Madras tie should we worn with a lighter colour suit. French navy, light Gray or light brown will be more appropriate

Suit is 70% wool / 30% mohair:

Thanks Stitchy. Cloth is from the Smith Mohair book. Can't recommend it highly enough.

You are clearly demented, Sir.  A jacket and no tie is casual.  A tie and no jacket is a busboy.  Which I think is an American term.  In the UK, we take the dirty plates home with us out of shame.

 

 

 

Butch: re. laces, they're only on show because I pulled up my trousers for the "rock your socks" thread pic - normally it's rather more discreet!  I don't have an especially high instep; my oxfords close fine, maybe just these shoes.  Anyway, noted!  Looking very fine today, by the way.

 

As are Clag, Axel, Eliod.  "Fuckin' eh", as I believe they say in your country.

 

Dingus: you do not need an excuse or an office job to dress well.  Do it for yourself.

The first sentence of yours which I quote, and the fact that you used the "f-word" (which I refuse to quote) in the later sentences of your posting prompt me to dismiss your opinion with impatience.

A jacket and no tie is sloppy and unfinished, not casual at all. The look was virtually unknown in the UK before the 1990s, and during my formative years with respect to style (the late 1950s - the "Ivy League" period in the USA) - was considered the height, or rather the depth, of bad taste.
A tie with a long-sleeved shirt and belted, flat-fronted cotton trousers without turn-ups is perfectly good summer wear for when a suit is not necessary. The reluctance of many posters on this forum to shed the jacket in very warm weather (and on your side of the Atlantic the summers are much hotter than in these islands) I find incomprehensible.

As someone who rolls his sleeves up and wears a tie without a jacket, I agree with you (with the caveat that the tie and shoes must be of obvious and excellent quality and the shirt perfectly tailored; otherwise you will indeed look like a cellphone salesman if you are under 30 or a carsaleman if over)

But the Mimo will be the Mimo. Everything he says is in good sport.

In light of recent discussions I offer you both shirt, tie and jacket (and indeed also trousers, sorry pB). Fire away, gentlemen....

I rather like the exuberant "hanky".

An attractive rig, here, SB!
