Really? Interesting... Perhaps it's just a matter of personal taste, but for me there is nothing to like about this outfit (no offence to the OP):
- the yellow tie with baby whales
- the contrast of the windowpane is too harsh
- I don't like the tie knot, prefer a simple FIH
- micro-checks look lame and old to me
- the contrasting of primary colours (yellow, blue, red) makes the whole look 'cheap' to me.
So, once again, i mean no offence to the OP, I'm just surprised how far apart people's preferences on this forum turn out to be.
I agree on the tie, not my taste (hence using similar colours in bad taste last week!), and the DFIH is maybe a tad irregular but I think that's nit-picking. I like the windowpane myself, and the micro-check too. But not together: I think a micro-check looks lovely with something solid and light, like a beige linen summer suit or a light grey sports jacket.
Still, like you said, a matter of taste. This thread would be terribly dull if everyone turned up with a muted Drake's shantung, light blue spread collar, white PS, AE Strands and navy two piece from Suit Supply. Vive la différence, as they probably say in some girly clothing shops.
12 degrees, still waitin´ for summer :(
Sure. Jacket - Cantarelli for Werner Scheerer
Flannels - suit supply
Shirt - Paul Rosen Heritage
Tie - Gissop for Möller, Vintage
Loafer - Sebago, Vintage
PS - Altea
Looking good. What's the weight on their tropical wool?
Agree; that's really tidy and the trousers are the best-fitting so far, definitely. Just one tiny thing: the PS and tie are in the same colour family, and the jacket and tie both quite similar textures. Perfection might require a touch of contrast somewhere - maybe switch the PS to something far from the tie colour, e.g. burgundy or burnt orange.
But really, it's a small thing. Looking great, DC.
No idea, but they feel pretty lightweight. These are the trousers: http://epauletnewyork.com/collections/trousers-chinos/products/slim-walt-trouser-green-merino-wool
The green color is amazing in real life btw, it's unlike any other I've seen before, and has tiny flecks of orange, red, brown and blue in it that can only be seen from closeup.
