The issue is now resolved to everyone's satisfaction.

Butler I admire your trouser cuffs. I did not intend on nitpicking.

mentioned this in the b&r thread...i do like the suit and i particularly like the fabric.  however, i vote no to the shirt, tie and ps together, and the tie knot could also use a little form...in fact, i don't like the tie at all after seeing the close up photo (which suggests why you did pair that ps).

German?

 

Swinging?

 

Pathetic?

 

Well organized?

 

You like your handicap like you like your coffee?

Thanks again for all the feedback. A better collar pin is on the list, but you know, when I put on that shirt, I thought it was lame and insipid. With the pin, it's either better than the boring point collar, or interestingly terrible -- either of which is an improvement.

 

Here's today's rig, complete with the only way I can think of to wear a french blue shirt without looking like hell. Long day in linen, thus the wrinkles.

Lovin' the timepiece. The gold-plated sword batons and onion crown are desirable details. Vintage, or re-issue?

 

I'm a Sea-Gull aficionado myself. Tianjin's finest. Here's a modern classic I picked up at their Shanghai boutique a few months back:

Subsequently passed this one to my brother in an attempt to rid his wrist of a truly ghastly "calculator watch" he's been disgracing himself with for the past fifteen years. I might go back to the boutique today to pick up a replacement.

 

And here's my other Sea-Gull, this one sporting the Venus 174 chrono movement they acquired back in the 60s, with added in-house date/moonphase module:

Hey, rock the wrinkles. I'm just making a 100% well-intentioned grooming suggestion which a man with your obvious self-assurance can take or leave as you see fit. 
 
Besides, you may notice my very deliberate choice of wording: "stern", not "old". Direct sunlight makes everyone squint, but if you were walking around like that indoors all day, it might scare the children.
 
Trying to look younger than one's real age is lame. But looking good for one's age is the very essence of style.

I think your reaction is odder than my comment.

 

People are way too precious about stuff like this. It's just another med, people. Orders of magnitude safer than aspirin or paracetamol (go and look up the therapeutic-to-toxic ratios if you don't believe me.) Wears off after a few months. Just another weapon in the styling armamentarium of the modern male.

 

Besides, I would never recommend something I don't use myself. mwink[1].gif

Funny that you use the eyebrow-raising emoticon posting about botox. rimshot.gif

 

I'll be content to be wrinkled one day, but I wear linen pants now, so maybe that says something about me.

Had a forward fitting yesterday for the coat bellow (3 roll 2 in a donegal tweed that is not from Donegal). Requested a bit more of waist and just a tiny bit tighter skirt. Looking forward to another fitting scheduled for next saturday.
