More generally, I find tones of beige and brown to be the hardest colors to get "just right". A tint too light or a shade too dark, and the color just feels off. I also think that anything beige benefits from some surface interest, or else the cloth has a tendency to look flat and cheap.

Beige, khaki, and olive are classic colors for cotton jackets. I think you're off-base with the '90s association. I don't know how old you are, but when I lived through the '90s, I didn't see a lot of jackets like this.

What kind of surface interest do you want to see on a cotton jacket?

I like the herringbone SC alot, but I don't know if it patterns well with that shirt and tie, just seems rather busy. 

Your socks are awesome.

+1 on the "classic colours" comment.

Also, whilst we run the risk of all piling on to Ivar, I think that surface interest on a beige jacket would actually make it more 1990s in style, rather than less. The 1990s saw a lot of jackets by fashion houses like Armani, Byblos and others in mixed fibres (wool, silk, polyamide blends etc) with visible weaves as well as big shoulders and low gorges on the lapels.

Saying that AAS's fit is akin to 90's fashion is ridiculous. Jackets back, at least the variety i saw, were very structured, especially in the shoulders. Gorges were much lower as well. The shirt and pants? You have an argument there. Thank god he isn't wearing Sperry Topsiders, or the time/space contuum may have collapsed for some of you guys.

You're doing it wrong bro.

Jcrew denim jacket
Chambray steel button up
Brooks Brothers black silk tie with purple mini dots

Shades are Ray Ban,

Fell way short with the shirt collar. Everything else looks sharp.

Edit: Changed the first foto. The old one was out of focus, so I do this one after the work under day light. See details (Click to show)


















I really like this suit. Fabric looks real good. The fit on you is also good.

Yes, button suspenders would certainly be better.

However, at least (at the risk of committing #menswear sacrilege) it's not as egregious as the Armoury crowd, who commission bespoke trousers from Ambrosi and who then hold them up with clip-on suspenders...

Good fit on the suit DC, Ed gave you all the right advice there is to give, the only thing i would add is that I am not a big fan of your chili red shoes with most of your outfits. I'd like to see black cap toe oxfords, black plain derbys with a chiseled toe box or even black single monks.

At which ritz carlton do you work by the way? Berlin?

Regarding theories on name origions:

EmartNJ owns several E-Mart franchises in and around trenton.

Timotune is tommy tune's sawn-off twin brother and Don Cologne really has a soft spot for 4711.
