Zegna Milano suit, RLBL shirt w/ bad collars, and TF grey(?) or silver(?) tie w/ a bad knot. My apologies. First time trying grey colour tie. Happy Tuesday everybody!

Wow! Very Mastroianni! I love it! Who made the suit?

Even if it was gray, it would be too light for my taste.

I think I just got silver poising. I have a red bruise around my neck.

Welcome back and hope to see some more entries on your blog - its got a great tone and has been very helpful. 

Thanks for the kind comments! The tie is a grenadine weave from The Knottery.

Very nice. Was this a while ago, or is London having an unusually cold summer? smile.gif

Second look is much, much better... if the suit was the charcoal grey it appears to be in the photo. I'm guessing from your prior posts that it's actually navy, in which case I'm less keen, unless it's an extremely dark navy (verging on black), in which case it's good.

 

Are you folding silk squares? It looks like it. Don't. Use linen/cotton if you want to fold, or puff if it's silk. Some silk blends may (may!) be able to take a fold; most cannot.

Colours & patterns are good; in fact, I'd say really good. Which makes the jacket fit disappointing (loose+low collar) by comparison, as this could have been a great overall look. Trouser fit is also a bit off, but less noticeably so.

I like. A lot. But then, I'm fairly fond of yellowy ties. Trousers are the a light enough shade of grey to take the yellow on top. If you can be bothered, it's probably getting a slight increase in the taper below the trouser knee. Not much more; just a bit extra.

I find the orange a bit too vivid for the rest of the look. A more burnt shade and it would rock. Nice new blazer.

Cotton suits are one of those items I hate wearing myself, but can love the look on others. This looks great.

I think it must have been a while ago; southern England's actually had a pretty warm & sunny summer this year. Long may it last!

Talking of sunny summer weather:

I really need to get round to hemming these jeans; I've been meaning to for years but my ability to procrastinate is impressive... so they're still just rolled up.

Great summer look, HF. Nice use of a seersucker odd jacket, and impressive fit - is it one of your E&R's?

Cool jacket and cool collar. However, with this serious roping and fishmouth notch of the jacket, the button down shirt doesn't seem to fit the aesthetic. I feel like the strong features of the jacket needs an equally strong cutaway shirt to pair.
post #58200 of 78717

I kinda see your point. The button down collar is in fact meant to relax the look a little - it all looked too serious with a cutaway collar. The roping is a bit strong indeed, but the only reason for choosing it was to flatter my physique... so if I want to make things look less imposing with this jacket I have to resort to things like the button down collar, knit ties, etc.
