It is possible to look too carefully dressed, but a little artifice isn't a bad thing. Compare it with a nicely done tie dimple, which nobody complains about as looking too artificial. It's way better to take a little care when you're tying your tie than to end up with something messy-looking like Aeglus' knot yesterday.

I hate belts. They just sagged a bit. When hiked up to their proper spot on my waist, not nearly so puddly. I need to sew some braces buttons in.

Some color to the ps and this is good! And those loafers are nice, maker?

Looks good, however maybe plain (or plaid) blue shirt would have worked even better.

I'm not a huge fan of hats but this works... Really like that DB and that tie!

Awesome choices.

TTO when will you realise that HRR isn't for two weeks time? Your past two outfits have been verging on the gaudy and completely costume. Too many individual elements that although in their own would be excellent additions to an otherwise sober outfit are, when worn together, all vying in competition causing the overall theme to be one of extravagantly overblown dress that simply is not elegant. The boater doesn't sit well with a big full on beard. I own a boater, I like boaters, but I only wear it to rowing events or HRR. Your style works best for me when you tone it down somewhat, and only bring in a few elements at once. Then you look both urbane and elegant. Not all at the same time please!

Nice outfit though. Watch is also nice, but not ideal for that look IMO.

Metal-banded sports watches usually aren't the norm for suits, but I really don't care. I love this watch. But y'know, it wasn't the greatest day.

Then again, any day I'm not being chased through the jungles of Burma by a guy with a saw-tooth bayonet is a great day, as far as I'm concerned. So no, it was a great day.

It's not the wrinkles, Lufty; it's the apparent pooling of fabric at the ankles.

^^dirty bucks are fine, just they go with different colors than something all white.

Disagreed 100%.

I think he's fine, he must enjoy his hair at that age
