^^More like a Zhang Ziyi fan. But yeah, I really liked the book, much more than I did the movie.

Really like this. Think the brown trousers work well.

(All this assumes, of course, that the Isaia swag is worn ironically.)

Today was the dreaded navy pents fit.

I didn't set out to end up in navy pents. But that's where I ended up after rejecting just about every other option. I would appreciate thoughts for what else might have worked. I guess some kind of brown or umber, but I think the pair I used to have in that color fell victim to my latest closet cleanse, because I couldn't find them. ffffuuuu.gif

I have 0 hate for yellow ties. Even if I had any, I'd find it hard not liking this combination.

Thanks for all the comments guys, it seems like some yellow ties might actually be acceptable then biggrin.gif. I used to be rather sceptical of yellow ties, mostly because of looks like this:



However, this really changed my mind:

GMM - one of the hardest parts about effective use of navy pents, is that they are extremely difficult to photograph without losing the navy color to an almost black block of color. some of the navy is visible in your pic, but not all, and i doubt its true to color. i will assume it is a lovely navy and say, well done!

I for one don't subscribe to the "no navy trousers" idea (I'm even wearing a pair as I write this smile.gif), but I think that when navy trousers work (as they do in GMMcLs fit!) there is often another option that would work equally well or better. In this case a pair of dar grey/charcoal trousers would look splendid, I think.
