No, Derk has new spawn. He confuses the public by having a picture of Stitchy as his avatar.

Today's suit I wore some four weeks ago, after not having worn it in a long time. It was in need of tailoring, being too loose on me. I just got it back last night from the tailor - results are as below.

Suit - BB Regent
Shirt & cufflinks - Tyrwhitt
Tie & braces - Paul Stuart
Shoes - Finsbury, Paris

All of this really makes me think that I should invest in a shantung(sp?) to try things out as perhaps a midground, but I've not gotten around to it yet.

I have that exact tie....and its definitely one of my favorites for the reasons you mentioned.

and yes...you REALLY need to try out some shantungs....i have a few by drakes and vanda...I LOVE my brown vanda... go kop...naow.

It sure is!

I had to ask smile.gif. I got my grey PoW suit from a few days ago from TCS as well. Great store.

They're actually dark brown chelseas (RM Williams). Out of curiosity, where did this term "rig" come about to refer to an outfit? Quasi-military thing?

That sounds like a challenge to me!

 

(nice outfit, btw.)

 

 

 

 

 

More playing around with purple ties in readiness for this week's challenge theme (I actually prefer yesterday's implementation, esp. given the season):

Thanks! It's certainly smarter than yesterday's fit, but I'm not as fond of it. In winter, I'd prefer it though. Not sure which I'll put forward as my challenge entry; I think this one would probably get more votes.

 

And I'll stick with "fits". Mainly because my outfits have a tendency to cause seizures amongst viewers. devil.gif

HF - purple always goes over well with me.

Derek - I keep thinking I should by the Navy-Red double bar from Vanda, but do you have any other recommendations?

Model is : AL 13320/32 It's at least 10 years old.
