OK, that's a traffic-stopper.

Your right sleeve is a bit short as it seems.

Got dressed up for the Friday challenge.  Sleeves on the shirt and the jacket are too short.  I took a test shirt to the tailor to have the sleeves extended.  This jacket is on my short list for the tailor most likely in the next few months.

I totally agree.

Tonally (since this seems to be what's on my mind) the shirt and pants in combination are reminiscent of summer where as the tie, square, and jacket work to create a rustic feel that jars against this. The shirt can work with the top because light blue is a total work horse, but this creates a discordance with the bottom. I think a mid grey flannel trouser would be much better, along with a pair of dark brown suede derbies. All over though - did I get to this statement before anyone else? - I wish more first posts in this thread were as consistent as this.

Also, beware the moose knuckle. We are not tailors - which often bears repeating - and do not need to know which way you dress.
I've not been big on stripes either. My last few tie purchases have been macclesfield prints, which I should probably stop. Maybe I should go in for it just to break the cycle. They also still have the forest green with dots in stock. Maybe I'll make a run at both. Something to think on today.

 

Interesting thoughts! Thanks for your input.

 

Moose knuckle? Haha. Trust me, there's no moose knuckle action going on in that shot. Must be some kind of light phenomenon or something. But then again, my pents have been known to be somewhat of a rorschach test - in them, people often see what they want to see. wink.gif

Thanks guys. 

post #59035 of 78724

Blues and grays today.

 

post #59036 of 78724
Thanks for the replies gents!

AAS, what color is your tie in that fit? Nice use of color as usual..

Stitchie, love the color of that suit. Is the jacket the usual length? It seems a bit short.

Choc, you are consistently killing it!

Rudals, nice looking suit/shirt/tie combo. Hate the oversize/casual watch though.

Now, what is this Friday challenge guys are referring too?

Thanks.  The tie and socks are purple.

A (questionably) purple tie for the Friday challenge. Ebonyman, I trust the full-length shot amply demonstrates my fitness for the bald-head club. Try not to let the shine blind you.
