Thanks, the collar gap is most likely caused by standing a little crooked when taking the pic.

Trousers are Ede MTM cords; they are fun, aren't they?
The shirt is Luxire, a white "panana weave" which I think is a somewhat fancy oxford weave, yes. And I'll take the "almost"! For me, they're about right; not the full-on very Italian roll you sometimes see, but a more than the typical British one. I like it; it creates some attention around the centre of the body that replaces that which is lost by the lack of a tie.
They're definitely fun! I'd love to find some burgundy or perhaps yellow cords for a reasonable price. Yeah, that's why I said almost! The collar looks great, but it's on the border of being too much. Have you tried a slightly higher collar? If it stands more upright the roll would look a little less beefy.
I have tried a collar that's 0.25" higher than this in the past; it becomes too high for the back my neck. Anyway, I'm happy with the appearance as is.Originally Posted by in stitches
i am very displeased with my full pic today. which is a shame, because i really like the fit.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Photo looks fine to me. My personal biases mean that I'm never going to be able to truly come round to pale brown/tan shoes with solid navy suits - it pulls the eye up & down way too much for my liking - but this must be a very decent example of the breed as I don't actually dislike it.post #60633 of 787179/24/13 at 10:49amQuote:Originally Posted by in stitches
GMMcL, very nice.
ZOOOMG STANLEY!! WE ARE SHOO TWINZ THIS FINE DAY!!!

I like the combination of the shoes and the orange tie! What's wrong with the full pic? It's better than any pic I've ever posted on here.post #60634 of 787179/24/13 at 10:55amMr. Chris, very nice fits young man!
Stitchie, those shoes are very very orange, but I like the style on you.
DC, other than the fit/color of the cords (which is nice), this stuff is not flattering when put together...post #60635 of 787179/24/13 at 11:02amQuote:Originally Posted by Holdfast

wow, thanks man! i have always loved the jarring juxtaposition of light tan shoes and a navy suit, and have been meaning to try it. today is that day. glad i did not fail.
not sure whats bothering me about the pic. maybe the angle, maybe the way my legs look, idk, but i dont like it. glad it seems to be just me for now.Quote:

Indeed, I was only joking. I'm sure you know that JW isn't looked upon that favourably in the whisky world. Anyway, if I were drinking that much whisky I'd vary a bit between a good scotch, some rye (for the obligatory old fashioned), and even bourbon once in a while, but JW would not be part of the rotation (blue label being the exception, although it's a bit overpriced).post #60644 of 787179/24/13 at 12:32pmQuote:Originally Posted by Monkeyface

I went from Chopin (the vodka) to JW...I guess it's time to mix it up and switch. I really can't shell out $200 on the JW blue label because that means I can't go to Neiman Marcus and pick up a nice Tom Ford Charvet tiepost #60645 of 787179/24/13 at 12:33pm
