Blue oxford: most versatile shirting? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
(Last one is today.)
Very nice. Luxire?
Time to bust out the cashmere! Shoes are much darker brown than they look on the last two pics.

Rudals: IMO I don't think the suit is bad at all, I would use another tie and I, it's a preference of mine, don't like to wear blue with black. But the suit doesn't look bad.
Donuts: Great, great tie!
Monkeyface: Fantastic jacket!
I meant to ask G-Mac about his shoes; thought they might be the Barker Cambridge. I have something similar en route, though not that one.
Rudals, I think that suit is so bright and in-your-face that it's the perfect counterbalance for that red tie. The whole thing is far from subtle, but it's fuck-you consistent. I think if you're in a bold mood, it rather suits you. Especially for national holidays. ;)
Thx man. Had you said the suit sucked, I wud've fedex'd it to you. Too late! Your reference to "blue with black" are you referring to black belt and shoes or black ties? Cus I sometimes wear brown belt and brown (dark) shoes with this.
Thx, you made my day!
If the suit says, "F-U!!!" then might as well sport a fine piece of mother father red tie that also says, "F-U too!!!"
Looks like, I'll go with this combo...unless CLAGHORN vetoes it;;;;;;;
I don't remember saying once that that suit sucked, I did said that if you didn't liked it, Mexico would be glad to give it a home, but it will be very small to me. Is the belt in the pic brown? If it is, I apologize, I usually wear dark brown with blue. But yes, my commento to the black an blue is generally for blue/navy suit with black shoes and black belt.
I don't always like the casual/CM mix, one could say the jacket and PS is a little too formal, or that the belt and shoes might be closer in colour. But, I need to put my prejudices aside here: Kappelan, I think you look great today. A very civilised kind of casual indeed.
IMO, if you're going to do the longer, showing back blade, then don't do the tie clip. Or vice versa. The clip says attention to detail or precision whereas the longer back blade says you just threw the tie or and let it fall where it may. The two messages are in opposition, I think, which then just emphasises the conscious deliberation behind both the askew angle and longer blade.
I only nitpick because I love everything else about the look.
