I suppose if you're coming from the office it makes more sense, but the idea of wearing a coat and tie to a movie strikes me as a bit odd and decidedly anachronistic.

OK, I hadn't actually been home after work, so you're right.  But I do think it's nice to wear a jacket and tie just for its own sake sometimes.  I mean, we're all regency revivalists really, aren't we?

 

I think if anachronisms offend you, you might be preaching in the wrong church. :lol:

It's a very leery look; vaguely Hollywood gangster, or even spivvy. I still like it as an occasional look, precisely because it's so obviously anti-taste and I've always enjoyed cocking a snook. This kind of look occupies a much smaller proportion of my wardrobe than it used to; I've found it useful to broaden my wardrobe and my circumstances have changed in the meantime too, requiring a slightly difference presence most of the time... but I'd never abandon it altogether as a look. It's very outside the bounds of discretion, but that's what's inherently amusing about it, at least to me.

 

This is a fantastic response and very astute--only from a psychiatrist (which you are, if I remember correctly [sic]), natch! Thing is, I reckon you could make it look more modern by maybe a black knit tie or the like (maybe, a brown knit tie and brown, suede chukkas--depending on whether the stripes are pink or purple). I'm not entirely sure what I would use; it may be one of those times you need to see it to know, but it is a great suit, and I would wear that shit always! :):tounge:

Situational awareness and a realistic approach is something I have long espoused on these fora. However, given the usual attempts in MC Casual, it seems to be a losing proposition. And while I agree a tie and coat are nice from time to time, it still strikes me as odd that you would choose to wear formal attire to a dark theater made for relaxing. But whatever makes you happy, I suppose.

Personally, I think I would find it uncomfortable to wear a tie at a movie. Tho I never tried, so I can't say for sure.

If it was just a movie, I almost certainly would have eschewed the tie. But, for various reasons, I like to wear a tie when dining out with the Wifey, despite living in a city where wearing closed-toed shoes is akin to donning formal wear.

Love the birdseye suit, GMMcL. What watch are you wearing there?

I think the tie is too dark for the rest of the outfit.  Sometimes you have to just stop trying on clothes and go to work though.  I think navy pants world have worked better.

I don't think it is a problem, but rather than change the tie maybe try a square that is darker than the shirt but lighter than the tie? Just a thought.

The shoulders are stronger (wider, more roped and extended), the chest seems to be cleaner, the coat is a bit longer, the buttoning point is lower, the lapels thinner. It's an interesting cut and I think that you wore it well. I think that a cream square, not necessarily a solid, would make this fit even better for me.
