Victor, it's great to see you posting again. I don't really know whether it's deliberate or not, but there's always a lovely sense of idiosyncratic pastiche about many of your outfits, which I really like.

I also got a black garza fina which has yet to be worn. It replaced a satin silk tie I had, and will be fine if I'm ever required to attend a funeral. But I'm of the opinion that ties offer the chance for a splash of colour in otherwise sedate backgrounds (navy/ charcoal suit, solid or blue striped shirt) so despite the general adoration of black knit or grenadine ties by the SF intelligentsia, any time I consider wearing a black tie I decide to go for something more colorful instead.

 

I wear my black grenadine very occasionally and agree that it's just too funereal for most days. Funnily enough when I bought mine, it was also to replace a satin silk black tie. I do have a suit (and one jacket) that plays very well with a black tie though, so I'm thinking about getting a black knit for it. A bit less morbid than the black grenadine, so it should work fine for those days.

 

On a more general - and equally heretical - note, I find solid colour grenadines to be a lot less versatile than SF tends to view them. For me, they're too more formal for most odd jacket looks (if you want a textured tie for those, wear a knit or a wool/cashmere if it's winter), while still not being formal enough for a more businessy suit where you'd typically wear a normal silk tie. And I don't really like solid on solid looks most of the tie anyway. So I find that they occupy a fairly narrow spectrum of utility of being used with suits that are somewhat - but not too much so - casual in both fabric & pattern. This is why I only own two of them: the aforementioned rarely-worn black, and a navy.

The shirt collar looks very nice in close up, but a bit flattened in the fuller shot. Not sure why. Is it slightly too big for your neck perhaps, and so falling down a bit?

Not my cup of tea at all, but I get what you're aiming for, and think it works in that context.

This is a prime example of the kind of jacket (pattern & colours) that I would hate on me, and but think it can look great on others. Nice one.

I find the green of the cardigan a little too close to the green of the cords. Overall palette is nice though.

Glad you remembered to; good-looking suit. It's what I think of as a very "appropriate" silhouette: fits right, and without any sort of crazy cut or detail that would offend anyone. A go-anywhere sort of suit.

Wet & gloomy day. But never fear; this shirt reminds me of summer deckchairs!

Along with Florian Küblbeck, I think his SF nick is sterling or something.

Me like those pants, Pingson. Deets?

Now, today's conundrum is, "What to wear to jury duty?", or, more specifically, "What to wear so as not to be chosen for a jury?". I am unsure whether my attire today will have any effect on the lawyers on both sides of cases at 100 Centre St., but at least it makes me feel comfortable.

Suit, cufflinks & tie - BB
Shirt - Lewin
PS - Robert Talbott
Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC

In the top picture, at least on my screen, the shirt appears to be gray. Obviously, it is blue. But.... a gray shirt with those stripes paired with this suit and tie would be outstanding, too.
