What's faux tweed?

Very nice, Diaz.

Cloth that feels "tweed-ish" but is not made of cheviot yarn, or at least that's what I believe it is.

Ah gotcha. Whatever it is, the jacket look great. I think I really like patch breast pockets.

Edit: Really blending into the background there.

Great looking suit and the shirt is fine. I think it just needs the right tie and this fit would be awesome.

I agree with stitchy about this being genuinely good. Also, see how much more life/dynamism there is in the colour palette now that it's not all blue/white.

No joke, I think this fit is probably my fave from all those you've posted. Nice colours & textures, with some amusing little touches that don't detract from the overall look. Plus, the cufflinks are awesome, and besides, I was wearing double cuffs with tweed today too and I gotta show solidarity! :D

Thank you. I literally had like 5 seconds to snap a pic and get back to the office. I am surprised that you'd call it my best yet. I really didn't put that much effort into it. But I'll take it!:fonz: 

 

And by the way, I forgot my PS so I used a paper napkin in that shot. No joke. Thank you all though.

Very nice words, HF. I appreciate it!

Thanks, HF for your compliment. But I am still puzzled. I tried much harder in the 2 pix below whereas today's post happened as result of the fact that I had just 5 minutes to grab whatever and run out the door. (Well...I did think about it a little :confused:). So the fact that I worked in a patterned shirt that changed things a bit? :puzzled:

I can only speak for myself, but I can tell you why I don't like either of the two pics you've included in the spoilers above:

 

The first has a white linen square with a coloured border. I have one myself (red border); I almost never wear it. I find these squares a bit naff, to be honest. So that already marks it down. Beyond that I just don't like the scale of the windowpane in the suit; I prefer a slightly bigger scale one, like in Betelgeuse's suit from a page or two ago. Small windowpane suits are too "neither here nor there". Small difference, but enough for me.

 

As for the second look, I tend not to like non-solid grenadines and that looks suspiciously like one (and if it's one of those ties that's part-smooth/part-textured, I like it even less). More fundamentally, there isn't enough life in the look for me: the dark blue of the tie is too similar to suit, and the grey is also too low a contrast to it. Add in the pale blue shirt and it all feels a bit sleepy to me.

 

By contrast, the pic you showed today features a more interesting colour palette and some genuine interplay between suit/shirt/tie. It is engaging, without shouting, which I suspect is pretty much how you like your clothes to look from what you've said previously. I wouldn't call it innovative or brilliant, but it is genuinely good.

 

All the above is foetid mix of subjective prejudice and perhaps a dash of more objective colour commentary, so take or leave as you see fit. But it does explain my position.
