Finamore MTM shirt
Finamore unconstructed denim sportscoat
Battistoni tie
Michelson's pocket square
Hermès orange H belt
Uniqlo raw slim denim
JM Weston navy...

I'm surprised no one mentioned the: (1) Windsor; and (2) crazy gap on a MTM shirt.

Hate to button the last button and love windsor knots ;-)

Welcome, Ian! What pushed you over the line into the world of internet narcissism?

The tie. It came fom the tie swap box, courtesy of In Stitches, and I took it out for a spin today for the first time.

I will now return to my previous stance of keeping my narcissism offline.

Thanks, but I like a little bit flashy as what's worn nowadays is too conventional IMO. I love the renaissance inspired floral motive of the battistoni, but understand it may not be to everyone's taste. I like dark denim (raw) but never wear faded denim.

I'm starting to think that imatlas might be Ian.

Clags, you could always button both buttons on a paddock coat, which would result in a higher stance. Heck, or even button just the top one, though that doesn't make much sense :p

 

The coat Victor has used as an example is so-so, but he also linked to another example by Slewfoot which looks much better.

Hey, I'm sold. 

 

Disagree, the shirt (collar, fabric) looks way too business-y for the rest of the outfit.

 

And, yeah, it may be correct in some way, but it's not really in good taste :confused:

but hell, if to the educated man this is better than what most fits look like here, who is an ignoramus like me to argue?

in my most subjective of opinions of course.
+1

the only thing I like about that jacket is the fabric.

I'll put a word in his defence. In this context (very laid back / casual working environment) this could work.

 

I personally would never wear that tie, but if you wanna wear it, this is how you should do it: casual outfit, balanced in terms of patterns (solid SC and shirt), colours (blue, light blue, white, yellow, a pretty solid palette, quite consisent in the whole outfit) and materials (shiny tie and PS - wihouth being too matchy -, denim SC, cotton shirt). The collar is also the right one to create the space for a windsor knot.

 

The only 2 things I hate are:

- the shirt's opened button (I'd never do that while wearing a tie)

- the huge H buckle on the belt (I don't mind the colour, but the H is just tacky)

 

I'd also choose a different pair of trousers, in order to have more contrast (lighter jeans or beige/gray chinos). But again, for a casual event where you wanna stand out in a funny/creative way, this is not bad.

Thanks! you grasped my way of thinking pretty much. I am at a point of my career I wear pretty much what I want (providing it's not tasteless). Concerning the opened button, after 10 years (!) of not wearing ties, and starting again, I just can't stand closing that damn top button! The Hermès H belt is a staple of the French wardrobe and since I'm French (by the way, it's not visible under the jacket)... Cheers!
