Newish navy sportcoat - not sure if this shoulder is for me, but it was cheap and worth trying out.
Bathroom lightning vastly superior.
Today. I started with a blue shirt. I then decided on the jacket. I choose dark brown pants to coordinate with the dark brown in the jacket. I then choose a black watch tie. I thought the tie was blue and green so the blue would go nicely with the shirt (upon closer inspection it's purple and green). I added a green sweater to go with the green in the tie. Next, I added a pocket square with a navy base and green and white paisley to go with the blue in the tie and green in the tie and sweater. Lastly, I put on a pair of brown silk knots. Dressed. Socks are black watch and shoes are dark brown.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I thought black watch and solid green seamed like I neat combo until I tried to wear it the other day and I decided I don't like it. Looks much better here tough - I would consider a navy knit but perhaps the contrast with the coat would to harsh.
I do find the square a bit too busy for the busy coat tough, but otherwise I find the look enjoyable.
People aren't defending smoking, they are defending letting grown men do whatever the fuck they want, and not casting down upon them with some contrived holier than thou speech. Someone who vocalizes their disagreement with a stranger's behavior when it does not directly affect them is a douchebag, it doesn't matter if you go up to someone in a restaurant and lecture them about the horrors of factory farmed meat, if you go into an ice cream shop and tell another parent not to give their children sweets, or you tell an overweight person that they are a burden to society.
Lots of shit is bad for you, drinking alcohol, eating processed food, texting while driving, bullfighting, fucking a navy seal's girlfriend.
Point is, unless you are the dude's parent, close friend, or significant other, let him do whatever he wants if it doesn't directly affect you.
You are playing tennis and he is standing next to the court causing you to breathe in the smoke, you are perfectly justified in telling him to fuck off; he is standing by himself, not bothering anybody smoking, and you take issue, he is perfectly justified in telling you to fuck off.
I´m not defending smoking, but I defend everybodys freedom to do such unnecessarily things, if he wants.
If you do not like this, you must emigrate to countrys like north korea or china.
Since when was futility ever a hindrance to discussion here?
From a purely sartorial angle, there is nothing elegant about bad breath or heart disease. But JR has a fair point - it's a matter of personal choice. Like jeans with a tie, or lapel flowers. Just a bit smellier.
In the mean time, it was undeniably a visual enhancement of Stitchy's gangster pose - if not of his life.

Edit - Don, I like your new display picture; made me smirk.
