thanks! but lets not get carried away with that last part.

(This thread would be very different from the good taste thread in being more inclusive in the nature of fits - allowing directional or flamboyant stuff to be included - simply using some measure of perceived quality as a filtering. It would also be different from, say, vox's old digest, gdl's old fit of the day, or RJE's occasional best of threads - or indeed a tumblr/blog - in being more than one person's opinion of what's interesting. Finally, commentary of why you pick a fits to include would NOT be required or expected, so as to minimise the effort of contribution.)
Unless there's another gdl thread I missed? (entirely possible!)
If there's enough interest, I'll try to get something up by tomorrow evening. In the final analysis it'll be up to intelligence/effort of the membership to decide whether it sinks or swims, or is successful in distilling out some really nice posts (in the organic way the SWD best of seems to work); I'd only be kickstarting it with an initial selection of images to get the thread started and subsequently occasionally submitting an entry I think is worthy if the truly miraculous happens and I happen to see it in this thread before someone else does.
I tend to like leaving the bottom button of my overcoat undone, unless it's particularly cold or windy. I actually feel it makes more practical sense on an overcoat than a jacket or a waistcoat. I walk with a long stride and it makes it easier, and puts less stress on the buttons and vent seam.
Today on the train ... Time passes more .... what do you think? Obviously, tie and pocket square-I made them myself with my hands =)Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Today, inspired by AAS fantastic recent monochrome fit. This one isn't monochrome, but it's certainly inspired by the fit he put together:

Thank you for your encouragement concerning this outfit, gentleman. There were three things about it I thought would not go over well on SF.
1) The vest and jacket are both herringbone.
2) The pocket square and tie match.
3) I'm wearing a collar bar with a button down shirt.
I didn't say anything about this before because I didn't want to sabotage myself the challenge. So apparently these things were overlooked or maybe they aren't as offensive as I think they are. What of it?
