awe, snap! thanks, mang!
hope you like this also. round 2 with the NMWA GP, this time with warm colors.
Sorry, estitchy, can't spoiler this cause it's amazing. I really like this shoes with this suit. IMO better than black ones.
Don, there's a hell of a lot going on there. Probably unwise as a concept. Yet actually, I think you look brilliant. Well done, I'm not sure many people could have pulled that one off - the benefit of your regularly taking risks is that now and again you really hit one. I love that!
Stitch, I'm so glad you made that second post. I was a little scared to scroll up again and check, but at one point I imagine you were wearing some kind of...plimsolls. I feel quite queasy. Anyway, glad order is restored: I love everything about your fit, except that the tie and shoes match so closely. Mine do a bit today, too, but I've an odd jacket so it's not so noticeable. If only you had a PS again to break up the two-tone effect. But you're still beautiful.
Clag, your poses are becoming irritating. You look fabulous.
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?
To me, the herringbones differ enough in prominence to be fine (the light jacket is much fainter than the darker waistcoat) and the whole purpose of the challenge was monochrome, so avoiding square/tie matching would be impossible. Besides there looks like another pattern on the square anyway. I didn't realise it was a BD shirt rather than just a bar... theoretically I don't like that combo. But if I didn't see it, it clearly didn't bother me! :)
Ah, I didn't realise others had/could contribute to it. It looked to me like it was just his personal selections. Yeah, fair enough then, less fragmentation makes sense.
Really terrible photo quality today. Little looks right; either too bright, too dark, wrong colour, too over-corrected or whatever. Meh...
Shirt & trousers are new. Both are summer pieces, but as I only just got them, I wanted to wear them the once now. From Luxire, the shirt has a one-piece collar and is really intended for wearing without a jacket. The trousers are my first such order from them and will need a bit of tweaking. But not bad for a first attempt!
