Looking wonderful, UC, especially the dickie.

Yes, I have some relics of St. Cuthbert, patron saint of natural fibers, which, if hung in your closet, will purge all polyesters from your wardrobe, and a large reliquary of the thigh bone of Saint Marcy of Syms, a great rarity (partially because she's not dead yet), the patron saint of never paying full retail. It even comes on a rolling stand, so that the owner can wheel it around a store, and it will inevitably find the owner something in his (or her) size marked down at least 50%.

That's nice Stitchy, including the shirt. Why are your shoes leaving you?

Went with a more saturated tie than the last outing. Still figuring this jacket out.

Thank you, buddy. The shirt feels too saturated for me. Ymmv I guess.

The shoes are leaving because they do not fit properly and never really have. I have been trying to just pretend like it's not a big deal, but it is. Part of the GG Barneys sizing fiasco.

But on the plus side, I have an incoming replacement pair of GGs from Spoo to cover this shade of brown.

Yeah, I was super excited to pick up a pair of sutor mantellassi brown suede loafers in an 8.5. Turns out they're english sized so they don't fit. To the marketplace they go!

 

Sad day :/

The Barney's fiasco was that they misrepresented the English size of the shoes they were selling. So even though everyone knew their English to size, everyone got a half size too large until they figured out what was going on. Not cool.

Oh yes... nice combo too... now the shoes. Hahaha :lol:

@upr_crust That really is very impressive, from top to toe, I would never had thought it could have been a maiden bow tie voyage. it looks perfect and you look very much at ease.

I may go out on a limb and say it could well be up there in terms of your top posts

@in stitches I think thats a great combo you got there, again good from top to toe. Particularly liken the tie setting it all off. Shame about the shoes. Shame being they're too big for me!

Thank you, Cleav. This is my first time with a bow tie with a three-piece suit - I've otherwise only worn bow ties in the summer, with summer weight two piece suits. The effect with a three-piece is very "retro", but seems to suit me (as to most modes "retro").

I also am of an age in which I need to do things periodically, so that I can remember how to do them (including tieing a bow tie frown.gif ).
