Coherence, I guess, is taking things to a slightly more esoteric level, which may result in flaws in a fit, or on the other side, complete balance.

This sounds like just the right attitude to me. And we're all learning, the first step is just admitting it! nod[1].gif

I don't see any "controversy" Mr. Evil. Though some here go into a rabid fit over contrast cuffs/ collars. I think it's a great fit.

dark charcoal pents

light SC

PS with a tie size/pattern neat.

i like it, but it flies in the face of a lot of "rules."

and yeah, that fit worked in the FC, but was lambasted elsewhere, so its just a matter of what "rules" you buy into and a question of how much stock do you put into them versus how good something looks to the eye.


Yeah I agree with you, tho I have never understood the "tie pattern/size" rule for PSs puzzled.gif

I noticed this with a lot of your fits. It's much harder to do two of the same pattern (neat tie/neat square) than it is to do two different ones (neat tie / big paisley or graphic square). I like neat squares with striped ties or knits, though.

 

The no tie patterns in squares "rule" starts with Manton, who wouldn't wear a large paisley tie.

Sorry for the double post, my phone wasn't letting me put 2 pictures in the same field.





Nice job to all you dudes who are pulling younger women. Does a 34 day difference count as robbing the cradle?

I should have guessed, it sounded very much like a Manton-rule....... sneaky2.gif

(Yes, the jacket is a touch short -- by about 0.5 inches. What's really happening is that the trou are longer rise (vintage) and sitting a touch low, which is making the jacket seem even shorter.

That is a very beautiful PS.  I am not feeling the tie.
