HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4671  

post #70051 of 78719

SCB: PS and tie would be better contrasting than so close in colour.  But I like them both individually.

 

Cleav, you are looking peachy today my friend.

Thanks for the thumbs yesterday, guys. A new high for me!

 

@DonCologne: Jacket is beautiful, but that is a real statement piece and I think the rest of the outfit would benefit if it was toned down to emphasize such a bold windowpane.

 

@in stitches: Very nice. That is a bold tie choice, wondering your thinking behind it (not that I don't like it).

Thanks for the thumbs recently.

Today.

 

Excellent jacket, and I disagree with @YRR92 about it being too snug (but agree with you that it might be a hair too short). I think the tie sort of throws things off. You have these rustic earth tones everywhere else, and then a pink tie right in the middle. I think something in brown/green/red or even burnt orange or rust might have worked better. Just a thought.

Very good, but two comments: 1) Jacket looks a bit snug (might be the sweater); and 2) the tie & pocket square seem to be a bit matchy. But nice overall!

Yeah, the sweater is leading to a little bulging.

thanks. honestly, it does not strike me as all that bold. my thought behind it was simple. its an awesome tie and i want to own it and wear it. smile.gif

Good points. I guess I saw it as "bold" as it seems to jump out from what is a rather somber suit/shirt/square fit.

i expected you would say that, you said the same the last time i wore such a combo. i hear ya, but i could not disagree more. light brown shoes and navy suit is a wonderful combo. the jarring-ness is part of the appeal.

It won't surprise you that I also agree with Holdfast! And, in this case, this may be a more cultural thing. British tradition tends to favour darker (in fact, black) shoes with navy. I think it would also be better for purely aesthetic reasons as in this fit it almost looks like you are trying to match your shoes to your tie (although this might be just a unintended outcome of the way the colours turned out in the photo) - both elements are very nice individually BTW, and the suit is just excellent.

Agree that @Cleav is quietly demonstrating some very good taste indeed and people should be taking notes. Ditto, @braddock
