... until I scrolled down and saw the light-coloured shoes. I will never get the aesthetic appeal of a dark suit plus light shoes; for me, it causes the eye to jump from important face/tie area right down to shoes in a really harsh way, rather than being able to smoothly take in the whole outfit while still focusing attention on the face. Moreso IRL than in photos, too. With a casual outfit, there are a greater number of points of visual interest to move around on anyway, so light coloured shoes aren't a problem (or at least, less of a problem) and with a light suit, obviously they're fine... but with a dark suit, it just seems so harsh to me. I can just about understand Italians liking it, as the quality of their sunlight mellows the look out a bit, by altering the look of a dark suit a bit. But in more northern lands, especially in winter, with our different kind of sunlight... Oh well, each to their own, and I do accept that mine is a minority opinion on SF.

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.


Am I getting that repetitive? I really need a new hobby... :D

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.

post #70055 of 78722

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.
