AAS: that is you at your very best, my friend: taking a crazy idea, implementing it, then...stopping.  No need to add a loud tie, or silly shoes, or a Black Watch shirt or a feather boa.  Just a simple unorthodox idea speaking for itself.  You're a truly stylish guy when you do this.  I'm sure you don't care too much what I think, but being deliberately eccentric can cross that line between individual and self-consciously foolish - and I mention it because I'm sure I like many of us cross that line from time to time!  But when you have that tiny bit of restraint on top of a truly different concept, you hit that sweet spot better than most.  *applause*

 

Donuts, that's a great example of the brown shoes and "lighter" suit look I think I was getting at a couple of pages back.  The tie and shirt complement the less formal shoes perfectly.  Nice.

 

Also, by coincidence, a package arrived today to remind me why Shaya "Exquisite" Green is my favourite Joo and Stitchy and his complicated love is only second:

Thank you! The overcoat is from Suitsupply FW'13. I believe it still is online

+1 I would totally buy and wear that in that package. Albeit, you look infinitely better in it, no doubt.

Nice sunny day, 27C, winter is on its way out.  But I have a new flannel three piece and it has to be worn at least once!

And if we're doing flannel, might as well add double-soled brogues...

Mimo, we're pocket square twins today, as you will see if and when I get around to posting pics. (Or maybe I shouldn't, this is perhaps the SF equivalent to a woman showing up at a party and realising someone there is wearing the same dress?)

That's at least two we have in common!  As long as we don't have matching ties as well I think we're OK. :)

I used to have a pearl grey herringbone cashmere jacket. I loved it, but it is a little tricky to use for exactly the reason you highlight. I found it worked best within (relatively) monochromatic looks. For example, charcoal/mid-grey or winter-white/cream trousers & black shoes/boots or oxblood/burgundy ones respectively. Shirt white or those very pale/icy shades of blue or pink. Tie dark grey or black or with the cream trousers/oxblood shoes combo, you can go for a dark colour tie (navy, forest green, chocolate brown, etc).

 

 

I pretty much agree with both of you, in fact. For me, the default with navy suits is indeed black shoes... and most of the time, I feel that looks by far the best. But I do certainly recognise a useful/acceptable/more informal role for either very dark brown or dark burgundy. In fact, inspired by the discussion yesterday, I chose to wear a burgundy pair with a navy suit today. What I don't much like is lighter brown with navy. Obviously it has found widespread acceptability and naturally, I can rationally accept that... but my gut still tells me that it looks wrong, and I don't wear it.

 

If the suit is a lighter shade of blue, then lighter brown can look just fine, though. For example, a sapphire blue or RAF blue or steel blue or equally light summer suit could pair very nicely with a number of shades of brown inc. light brown. My distaste for them is predominantly with dark navy.

 

Anyway, that burgundy shoes/navy suit combo I mentioned. Lighting was even more terrible than usual, so the correction is equally harsh:

Beautiful pinstripe compliments ....

As we doing nearly everything/one else in the other thread, could we not cover the topic of mimo's OD'ed phone replacement there? I vote for Nokia 1020 (41mpx), so we can finally see him clearly.
