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.

I do have that Shibumi PS in three colours, burgundy, green and blue - it's surprisingly versatile - I was looking for my green one this morning but could't find it (it's probably still left in the pocket on one of my jackets), so I went with the burgundy one, which it turns out was a sub-optimal choice for me. Yours, OTOH, look stunning with that tie.....

I think Mimo is just naturally blurry.....

DS, sheesh...he wants to talk about the photographs.  Seriously, you might be right about the phone; my new company is the Nokia agent among other things, so it's possible. 

 

Thanks, Pingson!  From you it counts double.  Our other PS in common is the Duchamp flowery green and orange one.  I love it. I suspect we might have some Drake's overlap too.

Yea, that one is really nice icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif, but at least I find it a little too summery to wear now...

Uncle Nemo, do your hands shake when you take pictures? tongue.gif
I can send you one of my nice cameras...that used to be phones.
Seriously, we'd like to see your awesomeness in clarity. Now get back to our thread

Very likely. Unless I come up with another combo this week.

And thanks for all the thumbs, dudes.
