Gaiz, I think sugarbutch is stuck in an acid trip time warp and he can't get out.

How do we save him?!?!?!

Nah, he's just immersed in a superkoolap. He'll be fine.

In that other case it was me, and it was more because both were very bright and matching, rather than the matching on its own, Don't see any issue here and I also said recently that browns suit Stitchy. The only problem is that it's way too tasteful and restrained to be properly FU (this was also an entry for the challenge)!

Matching tie too closely to shoes is kind of wonky for exactly the same reason as matching tie to square: it causes your eyes to jump sharply from tie to shoes and back again like a ball stuck between two bouncers on a pinball table.

 

The exception is a genuinely monochrome look where sharp contrasts tend to be the name of the game; because you have more than one such "pair" of matches in the look, the eye jumps around cleanly between all of them. But in this context, the number of colours is VERY stripped down.

 

This is controversial, but IMO I do actually believe that this bit of personal aesthetic preference has some biological/physiological substrate to back it up. We tend to absorb a look through saccadic (sharp/fast/jerky) eye movements rather than smoothly moving from one point to another. Most of these tend to be concentrated around the nose/eyes/lips, but then they bounce around between points of interest in our visual environment. I reckon that two very matching items flag up as things to bounce around between more. I'm not so deeply immersed in the neurophys literature to know if that's been proven, but that's my theory anyway.

 

 

  1. is there science on this Holdo? Not saying i don't believe you, just curious.  Flusser says similar + that the eye gets disorientated when it see two similar sized adjacent patterns, but I've wondered whether this is a physiological fact or a cultural thing.
  2. you're talking bewbs here rite? :)

Borrelli cashmere from Ich_Dien. Lovely coat.
Would have bought one myself if it hadn't been too short for me by an inch. Still pains me a lot...
