Suit. Colour is in between both pics.

Is your shirt unbuttoned or is that the spread of the collar?  

 

Enough contrast between suit and shirt?  Hard to tell from pics with color variation.

 

I really like the tie with that suit.  Also like the PS, even if some would say too matchy with the tie.

I wondered the same thing at first glance. I believe the collar just has too much tie space. Regardless, I like the outfit. The tie knot needs some work, though.

I'm not saying it's 'wrong', especially in the US / Ivy context where blazer / SC and plaid pants is a staple, I just can't help seeing Black Watch pants as either something to be worn as a modern variation on Scottish (or more general) evening wear or alternatively very casual fits, and even (hawk, spit) golf wear. Maybe, being of partly Highland Scots descent, I just can't get that enthusiastic about Black Watch full stop (we had this discussion before once on the forum if I recall). So it could be just my own prejudices. On the other hand it might be because the photos you posted tend to emphasize the separation of top and bottom halves - so it looks like a very blue top half and then a green and black lower half with nothing tying them together. I guess I'd like to actually see the full fit here.

I know you're kidding, but that's not what he meant. And I only pipe up because I don't want to tamp free discourse, even critiquing sartorial kung fu masters and even in jest.

Personally, I thought it came together well, but I will confess to a small voice in my own head that immediately said: Navy blazer with blackwatch? Discordant -- both because of the relative formality (in tartan terms) of blackwatch versus the informality of a navy blazer, but more importantly because I've always thought a dark navy to half would be too close to work with a tartan whose dominant color is navy.

To be fair, AAS does it all the time, and Spoo defies laws that would defeat mere mortals.

Not sure where that leaves us other than, as usual, Spoo did what I thought was impossible.

Yeah. I'd love to see full spoo-fits!


Also, I want to see those damn boots in all their glory.

What kind of idiot wears a three piece flannel suit when it's almost 30C?  Me, that's who...just collected from the tailor, and even though it's too warm now, it had to be worn in full glory at least once!  And posted, even a quick selfie in the door and even though I forgot my PS...I will chastise myself accordingly.  Equally weather-inappropriate shell NST's from AE, madder tie from Drake's.  And I need a haircut.  New job, just moved house, busy OK?

I agree with you 100%. I loathe dark shirts and this one (a gift) was experimental. The square could have easily been left out, but it had been sitting unworn since I bought it in the fall, so into the pocket it went. I get into ruts where I wear the same things that I like/know work, so it's nice to get feedback on something that I try out for the first time.

Recommendation for the next one, a lower buttoning point. I am aware that I am going against the trend towards high buttoning points, but that one deserves some comment, the lower button is way above the hip pockets line. A more balanced buttoning (look, I am advocating for a low) will be more flattering and more comfortable. Would also play with the lapels shape and with the sleeve length.

@Gianni Cerutti, this is awesome!! I especially love the wide spaced chalk stripes with the club collar here.  

 

@ Conradwu & Betelgeuse, very nice outfits you posted there!

Tonight I am attending the members' preview for the Whitney Biennial, an event for which it is impossible to be ill-dressed, since the attendees range from museum patrons to working artists, to Williamsburg and Bushwick hipsters (with or without trust funds). The art is usually execrable, but the people-watching is superb - creatures whom seem only to come to life within the walls of a museum when there is promise of free booze and a bohemian ambiance.

My attire for this evening is somewhat defensive - the flat cap (versus a proper hat) allows me to eschew the endless line at the coat check, and to either wear or carry my overcoat.

In a room full of hipsters, the most revolutionary thing to be is a bourgeois, hence today's attire.
