My tribute to St. Patty's day:


Pents are dark green with Borrelli johdpurs in espresso calf.

Excellent.

 

BTW, I received my Post-Imperial tie the other day (HM Customs delayed it for ages) - really beautiful and I look forward to wearing it in the Summer!

I haven't read Flusser, but as a short fellow, I learned through trial & error that middling gorges suit me much better than the lower ones, so that's another datapoint at the other end of the spectrum to back this up.

Indeed!

Personally, I think a lighter-coloured tie would work better to balance out against the trouser/shoe combination. Maybe that cream/red striped one of yours?

 

 

 

 

Not my finest hour today, but in my defence I had to wake up a bit before 8, far earlier than my usual, so wasn't exactly full of the joys of Spring at that time of the day. I hate mornings...

This sentiment alone deserves a thumb.  Or at least an expression of what may be nearly universal assent.

 

Cheers,

And here's mine. Just the one shot today because I'm hella busy (as is the shirt tie combination, I know).

How was SXSW, CD? Were you there for business or pleasure?

Thanks for you feedback but it's a personal thing as always with menswear.

I don't remember who rebloged this on tumblr but I agree with Clags. The second one is not bad at all. 

 

 

 

I like this. I love the tie. :slayer: But I agree with PCk1 about the trousers. :embar:

 

Thanks man! Same thing about the trousers but it's always fun to hear others opinions.

Nothing too exciting, just a new (for me) tie.  Shirt is a white self herringbone, but you can’t make out the pattern in the photo I’m afraid.

 

Sláinte!

@Braddock, that is amazing. So many patterns, but so much win. I love how the tie, the ps, and the scarf all work together even though they seem incongruous at first!

I have never had more compliments on a jacket/fit IRL. Like strangers in the hallway compliments. I wore this last at a kentucky derby party and strangers stopped me in the street while driving to honk and holler. It was hilarious.


I only wear it maybe 2-4 times a year, but man is it worth holding on to.

And yes @Crat, St. Patrick's day in Boston. If it was warmer and I wasn't wearing a jacket, it would probably take me an hour to walk a 5 minute distance due to the attention this jacket gets haha.
