Howard Yount (tie, trousers)

Kent Wang (square)

 

 

Your trousers and sportcoat are absolutely flawless. Just perfect. Where are the trousers from if I may ask?

I don't think that tie goes with that shirt. It would look a lot better if the shirt were a solid. I don't like the pattern on the square, it reminds me of a bandana.

Seamaster, I need a suit like that. Looks great. Oh, the watch too of course. smile.gif

PS: Now you know you have to take a picture of the closet, right?

For better or worse, my partner and I are not the same size, and no, I don't have to post a picture of the closet - just imagine a closet in the Collyer Brothers mansion, only with more stylish contents, and you'd have an accurate picture of what the thing looks like.

Needs a jacket.  Not just joking.  The standard solid navy would be a safe choice.

 

To my eye a shirt with complex stripes like that needs a plainer tie.  I'd go with something solid, and darker than the one in the photo for more contrast.  Blue, burgundy, brown, all could be good.  With the imaginary navy jacket brown might be my first choice.

 

To be honest, I'd have trouble with that tie in most contexts as the dots are too big for my tastes (and wardrobe): the only ties I wear with dots on them are pin dots.  But take into account that I'm someone who's very cautious about patterns, and who wears mostly suits, not sport coats.   Others may have some useful suggestions about contexts in which that tie might work.

 

Cheers,

Yes.  This is why I don't post pictures of my face.

 

Just imagine Brad Pitt.

Tie is Diony's Star. Anyone ever heard of it? I got it last week from Spoo, is an awesome tie but I can't find any reference to that make online.

I am inclined to agree. I think it's a nice balance for you. The tie is quieter than some of what you've posted (and more to my taste), but it's not shy or retiring, and the watch and cufflinks stand up to it. It's slightly idiosyncratic, but within a very conservative, very businesslike frame.

 

I'm afraid I don't like the shoes -- I think everything else is too sharp for a five-eyelet blucher, though black is a good choice. A three-eyelet plain toe (like those Grensons I think I've seen you post) would look good, as would a monkstrap or some kind of funky oxford.

Thanks! 

 

They're actually four-eyelet but OK. My range of shoes is actually very narrow as I've often found it hard to find things I like in my size (46). I've a nice pair of Emidio Tucci's coming from Spain soon (they are a decent shoe and pretty inexpensive) and I hope to invest more in shoes over the summer.

That PS is driving me crazy, it's extremely difficult to use. There are small paisley in the middle of the pocket square that are rather simple but the stronger paisley part is quite difficult

Perhaps if it had a bit more color in it rather than what seems to be two.

I already have several multicolor paisley PS. 

 

I bought this one for the purpose of having only two colors but it turns out to be a headache

PS would have been better had it been a simple white linen tv fold. It's a little too much for me unfortunately.
