These are terrible! Because you are such a good guy, send them to me, and I shall make sure that they are taken care of properly!
Seriously, you did well. Beautiful ties.

I hope my shell never looks like that :confused:

 

Though I get that that is the appeal for some.

All my shoes are tree kept and shined on trees of proper size, and these are no exception. I have never had success keeping my shell shoes as pristine as some here do. It bothers me.
A very, very, very little bit.

As it happens, today's "British inspired style" is due to the fact that suit, shirt and tie were sourced from UK sources (New & Lingwood, Lewin, and Tyrwhitt, respectively), but thank you in any case, and I'll try to provide something "different" for my postings in this thread (as if I could avoid being "different" in my tastes - not likely!).

Been on sale around 30% off for a while.

Thanks! That's really lovely. They're out of my size, and way out of my budget, but it's still very desirable.

Thanks. It's a fairly light worsted flannel, and the tie is a slightly slubby silk. Given that we're a little bit inbetween seasons, I figured I'd break that one, I know I've sniped at shantung with tweed and flannel before, but I figured I've give a watered down version a shot. Not normally something I'd do.

@upr_crustDidn't make myself clear obviously (typing on blackberry). I meant this thread needs more variety. We need more posters like you. I like the way you standout and we need more people with distinct personal styles.

Funny you say that because for a long time I thought he was British. I can still imagine a very proper British accent and I think a New York accent would really throw me for a loop, especially if he sounded like a stereotypical Bronx cab driver you always see in movies and tv shows.

Mine are Carmina cap toe and I use trees so I'm thinking if it happens it won't be nearly as pronounced.

buy RL marlows now.

, maybe it's the angle of the last picture, but it looks like the jacket is pulling at the button and forming the 'x' brace a bit. Is it? Not sure if it's happening because of you hand in your pocket.

I feel your pain. It freaking sticks out and pulls at your pants whether you put it in your side or your back pocket. 

But still a great device. Do you use the voice function and yell, "SHOOT" at the camera when taking pictures? :bounce2:

Hey gents, thought I'd post a thrift fit. Everything's a local pickup. Being a student, I don't really get many chances to go all-out, this is pretty typical.

 

(Unseen) 
Vintage hard rock cafe varsity jacket with suede accents

Coach essex briefcase in brown

 

Shirt: Gitman vintage

Jeans: APC New Standards

Shoes: Sutor Mantellassi chukkas

 

Sadly, the Klipsch X10s were not thrifted :P

I like the idea of this, but the tie's knit pattern is creating a kind of visual stripe that appears too close in scale to the shirt stripe. I think a tie with less textural "patterning" would work better here, possibly a fina grenadine, linen or shantung.

Nice Conrad Wu tie! Am I right? :D
