Any suggestions as to a better tie to go with this suit?

The color scheme is perfect. But pants that are material?

I'm torn between slavishly trying to copy the "approved look" and pressing on with my own style. The former would in some ways be easier but ultimately a kind of cop-out; very few succeed with the latter approach. I would hate to become one of those "always fails, never learns, wish he would just piss off" guys. Maybe I already am.

 

So...having got all that off my tits, I give you....today's fit!

 

 

 

Deets (Click to show)

 

 

 

Suit - Suitsupply (Soho cut, Carlo Barbera Super 130s)

Shirt - Rhodes & Beckett

Tie - Patek Phillipe

Square - Henry Carter Irish linen

Watch - Stowa Marine Original

Shades - vintage Wayfarers (ca. 1988)

Shoes - Carmina (Rain last)

 

Funnily enough, I was accosted at an outdoor café this morning by a lady who insisted that I must be a barrister, because I was wearing a "barrister suit". Well, I think that's what she said. In retrospect, maybe she said "barista". For the record, I am neither.

What elegance! Compliments. I really like the cut of the lapels. Anyway, Carlo Barbera remains one of the best in the world.

Love the suit, Coxie, you're looking smashing today. I quite like the tie, too. A winner today for sure IMHO.

^ Actually Jason I left home with your tie on, but swapped it out for the Patek because yours didn't seem to "pop" enough against the suit, which is pretty strong.

 

I'm taking this what-tie-to-wear-with-the-suit question over to the Noodles thread, as it could start cluttering this one up. Thanks all for your feedback.

@Coxsackie Great suit Cox, bally good show! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Regarding the tie a solid would be top of my list, burgundy gren' perhaps? (See you over on planet noodles)

Certainly goes to the very top of my Cox fits, very impressive!

Especially admiring this tie. A distinct color.

I like this fit, with the exception of the PS which I think should be darker to complement the tie better. As opposed to Stitchy, i don't min pairing the tie and SC, the tie is som much darker that it doesn't matter that they both have busy patterns.

I told her that I will dress however she wants me to since it's her b-day and she picked out everything. Nothing fancy.

Not bad, and I kind of like the blue on blue on blue. Shirt is not to denim-y to me...

This is just awesome, Roycru is one of my favourite posters - talk about having a personal style and being comfortable with it....

As many have said, tie not all that good, but suit is really nice. I have a very similar suit that I just got (not from SS though). Trousers are still with my tailor to get slimmed a little, so I might not get to wear it until the autumn....

Today is a not-so-casual Friday....

^ Interesting flare and low gorges on the lapels, Pingson. New? Old? Bespoke? I suspect the latter.

 

Note to self: must.....kop.....plain.....charcoal.....suit.
