HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 5166  

post #77476 of 78717
Upon second viewing, I think Cox's tie works well in this context. Perhaps not what I'd choose, but that's not the final arbiter, is it?

For a moment Don I thought you'd gotten highlights in your hair! :)

 

Anyway, me today: Similar enough to Wednesday, though different shirt / suit / tie / shoes. Tie is somewhere between orange and yellow, I quite like it, and I imagine one thing that will jar with others is the pocket square - I went very plain. Any other suggestions to what I could've used?

 

 

 

 

 

Hand blocked wool challis madder macclesfield tie

Hackett shirt

Canali belt

M&S Collezione suit

M&S Sartorial shoes

Random silk PS.

Honestly speaking, I don't know with exactitude. I buy what what fits me and even If I go a size up, I take it to my seamstress who adapts the jacket to my morphology.

Not much is taken in.

Today's outfit. Sorry guys for the copious pictures. I hard great difficulty this morning deciding which pair of shoe to coordinate my outfit. As you will notice that I had different shoes on. I finally settled for the shannon boots.

Yeah I thought that, but I felt it clashed with the yellow and the light blue. If the shirt was white then sure. But I wouldn't wear that tie with a white shirt. ;-)

Please forgive the dark burgundy specks, which actually reside on the inside of my phone's camera, rather than on the clothing...

A white linen hanky looks better with a light blue shirt than with a white shirt imho. Some say (Foo) that wearing a white square with a white shirt looks like you have a hole in your jacket.

Which of course is nonsense - I have ever only heard that statement from Foo and there are an almost infinite number of counterexamples suggesting that it works just fine. It may not be the most creative solution, but saying that it doesn't work is just BS

I find one of the easier ways around this is to have the seams/edges of the square up rather than the fold.

I don't agree completely with his sentiment either, just like I don't agree with his opinion that a white pindot tie looks like you have holes in your tie. However, I don't think a white hanky clashes with a light blue shirt at all, if anything they complement each other rather nicely.

Yeah I probably should've gone with the white.
