Absolutely, darker blues are harder to work with. That said, this is an excellent example! It seems to me that your shirt collar is wrinkled by the collar of your jacket being a bit tight?

This is what we need: more imaginative psychologizing of outfits.  We can collect the comments in a volume called Die Anzugdeutung.

 

Jesting aside, the lapels aren't THAT pronounced; I've seen bigger bowing on not-unrecent Paul Stuart/Samuelsohn coats.  It may not be 'on trend', but it looks damn good on you.

I like, I like. :nodding:

 

I'm probably just mentally scarred by one of the speakers at that conference I mentioned in my last post; one of the speakers gave a presentation on trends in cosmetic female genital surgery. There's only so many slides of this you can take before going quietly crazy.

This might not find much favour, but I decided to go with the white shirt and... tieless. It's a beautiful sunny evening here in Cork, so I thought I'd just be relaxed and less formal. I don't think ties are required tonight, so hopefully this will be ok.

Looks great!

Bless you.

Even if I have worn striped ties before (and posted here as well) I have been warming up to them recently. I plan on getting a few more over the next few months. They seem to be particularly useful with the type of checked jacket I was wearing today, the smaller scale houndstooth variant, that are hard to pair with neats and other patterned ties.

i too am warming up to stripes as of late. hope to pick up a few over the summer.

I saw you post in Noodle's thread and there were some outstanding ties posted there. I've been drooling over this Vanda tie for a while now, ever since I saw @tchoy wearing one

It's a great tie. I semi-DTO'd tchoy with this fit (a few weeks ago).

Arigato. Yes, that would be an explanation, but if anything the collar is too big irl. Hm.

Sounds like fun!

Dear god... I once had to walk out on a paper backgrounded by a series of self-portraits by an artist increasingly ravaged by Alzheimer's -- creepy as hell, and a little too close to the ancestral home -- but I haven't (yet) been confronted with anything truly approaching 'trendy genital surgery'.  No amount of cucumber water and stale grapes is going to help with that.  I can only admire your restraint in going quietly crazy; I don't think I'd have kept my freakout tacit.

 

But, to return to the point at hand, I'm not sure whether some of the pants we've been seeing in the 'Creepy Images' thread aren't only possible to fit through genital alteration.  Something for our anthology, perhaps?

Of the 20 something pages of catching up I had to do, this look kicks ass. This is classy and those peaks make me think FU, and I am all for FU jackets.

Could care less what the nitpickers say, frig' it, I'm biased towards peak lapels now. One of the best looks I've observed in a while!

Thanks. It's linen/cotton Zegna acquired from fellow SFer tubs.

In general, my writings abide the following maxim:

In the absence of profundity, try verbosity (bullshit baffles brains). In the absence of both, try brevity (better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt).

Very kind. Thanks!

@Mr. Six - you need to be posting more fits more often.
