Top half is great.  But the bottom needs work.  I don't mind the jeans but certainly not with those shoes.  I really like the jacket, deetz please.

No amount of sprezz / don't give a toss / unorthodox quirky rule breaking can excuse them.

I almost picked up a pair of those yellow slippers when I was in Morocco, but I didn't think I could pull them off. They look great on T1 though!

That's sad. hopefully they'll come around and start making them again. Since we can see that the lapel width is increasing, even in the fashion world, we will hopefully see the same thing in ties. I generally like my ties to be 9-10 cm wide.

The sales associate I talked to in the Clifford St. store said that they would only produce 8cm for the foreseeable future, but in practice that means only this F/W collection and next year's S/S collection. After that, there were no real plans as of yet, so hopefully they come around to producing wider ties again. Drake's have a MTO program, so in principle you could order any tie they have in their collections in what ever width and length you want at a slight markup (~£30 or so). Still that would put the ties around the £140 mark, which is really expensive compared to other MTO tie makers like Vanda, Hober or even Cappelli.....

The good thing about the production of accessories is that it's easily altered if needed. Let's hope the market (or a substantial enough part of it) will start demanding slightly wider ties smile.gif

Something equally simple for a Wednesday . . .

Try to work some warmer/earth tones into your fits. IMO that will work better.

Thanks, I don't really have any because my wardrobe is very CBD oriented (this is my one fun suit). My ties are all navy, grey, black, and burgundy. I think my next tie will be the chocolate brown grenadine from Chipp.
