Not the usual whnay. format, but...

And before anyone can comment on the "neat tie with a SC," know that it is wool/silk/linen, so it usually looks off when worn with a CBD suit.

I really like your sister's dress.

Thanks for the kind words. Even if they aren't necessarily directed towards me, this is a thread about taste, so I'll take the points.

In the event she turns out to be my sister, I'm going to need recommendations on a good tailor in Alabama.

A bit rumpled at the end of the day.

Well, I guess Cam Newton is used to wearing tights, so...

I believe this is attempt number 3 from me. Obviously a jacket / trousers ensemble again, but hopefully one that passes muster. 

Forgive the misbehaving pocket square- it rode up a bit in this photo. Pretend it's an inch lower (and not encroaching on the lapel.)

 

A smaller, low-quality shot, taken at sundown. Gives a better sense of the tie knot in proportion to the collar.

 

 

 

Blue oxford with a cutaway collar 

Donegal tweed sport coat

Cotton trousers in goldenrod

Brown garza grossa tie

English madder pocket square 

Russet captoes

(Not shown) navy OTC socks with white pindots

I think you need pants with better drape and which will hold a crease.

Thanks for the tip, on point as always man. Incidentally; I'm actually living/working out of an island laboratory right now and haven't had access to an iron in almost a month :embar:. The only dry cleaning shop on the island suffered a fire just before I arrived! Rumpled trousers aside, do you think this worked?

You're wearing a coat and tie to work in a lab on an island so sparsely populated that it doesn't even have an iron?

I mean, I really like wearing coat and tie, but I don't think I'd be wearing either in such an environment.

FWIW, I agree with SB. The pants are the problem here.

Yeah...sc and tie seems a little overkill for isolated laboratory island...unless of course you are a James Bond Nemesis....

 

then it seems very fitting....

This is the best thing I've ever seen posted on StyFo and I've gone back to laugh at almost every foo.gif post I could find.

Tell Dr. Moreau I send my regards.

Countdown until we see a "- A StyFo Dude" tweet from Vox about this begins... now.
