^ interesting. I have to say that the shirt + tie combo says business to me so I would have worn that with a suit.
Appreciate the hommage with the backseat picture.
One of the reasons I posted it. I know it's outside the norm a bit, but the wool challis tie works well with the herringbone IMO. And the pencil stripes are definitely BD, but not as formal as a solid or end-on-end. Thought the textures and stripes made it slightly more casual/rustic. I'm meeting with a prospective client in Birmingham (read: the sticks) this afternoon, so I thought a suit too formal.
I have a length of unfunded brown fresco that I have been meaning to make up as double-breasted next year. Also, a Prince of Wales brown flannel, either as a double-breasted or three-piece, is further down on the list.
It just doesn't sound like a suit to me. Think about it for a couple of minutes and try to picture it - what occasions would you wear a brown herringbone flannel suit for?
i hear ya, but i think you need to consider that i do not have "occasions." i just go to work and wear what i want. if its a nice looking suit, and it looks good on me, well then, the occasion to wear it is whenever i feel like it. is that so bad?
