I don't ever recall you being into the bright tie/bright square thing, is this a recent development?
I guess, it is also the summer - they seem to be well suited for the 105 degree heat

Agree. "Too" is the price of attempts at distinction.

Anymore one comes here to practice "commenting," to avoid the same mistakes (distinction?) when it comes to oneself.

It' enough to blink and say, "yes," "no," "no," . . . and then figure out the reasons why.

I bet whnay.'s looks pretty good in natural light. That picture is really exaggerating the tonal contrasts.

Decided to go biz cas today. The colors in the square and stripes are not that matchy-matchy in real life - still figuring out how to best take pics:

I agree. This combo may be undermined by the poor light / inadequate camera. W any chance of a reshoot?

My camera sucks, I'll try again if I can find a photographer at the office.

Gaz - what color is the tie in the last pic? That suit is sweet.

Can you do another one with today's paper? smile.gif

I like what you are going for but the contrast between the tie and jacket may be too much. Perhaps a richer brown, a la Slewfoot's fresco project, would be much better.

Suggestion from someone who still knows very little about photography but has through trial and error learned how to take better pics with an iphone - Instead of doing the mirror thing, stand facing an open window. Turn the phone around so that the screen is facing towards the window (I know there's a camera on both sides, but the camera on the screen side is not as good). If you're lucky you'll be able to see enough reflection in the window of the screen that you can aim at the right stuff. Take 6 or 7, moving the phone around a little bit. Pick one and post.

Gaz - I love suit #3. What's the fabric there? Seems like it's kind of tan and gray at the same time.

and this brings up another point, the quality of the pics many times is as much a determinant of the type of criticism as the outfit is. A very nicely lighted pic goes a long way to making an outfit look great and vice versa.
