Will you look deeply into Manton's eyes and whisper sweet nothings about tonal variations in tie patterns while noshing on fusilli al tegamino? Please say yes.

No. The whole point of sitting adjacent is so that I won't have to look at him in his weird navy-navy, white-white contrivance.

That's not to say there won't be any footsie.

This does not change my opinion. Things can be well made and still be assembled for a pimptacular appearance.

Precisely.

I hope that someone, somewhere, is assembling the complete StyFo writings of foo.gif into a book. Guaranteed bestseller.

Okay, a British pimp. On my screen the coat appears a vivid purple with a magenta stripe ... perhaps my monitor pimtasticized it. But each to his own. Fred shouldn't -- hopefully doesn't -- give a damn about what I think.

LOL that might be as I have worn and posted the suit and tie a number of times without comment from anyone. biggrin.gif I could also be that the light made
it a little more electric than it is in real life.

As stated above the tie is from Henry Poole you may have seen it in their shop. Simon's father was the source. I believe it picked up the afternoon sun and gave it the "UK Pimp" look. I have worn it a number of times and no one has ever refered to it in that manner. LOL You might have your screen checked for color, the suit is navy as navy can be.

So in the 30's and 40's and 50's when all those guys like Gary Cooper and Cary Grant wore white shirts and white pocket squares they were wrong? Nah. I don't buy it. I agree with most things you say Foo, but not that one.

Lighting and a monitor's color ability -- or lack thereof -- can do amazing things.

Fred, do you remember when I posted photos of my R.A. DB suit in a diagonal pinstripe? As Yachtie put it, "His ass got handed to him on a platter." Still, I love that suit. I wouldn't wear it in Souix Falls, Jackson, or Charlottesville -- thankfully I'm not often there -- but it works just fine in San Francisco, New Orleans & London.

It's not a matter of "right" or "wrong." As far as classic dress goes, the pairing is certainly conventional. My point is that it's ugly and bad.

I think that's definitely the case.

The shade tha the blue appeared in the photo was a lot more Richard James than Richard Anderson.

A red chalkstripe is a little out there and not something that I like but the only pimptastic thing about that photo was the color balance.

As Foo says it's not a matter of right or wrong ... but personally I think those fellows looked terrific.

so your point is that it is purely your opinion, and what you find to be aesthetically pleasing. not any kind of convectional wisdom or accepted rule of any kind.

am i understanding this correctly?
