Tasteful enough?

You remember the other stuff I rocked with this suit (Glen with purple check)...

Pretty sure those ruby boots are not "in good taste" as defined here.

NYI - tasty as far as i am concerned. (tho i am sure the overcoat will be argued about)

It's an old Robert Talbott. I've never liked their ties or other clothing, but I have a few pocket squares in my regular rotation. Good silk, interesting patterns and colors, hand rolled edges.

NYI - that tie looks like it belongs to another outfit IMHO. Here's a somewhat similar fit that I did that I think works better because:

1) jacket fabric more rustic
2) shirt fabric and styling more rustic/causal
3) ps not white linen
4) tie not so earth toned and more contrast in pattern

I think NYR's outfit was fine - actually pretty nice, shoes and all.

Ummm...ok sorry just trying to help. I litter my posts with "I think" and "IMHO" to emphasize that it's all just my opinion and not to claim any superiority. Also the other time I linked myself today it was an example of what not to do. Sometimes pictures are useful in explaining things and I don't know other pictures as well as I know the ones I post. I link to my blog instead of posting images themselves bc I'm on my phone and can copy and paste links but not images.

I don't have a problem with unbel's self-referential pics, especially since he posts links which everyone is free to ignore. You're being too sensitive, Rambo.

Enough with the freakin flame wars already eh?

The thread was just starting to pick up again.

Maybe I am a little late on this but how do we kill the ads and sound that keep popping up? I hate having to hunt down the little screen. It makes me not want to buy whatever they are selling ever!

^pop ups? I'm not getting any. I think that's something you can control through your browser.

I like Nore's and NYI's, though I do agree that the tie is probably best used w/ tweed or woolen flannel, the boots are very bright, and the overcoat's fairly informal. The shirt, blazer and pants are just a little too formal for the tie, boots and overcoat imo.

Don't think the PS is too matchy. However, is it this shiny IRL or it those darn electrons again?
IMO, muted squares work better with tweed-ish jackets (e.g. madder).
Thanks. It's not very shiny imo. I think the flash made everything shine.
