That's blue fresco? I assume 520? It looks grey in the photo. Your shirt also looks grey striped, except the cuff, which looks blue. I assume everything here in real life is blue?
post #5552 of 13331
Yeah, both blue. The fresco is a slate blue, though.

It's deadstock Edwin Woodhouse.

Fancy.

I admit, I like they grey version. Though it's hard for me to imagine how all the blues work here IRL.

If we're talking about grey/blue fresco, a quick good taste question: I have bought a length of London Lounge PoW with the intention of using it for a blazersuit, but I have no ideas about trousers I would wear with it (picture courtesy of unfunded liability trend). What would be in good taste, or should this just be a suit? The check is quite large and has no overcheck.

I think that needs to stay a suit--a glen plaid's got to be a lot bigger and bolder for jacket use.

Also, whatever the photo looks like, my fresco is distinctly blue. In real life, it could not be confused for grey.

Yes, suit.
post #5557 of 13331
Agree that it needs to be a suit. Here's mine from Steed which I posted in the A&S Ex-Pat thread the other day.

Ha, I'm not going to judge myself. Why don't you tell me what you think? Did I ruin my credibility as a judge here?

Oh look! There's a man even smaller than Foo sitting behind him! Haha jk.

Great ensemble Foo. Love those lapels.

Well, your scale works for you, but I would want to use my own sugarbutch's Graybeard™ scale:

Two Graybeards: Not just in good taste, but an example for all men who aspire to stylish dressing

One Graybeard: In good taste

Zero Graybeards: Thanks for the effort, but please try again

With the assumption that you're wearing a DB and not an SB with aircraft-carrier lapels, I would give you 1.5 Graybeards. Very nice.
