All this talk of db suits gave me a jonesing.

Sorry for all the pics, trying to figure out how to get a consistent picture.

@WC, suit is blue, brown or gray? either way, i think a solid suit would be better for that tie, just my opinion.

I reached for a solid tie, but this one is new and I wanted to take it out for its maiden voyage. Suit is gray. I am getting some new suits made in solid navy and solid gray, both worsted. I am going backwards in my dressing and filling out the staples I never took the time with earlier.

This is actually a somewhat painful experience. I realize now that if I had taken the time to get well made "basic" clothing I would probably have a better sense of my personal style. Instead I chased after interesting clothing that I didnt really know how to wear properly. The end result is a lot of money thrown at clothing that I really do not care for now. Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise as I now get to enjoy the process of having some beautiful clothing bespoke. By the time I fill up my "staples" and begin to move into "interesting" clothing I will actually know what I am doing.

Not to derail the thread any further, but..  I understand your assessment of rustic, however, in absolutely no regard do these look "homemade":

it is a nice tie.

i know the feeling. i have been/am on a similar route. thankfully, i can still use almost all the items i bought in round 1, they just are not the kind of things i can wear very often or it becomes, oh, its the guy that wears "that" thing every day.

I like this. For some reason, I have been moving away from using these kinds of light colored ties for warm weather, but I don't know why or have a good reason. I certainly think it looks good here.

I like the light colored ties but the weather is really not cooperating yet.

thanks, dopey!

its still cold here, but very sunny today, i went no overcoat for the first time in a few weeks i think. i thought it was bright enough outside for the tie. not that i am truly that particular about seasonality. i mean, i try and be within reason, but i would likely wear this tie even outside of spring/summer if i was in the mood. plz not to kill me for admitting that.

Looks good IS. My summer tie wardrobe has nearly no yellow or gold in it, might need to add one similar to that.

Really like the jacket, what is the fabric? Do you subscribe to the idea of a warm weather and a cold weather blue jacket?

lol @ ed.

thanks, WC. i would not call this tie gold or yellow though, i think its more of a beige/tan.

i dont know what the fabric is technically called, i always thought of it as crepe. i do subscribe to the idea of different weight jackets for seasonal wear, i just am not in the position to really do that. this jacket for example, i think is more of a spring/summer jacket, and i have another that is more f/w/4 season wear.

Maybe "homemade" is a bit harsh. Still, there is something very "Eddie Bauer" about these. I usually wouldn't let myself be so glib, but I'm too tired at the moment to explicate.

In the spirit of positive feedback, I would like to praise Foo's reasonable response above.
