If you need to ask, perhaps a Manton or Foo thread would suit you better.

This post on another thred embodies what a Pcock is. For what he's wearing? Maybe. Combine that with his comment? Definitely.

How do you mean? I simply asked for clarification.

 

Would you have preferred someone gave you a similar answer to the one above when you asked this:

Ok I will see what I can do. First attempt, new waistcoat (vest) linen RL Rugby, Polo RL Chinos

I appreciate your playing, tho.

Thanks.

Your objection is noted for the record and overruled.

As for the other two things, name them and enlighted us. So I know where the boundaries are. As I go screaming past them.

I think the shirt is what is wrong with both outfits. IMO there is no way to dress up, down or around it. It is beyond saving.

... I am not convinced because DuChamp, London is an excellent 'peacock' company, using historical designs (I think) from the historical 'dandy' period of fashion.

 

Here are two more approaches... grey waistcoat (Burberry)

 

 

or a different bow tie (Brooks Brothers)

 

 

The pocket square and jacket depends on the waistcoat

I wasn't seriously looking for an answer, quite obviously. My whole style is FU.

Brioni is also an excellent Italian brand that has at times made unwise stylistic choices... No brand is exempt from mistakes especially those of the peacock variety.

Next time I wear it I'll post a pic of an iconic multicolour stripe Paul Smith shirt, complete with Tahitian shell buttons. Interesting to how it takes.

Hacking Jacket: that is a crazy bold shirt typical of the Duchamp line.

But the three tie/vest combos posted so far have fallen down due to, among other things, the neutral colored vests.

Ain't no such things as halfway peacocks.

The vest looks like you are apologizing for the shirt.

Try a navy or black vest, and a solid or small patterned tie that is mostly one color of a minor stripe in the shirt.

Then the shirt will make the strong impression it is seeking to make.

I'm afraid I agree. It makes the wearer either look like a jockey or a refugee from a renaissance fair... I have some Duchamp ties and squares but even their accessories range from the awesome to the hideous.

Lets go for it, I've two black vests and will try against a knitted silk tie (RL purple label)

Here's DuChamp that is beyond doubt ... DuChamp Swarovski crystal cufflinks and shirt studs for my Boss DJ:

If they don't look great its just the lighting. Really happy at acquiring a set.
