Anyway, that's how I see it!
Thank you everyone for their kind comments. It's very flattering to be thought of in such lofty terms. I must say that I feel my looks/fits fail on some level a large % of the time, usually due to fit rather than concept. It is easier to portray an outfit well in a static image than in real life and I am lucky enough to a take reasonable photo. I think given the funds and inclination anyone can dress well & in good taste. All it takes is a well made clothes that fit properly in basic combinations, and well chosen accessories (guided by your tailor if you really have no idea of what works with what) . Having the flair to put unexpected items together in a tastefull manner is another step along the trail, but not one I think can't be learnt through exposure. I say that the good taste thread and this one should be interchangeable, if something is a success, peacock or not, it should be well thought out in tone, texture, pattern and fit, all of these things should be coherent, with the extremes pulled together by linking pieces, be it the texture & tone of a dark knit tie pulling the informality of raw denim through to the top of an outfit, or a suit in outrageous fabric tempered with non competing tones for accessories in a mixture of patterns & textures?
Just a thought.

all well said, and excellent points. after reading the bold, i am now sold. i retract my previous comments. at least as they pertain to TTO.

uhhh....apologies to those that remember my posts the other night (esp the person my question was directed at); drank too much while on the interwebs (never a good idea). anyhow, glad this thread is still going.

 

I'll have to remember to take pictures to post someday. I enjoy seeing the pictures and getting ideas!

This is a good sign.

How am I expected to derive meaning from ^^ this? The ambiguity is unsettling.

There is often a penchant to post without considering whether or not the thing being posted is appropriate - either stylistically or in terms of quality. To say "I want to, but I'm not..." is a good sign because it means that you've taken questions like this into account and it increases the likelihood that when you do decide to post something it will be appropriate and of higher quality than what you might post if you didn't consider this dilemma.

I like this statement. It is wise, and well-pondered.
