En garde, monsieur! (That's brilliant, by the way - witty collar action, wide use of i-gent-ness with the tie...this is tough!)

 

So, linen it is then.  And no messing around.  45C today.  So it's a three piece, fuck it!  Styleforum demands...

 

 

And in response to request for "inappropriate sprezzatura", well you called it...aside from the bright PS...

 

Yes, navy contrast stitching everywhere.  Because fuck you. :)

 

 

DFIH super tie-boner; because you know you want it.

 

 

 

Linen-appropriate canvas spectators.  Plus random sock-rocking, because.  Just because.

 

 

And the killer blow: dinky cufflinks, and offensive timepiece.

 

 

 

This may not be the best linen of the day.  But I reckon it's the most by square yards, and the cheapest, and the nastiest sprezz too.  Give it to me good. bounce2.gif

 

 

On the hoof. (Click to show)

 

On a day like today, all 250lb men wear three piece suits.  Probably.

End of the day...holding up, but definitely wrinkly.

 

 

 

 

Warning: And special nasty bits, just for you, Del-Boy. (Click to show)

 

 

 

Wrinkly back.

 

 

And better still, wrinkly sack.

 

 

 

Modest deetz (Click to show)

 

 

Suit: 100% linen, local cack-handed tailor

PS: silk satin, no brand

Shirt: Tyrwhitt

Cufflinks: don't know, gift from (now ex-)wife

Tie: Givenchy, gift from someone else's wife (cause of parenthesis above)

Socks: Mazarin

Shoes: Cheaney for Herring "Henley"

 

Indian Ocean, palm trees: God

I wore my linen yesterday as the weather was much better than the forecast for today, which was awful, only to get rained on! It hailed about an hour after this!! censored.gif
Wrinkly linen for trousers, shirt, coat and pocket square. I made the bow-tie myself out of some old linen/wool mix trousers that had worn out.

I understand you are new to braces - please notice that your brace buttons are wrongly placed - the button should be placed where your pleat meets the waistband on each side, the other further out to the side of the hips! bigstar[1].gif

You've got milder summers and winters than I, at the price of an extra two days of rain. And you actually have four seasons (whereas my spring and autumn amount to less than 3 months).

The small Wang allowed me to shove an extra Drakes* in there. Waiting to be struck down by the gods for double stuffing. Right, have at it; I've given you enough openings.
