Are you some kind of sartorial magician?  Are you palming a purple tie or something?  lurker[1].gif  Let's see it.

That ain't purp, bro (at least not in that picture).

And, yes, I would hope that any outfit which is prefaced by "Fuck it" would be received in the lighthearted spirit with which it was proffered.

quick question

 

Can a lightweigth/mediumweight tattersall pass for summer? 

 

this mofo is not heavy at all.

I'm not sure exactly where to draw the line between tattersall and a general check but this seems to be on the autumn side of things. That due to the cream background which you see more often on Viyella or brushed cotton trying to look like Viyella - both of which are cold season cloths.

This would be better IMO

I see your point. The shirt isn't a brushed cotton though and thought It could pass as a year round shirt.

after taking a second look at my shit it seems to be much whiter/brighter than the swatch I posted. Would it pass then? 

post #131 of 177
A real brother wouldn't try to pass. Brother.

First time I've ever worn this suit. Looking at the picture, I think that the pants need to be taken in a bit in the crotch (a little too much fabric there) but otherwise, I'm pleased with how it turned out..

The suit does look good, Kai. Maybe a more substantial cuff on the pants?
