I think the term is "twill tape" or "edging tape", my tailor put it on (the fabric came with the suit) and I didn't really care :embar:.

This thread has delivered the goods. I expect a close race.

The best FC I've seen thus far.

This is really great, but it's hard to trump the uniform challenge imho.

Suit, shirt and tie all from Boggi Milano, which stocks all the middle-of-the-road CBD stuff.

Cleav, thanks for making a challenge that's compatible with my limited wardrobe.

PRL blue blazer, Brooks Brothers shirt (I tried to make one sleeve look longer than the other.  Is that "sprezzatura"?), J Press tie, Gucci pocket square, Orvis cord trousers, and Allen Edmonds Lombards......

Gentlemen, many thanks for supporting the Italian CBD Classico con Sprezzaturra Friday Challenge.


The poll is open and closes 17th March.


Grazie, Mille Grazie!

o/o, Pingson and Shen got easy votes. Stitchy just got one too.

 

My reasoning for those choices is more about the overall vibe given off rather than specifics of the outfit. I really do think this look only works when carried in a particular way, and on particular people. This particular challenge is not just about the outfit itself I think. Those guys managed to get the balance right IMO.
