Id stay with solid SCs. Ymmv.

Yes you can.

Yo







Colors are better represented in the 2nd and 3rd pics. Socks were chosen by a couple of 5yo's.

Awesome…then I saw the socks.

The sox have handlebar mustaches on them. HANDLEBAR MUSTACHES!

Oh boy! Well, now that I know that....they're even more terrible...but at least they're funny. I'd ditch that PS too, but that's just my opinion.

Okay - I am still just a beginner but I couldn't say no to a chance to wearing lots of things I would normally be told not to wear here! So here's my entry (my first competition!) to the Pitti Friday Challenge (from which I have cross-posted this).




Suit: Brioni
Shirt: Attolini
Tie: Vintage
Coat: Brioni
Hat: Borsalino
Scarf: Liverano and Liverano
Slippers: New and Lingwood
Pocket Square: Turnbull and Asser
Sunglasses: Moscot
Cigarette: Karelia omé super slims
Umbrella: Swaine Adeney Brigg
Gloves: Dents (peccary)

Please note: It is summer here so I should get extra points for dressing in winter styles in the middle of summer!

Yo. Feedback is welcome, of course, but I know the shirt collar's a bit lifeless and the trousers need a press and a little less room in the thigh.

I think the issue is that I'm pretty skinny, and those are close-fitting sleeves on a loose-fitting body. I should probably get the waist of this taken in a little to clean up the fit through the back.
