I just assumed CP was wearing a white OCBD + repp tie. You can't really tell the weaves from that picture.

If my initial assumption was correct, it's quite Ivy/trad.

Recommended reading that may change your view on this sort of look:

Yes sir: a plain, Brooks Brethren OCBD and tie

Grey Harris Tweed coat (unlined) from the (long defunct) Crimson Shop in Harvard Square.

Of course my walk in closet look like this, he, he. Sorry, this is one of the best vintage shops in the World; A.Marchesan at Odengatan 74 in Stockholm, Sweden. This is where I bought the coat.

What other colors?  

i can't tell if you're having a lend of me.  Red SC, black vest they're for livery, uniforms and other one offs.  But after 2-3 years on this board u can't not know that. Do you think they're in good taste?

A stroller? I have heard tale of such a thing but have never seen it in action.

I'll say. I've been in very few RETAIL shops that nice, much less vintage/thrifts. And I've been in a LOT of the latter.

Thanks, gentlemen! A bit unexpected TBH, I thought this one would generate quite a bit of ehmmm 'un-love'.

Picked up the tie many years ago from Ebay and it had been sitting in my closet ever since. I remember when it arrived, I thought " wow, this is one ugly tie..."

I guess if it wasn't for this week's FC, it would have remained unused for ever: this is actually the first time I've worn it. So thanks to @An Acute Style my tie has finally come out of the closet ;)

BTW, on seeing the fit pic here on SF, I feel I should probably have gone for a different PS, but oh well...

The vest is brown corduroy. I don't own any black clothes outside of a pair of black bit loafers. I wasn't having a lend. If my outfit was all white, what would you paint what color? Honest question. Lastly, good taste isn't usually my aim. I appreciate it, but find it too confining.
