And how's the Vanda silk? I've not tried their squares.

Nice indeed.

Thanks! I love the moonbeam. It's soft, but still feels substantial. I would not consider matching trousers in this fabric at least, as I think it feels too soft. Would be comfortable, but feel like PJs. 

I've only tried one try from Vanda, that I think got a bit too thick. Will try another type later. The squares I've got from them have all been good though. I now have 4 different kimono silks, and they are all quite crispy, and folds nicely. Wouldn't hesitate to buy more of them.

I've got the blues because the summer + 2015 is a impossibility in this godforsaken place called a nation and a home. And it does not make things better that I feel the jacket is too short.

Tie your Tie from Shaya at exquisitetrimmings
Kimono silk PS from Vanda Fine Clothing
Saint Crispin's shoes
Jacket in Harrisons Moonbeam

Leaving aside the slubby nature of the tie, I think it offers insufficient contrast to work with the rest of the pieces you chose.

We'll see if I was able to fulfill the theme in an attractive fashion. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Suit - BB Fitzgerald
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - BB
Cufflinks - DVVS, NYC
PS - BB
Shoes - C & J










Is the suit brownish IRL? On both my phone and 'puter it looks very gray.

Tira, would have voted for you, but don't do social media, so not on Facebook. Sorry.

Ironically, now that you're not really posting anymore, you've figured out how to take a good picture! smile.gif

The opposite problem of Stefan88 above. Too much contrast with the tie in a fit which is otherwise low contrast.

It is a rather grey-ish brown IRL, with a tan overplaid, so yes, it falls (just barely) in the brown camp. It is, however, much lighter in weight than my dark brown suit in current rotation, which was not an option today, as it is warm and muggy here in NYC (and that suit has the thinnest of blue windowpane overplaids, which would cause consternation among the proletariat).
