I never said anything was loud, that's where I think you are confusing things. The whole fit is bright. Bright like a light bulb, bright like a summer day. This cannot be explained away. Bright fit plus bright orange tie = CM suggesting a different tie. Live wid it!

Olive for @venividivicibj

 

Olive tie FTW. Works also best with the shoes, I'd guess.

(For non-native speakers: what does 'reindeer games' mean?)

Stupid or pointless activities.

Enjoyed only by a specific clique - and often makes no sense to those outside that clique.

 

I think (and I could be wrong) the etymology is linked to Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer. Hence the insider-outsider divide.

There is definitely an aspect of that in it, yes. Does come from Rudolph if I'm correct. The other reindeers won't let him play their reindeer games, but when he becomes a bigger person (reindeer?) he realizes the games were stupid anyway.

I feel my time spent here is validated.

I think you're referencing a non-existent orthodoxy. You're free to dress by this principle, but the notion that a "bright" outfit should have a subdued tie is hardly canon.

I never suggested it was. My advice is entirely my own opinion. Opinion that I believe to be grounded in hard won experience and background, but opinion nonetheless. I stand by my advice and I think it would have elevated your fit as evidenced by my photoshop attempts. You are free to disregard these suggestions (at your own peril IMO).

 

Also, I'm beginning to think a thread entirely of photoshopped fit suggestions might be interesting. Reindeer games indeed...

The last man to go down that path has blood feuds with a small New York boutique, an international French luxury goods house, and a Neapolitan "trouser artisan."

Ugh! I forgot about that thread. I don't want to be associated with anything called "foofing".

Noice.  Collar is a bit too cutaway for a sports jacket fit imo, but fit is elegant all the same.

 I generally admire and seek to emulate your sprez, but the white shirt really is the odd man out here, particularly with a casual red silk knit.   IMO 

Lose the tie or change the shirt for blue perhaps..  The saturated top block v the earthy southside worries me too, but I don't have a proper sense of the whole from the 2 pics.

Damn nice SC
