This reminds me of George Best's critique of Beckham '"He cannot kick with his left foot, he cannot head a ball, he cannot tackle and he doesn't score many goals. Apart from that he's all right."

Thanks for the comments, I agree about the jacket and the trousers - and the legs are a bit too slim, making the balance poor.

This is one of my oldest suit still in use, bought it in London many years ago. It has been to alternation several times, as I have gained and lost kilos. I'm kind of attached to it, like an old friend and will continue wear it every now and then. Don't often wear it with sky shirt, though.
I agree trousers are a bit too short, and yesterday I bought buttons for braces; that will make them to hang a couple of cms lower.

...and for those who might be wondering if I was wearing trousers, here's a picture with my favorite relay box, on the corner of Melrose Place and Melrose Avenue.


Napps ivory silk half-lined three button sack coat with welted edges, patch pockets and a hook vent (just about as Ivy as Ivy can be), Brooks Brothers tie and PPBD shirt, Jim Thompson red silk pocket square with elephants (yes, I'm one of them), Trafalgar blue and red surcingle belt, Polo Ralph Lauren Madras trousers with my Hamilton 992B pocket watch in the watch pocket, Rugby Ralph Lauren red, white, and blue socks, and Bass white bucs with blue shoe laces.



Enter this to the Friday challenge!

Off to a country where there is summer. The UK weather is at its top turvy best at the moment hence the suit at this period of the year. Oh well..... enjoy your weekend guys. smile.gif

Each time @mcobinad posts, I have the urge to comment that his new fit is my favorite thus far! I love the suit and tie combination, and the watch and book go well together!

 

Who makes the shoes?

What am I going to talk about? The awesome fit? Royal oak offshore? Rich dad, poor dad?

Bravo!

Don't like the conspicuous label on your Mobutu glasses though lol8[1].gif

Very nice jacket @Koala-T

Thanks! It's one of my current favorites. Wish it were a hair longer though.

Mcobinad is really rocking it lately. There is still the dash of flash but the colour combo is outstanding.

I can't emphasise enough how R. Kiyosaki has inspired me. This is the 10th read of this book. Finished every book on the Rich dad series.

As for the conspicuous display of the eyewear brand, doing that in solidarity for our fallen African heroes LOL. Still wondering why that idi.. S.S mobutu sold his brother (iconic P. Lumumba) to the Belges & the U.S. Betrayal at its height. frown.gif

This statement exactly I was expecting. As for me, I don't see any element of flash at all. I'm just me. Maybe, when I pose next to my Bentley GT Speed for a photo shoot, that according to SF would be considered the highest degree of flash. I limit it to formal wear display on SF. That's all. smile.gif

Agreed. I really like @Roycru's look there.
