Great!

 

Thanks - this is all mainly because I had nothing to do with the photography! :D

 

On the tie: I have no problem with colour and I'll always defend the use of more vibrant shades than some here. What you can't see in the photo is the cobalt blue socks and the way in which the colour of the tie is subtly picked up in one of the minor colours of the square. I don't know if that makes it better or worse for you! It's not a tie I wear often, and only ever in summer, but I think this shade of brown suit can deal with the brightness of the blue. The only other thing I'd wear it with is my lightweight cotton suit, as in this picture:

 

 

Anyway, I love International Klein Blue and I'd love to get a suit made in the colour if I could get the fabric...

What's the width of those lapels and your suit size (to get perspective on how big those lapels are)?

Twisted the tie a bit. It's 3.1in and lapels are 4.25, so it needed the extra width.

@Claghorn really like your jacket! Is it a suit or a sc?

Worn as a suit there, though I think after the novelty of a green suit wears thin, it'll be worn mostly as a jacket.

Thanks? I'd genuinely be interested to know what you're comparing it to and why you think this looks better. I've posted pics with this suit before. See below re details.

Love the color of the suit Six, where from?

 

Steed MTM using Dugdale sharkskin (DP3517--had to look it up). Looking good yourself today! Navy birdseye is such a great fabric.

The tie lends itself to that SC much better, IMHO (almost makes me want to buy an electric blue tie!). :)

Ah, a fine example of the traditional British 'lobster slipper'.

 

I'm glad to see someone still appreciates the classics.

 

Cheers,

@Mr. Six

No, two different suits. Why do you think the one I wore yesterday looks and fits better?
