Ha - I was just thinking what a great suit and beautifully shined shoes, but a shame about the awful tie... looks like the kind of fabric that works much better as PS IMHO. Hermes, @Crat? In any case, not my cup of tie.

Suit - BBGF
Shirt - BB MTM
Tie - BB

Cufflinks - Turnbull & Asser
Shoes - Magnanni for Bergdorf Goodman
Hat - Selentino

Scruffy Crusty looks like he is up to no good, or at least being a bit mischievous.

Agreed. It's clear I need some navy birdseye in my life.

Crusty is always up to no good - Scruffy Crusty was just more open about it. satisfied.gif

Not sure if this should go here or in the casual WAYWRN, but here it is.

Rainy day at an art fair this weekend. Still found some excellent pieces to take home! This is a new Washington jacket from SuSu, I'm quite impressed with the fit and the fabric, no alterations.

Señor Crust, your former self wins this comparo on the strength of the outdoor setting which shows off the suit to much better effect. Your present self prevails in the facial hair category, though. smile.gif

That facial hair configurations suits you, Crusty.

FWIW, I think you should shorten the sleeves as well as your trousers a bit.
Also not a fan of the light brown shoes here, tbh.
Deets on the tie, please?

I do agree with your points

In a rush to leave the house - forgot the square.

I like your facial hair, crysty - but the suit is better fitted now (or maybe just better pressed).

Thanks. The suit, six years ago, was a little tight - today it is not. It is also fresh out of dry cleaning hibernation today as well, so that may affect your view. I do agree with SB that the picture from six years ago, the color of the suit is more accurate to real life in that photo.
