There's some irony in this...

AAS, if ever there were a need for a solid blue shirt...

There is a busy Sermoneta-shop just in front of the Spanish steps. Most gloves for women, but also some nice pairs for men.

It's warm today in Shanghai, and I took a walk to ZARA store to try the hat :)

Yes - is there a rule against that?

 

The textures actually seem to work quite well together, at least for me.

I think Elio should be awarded a special SF left-margin appellation "The Cuddly Curmudgeon".

Probably but who cares. It looked good. It was just some major seasonal contrast.

Good suggestions. What are "rims" in this situation? I only know about "20-inch blades on the Impala" type rims.

Cheers!

 

Easy explanation, @jcmeyer: if your feet are your wheels, than "rims" would be your shoes.

It wasn't perfect, but sometimes less than perfect is okay.  I have a couple of paisleys, some knits, and hopefully, a soon to be arriving rust neat that would all work better, and no doubt they'll be given an outing in combination with this suit over the winter. :) 

 

BTW, I should just add that I really like what both you and @DiplomaticTies are bringing to the forum which is, for want a of a better term, a touch of contemporary dandyism and idiosyncracy. I think this place does very well for the mainstream classic fits these days, better overall, in fact than it used to in the old days, but it has been lacking some of that eccentricity and adventure recently.

 

Looking very much forward to seeing this beauty returning to the forum, @FlyingMonkey

Thanks for the appreciative words, too. Pretty sure that our kits are not to everyone´s taste, but that is just fine. I think there are certain principles and guidelines we all can agree on, but that doesn´t necessarily mean we need to all do the CBD thingy day in, day out. Even the more so given the fact that we come from different backgrounds, both socially and economically. All in all, it´s about enjoying getting dressed up and chatting with other guys feeling alike.

People have this odd aversion to pleats because they don't understand them and think that they just make people look fat and that they are old-school.

 

Pleats can be extremely flattering on anyone if the trousers are cut well...and look especially great on trousers with a high-rise. I would recommend trying a double pleat on your next pair of trousers. Single is acceptable...but double is much preferred. 

 

This.

New tie today; thanks @SpooPoker and @NewYorkIslander

 

Great combination overall - i probably would have swapped the monks for some brogued wingtips, but that´s being nitty-gritty on high standards. 

 

One from the archive today, forgot to bring the cam along...

Are you pointing the pants specifically? Cause I can't see any extra fabric in the jacket (which is a Havana)

 

The trousers are size 46 where I use to buy size 44 (which I need to widen at the waist), because I wanted to see if they would fit better.

I may have it tailored a little closer to the leg.

@Dennis Great! The SuSu Soho suits you very well.

@Braddock, that is some genius mix-and-match going on there. Absolutely shouldn't work, but somehow does. Bravo.
