I don't know anything about tree decoration but I think the actual tree might be a "Silver Tip". Branches are sort of flat and sparse. They're hella expensive as far as xmas trees go. Not sure if it's a California thing.

Dear Klaghorn,

I'm sorry if I missed it, but did you say how much i.e. which percentage linen is in the cloth of your beautiful blue suit?

Do you have a steamer to eliminate wrinkles in the linen cloth, and if so, what brand?

Thank you.

No idea how much linen but it's gotta be at least 30%. And I embrace the wrinkle. It's the only way to love linen. (So I don't bother steaming it)

Hella...now that's a California thing! You're right about those trees. We got ours yesterday and when I saw the prices on those I asked the guy if that price includes free delivery and decoration...his response was, "no shit, huh".

Thanks, Clags! Your glossary looks like a pretty good shopping list an aspiring noob...

Sorry for the terrible photo on my first submission to this thread, and the messy hotel room (I travel a lot).

These pants are freshly tailored, looks like I need to hem them up just a teeny bit more.

There's good and bad here.

The good is that you jumped into the thread and new posters are always welcome and appreciated. The bad is just about everything else.

1) That shirt doesn't belong anywhere near this outfit. Or any outfit. It is itself a contradiction and should be banished from the kingdom to be made an example of to other shirts like it.
2) It looks like you split up a navy suit and a charcoal/mid-grey suit. Maybe you didn't, but it looks like you did. The pants are passable as such, but wearing a suit jacket as an odd jacket is sick and wrong. Find a blue blazer and lighter-mid-grey pants to form the foundation of this look. Less structured shoulders + wider lapels when you go looking for that blazer would help. And most around here like patch pockets or tucked flaps, at least for the blue blazer, to keep it from looking like a suit jacket. Your call there.
3) A TV fold white linen square is too formal for the rest of the outfit; reserve it for when you're wearing one of the two full suits with a plain white or blue shirt and conservative/formal tie. And get some corners showing and a little bit of asymmetry when you do so it's not just a thin white line.
4) The shoes look too square-toed to me, but that might just be personal preference talking.

Hope that helps, and keep 'em coming.

@EFV thank you.  The shirt is Kamakura. They do make a nice ocbd with great collar roll (this new one seems even softer than older versions).   I do not know how to reply through the "thumbs" comment area.

The blazer made me do all these bad things ;)

Interacting with Christmas decorations on a cold (for here) day.  Dunn & Co Harris Tweed jacket, L L Bean OCBD shirt, Brooks Brothers tie and sweater vest, Ralph Lauren Rugby pocket square and Polo trousers, and Allen-Edmonds shoes.......
