This turned into a lower-contrast fit than I anticipated. So I tried to add a pop of color with the square. Did it work?
Also, this seems to be the week for new shoes. These are the Carmina x Skoaktiebolaget GMTO Polo suede semi-brogues that were delivered last December. First time on my feet. I've said I'm not much of a suede person which is partly why it's taken me so long to try these out. One thing I have noticed is a close correlation between the quality of a shoe (as approximated by price) and the initial comfort level. These Carminas are rubbing my heels somewhat this morning and I may need to add some moleskin patches before they break the skin. The Edward Greens I wore for the first time Monday were completely comfortable all day, as have all the EGs I own. I have owned Meermin shoes and those were brutal to break in. One pair that I gave up on never truly got to where I could wear them all day without damage to my heel.
Anyway, new Carminas on their first time around the block:
Thank you, @Mr Knightley . Most of my ties come from the op shop. This one is a vintage Talbott. However, I've found a lot of Mallory & Church in a paisley madder that I like a lot (the more subdued ones). There's also a maker that I've only been able to identify as Jermyn Street that makes nice ones. Also, John Comfort.
