Ring, Luxire, Vanda, Eidos, Vass

 

 

Too many patterns up top in my opinion.  One or two of the elements need to be solid.  Shirt collar spread could be wider.  Nice color palette, though.

I like the patterns, they aren't too busy, and each give a unique enough texture that looking at each is interesting without calling too much attention to itself.

Some great fits, gents.  Last week I dug out one of my oldest suits and 15 year old Church's Diplomats on a rare cold and frosty morning:

This one doesn't quite work for me. The patterns match in scale and density far too closely. I assume that you are going for a low contrast top half, but this one would have been better with a darker jacket for sure (and contrasting trousers). As it stands, the jacket (which I'm not a fan of in general) kind of fades into a haze. The shirt and tie alone might be forgivable with, say, a solid navy blazer but wouldn't be ideal. The PS is interesting but offers the only significant contrast in pattern. That's not good. Four patterns are tough to pull off and this one doesn't quite do it. The navy trousers confuse this look more than help it, IMO. Then again, most of us agree that navy trousers are difficult to do. That was your heaping of unsolicited critique for this Sunday. Amen.

I wear a blazer more often than not it seems, but I wanted the casualness today. Seeing what the cubism exhibition at the Denver Art Museum has to offer.

antique MOP cufflinks a friend gave to me

Very nice and basic, apart from the tie. I don't like the color and how shiny it is.

I believe every fit I have seen of this suit pattern--Minnis?--has been paired with some variation of a solid light blue shirt. While it's certainly worth a try, I don't think that classic combination can be improved upon in this case, cliche as it may seem.

Meeting with a named partner in a large firm. Did a little bit to much Tom Ford I think. Meeting went well and earned the firm's business. So it works.

I definitely have packed on a few pounds. Took 2 weeks off and was in New Orleans where I ate and drank well. Regardless it's good to realize after posting pics where some adjustments can be made.

The other obvious area of improvement for me is camera angles. I know things are a bit more snug as of recent but I know there are angles that are more/less favorable.
