Your outfits look great, just had a moment of man crush on the muscular chest.

Hah, I think that is the first time anyone has ever told me that! Thanks for the ego boost! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Yes,

 

Black corduroy suits are badass. Perhaps the only acceptable all black suit for non-formalwear. 

Agree. I have a friend who has a double breasted black corduroy suit, with brown MOP buttons. Always look amazing.

Cacophony not harmony-  like someone opened the piano lid and started randomly banging away at the keys.    I see yellow, red, green, blue, purple, white and orange.   There's no shame in frugality and discrimination.  After two or three, you don't gain points for extra colors, you lose them.    Second, you have three adjacent neat patterns in roughly the same size-  the visual equivalent of a dischord.  Third, the warm and cool don't cancel or complement, they compound an 'I'm going all-in' vibe.  Last, you've got tone-on-tone -  e.g two shades of purple, two or three shades of green, orange..  - reinforcing my impression of randomness. 

As for coherence, or 'forming a unified whole':  you have a rainbow, so there's that.  :satisfied:

 

 

  It's tutti-frutti ...color and pattern competing for attention.  Three FU pieces.  The tie alone would be too much (purple, orange and green, for Pete's-sake) but you have that attention-whore trying to upstage a purple, orange and white (shouldn't take a tie in any circumstances) shirt, and a shouty purple 'feature wall' cardigan.  Three or four fits-worth of color in one.  I know excess is your thing, but even so..:confused:

 

Thank you for your feedback.  If you're seeing all of these extra colors, I can understand why you're put off.  It sounds like you're not a fan of color.  I don't see any shame in embracing the rainbow.  Should we tell Mother Nature to tone it done some?  I think colors are beautiful and enjoy wearing them.  As I mentioned before, I agree with the closeness of patterns, but don't mind.  You gave me some things to think about which I appreciate.  That was much more useful than the "I got dressed in the dark" comment.  Thank you again.

Thank you for the kind words.

Gents, I'm looking for a pair of wholecut black oxford shoes, that would look right for my coming wedding and for work afterwards. Round or almond toe. I would not want to spend more than 600€ in these...

Any suggestion? I took a look at C&J and Church's but didn't find what I was looking for.

Unusually nice weather in the North means the debut of some new spring stuff, paired with the jacket that I've had longest.

^the beard does you well! @heldentenor

Thanks, Noodles--it began as an expedient when I was too busy to shave for several days in November, but I think I'll keep it for awhile.

Thank you for the kind words.  

One of the most gracious replies to a strong (but not unfair) critique.

Well done @An Acute Style.

+1 on CM   May not sound like it, but  I'm a fan too, AAS, and apologies if I came across as harsh.    You push the boundaries, and imo that's fine in this thread.  It's not Whnay's, after all.

 

 I don't understand the Mother Nature reference tho-   Women haven'tt got a clue about menswear.
