New week, old suit, lurid tie.

Today's suit was my first venture into MTM clothing, some 13 years (and 20 pounds) ago. The suit has been altered a couple of times to accommodate the slenderer me, but still reflects its origins in the fullness of the trouser leg.

Today's tie was a folly I committed at Paul Stuart. I wear it seldom, but it seems to work (as well as can be expected) with the rest of today's attire.

Happy Monday, in any case.

Suit - BB MTM
Shirt - BB
Tie - Paul Stuart
Cufflinks - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Vintage watch chain
Shoes - C & J Edgwares
Raincoat - Burberry
Scarf - Ede & Ravenscroft
Hat - Weatherproof

Thanks chaps.  Yes, an overnight stay is the best option and that's what I do if I can.  The particular event I have in mind will be vaguely work-related, mid-week and about a two hour drive away.  I could possibly arrange to change when I arrive as it is a major City centre location.  But at the moment it is not appealing to me...

I just wear it. The whole after six "rule" is simply to convey that black tie is meant to be worn in the evening. It's not like people will be checking their stopwatches. :) 

 

Of course, it depends on what you mean by "well" before 6. If we're talking about noon, then I'd probably not wear it just to avoid being stuck in it all day. If it's like 4pm then it's reasonable to wear it.

Yes, I'm being anal, I know.  Actually, as the thing is 'up North' I could do what our friend Beau Brummel would certainly have done - decline the invitation:D

Yes, but Brummell died penniless and alone. :lol:
