Are all shades of blue automatically "cool.? Are there no warm blues?

Cream silk seems to be your standard advice, lately. Have you turned into :foo:?? ;)

Pockets squares always look too cramped to me in patch pockets. That's why I prefer to see SC's with 3 patch pockets worn without PS at all.

Indeed a very nice SC, @Poszetka . I have one in similar fabric, albeit in darker navy blue. The open weave makes it pill like crazy, though. Do you have that problem too? Anyone here with advice on how best to deal with pilling?

I'm OCD about not wearing a neat tie with an SC, too, so yes, I guess I'm a Ma:foo:fan fan.  Someone's got to promote decent standards here.  

 

re pilling, you can purchase a little roller with disposable adhesive tape for that.  There's an electric version that slices the excess right off.

From the challenge - Seasonal Incongruence

 

Growing a beard since winter is coming even though it's 27 C outside are not in congruence with the season.

Neither is the wool tie worn with the khaki suit.

 

Oh well.

 

Suit - Belvest in a cotton/silk mix.

Shirt - OCBD from Shirtonomy

Tie - Drake's wool/silk

PS - plain white linen

OTC socs. Should probably have gone sockless today.

Shoes - C&J handgrade dark brown suede

@Anden  so this is where the magic happens.  Very nice look.

The Friday Challenge is "seasonal incongruence" - to wear a combination of items that, by rights, shouldn't be worn together - summer accessories with a winter suit, or, in today's case, a wool tie with an unlined summer suit.

Suit - Phineas Cole/Paul Stuart
Shirt - BB
Tie - Drake's
Braces - Lewin
Cufflinks - Boston Museum of Fine Arts
PS - Ashear
Shoes - Stefano Branchini

Warm blue is called purple.
