Maybe my very fit of yours.  Excellent pattern mixing and the color palate is tops.

Very nice.  I'd recommend a different shirt again.  I don't mind stripes on stripes, but this pairing is too busy to me.

Any feedback welcome!

 

Not my style, but looks good.  I think a different square would be better.  I think the royal blue clashes a bit.  I also prefer wider lapels and longer collar points on the shirt. Great tie.

Monday.  This jacket is hard to photograph. It's light blue and white, but looks gray here.  Pants are blue oxford.

You're quite right. I thought the script was red and I saw what I wanted to see. Oh, well, that's age creeping in. Still a beautiful watch.

Jacket is way too short + what AAC said. Tie is unique!

I'm not a fan of grey shirts, but in this outfit it simply looks amazing.

Yup, on second glance it wasn't an ideal PS choice. I find it really hard to find shirts with a decent fit/collar etc where I'm from, so I'm gonna try online- Kamakura, proper cloth etc. Does anyone have any advice re: online shirting?

Ideally, how much longer do you think the jacket needs to be?

Thanks for your kind words, and you are absolutely correct, it is a 5513 (a mark iv maxi dial from 1981 to be precise). As someone else said, it is not a watch forum so I wasn't going to go into too much more detail or start correcting people after their very kind words but well spotted and you're right to raise it.

I was reluctant about this tie with this suit and pocketsquare, but I think in the end they work. However I'm not 100% sold on the shoes - what do you think? Maybe some loafers or lighter brown oxfords?

@Blekit. Nice fit. I like the shoes because they complement the buttons.

@Mcmerc. The jacket imo is fine, just not classic enough for this forum. Ubu

Tie tie in itself is nice, but might be too informal for the suit.


A white shirt would have been better I think, but I felt adventurous:

Today is variation on a theme from yesterday. I've always wanted to see what a bow tie would look like with today's suit, and the elements came together such that today's attire is a tribute to little Ralphie Lifschutz, from Moshulu Parkway in the Bronx he came (and not even the right end of Moshulu Parkway, as my Bronx-born first husband would note).

Suit - RLPL
Shirt, tie, PS - PRL
Cufflinks - The London Badge and Button Co.
Braces - Paul Stuart
Vintage watch chain
Shoes - Paul Stuart

This is great inspiration for coordinating with a suit I'm currently having made up (my first DB for which I've chosen grey flannel from Holland & Sherry).

I just love how you've put it all together.
