I like the first of those looks better. In case of second fit, I'd say that the overall contrast between tie, shirt and jacket is a little bit too small. Choosing white shirt instead of pink one or some contrasting tie (green or burgundy) could be a better choice in my opinion.

Shirt is red stripes, btw.

The Friday Challenge this week is "Pitti" - what one might wear while attending the twice-yearly menswear show in Florence, Italy, that showcase of extravagant sartorial invention as practiced by the attendees. I must confess that I don't think that I have the sense of relaxation that many of the attendees have - my attire is, for better or worse, usually carefully thought out. (Whether or not I had a brain fart while thinking things out I leave to the viewer's discretion.)

However, apparently this season, suits in shades of royal (or at least lighter-than-navy) are in style, and colorful accessories are always seen in the parade of peacocks at this shindig, so I thought that today's attire might fit the bill for the Friday Challenge. As it is, it also suits my evening's plans, as I'll be attending a members' reception at the Whitney for two new exhibits, and attire is always varied at these events.

Suit - Ede & Ravenscroft
Shirt - Lewin
Tie - Andrew's Ties
Cufflinks - London Badge & Button Co.
Braces - Paul Stuart
PS - Robert Talbott
Shoes - C & J

@blekit, firing on all cylinders. Try a white PS next time and keep it up.

The tie is a bit too red for my taste, and my opinion may not carry much weight, but this is the best fit of your to date. :slayer: 

Specifically, the shirt collar, lapel, tie width proportions and the jacket length and the waist suspension look great to me.

Full-on Our Man In Havana today.

 

Textures and details (Click to show)


Suit: Brooks Brothers

Shirt: Proper Cloth

Tie & Square: Cordone 1956

Hat: Brent Black/Panama Hats of the Pacific

 

The tie and square are on their maiden voyage. Like all unlined 7-fold ties, this tie ties a tiny four-in-hand, so I defied orthodoxy and tied it in a half-windsor.
