Starting off the week with something summer-y and nautical. Hope you like it. Shirt is a contrast collared shirt with a blue base and a white collar with double cuffs. Accessories are gold and shoes are tassel loafers. No texture photo though due to me being late and lazy. Tie is a blue base with white dots.

I also just noticed how my tie is askew..Sorry.

  Have a good week gentlemen.

I like the color scheme here.  Pretty classic.  That watch is too big.  The shoulders are too wide.  The sleeve follows your arm until it gets to the top of the shoulder and then goes vertical for a bit.  Not a good look.  The pants legs need to be hemmed properly.  Cuffing them under is not a good look.  What are you using to take your pictures?  The quality of the photos makes it hard to give advice sometimes.  For example, I want to say that the jacket has a nice sized lapel.  Wide, but not too wide.  I can't be 100% sure because of the quality of the picture.

I was going to say, it looks like something you would see from Boggi or Boglioli. Very Italian styling. Interesting find at Daffy's.

That's about right.  It is made in Italy.  Daffy's sold a good amount of discount retail from Europe.

Hello sir,

Thank you for the advice once again. So no-go on the watch, OK. Didn't realise the shoulders were big, so thanks for the observation as well. I'll get the trousers hemmed next time I head to my tailor. I use my laptop's webcam. I am still a student, so unfortunately I don't have access to a better camera and my cell is no good as well. The lapels on this blazer is around 4' last I measured it. Light in my room is not the best. In regards to the colour scheme, I'm glad you like it! I'm trying to do more classic pairings just to be on the safe side as well. Thank you for taking time to give advice.

With many thanks,

Hal

Details on the cloth used for the suiting, good sir?

Cool. I spend a fair amount of time in eastern Finland. In my experience Joensuu is a sartorial wasteland.

That was in 'Thunderball' IIRC and it was in Nassau.

Always thought it odd that Fleming would have Bond dressed unimpeachably most of the time then have him commit these occasional faux pas. Mind, that was written in the early sixties. I wonder how many odd looks someone would get walking around Nassau nowadays during daytime wearing a dark blue suit, shirt, tie and open toed sandals?

I think the point was, that (the literary) Bond wasn't really interested in clothes. He just wore what his status prescribed, but opted for comfort when possible. Unthinkable for almost any movie Bond (Timothy Dalton was closest to his literary counterpart, I think), but in the books Bond is more cold-hearted killer and less bon-vivant.

Exactly! It's easy to forget the books. Bond was not a nice guy in any way. Most of the quips, the suits and the cultural know-how came from the movies. Intersting to read how Connery was taught to dress by the Director of the early Bond films. Connery was basically a bit of a lout from the docks. Even the Rolex Sub he wore early on belonged to the Producer.
