Thanks.  There are some people that just hate navy trousers and some who don't like the "Northern Lights."  A lot of the critique is that they aren't versatile for pairing with jackets and ties, which is generally true.  This jacket as a midtone works with either very light or dark trousers, but since it's lighter weight than either my winter weight cream flannels or my heavy-duty Oxford greys, I usually go navy trousers or green corduroys.

Beautiful combo fairplay!

@DonCologne how wide is the knit tie in the above fit?
post #41525 of 44077

There are options for those who don't want to ask people to take their picture.

A well known men's style blogger (and poster in other groups) once mentioned that he uses a Gorillapod to hold his camera on top of a newspaper rack near his office.  I got a Gorillapod.  It looks like this holding my camera on top of a newspaper rack.....


.....I found out that I could wrap the Gorillapod around signposts.


I also found out the downside of Gorillapods is they are bulky in pockets.  They work for the blogger because he carries his in his briefcase and because he has found a place (the newspaper rack near his office) that is the perfect place to take pictures on a regular basis.

Gorillapods come in many versions to hold either cameras or mobile telephones and should work for anyone who carries a briefcase or who wears rather loose cut jackets with poacher's pockets on the inside.

This.

And not just because I wear cargo shorts, flip flops, and socks with individual toes in all my outfits

I am a broad dude myself (jacket size 44 us) and I am always skeptical of how knit ties look on me, mostly because the majority of them are on the narrow side (less than 3 inches). I know that knits don't taper as much as so the mid tie width is wider than a non knit of the same max width, but it doesn't look right to me. On the other hand, i recently got a 3.25 inches wide knit tie that is a bit borderline too wide. You are impeccably dressed so I would be interested to get your view on the matter. 

 

cheers

Thank you. I won't nix the scarf, though.

 

I have several "evening scarves", with this one being my favorite. Very occasionally I'll even use a cream colored pashmina that I picked up many years ago in India (at the same time as the red one my wife is holding in the recently-posted picture). When I bring a scarf along it is for two reasons. First, I rather like it myself. And second, at some point in the evening, she will commandeer it from me to keep herself warm.

 

She is fond of pointing out that I am wearing long trousers, long socks, closed shoes, a shirt, a tie, and a jacket. She, on the other hand, is wearing (like last night) a dress made mostly of netting, some crystals or sequins, and very little else. And for some reason, the restaurant we ate at last night was unable to distinguish between the dining area and a meat locker. So in exchange for her wearing very little and looking fabulous, I bring along a scarf. And quite often she still ends up with my jacket around her shoulders. Seems like a reasonable exchange to me.

Indeed. The scarf itself is not for me, but it is in no way "wrong."Such is the beauty of the freedom to have stylistic differences!

Edit: as a single man, I cannot fathom such things (taking the preferences of others into account lol), but, all things considered, that seems like an eminently reasonable trade off 👍

My other knit ties are all 8 cm wide. In this outfit the lapels of the sport coat are on the narrow side and so the 6 cm wide knit tie works together with the lapels of the sports coat. The pattern of the tie is on the louder side and so the 6 cm is enough to be perceived.

 That jacket does induce covetous emotions...
