Details (Click to show)
* Suitsupply
* Tyrwhitt
* tie from Embassy of Elegance
* Berwick shoes
 
 

 

Followers of this thread know that I tend to fall into the "Dennis Walter" school of dressing were colours, textures and patterns can mix and a fit has to be judged on the overall balance rather than what is supposed to work, but this is just too much even for me. I like suit (even if I would have preferred even stripes) but it is so bold that I think you need to calm everything else down and let the suit steal all the attention by itself. A solid burgundy grenadine tie could possibly do the trick.

 

The tie is very nice though and would work perfectly with a slightly "calmer" navy suit.

My presence in this thread will be seriously curtailed for the present. Early Sunday afternoon, in running to catch the elevator in my apartment building, on my way to brunch, I slipped and fell, and have sustained two fractures to my pelvis. Happily, neither of them require surgery, but the more serious fracture was to my right acetabulum (the socket for the ball joint of my right leg), which has made it very painful to put weight on. I must not put any weight on that leg for the next six weeks, until the fracture heals. I am now the proud owner of a walker (what in the UK is known as a Zimmer frame), and must make use of it for the next several weeks. I will effectively be homebound.

You gents will, of course, carry on splendidly without me, and I will cheer you on in that regard.

Very sorry to hear that, Crusty.  I hope your recovery is swift and your downtime relaxing.

Ouch.  Sorry to hear that.

 

However, if anyone can make a Zimmer frame look like an elegantly stylish accessory it's you.

 

Here's to a quick recovery.

 

Cheers,

Thank you, Pravda, but those fabulous Downton Abbey dressing gowns (as Hugh Bonnevile as Robert Crawley, Earl Grantham wore in the series) are way too warm and way too expensive for my poor lot. (Check out New & Lingwood's web site for sticker shock in that regard, fabulous though such garments may be.) Were I to post photos of myself in my "loungewear", one might mistake it (and me) for the denizens of Jacob Riis's book "How The Other Half LIves" at their leisure . . .

Sorry to hear of your injury.  I count on you daily to let me know what the weather will be like before I head out the door :)  Get well soon!

Wishing you a speedy recovery! I hear Brooks Brothers is starting a line of Golden Fleece medical acccesories... 😉

Wishing you a speedy recovery, @upr_crust.  If I do make it to NYC in a couple weeks for the Proper Kit shindig, I'll bring by some takeout :)
