LOL, I have planted the seed that a new camera is necessary. And, I'm watering it daily..

Heh! The shirt is whatever colour you want it to be smile.gif

As for the camera, all I can say is that the seed is planted. thebrownman only provides water, no bovine-produced fertiliser ...

As a person who prefers patterns being not more than textured solids and simple stripes, I think the tie and hankie are pretty gaudy especially against the background of a plain jacket and shirt. Then in the photo with your coat on showing the pinstripe lining and collar ribbing, it all works out nicely with alternating pattern and solids layering which brings balance. biggrin.gif

Yeah, blahman, I completely agree. They are pretty gaudy - I think pretty much the only gaudy items I have. I tend to go for the textured ties, subtle patterns and stripes 95% of the time but today I thought "Stuff it!" smile.gif

 

Thanks for the kind words and comments, by the way. I always enjoy learning about why it all works.

 

My only regret with the coat is that it was only available in black when I got it. I never would have thought about wearing a waxed cotton coat over a suit jacket (this one is a biker's jacket, for crying out loud!)until i saw the pics in all the #menswear tumblrs and realised that it could work pretty well. This is the first time I'm wearing it out over a suit and it won't be the last.

Did all those who care get the Modern Tailor sale code? DSX477, FWIW.

Just two days and already noticed a massive difference. Skin goes shiny by end of day compared to my previous moisturiser (i.e. it doesnt mattify) but feels nice and light

I tired the Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum a few times but was unimpressed the shave creme I have been using for a while now is the Christopher Hanlon shave creme, very effective in terms of shaving and keeping you skin in shape.

I don't rate the Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum either. Ultimately, with skincare products, if you care enough, it's best to go consult someone who knows, particularly for those with problems, it may be beneficial to see a dermatologist.

I used to use Valetudo shaving oil from shaver shop because its 100% natural, fragrance free and supposedly can be used for moisturising as well (simply wipe off excess after shave, don't need to rinse away). But then I thought stuff it and now I just use King of Shaves sensitive from any old supermarket. Works well enough.

No prob. Ever.

Oxfords are my fab weave!

Lunchtime DJ stroll again (why do I always keep on going back there?). Saw some new (?) very interesting MJ Bale knit ties for sale.

Saw a few pointed end solids and delicious looking bi colour weaves (looks like a bit like coarser and less delicate version of the E.Zegna pattern).

Yah yah thanks all for your responses to my Oxford Cloth question. I needed a plain/formal white shirt for weddings, interviews, occasional work wear, and I was debating whether my preferred Oxford Cloth was appropriate (this is for a spread collar / no pocket or placket sort of configuration). In the end I decided Oxford Cloth would be fine.
