If you wear a white only pocket square, folded, just showing, and with a white shirt only, you should get away with it as it can nicely break up the colour of suit and shirt. Try this for a little while and see if you still draw unwarranted attention. I can't think of a more conservative way to wear a pocket square. If that doesn't work, nothing will.

@FoxHound - 5'9 62kg - pretty standard height/weight. As for lapel width, Patrick selected that width, I don't know much about it.

Thanks for all the encouragement as well guys, it means a lot coming from people that I have only disappointed.

Blue Jasmine is a great film, strong story and cast delivers the goods. Pity the Mia Farrow white anting campaign being played out at present.

Not an opera buff but SSO tickets A reserve at the Opera House are over $100 these days, sigh remembers student price of $20 back in the 90's, live culture is not cheap, hence film being the dominant entertainment medium.

As someone who doesn't really like people either, going to the cinema these days does fill me with a slight feeling of dread.

However, going during the day when possible can be fantastic.

Saw Wolf of Wall Street on EXTREME SCREEN with only about four others in the cinema. Then saw Gravity at Imax with about six others in the room.

I agree with J-Ho in regard to the above.

A linen pocket square in either a plain colour, or with a small border in a slightly different colour (ie sky blue linen with a white border or white linen with a sky blue border) in a conservative fold with look pretty inconspicuous but will still help to break up the outfit.

I also agree that J-Ho's suit looks good, and that's a nice tie, too.

Wearing braces for the first time today. Very pleasant although I sewed the buttons onto my trousers slightly unevenly. I am wearing one of my fuller shirts, and the way that it billows and folds around the forks of the braces is a little irritating, but darts would solve this I think.

That's all I ever do. Mum says no.

Sometimes mums are wrong. Not often, just sometimes.

What's on everyone's winter purchase list? I'm sick of the hot days.

For me, so far:

Navy shawl collar cardigan from CT (very nice for $100).
Jeans
Rain Mac
Peacoat
RMWs
+ Maybe 1-2 new pairs of AEs
+ Mabe 2-3 new Luxire shirts with French cuffs (which I think of as winter-y).

Navy Shawl cardigan for me as well, can't decide if I should get a cheapy or spend some $$ and get the Drakes Cashmere one.

Navy 3 piece suit

C&J Tetbury boots in black

On the look out for some more cashmere scarves. HenryCarter getting any more? I've got a Grey one which is excellent.

Johnston of Elgin have some pretty good cashmere scarves and arent too expensive. Easy to find on ebay.

I have one that was designed for Hugo Boss but was rejected and ended up on ebay, so im probably one of like 2 people who own that scarf #fkyea.

Agreed.
Haven't we been through this? We should not let our women (mothers wives etc...) dress us. In the main they simply don't have a clue. My wife spends an untold fortune every year on flimsily make 'designer' stuff. And yes, I think she looks great but whenever I suggest she finds a decent dressmaker/whatever and spends some money on bespoke she looks at me like I have two heads. Or what about shoes. She thinks nothing of dropping $500 on a pair of heels that are a) very bad for your feet/spine/etc.. and b) only last a year at most. When I spend $500 on a pair of shoes they will be hand made and will last a fucking lifetime. And they will fit me, will not incur bills from the osteopath bla bla bla.
Try asking a woman to buy you a business shirt. You know, when she says 'what do you want for xmas' and you go, 'oh I don't know just get me a shirt'. You will never get a nice plain pale blue or white shirt. Some bastard monstrosity with stripes or checks or a weird collar in a garish colour. WTF is that?

A sports coat, lightweight tweed type thing would be nice. Or one of those rather fabulous Boglioli washed numbers. And a pair of navy odd trousers, maybe chino, maybe wool, haven't decided.
