    Long time lurker.

    Picking up my P Johnson wedding tux & shirt soon, can't wait.
    Also got a set of Albert Thurston braces and Le Noeud Papillion bow tie.

    Will hopefully remember to post some pics.

    Edit: Also does anyone have any advice regarding what to wear under the shirt as I don't want to freeze my nuts off.
    If I wear a singlet under I was thinking grey because I find you see it less than a white one.

    For Henry Carter today.

    I could actually do a very similar look, with my Christian Kimber boots, Ede and Ravenscroft light grey flannel suit and Drakes grey cashmere tie. It is a very wintery look, maybe a little too matchy for me.

    Pretty sure this chap works for Brunello Cucinelli (just in case anyone is interested).

    I was never that keen on the Papillion gear. Last few I bought from these guys - highly recommended (from me at least) http://www.thecordialchurchman.com/ r.e. singlet - wear a three piece, problem solved!

    Agree with your sentiments a burgundy or forest green tie would have worked better IMO

    Interesting discussions. I really like it in real life which is of course the best litmus test, and the matching was purposeful of course. I'm usually pretty honest with myself on the times I have a miss and agree It would have worked well with both the green and maroon cashmere knits but I wore a green tie yesterday and the maroon just lost out. Would have worked well with white shirt like above also.

    I contacted thecordialchurchman.com but they never got back to me, it also just so happened that Le Noeud Papillion had 40% off the bow tie I was after..

    I really don't like 3 piece tuxedos

    I like yours better than the one I posted, as it has a subtle pattern and texture. You do not miss often Jason, and today was great.

    That is virtually identical to the PJ suit I had made which I have on today. Except I have a little more break...

    thanks CEP - Officially kicking off in July in Sydney albeit we have snuck a few out-of-town guys in early

    No no - we come and do all the fittings and 2nd fitting to get the pattern correct

    JM's comments are correct - think about the amount of fabric in the trousers vs the jacket

    x2. So over the whole 'washed my pants one too many times' look.

    Way too much pocket square as well.

    Bear in mind this photograph is a few years old, this chap works for Brunello Cucinelli and is wearing the company's look from that time period.
