    Looks good. I don't think the 5+ inch tie is CBD though

    Thanks, but the tie is 3.5" wide, I just knot it like a french person with the rear blade showing.

    on phat guidos style, he almost always seems to be as conservative as possible* excepting one feature.

    a navy suit, white shirt but a knit tie
    or grey suit, plain brown tie, white shirt but with a hat
    etc

    it seems like a very simple way of dressing but maintains interest due to that one element and always looks well turned out.

    not DTOing but inspired by it.

    *excluding red pants

    I completely agree. I had mentioned something similar earlier in the thread (not specifically about him, but in general), and think this is a very good CBD "rule" for newbies like me... And I find in hindsight that a lot of the people whose style I admire here tend to go by this, consciously or not.

    I won't make a habit of posting non-suit fits here, but it's Friday, it's cold, I've no meetings and historically country clothes were semi-acceptable on a Friday if you were off to your country estate for the weekend. I'm not sure my Victorian cottage backing onto farmland quite counts as an estate but hey [​IMG]

    I like this but there's something wacky about the shirt collar. Looks maybe like a problem with the fusing that caused the stripes to fuzz out?

    Could be. It is not edge-stitched, so there's a line of stitching right along where that line is. It may just be that I pressed it poorly when I ironed it.

    London banker look today, must be the rain. Somehow, pictures do not do justice to this outfit - contrasts and colors coming out all wrong... oh well.
