    The placement of my head in today's photo was entirely accidental, and only royal or noble appellation usually linked to my name is "queen". [​IMG] , but thanks for the thoughts, at least.

    I love cotton khaki for the summer, but it's not so easy to pair up with.

    Trying this out with china blue shirt and gold tie to bring upsome colour. Thoughts?

    I'd pair the jacket with more casual trousers (cotton or linen) and a simple plain summer tie (or sans); suits the jacket better and give it a more relaxed look. Can't really see the shoes, but they look a bit heavy and wintery.

    You are not Mafoofan, sorry. I don't think you can refer to yourself in the third person yet with a "stamp"

    He could have written "I like everything except the boutonniere" but this is more interesting; is it not? EDIT: Haven't see Manofkent in a while. I can only assume this guy got him.

    Technically, I am referring to myself in the third animal.

    The onset of summer weather has started in NYC - it's warm and humid today, with threat of rain.

    Today's photos reflect a last minute change of accessory - switched out the handsome but ill-considered silk pocket square for a white cotton one - sometimes, simpler is better.

    The color is better in the seated photo than in the standing.

    FWIW, and have at it, fellow iGents.

    @ Threadbearer - I see you finally got your green grenadine. Did you go for Kent Wang or Hober? Great look today if a bit autumnal!

    Simple enough. He's acridsheep, so he's been putting a sheep stamp on things he likes rather than say that he likes them.

    Good - more interesting
    Bad - takes up a lot of space where a simple sentence would accomplish the same thing.

    No shit, but why is he acridsheep? Does he really like wool, or does he, um, love sheep?

    I like this tie. I need a blue and white stripey one. Send it to me.

    From wikipedia: Sheep (Ovis aries) are quadrupedal, ruminant mammals typically kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates. Although the name "sheep" applies to many species in the genus Ovis, in everyday usage it almost always refers to Ovis aries. Numbering a little over one billion, domestic sheep are also the most numerous species of sheep. Acridsheep are a particular species of sheep with a penchant for sarcasm, violence and Adobe products. Do not taunt Acridsheep.

    The shirt and tie (and suit) are all Brooks Bros. of various vintages - the shirt was MTM many years ago, the tie and suit are much more recent purchases. Shoes today are C & J via Barney's.
