    Cheers - this cloth (the Fleet) is a non-reflective type, and actually I don't think they make it any more - I got it as an end of roll on the website, and knew it was just enough for a 3-piece for a guy of my height (short!). I am a cyclist, but I'm not likely to be wearing this suit on the bike!

    I think this is better than anything else I've seen you post. As you say, some might have nitpicks, but it looks good to me.

    what most people who condemn white shirts seem to neglect in my opinion is that the colour and complexion of one's skin also plays an important role. sure there are certain tie and/or suit instances where a pale blue shirt would have been more favourable over white, but equally important to me is the skin. white shirts with tan skin looks terrific.

    I'm not sure what to think about the whole combo, but that jacket is very nice. I'm looking for a fabric that looks exactly like that one (tan gun club with light blue overcheck). If this is bespoke/MTM, would you please share what book does it come from?

    Acrid? Why you no mention you're in Dallas? I could have saved you from the terminal E chili's.

    Quick turnaround, Tits. Don't worry, I know Dickey's has the goods.

    Be honest. Have you ever said this IRL? :)

    +1. That's my reason for no longer wearing them except once a fortnight or so. They wash out a pale, Nordic complexion.

    My favourite jacket from Schlasbergs (1970´s). My fathers wool tie from the 50´s. He was a teacher and used it as his "sport tie" when he was skating or skiing with the children. From Bröderna Andersson, Borås. New moleskin trousers from Glengarnock

    The button stance is too high for you and cuts you in a strange place. Secondly, the socks are awful.

    Today's choices are simple to the point of severity, but I need a change on occasion from my usual over-the-top style. As it is, I've not worn today's suit in about a year (according to the dry cleaning tags) - happy that it still seems to fit.

    Suit - BB GF
    Shirt -Tyrwhitt
    Tie - JAB
    Cufflinks - Metropolitan Museum of Art
    PS - Robert Talbott
    Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC
    Overcoat - BB
    Scarf - Aquascutum
    Hat - Selentino

    About 3.5", and it has a pointy end, too. (I know, I know. That's what she said...)
