    I must be a troll because my hair wasn't going anywhere, at least for this interview. ;)
    I have one coming up with another company as VP of sales (they do lab instrumentation). At that point it will become a serious consideration, but it'll be a hard decision. I've been growing it for the past 10+ years.

    My default for this suit is a simple white slim cut shirt with a black (almost) skinny tie. It's nothing special: Ben Sherman, 2.75" width.
    However, I just moved and thought I had cleverly stashed these in the same bag as my suit. When went to iron my pants at 10:30 last night they were nowhere to be found and the dark blue shirt was all I could find in my size that late.

    Thinking of trading the black tie for a red tie over the white shirt. Keeping it simple with a solid color and slim profile.
    Also contemplating going clean shaven, but that makes me look rather young.



    Orgetorix, I'm definitely digging the tie!

    Not sure there's anything about this fit that Manton would like.

    Henry C, that's awesome.

    Monkeyface: what evil, messed up world are you living in where it's not appropriate to wear a PS?

    Happy 4th to all!

    This is my first post, and technically it's pretty much 'what are you wearing for about 20 minutes today', but I wanted to put this out there since I just picked up this suit from a tailor here in HK and I plan to add a post to the HK tailors thread on my whole experience so others will know what to expect if they decide to travel down the road I chose.

    It's a bespoke blue VBC mohair/wool blend (it's bloody hot and humid here in Hong Kong so the weight of this is about as heavy as I'd want to go)

    I just threw in a white PS for the pics, but wouldn't be my first choice for this red/pink/blue combo

    Would love to hear what people think.

    Stay tuned for a much more in depth treatment of the suit and my experiences in the HK Tailors thread.

    Updated with a second pic.

    Waistcoat not long enough and/or rise too low - the belt Is showing (should never be worn with a waistcoat anyway) :bigstar:

    I love the color of the suit, but not feeling the shirt and tie. White shirt perhaps...

    Sometimes due to lighting, we can have a tough time figuring out if the suit is grey or blue. This is not one of those times. :D Ditto on only wearing this with a white shirt. And don't button the bottom button on the waistcoat!
