    Thanks for all the kind comments, they are much appreciated :fistbump:



    This is one of Vanda's so called "super" repps - really heavy silk and it ties a beautiful knot.


    Toda's fit is x-posted for the Friday challenge - the only brown SC I hadn't worn this week. Again, lighting sucked, so the detail photos actually have better representation of the colours.

    Brown is for Farmer Friday Challenge (pace ernest):

    [​IMG]

    Tie is actually navy cashmere, and the square is a reddish/brownish/with-other-earthy-colours madder; apologies for the dark photos.

    Shirt has heretical double cuffs.

    EDIT - thanks for the large number of thumbs-up on my last post; I just caught up with the thread and noticed them. Yeah, I like that suit too.

    When they make pants like that, do they automatically make the crotch bigger because the wearer has to have huge balls to wear them in public? :embar: (Just kidding...I think you are rocking the pants....really cool fit though....but kids watching at home, this is not good for an interview...)

    Great color on the jacket. What's the pattern on the square?

    I fully expect mixed/negative reaction, but it's what I'm wearing today. :)

    This is the square (acknowledgements to Malford for both the square (which I paid for) and the photo (which I stole from his website)):

    I just think you need better jeans. Otherwise I'm OK.

    Could be, but I am both old and a dad, so I'm probably beyond helping. :)

    I agree about the tie/PS match but it's not the worst. However, the socks are a plus and entirely in keeping with your bold and cheery style, and you're wearing proper shoes. I'd call that a win on points overall. [​IMG]


    It is very red. Against another bright-ish solid suit it maybe stands out more (I'm thinking Duran Duran circa 1982). But try it with a grey flannel or PoW check. The texture is lovely, and nothing wrong with a bold tie now and then. Believe in yourself, man!

    Clags, that suit is just a giant. I am in awe of its fuckyouness.


    I know I've mentioned this before, but as well as you do CBD, you should really let your inner country gent out a little more often. The warmer textures and tones really suit you.


    That's an awesome jacket. I don't especially like how the collar is wider than the lapel, but that's a niggle. Really great look and I love the tie and PS.


    Absolutely inoffensive, lovely tie. What's wrong with you? Man up! The stitchnderkabuse is taking its toll on your self-esteem, clearly. [​IMG]

    The AEs are better made, but the Florsheims are a good style for that look. Alas, you often get what you pay for. Email shoebank@allenedmonds.com with your US size. Specifically, they had some good deals on cordovan recently (ask about those as they don't come in the normal list), and I picked up a "Bradley" shell cordovan NST for $299. Needs some TLC, but man what a steal.


    Deserves points for the sheer gall of it. Good for you.


    I don't think I like turtlenecks. But this is immaculate.


    Quote:
    That's probably the least "challenging" outfit I've ever seen you post. In a really good way. Super country-tasteful, yet still "you". I love it.


    Spooky. A few hours before you posted this fit, I ordered exactly that square from Mr Malford. No surprise I like your fits, really...


    Oh good grief. Your extraordinary range of tweedage is a soothing and consistent balm upon which enjoyment of my daily SF read depends. Today I feel very let down. Come on, Butch, for goodness' sake! It's just so wrong to see you like this. Like walking in on Beyonce naked, then realising she's taking a shit.

    Seen as Sugarbutch is posting denim, I thought I might as well post mine. Mimo, avert your eyes.

    I like the shawl collar cardigan a lot. I´m searching myself for a brown or navy one. Who is the producer?

    Jeans and a tie are the Devil's work. But as cardigans go, that's rather nice. :)

    I wore brown for the challenge. I hope this jacket is brown enough.
