    Did I miss when having 1+ inches of cuff showing became the in thing? Is that just now on the up portion of the hype cycle, or am I that late to the party and this is the tail of it?

    Up in the polar vortex with double-digit negative temps. F*** this. Layering up, dammit.

    +1 (assuming you're refering to cuffs in general, not just the >1" kind)
    And if that was indeed the case I'd have way to few cuffs in my arsenal. But then I guess it's more a seasonal thing and come spring/summer there'll be less ('fewer', I know)?

    Having 1+ inch of cuff showing is different from having 1+ inch cuffs. One is intentional, the other, I think, not so much.

    Shirt is a P Johnson MTM; both suits as well. Tie and PS are Drakes. Shoes are 4-year-old C&J Westfields.

    Mickey sticker on mirror belongs to my 4-year old bundle of joy.

    Don't be afraid to wear a pattern with another pattern. The big picture I was aiming for is that the jacket and shoes are lovely, and would be great in a rig that skewed a notch or two more American -- in which case something like a burg/navy repp would make more sense than a grenadine (or a knit).

    Thanks Stitchy.

    And your sense of style has ramped up dramatically since I was last here. Kudos.

    CEP - Awe shite, thanks man. :)

    tits - interesting. i had not really noticed that. i can say that personally my jacket sleeves are all the same length, and some of my shirt sleeves are probably a tad longer than others. its not something i really get picky about as my sleeves end up rolled most of the day anyways.

    The german winter is more like the spring. So I decide to wear a spring/summer outfit with a silk sports coat from Oxxford clothes and new canvas spectators from Herring.

    My bad. After seeing what seems like 80+% of trews cuffed, that's what I associated it with. It was pretty early over here and I was still "sober"...

    I was about to put on this crazy gold / yellow Canali tie I recently got but then I thought no - I went for something a little more sober.

    I think I've got the balance of colours right here. Shirt is light blue, new from Lewin.

    Although I think the Swedish winters are generally too long, too cold and too dark, they do present you with opportunities to wear things like this, and that can never be a bad thing.....

    Looks very toasty Ping. Maybe IKEA will come up with a battery-operated tie with a warming device for added heat during Swedish winters.

    One man can dream, can't he :D. Although I will probably get nightmares from trying to assemble such a device.....

    I always disliked "true" red ties, until I found this dark red silk (well okay, it's not "real" red anymore):
