    This is the security guard done well. I agree that the pick stitching is too obvious, but I appreciate that you're toning things down while still maintaining your sartorial reckless abandon.
    Looks good. Tie is very bright and it suits you. I like that you brought the red color with the PS and links too. Spoo, I see navy, not black. :confused:

    I like it, though I think I'd like this more with darker trousers. The values of the top and bottom halves are just a little too close.

    To clear up the confusion, yes, the suit is really black, and thank you, Spoo-meister, for the compliment upon it - it was recently altered to fit the somewhat smaller me.

    As for the tie, the only way that I thought that I could tame it would be to keep to a very strict, basic color scheme - black, white, red, with a touch of yellow (in the PS), like a Goya portrait. The pocket square is new as well, and happily, it kept to the color scheme.

    I like the look of this quite a bit. I've always found your posts to be classic and conservative, yet seem very appropriate for you. I also love how you qualified Florence with Italy, as if we wouldn't have assumed that. :satisfied:

    It's been a while to post here.
    I bought this beautiful suit from one of forum members, and I like it.
    I wonder whether a light-blue shirt would work better than white one with a khaki cotton suit.

    victor - like the cufflinks you've been wearing. adds some panache.

    Show us details of the brown suede bag with the edging. And who made that for you?

    And this from Florence Alabama: http://www.billyreid.com/

    Which I'm sure some will be shocked to discover. As Billy Reid has become rather 'hot' in the trad/street wear world recently.

    Who wuda thunk?

    Señor Crust: Very graphic and sharp. Your colleague seems to have nailed your tie aesthetic, too.
    Spoo: +1 on Lufty's comment about the contrast between top and bottom. Switch out those trousers, and this would be a killer look.

    (I won't go along with the comments in the thumbs-up trend. It doesn't work well, plus I don't get what's so bad about having praise in-line with the rest of the thread...)

    Still too hot for ties on all but the most essential days.

    Thank you all for your comments!


    Thank you also for the interesting photos of members of the forum today!

    Something like more, something less, but there is something to see. This is very good!


    As for the suede bag, This Alfredo Beretta,

    that's the full picture:
