    Greg, I fear you might not enjoy my company, as I always wear a square in a SC and I almost never wear ties... :embar:

    nice. I enjoy flip...found some pretty nice ties and pocket squares there for cheap. The navy sportcoat im wearing today came from there too IIRC :slayer:

    lets get something on the books. We'll drop in and give bleachboy hell and raid the racks at flip.

    yea the blue is a little too bright blue
    but i didn't have too many choices
    especially since i was going to tie a windsor knot

    btw... not familiar with bat mitzvah so... i have no idea what you're referring to

    thanks
    i felt good
    (except maybe i could find myself a better tie)
    and just as you said, i did the windsor since i was wearing a spread collar
    my first and only spread collar/french cuff shirt

    In the full-length, the tie looks like a larger scale paisley or something. Nice, solid look, though Señor Crust. I doubt the tie will get much love 'round these parts, but if there's any place a man should be able to express his aesthetic, it's the tie.


    Your jacket's grown wings! Love it. Of your recent looks, this is my favorite. I'm a big fan of single-breasted with peak lapels.


    Methinks nay. It just looks like you pulled the vest from a different suit and put it on, sorta like wearing a suit jacket as an odd jacket (BlazerSuit[​IMG] notwithstanding).

    Trying something a bit different, heavily inspired by the second pic in this post, which I felt had a good idea albeit not brilliant execution. Not sure I've done any better, to be honest, but I like it anyway, as another option.

    (yeah, I know I wore this as part of a suit only a couple of days ago, but I wanted to try it as a separate today, so sod giving it time to "rest/relax". :p )

    Works a little better than the Kiton IMO due to the less stark light/dark contrast...

    And I have the exact opposite opinion - sorry Cary G! :worship:

    To me it would have worked better if the trousers were either just barely off white or navy. Something about the current trousers is just a bit meh for me.

    Perhaps a shoe with a little more interest would have helped as well - it's bit 'busy on top' and 'bland on bottom'.

    Not that it's bad or anything - just might be stronger with some tweaks.

    There - now you have to conflicting opinions - what could be more helpful than that!!!! :D

    Well it actually is a waistcoat from another suit,this was the first time i was trying to do this,if i'll like this style i may get more waistcoats but i think checked or other color waistcoat differentiating heavily from the suit will make it too casual,no?Also i wear sometimes suit jackets and pants as separates,mostly plain ones,may be it's a deadly sin here but it's ok for me :)
    Also i would appreciate very much some feedback on suit,fit and generally to overall attire(tie,shirt,ps),because I'm quite new to this and would like some recommendations.

    I know you like your patterns, HF, but I think the top part is just too busy now. I hope you don't mind me doing this:



    I think it makes the outfit a bit more balanced. Qu'est-ce que vous en pensez?

    Very fine Tom Ford suit Spoo, would be curious to see how black wingtips rock with that outfit.

    i need to figure out something else to do with my pocketsquare (i bought that off a member here who rolled the edges himself)

    i had been wearing the sportscoat with jeans only before today
    tried pairing the SC with navy pants for the first time
    i think it's just ok... i need to figure out a better color combo
