    I have a rust grenadine tie that would look similar to the orange tie and fit your all solids look. But I like that orange one as it brightens up the look

    Ac, you have on my SF's top 3 of 3-piece suits wearer. I always like your CBS style! But above all, I need to know more about that wine collection you feature on most of your shoe shots!

    As I've always said, you need to wear suits more often, definitively suits you! I would've worn different socks tho!

    Splendid use of brown and earth tones!

    Very nice shoes, Crat! Went on my first 'real' fishing trip this week-end, but sure as hell wasn't as stylish as you doing so!

    And those shoes!! Also love what appears to be the Seagull M199S!

    Splendid, love those trousers!

    I don t know. I never really gave it that much thought. I also have a peak lapel tweed jacket. I think peak lapels were more ubiquitous backe in the earlier eras but I just like the look. I think it can be done carefully. Ymmv.

    I agree 100% with these gentlemen.
    Great look, AAS. If you really want to get rid of all patterns, a muted orange would be fine though I think you can pull of a brighter shade as well.

    An orange tie with a dark or mid-blue jacket is a beautiful combination. And versatile: ‘Orange’ is a big category, so if you want a less bold look you can go for ‘burnt orange’, which tends toward the brown side of the orange spectrum; if you want a bold look, as here, that’s fine too.

    AAS’s use of the tie in this case is lovely. And jcmeyer’s tie looks good, too—I look forward to seeing it with a shirt and jacket at some point.

    Cheers,

    Ac

    That looks like a lovely flannel and is a great color. Looking real sharp! Apparently, a button-down collar with a suit is frowned on in these parts, but I don't care: this is a very good fit.

    Thought about a white or cream square, but ultimately decided against it.

    Also, sorry for the crappy lighting. Pents are charcoal.

    Thanks! There was some discussion a while back on the subject of BD shirts with suits. I believe it was argued by some that this is in fact a classic American dress trope, hence allowable; the wearing of OCBDs as part of casual ensembles, i.e. without tie, is a far more recent phenomenon.

    In the UK my fit would possibly be frowned upon. However, I live in Australia, where merely donning a pair of lace-up shoes identifies one as either a silvertail or a hipster. (I, of course, am both.)

    Now if I had more sprezzatura, I wouldn't have bothered doing up the buttons.

    But I like going against the trend. My aim is always to look as studied as possible, without actually expending any effort.

    I agree they're a bit of a hippo-griff or what not (2 diff beasts mixed together)- one formal, one casual. But I think as long as the cut is good it's all good

    Coming u as a bit lighter than navy on my screen. Looks really good.

    Yes, you're right. Not sure what type of blue this is then. Fabric is a flannel from Cerruti.

    Purple, lemon yellow, and coral.

    Just kidding. Cream and charcoal, with faint navy and light blue overchecks.
