    Where did you get an HF suit with such wide lapels? I have a Madison with lapels that only reache a hair past halfway between collar and shoulder. Was it MTM?

    Nothing wrong with wanting to mix things up. There are patterned shirts that can be worn very well with a jacket and tie. Darker shirts are nearly always a no-go however. Stripes, micro-check, and windowpane shirts are often used to great affect with a jacket/tie.

    I have some great light blues with those patterns that I'll give a try next time.

    I'll second this. Some of my ties just work better tying a particular knot. Also, I'm fairly short and some of my ties are too long, so the extra usage of a HW can make the difference.

    Just to bring down the level of photography, but at least attempting a smile, here's what I'm wearing today. First the out-of-focus almost full body shot to give you the general idea.

    Details: Corneliani DB blazer - some won't like the stronger shoulders, but I do; CT sky blue gingham shirt; Holland & Sherry tie; PS is screenprinted cotton made in Japan, one of several I was given as a gift years ago - main colours are green and purple on a white background; lightweight taupe wool trousers from Mediterraneo; plus unseen purple socks and Stemar shoes.

    I think it is actually a movie called "Superstar" based off of an SNL character

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0167427/

    edited to add link.

    Every time I see this jacket I feel better about having bought one. Colors are awesome for my money; shirt is plenty light.

    Great coat and button stance. Where did you get the suit from? Looks like RLBL but the pocket flaps don't look right for that. Shoulders, length and stance are though.

    @Kent Wang I am fairly certain that is Teju lizard. Carmina works with it
