    Waoow, really love the combination of pattern and of this catching sky blue ! I'm not a fan of this cream cardigan, since i prefer when cardigan color is closer to the one of the trousers, but it's very personnal opinion. Pretty nice fit !

    @EliodA and @bienluienapris Thank you very much! I can see how a cardigan of a similar colour to the trousers would work well. Something to try the next time.

    Or another solution for me is to wear a suit with an odd cardigan.

    I'm always amazed how different you look from what I imagined based on your previous (horse-blanket) pics (your taste in clothes seems to have changed a bit in the intervening years).

    This is a really outstanding rig. It probably breaks some SF "rules" but it's just so coherent, in terms of colour, textural interest, and city/country scaling. The scotch-grained shoe leather, tweed fabrics of the trousers and jacket, blue overchecks in jacket and tie - everything is on point and somehow comforting to the eye. It's a perfect winter outfit for a relaxed and self-confident iGent. Kudos to you Gerry.

    You are both terrible.


    @Coxsackie , I tend to take the opposite view. Dark skin tones tend to look good with light, or light monotone, colors. Pale skin tones tend to be able to pull off darker saturated looks. All skin tones tend to look good in the traditional middle with a light shirt on a dark suit.

    Too much blue IMO, but I've seen you make looks like that work so I can see why it appeals to you.

    I suspect Garry may have used a bit of post-pro to bring the blue highlights out. It makes for an appealing photoessay. IRL I suspect the blue is more subtle.

    Also remember that right now in Australia we are experiencing the shortest days of the year. I'm guessing GN shot these snaps with a fast lens, using natural light at dusk. That can produce some interesting colour effects.

    That's entirely possible. I suppose when it comes down to it all I can do is assess what is in front of me.

    Continuing my CT-spree, but the PS is from The Met, the socks from Sockshop, and the belt is from Cordoban, but not made of cordovan...

    I tend to agree with you, Caustic. Certainly, men with swarthy coloring can work the dark suit/white shirt/dark tie look much better than those of us with little to no skin color (that sort of monochrome arrangement looks great on Italian men with a tan and black hair - on me, I look like a cadaver). Conversely, I like more saturated colors on me, for the reason mentioned above (little to no natural skin color).

    Based on the "horse-blanket" embedded in there, I am assuming you mean me, lol, yeah, my tastes have evolved, as they always do..
