    It took me a while to get the joke, but then i let out a girlish giggle...gnihihihih...@Sander .

    Thanx @upr_crust - i am pretty sure some guys would disagree with that statement ;-)

    Whatever it is - the fact that wearing red shoes means you can become pope in here is more important than what name said person will go by.

    If it means i can do & say whatever i want and get away with it using the infallability argument, i can cope with being 3rd declension, @heldentenor
    Eventually opportunity will present itself, @Sander . Have faith - amen!

    ^^^^ Dennis, it's always a pleasure (for me, at least) to see your postings. As for the jokes, I was having flashback to my last year of Latin class, which was only shortly after the end of the last Ice Age.

    This evening, I've been invited by the son of a former colleague to the grand opening of the new showroom for KnotStandard in NYC. My former colleague wants me to teach his son how to dress; the son, I suspect, wishes to curry favor with his employer, with the appearance, at least, of a viable new client (I've already informed the son that my net worth is currently being drained by the renovation of a new apartment); I'm going to this shindig out of curiosity, and for the free nibbles and booze.

    Choosing attire for this evening was a conundrum. I want to look as if I am a viable client (so as not to embarrass my host), but that I'm not a naif in terms of the purchase of menswear (so as not to look like an easy mark). I hope that today's attire accomplishes that end.

    Suit - New & Lingwood
    Shirt - BB
    Tie - Charvet
    Braces - Trafalgar, via Paul Stuart
    Cufflinks - St. Petersburg/Theo Faberge, London
    Vintage watch chain
    Shoes - Septieme Largeur

    Yes, darker shoes would have been better (same shade as the tie would be perfect imo), but the rest is really nice. Black watchband with brown jacket would bother me though.
    All the colors you mention would work, but with a white shirt and light grey suit, almost any color tie would work imo. Your choices would be good and safe, the olive here is a little more adventurous.
    No worries, that's what I took from it as well.
    Simple, but not simple. Me gusta. edit: same goes for @Cleav
    Perfect, that's just what I was going for.

    Today's shoes are on the 224 last, which is less narrow (and more comfortable, for me, at least) than the 199, for which I have to go up a half size.

    Hi folks,

    I have been absent for the past 5 months or so. Sorry guys if i did miss your posts. I'm back and hope to make some more contributions as usual. Find enclosed some photos taken over the weekend with the family.

    Note: I thought my pocket square should have been tucked in a little more.

    Love this. Really love where your trousers sit on your body and stance and length of your coat(and how that all plays into the proportions)

    Is that Steed? 2 piece or odd coat and trou?
