    not sure that style of waste with pleats works well with sneakers. also looks like, beyond the intentional high rise, the pants seem to be pulled up too high judging by the crotch...

    Thanks, Pliny! It was in fact you who inspired me to purchase that tie.

    @StylishDad, I think you would look better in a jacket with wider lapels and a lower buttoning point. It may just be the picture, but you appear to be wider in the hips and/or waist. The button position on the jacket you're wearing here makes them look wider; just my opinion.

    Also listen to the advice given about your ties, they are too narrow for your face. I would also consider a wider spreading collar

    Whoa, I may be too young to even know the movie (even though I'm 34) but wow, that is just awesome style there. Clean, simple and a 3/2 to boot. I guess I've never studied Cary Grant but I guess I have to now.

    There is hardly a Cary Grant, James Stewart, James Mason, Gregory Peck (to name but a few "period" stars) film, you can go wrong with. Actually missing out on those is a gap in basic education, IYAM.
    North By Northwest, Charade, Houseboat, Indiscrete, Operation Petticoat, To Catch A Thief, those are just a very few basic CG ones. There are lots more.

    Edit:
    Thank you for the pm, dude. That shows great character. All good with me and if you are up to it, I hope we can have a beer or two when you are in Seoul next time.

    I like the pants + sneakers myself, but I can understand if it's not in everyone's taste. You're righht about the trousers, I hiked them up, since they're just half an inch longer than ideal. I am quite certain they will sit just right after a washing though.

    Wish I could pull off high rise pants like you, Eric. Trying with Eidos Sal's but am in two minds whether to return, or not.

    Yet something else dragged out of the archives - a suit I've not worn in six months or more. Happily, it still seems to fit.

    Suit - BB Regent
    Shirt - BBGF
    Tie - PRL
    Cufflinks - a craft fair in the Recoletas district, Buenos Aires, Argentina
    PS - Robert Talbott
    Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand

    @upr_crust looking as sharp as ever. Really like your outfits!

    Double breasted today. And they say it's nearly summer...not here it isn't. Wet and cold.

    Like that, not my style but it works well. Thinking of having a PoW suit made in a brownish colour, with BD patch pockets, even the breast pocket, with external box pleats and a half belt around the back, maybe 4 buttons. Think of Safari shooting jacket
