    I've read through the first 230 pages of this thread, and it has been real fun, and inspiring, to see the progress which Stitchy have made (salute to you!), so now I am eager to start learning by trial and error myself [​IMG]

    Today I finally got around to using the dark grey suit that I bought during a sale earlier this year. When I stepped out of the shower to experiment with different ties and PS:s did I though realize that I only had 5 minutes to get dressed. So I am unsure about the PS, and am thinking that I perhaps should've had a tie in a lighter green? The shirt is light blue and white, but looks light blue when viewed from a greater distance than these close-up pics. The last picture is the one I managed to snap before running off earlier today. The other two I took after have worn the clothes for ~12 hours (hence the tie's funny dimple).

    Thanks a lot sugarbutch!

    Btw, I find it highly amusing that you have that quote by Upton Sinclair as your signature. I have had the same quote as a signature myself, but on another forum. You seem to have as good taste in quotes as you have in clothes!

    Decided on the blue shirt...

    ...tie, suit, jacket, gloves, square, socks, cufflinks...

    I won those OTC wool socks in an SF contest like 4 years ago :)

    Pazz - looks good. Green + gray = win IMHO.

    Nore - like it. Also dots + stripes = win.

    NORE: Beautiful tie, but the stripes on the suit are a bit too aggressive for my taste.

    GREAT! That tie has just enough sheen to it, pure sechs.

    I'd say good, but not great. I don't care for ties with sheen.

    +1 to ET. Too much sheen for my taste.

    Is it just me or has this thread resembled WAYWRN a lot more than a "good taste" thread lately? It seems that most of the fits of late are things that vaguely resemble good taste but are generally too loud to fit that description.

    When I think of good taste I imagine something one might wear to a country club or semi-casual business lunch. Not something that you'd wear for praise from GQ types on the streets of Manhattan or contrarily something from a corporate board room.

    I am far from a contributor but as a student from the sidelines the nascent pages of this thread were rife with advice and excellent examples from mafoofan, Manton, etc. I feel as if it has strayed to people asking for advice on outfits that are not nearly "good taste" worthy and it's like WAYWRN pt. 2.

    Inevitability dictates that all threads see the same eventuality. See the Shoe Pr0n threak.

    ^^ hey now ! :( ^^

    i think its still a far cry from WAYWRN. sure, its not filled with perfection, but it a place where people are a bit more careful with what they post, and its a good place to get good feedback from people who are proven to have good taste. not to mention, when it gets down to "the best," there is a lot of personal preference involved.

    Looks great to me - the only comment I would make is a preference on my part for cut away collars with suits rather than sports jackets. I love that colour of jumper.
