    Today's gear. Second time not wearing a suit to work. Comments included 'What's going on here? Are you off to the Long Room (a bar in the CBD for the non Melbournians) or something?' and 'I don't think blue and grey go together'. [​IMG]

    (no PS today)

    I'm not 100% ok with the HY pants (brushed twill) simply because they are more textured than I was expecting and the jacket appears to have quite open quarters - what is the cause of this? The buttoning point? It doesn't seem that high when I look in the mirror but these photos seem to suggest otherwise.

    I agree completely with you Pop. The shirt is actually cut quite well, imo.

    Dennis looks excellent.

    I can't believe Andrew is Checkstar. Was not expecting that.

    Lennier as Nathan looks good too.

    All look very smart.

    A few crossed wires there Mr Sy but never mind. All in all there was some fine dressing last night, not least by the Aus Members crowd.

    Oh and CD white for the wedding for mine, just a little more formal. Though I like fxh suggestion best.

    In a place where there are far too many black suits.

    Sorry Pink.

    I have never pm'ed or spoken to either, so that is just from putting together what other people have said! I could be wrong. If I can work it out, anyone can. It is like being shot for pointing out the elephant in the room! Anyway, I think it is worthwhile complimenting people where it is due.

    Pissing off a lot of people lately. Such is the characteristic of the righteous.

    Liked your pink and white socks a few pages back. Wanted to say it there and then but it didn't warrant its own post :).

    Praise for pink socks def warrants its own post.

    I was not criticising, just saying that you have not quite got it right. Not going name anyone as I have no idea how much they would like to be know of themselves. All well and good for people you have met in real life.

    I for one tend not to reveal too much of my identity (actually Christian keep jokingly referring to me as Batman for this) but that just me. Quite like just being able to discuss clothing without all my details being known.

    Others, (Nice Guy Gerry, thebrownman, Jason, Romp come to mind) are all dashing enough (or not so paranoid) to photographs of themselves. Even you using your real name...actually I am really called Pink Socks.

    Anyway, leave the (bespoke linen with patch pockets) masks on. But feel free to take your socks off (except when fxh is around, show some respect!).

    A late plunge on white, but too late because I've already packed. So pale blue it is.

    Sorting through my cufflink collection I found my late dad's gold and opal links. I'll wear them, so he can be represented at his grand-daughter's big day.

    Lovely sentiment. I wore my grandfather's watch on wedding day (and at other important family events) for the same reason.

    Blue will look great too and if it does not call fxh and he will bring you a freshly ironed white one.

    Lovely idea, CD.

    I hope that everything goes well and that you have great weather for the wedding.

    For what it's worth, I'd for with the pale blue shirt, too.

    PinkSocks said I may be dashing. Best. Day. Ever.

    PS looked legit last night. In my vernacular, that's synonymous with "very good", not 'legitimate'. How could he ever be legitimate, he's Scottish, after all.

    No, really, launch last night was good fun. For those Melbournites who weren't in attendance, you really missed out on an enjoyable evening.

    Photos are up on the blog with names left out to preserve anonymity for those who want it. [​IMG]

    PS, I'm relieved that I may be dashing as well ...
