^ Nice one, Gerry!
I have no idea whether that shirt is white, pink or blue
LOL, I have planted the seed that a new camera is necessary. And, I'm watering it daily..
Heh! The shirt is whatever colour you want it to be
As for the camera, all I can say is that the seed is planted. thebrownman only provides water, no bovine-produced fertiliser ...
As a person who prefers patterns being not more than textured solids and simple stripes, I think the tie and hankie are pretty gaudy especially against the background of a plain jacket and shirt. Then in the photo with your coat on showing the pinstripe lining and collar ribbing, it all works out nicely with alternating pattern and solids layering which brings balance.
Yeah, blahman, I completely agree. They are pretty gaudy - I think pretty much the only gaudy items I have. I tend to go for the textured ties, subtle patterns and stripes 95% of the time but today I thought "Stuff it!"
Thanks for the kind words and comments, by the way. I always enjoy learning about why it all works.
My only regret with the coat is that it was only available in black when I got it. I never would have thought about wearing a waxed cotton coat over a suit jacket (this one is a biker's jacket, for crying out loud!)until i saw the pics in all the #menswear tumblrs and realised that it could work pretty well. This is the first time I'm wearing it out over a suit and it won't be the last.
Did all those who care get the Modern Tailor sale code? DSX477, FWIW.
I tired the Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum a few times but was unimpressed the shave creme I have been using for a while now is the Christopher Hanlon shave creme, very effective in terms of shaving and keeping you skin in shape.
I don't rate the Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum either. Ultimately, with skincare products, if you care enough, it's best to go consult someone who knows, particularly for those with problems, it may be beneficial to see a dermatologist.
I used to use Valetudo shaving oil from shaver shop because its 100% natural, fragrance free and supposedly can be used for moisturising as well (simply wipe off excess after shave, don't need to rinse away). But then I thought stuff it and now I just use King of Shaves sensitive from any old supermarket. Works well enough.
Great suit and shoes. Thanks for sharing
Well, well, welcome back!!! Thanks for the kind words, Frank.
No prob. Ever.
Oxfords are my fab weave!
Lunchtime DJ stroll again (why do I always keep on going back there?). Saw some new (?) very interesting MJ Bale knit ties for sale.
Saw a few pointed end solids and delicious looking bi colour weaves (looks like a bit like coarser and less delicate version of the E.Zegna pattern).
Hey Aussie Aussie Aussie!!!
