    GDL's looks have been my favorite in the thread so far. Conservative, but not overly boring.

    I think CBD is more my pace- although, not exclusively.

    Yesterday - with black shoes and no PS.

    Today - with burgundy shoes and no PS.

    White shirt + yellow tie = awful.

    That blue butcher stripe is fine with that tie. Looks nice.

    These are good. Not bad for a red tie.

    The socks feel a bit too casual for this outfit, but I was in a hurry so I just grabbed them.

    I also think the socks are too casual. I love argyle socks, but reserve them for casual wear only. Never with CBD.

    I like ndw's looks. Especially the first one. Would like it even more with a TV fold.

    Like both - look very good. I would personally double that knot on the first pic but the overall fit of the clothes is top notch. Who made these jackets, if I may ask?

    For spoilers, use the [​IMG] button.

    This one is RTW, Isaia for Paul Stuart (thanks andrew! [​IMG]). It's more of a medium grey than charcoal


    G, I thought I recognized that beauty.

    Looking good.[​IMG]

    Thanks. Funny you say that, as it's my only red tie, and I was about to get rid of it, but thought I'd give it a whirl. I always have trouble pairing red.
    I like ndw's looks. Especially the first one. Would like it even more with a TV fold.
    I tend to agree, but I only very rarely wear a square to work (or anywhere), as it is very conspicuous in both my profession and city (and has certain (what I'd consider negative) connotations)... At any rate the image below was my inspiration- so your suggestion was spot on. [​IMG]

    Thanks. Both are Attolini- although, different cuts - one is soft shouldered and the other is slightly more built up.

    Dislike the tie. Too slick.

    Blue bengal stripe is my favorite CBD shirt, and this overall look is what comes to my mind when I think about CBD style. Fun and lively without being gimmicky or fashiony.

    Whoah, I hate that tie. The rest is good, except for the ticket pocket.

    [​IMG] When I saw olddog's picture, I thought, this man is trolling Manton with that tie.

    Apart from the shoes, isn't this UCBD?

    I agree - swap the shoes for oxfords and it would be as conservative as you could get. I like Ob5curity's clean fit's, and he has the perfect build for them. Having said that PS would add a touch of flair without moving it from CBD.
    Isn't the wool tie slightly subversive too? How does that fit into the CBD universe? I've honestly no idea...


    [​IMG]
    Now that is UCBD (and looks good).

    At any rate the image below was my inspiration- so your suggestion was spot on.

    Great inspiration. I'd love to think I could pull off something like this one day.

    ^ That's a great look and I love the tie.

    Is it just the angle or is your breast patch: a) very large, and b) somewhat squarish?

    The suit is actually a glen plaid. But I tried a grenadine and a shot silk solid and both looked fussy.

    Good fit, Manton. Out of curiosity, how tall are you?
