    I work with a guy who looks just like him when he was in his 40's.

    The thread is. The posts, not always.

    o/o: I love it, but a chocolatey DB and buff checked tie aren't going to win the CBD sweepstakes. That would get the love it deserves in the WAYWRN thread.

    In looking at this picture, I realized that I was playing four-pattern bingo. Still CBD?

    I'm wearing this today, to a client meeting, in a conservative industry - so that fits my view of CBD but I'm not sure it fits the consensus view of CBD

    Great color palette, though. I think the shirt would work better if the suit were a plainer weave, like a serge or something. The texture, of the grenadine, herringbone, and check is a bit busy, imo.

    I can see how on your own scale it would be too busy ('cause it goes from 0 straight to 10 :laugh:). But, in my reality, one pattern (microcheck) for an outfit is not too busy at all.

    I love the suiting fabric, do you remember what it is? It appears to be a blue/grey, correct?
