    Here are some pictures from a recent three-day business trip - one suit, three shirts, three ties, one pair of shoes. Some will not consider the shoes CBD - that has been discussed earlier. Also the ties may not fully qualify, but I am interested in opinions. The suit is grey, but looks different due to the lighting - the day two photo was taken in the morning with natural light in the room.

    The suit:

    PG, not in love with the safety pin but everything else is [​IMG]

    I'm not a fan of the safety pin as a tie pin (or in Skinny's case in place of a collar-bar). I think both distract from otherwise good fits.

    I've been on an UCBD streak over the last few days - never wore black shoes so many times in a row... Rainy day in NYC today so rain coat, rain suit and rain shoes.

    Your third (shantung?) is OK but the others are not great, IMP. I don't like the blotchy dots at all and the dragonflies are too cutesy.

    Or "modern" or "fashiony" or something. Have always disliked, even before I got old.

    gdl: Don't listen to Manton - the floating medallions look good. As does the DB raincoat - Grenfell?

    OK. Never thought of these as fashiony - they're not my favorite and get worn mostly on rainy days but that's because they don't fit very well, not because of the medallion.

    That's an old Turnbull & Asser tie

    That's what I would have guessed; very nice.
