    Lack of saturation. (on mobile)

    Say more when you get a chance. That's part of why I like it as a winter fit even though it's sort of summery, light blue and tan. If you are going to do this in winter then I think less saturation is good.

    Sorry, Tweedy, I guess I misunderstood the direction you wanted for the discussion. I thought you wanted to talk about why it might not have gotten past the threshold.

    I'm not surprised that I thumbed it. It's a good combination, and I'm sure it fits well. I can't say that I'm immune to the effects of pose and lighting, but I like to think I can generally see past them to assess what's being worn.

    This would all be so much easier if AAS could send out an easily collapsible replication of his setup. :) My man has robopose on lock.

    Here's another one by CousinDonuts. If you want the full set of fit pics, it's page 865 of WAYWRN Part IV:

    People didn't like the socks, apparently, but everything else looks really outstanding to my eye. Non-thumb givers: did the socks hold you back?

    I really liked it, aside from the PS. The socks were silly and his kids picked them out so you can fault him for being a good dad.

    Fit isn't perfect. Tie seems shinny. Not enough contrast between pants and jacket. Odd pocket square choice for a patch pocket.

    I personally don't mind the jacket/pants, and I'm not crazy about everything fitting perfectly on other people (though it can drive me nuts with my own stuff).

    A pic of the socks and/or link to the post would help... (Yeah, I'm lazy!)

    Also, not everyone shows the same number of posts per page, so page numbers aren't particularly helpful.

    Good point, SB. Here's the rest of the fit pics:

    If you look close, they have handlebar mustaches on them.

    The shirt and tie are a little too slick for the jacket, and the hank is just wrong and poorly folded/stuffed. With a knit tie, I think this would have gotten more love because the colors are nicely put together.

    The socks, especially given the explanation, are fine by me. I know people get offended by fun socks, but maybe those people are taking things a bit too seriously?

    Thanks @heldentenor .
    Seeing only the first - poor quality - pic, I wouldn't have thumbed. Basically I would echo Clag's comments.
    Though with the other pics, I think it looks good enough. The contrast seems to be ok and though the tie still looks a bit shiny, at least the gren texture helps. Not wild about the hank. Trousers seem to be of a nice luxurious fabric. And of course, I like the matchy-matchy thing with tie and shoes (I seem to remember @Holdfast hated that, and as always with him he had a good explanation for it?).
    I don't mind the socks, knowing that his kids selected them.

    Edit: @Monkeyface posted this more or less comparable fit yesterday. Knit tie and different hank make it look better than the fit above (though here the shirt is not ok, i think):

    If we keep this up, I'm going to learn a lot from this.

    You know I suck at expressing myself, too many words, too academic. I'll stop there! [​IMG]
