    Personally I couldn't see this combination worn on anyone under the age of 40.

    I'd change either the tie or the shirt. Then again, I like lots of contrast in what I wear.

    Nice. I expecially like the vest. Love the colors too. Fall is my favorite time of year.

    Very nice arrangement. I like the contrast of materials and the blend of colors. However, the look is costumey and would make anyone look OLD. It would be good for in-store manniquins though.

    You've got to be kidding me. Browns, oranges, and greens in all their autumn shades give *so* much depth to a wardrobe.

    Carlo, BTW, does Jill have a background as a stylist or something like that? Good eye. Very good eye.

    Jill has spent a lot of time doing wardrobe consulting and training folks on public speaking but for whatever reason she's always loved dressing men.

    ...which is why she won't let me do a line for ladies, my interest has always leaned more toward the opposite process.

    Here's another fall look... obviously Jill needs a good slap for not using one of our ties but well... if I did that i'd wake up strangled with a 7-fold. Next 3-4 dozen tie patterns in 8 weeks or so, finalizing. [​IMG]

    Bic Pentameter,

    You mention brown looks good for your skin. However, I thought you were Japenese because you're posting from Tokyo.

    I heard that you should try to match eye color with your clothing, but I don't think this rule works for Asians with brown irises. And, I believe that I read that most Asian men would look better that has a lot of contrast to it. To me, I have trobule picturing how these clothes would look good on a Asian man.

    Asians look best in high contrast clothing - i.e. dark. So beige really doesn't work, but medium to dark browns and greens are great.

    interesting use of the polo-collar pullover...i doubt i would've thought to put one on over a shirt & tie. i wish i had more occasion to wear layers...fall and winter just isn't the same out here as back east.

    You should PM Carlo and ask to buy some ties.
