As far as not looking like a fool, which was, after all, the challenge.
These two girls came up to me and wanted to have my picture taken with them at the gay pride parade in SF.
I was the best dressed there, maybe not the best undressed there, but certainly the best dressed.
Which one are you, Hampton?
With the green RLPL silk pants
knew it. love those. great fits!
they totally wanted to fuck you.
No need to ask forgiveness for asking questions.
The general rule, as least as I undestand it, is that one's tie and one's pocket square should coordinate in color, but not match. My choice today was perhaps quirky (it's been known to happen), but I wanted to wear something that wasn't a white cotton handkerchief.
As for choice of shirt, wearing a double-cuffed shirt with a seersucker suit is not the norm as well, but I like the combo of today's tie, cufflinks, and pocket square (green and yellow). A more normal selection of shirt would be an oxford cloth button down (OCBD).
I last wore today's attire (with a blue double-cuffed shirt instead of white) for a fundraiser at the Frick Collection - their Garden Party. I decided to repeat history.
did you plug one of your glasses' temples through a button hole? nifty...
ok, here goes.
in honor of the challenge i went ahead and made a fit gif. its my first attempt at that, and i am reasonably pleased with the result.
boring stills also included.
I guess it works because it's a pretty safe combo. It's not been deeply thought, really. Cream linen suit is a classic, paired with a fine striped shirt that looks pale blue from a distance, then a navy knit - can't go wrong. Pretty much any handkerchief would have worked provided there was enough contrast with the jacket.
Stitchy, that looks nice - I wish more RTW makers would cut their armhoals like that.
Agreed. I'd never thought of that until this morning when I saw his post in the Luxire thread where se said he gets them for that purpose. I have dropped my glasses a number of times and that seems to be the cure.
Great thread, gents.
RDiaz, I featured you on the homepage - hopefully you don't mind?
Not at all & I feel humbled
