    Great stuff, man! And lovely accoutrement. This is the second time I've admired your attire and the tailoring looks similar. Where do you get your stuff?

    Not a great picture of the clothes, but the striped effect of the shed wall is a bonus.

    No worries - I've never seen anyone besides Dennis position his tie like that in a db jacket - it's his steez.

    So it was 38 degrees here the other day (that's 100F to the Americans, Liberians and Burmese). This is what I wore - cotton, linen, silk and suede:

    Can't see all that much of the fit, but it must be the coolest FC entry since we saw @Synthese and the VanBurens in the desert[​IMG]

    The suit is from New & Lingwood, in London; the shirt is Tyrwhitt; the tie is Charvet, via Bergdorf Goodman, NYC, and the braces are from Paul Stuart, NYC. Thanks for the compliments.

    I had forgotten I would not be home Thursday-Friday this week, so I didn't find time/reason to wear a striped suit this week. Not that I would have stood any chance against the great submissions this week.

    Anyway:

    Poll is up!
