    JRD, I've seen that picture before. How do you have a picture of my cousin?!

    Wow, I don't know if Timo or Clag got the same Korean dowry deal but a nice quality suit is included in the dowry among many other good things. I love being Korean. I told them I am picking the suit, NOT them. [​IMG]

    Is it common for SC/Blazers to be quite a bit shorter in length? A lot of times I see them about even with sleeve length barely covering the ass and the button point so high up.

    Rudals,

    Look at photos of Matteo Marzotto. He is a great example of CBD done right both in color and style. Should be good inspiration for how to avoid being boring.

    The steps you want to take (ie. gingham shirts) are, with great respect, totally wrong.

    A few weeks ago I won the bid on this Holiday & Brown for $9.99 finally shipped in from Italy.

    Also got these but I'm wondering if this top one (Tina Cosma) is too much...

    I go back and forth on this one (Etro Milano). I got all these for $9.99 each so it's not gonna kill me if they don't work.

    I like this one. It's a vintage Yves Saint Laurent

    Finally have a pair of suspenders for my RLPL suit.

    You heard me, Bean. Lighter grays > Charcoal when it comes to a true navy tie and not some lighter shade of blue

    In my opinion, of course.

    It's NOT $9.99! It's $10.00.
    But anyways, if that's all you had to pay for then I say why not. But I didn't like any of them.

    Try a Google image search. Matteo is (probably) not a member of SF.

    I believe that navy ties go perfectly with light grey suits.
    But I think they also can work with charcoal greys.

    Wow...(I am speechless).
    I thought he was a SF member.
    That's probably the dumbest thing I've posted thus far...but there may be dummer ones.
