    I agree that blue suit, white shirt, black grenandine, plain black oxford captoes, white Linen PS would be boss.

    Back when Foo was handing out Foo's, there was someone who posted a wedding photo with a blue suit, white shirt, forget the tie, and a yellowish odd vest. Did anybody save that? I can't find mine atm.

    Here is an alternative geometric wedding tie for consideration. Would do nicely as well:

    holy macroni and cheese! I have all that!!!
    oh wait, I have derbies but I wonder who the heck is gonna say, "Oh no! He's wearing a pair of derbies and not oxfords."
    I pray that no SF members sneak in to critique my fit.
    I want to do french cuffs, blue suit, black oxfords (if I can buy them), and a grey PoW.

    Oh [email protected], I just booked a ticket for my soon-to-be wife and the email receipt said call the # below for verification.
    I called.
    I thought I dialed Korean Air but I dialed the personal # listed and ended up talking to the mother-in-law.
    Yes, I asked her, "Is this Korean Air?"

    That photoshop is really a botch.

    I shopped @mktitsworth 's avy.

    It was originally meant for @in stitches but he secretly hates it and decided to use his old zebra avatar instead.

    At least Tits appreciates me. :nodding:

    i remember the fit, and foo fawning over it slack jawed, but i really have no interest in reliving that period of that thread.

    ^ Don't like that fit. Too busy

    I generally don't like odd vests under suits either. That look turns up a lot in the Friday challenges.

    Matching 3-pieces, or bust.

    Hey guys, couple of new jackets came in, looking for help. They navy one I already plan to have my tailor sew on the bottom button and stitch the lining back in a little higher. The brown herringbone I plan to have her let out sleeves and let out fabric in the side seams. Anything else you can see? Either of them beyond redemption? Thanks!

    Also, I have decided I am going to try and lose some weight to help with vent gaping on so many of my jackets.
