    Nice birthday present [​IMG]

    happy 50th TB
    Thank you, gentlemen. Indeed, the Birthday Boy has thoughtful, generous friends and much else to be thankful for. [​IMG] I am not worthy.

    It's getting easier all the time, dawg. Replacement parts are cheaper and of better quality than ever before. [​IMG]

    Mike, I would really have enjoyed seeing a long shot of this outfit. It looks terrific.

    Nice shoes. Overall, I think the brown tie and brown suit are too much together. I'd also consider slimming and shortening the pants. Keep cool!
    Really like it.
    I love those shoes. Great shape.
    Very nice suit and ensemble. I agree with philosophe, though, about taking some material out of the slacks.
    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I would have to agree that pleated pants do look baggy on me. What I wore to church this pass Sunday. Had to forgo the tie and go with a more casual look. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch. There was an Indian wedding at the same time as ours that was effing INSANE. They hired boats to shoot off fireworks over the Atlantic and half of our wedding oarty went out to watch with them. I also wish we could have eaten over there, the smells coming from that room were intoxicating and I loooove Indian food.

    You know it!

    Try some Indian icecream for dessert next time you visit a restaurant, comes in cool flavours such as pistacio, rosewater, saffron, mango and cardamom. My favourite.

    absolutely nailed it!! lovely fabric on the suit. tie blends in well and shoes are spot on!

    In my experience (and i'm sure this can be disputed) those color spectators go very well with lighter colored pants - which is why seersucker, linen, tans and browns are always a good match. i'd have gone with a bone/cream or tan pair of pants, but then that would have thrown off the colors up top. Try it out with some colors in the light brown or light blue family and lets see how it comes out.


    Thanks Nii -

    Ill play around with some other colors, I just find these a hard match.

    Where are you going thats cold??

    Pretty fly, Spoo.

    Thanks C -

    Now, question - you are wearing light specs with a navy pant and it works there. How come when I wore them with a (not so different shade of ) navy yesterday it was awkward? Because I had a SC not a suit? Yours are true white and caramel, right? Mine are a beige canvas and cream leather. Just curious really - as I said, Ive never had specs and am unsure of the matching/combining.

    Honestly I think they look a little off. Too much pop without enough to counter it above the waist.

    I knew a lady who worked as a hostess at an Indian restaurant. One of her responsibilities was chopping the nuts for the special Indian ice cream. She chuckled that it sold quite well, even though it was regular vanilla ice cream bought from the nearby supermarket. But hey, the nuts made it exotic.

    I like this look overall, HF, but I'm not a fan of ascots. [​IMG]
