    You don't find the pocket square and tie too matchy-matchy?

    not really ... maybe my threshhold for matchy-matchy is lower than others .... there seems to be enough colors in the tie to avoid it being matchy in my eyes ... now if the tie was only blue/white ....

    Thanks, nii. What does it take to get an 8? (Funky socks?)

    a PS. funky socks and you go off the charts!!

    Thank you.

    I really will get the sleeves brought up one of these days. My girlfriend is a clothing designer so she does my alterations. You know the saying about the cobbler's children having no shoes?

    Plymouth, Beefeater, or Hendricks?

    Name another, and you've killed your outfit!

    Vesuvial Machine-rolled EdgesÂ[​IMG] ? Is that the same as saying "fine Corinthian leather"? [​IMG]

    Is that the DB jacket? What's the color palette?

    SB. It's in a loose, Italian (I assume Carlo Barbera) twill linen, light khaki with blackish-brown ground.

    Use your imagination. Whatever you think up, it will pale before the reality.

    Plymouth, Beefeater, or Hendricks?

    The martini was Old Raj.

    Little known fact: shoes made from Corinthian leather can be easily perforated after you buy them. You don't even need a fancy drill bit: just use the tines of a fork, and stab repeatedly à la mode Bates.

    I wish I could add about an inch to the length of this coat. Only noticing it now in the picture, I think this is the 2nd or 3rd time I've worn it in 2 years. I futzed with the sleeves a bit right before taking this pic, they look normal most of the time. This look was originally planned to go with some carmel colored cords, but Spoo's blue slacks and similar sports coat made me dig out my RLPR linen trousers. I prefer how it pulls the tie into balance.

    I love the shoulders on this Isaia.

    Gshen's Kimono pocket square makes a nice match I think.
