    Shoes/pants from today.

    The pants are a nice olive/brown melange.

    The color of those pants is great...

    ^ Thank you, David. It's Accra, Ghana, where I've been since December

    Incidentally, I only own one SB suit

    I have seen many films from the 1920's where men would sport their pocket squares as if a grenade had hit it. So I figured I would experiment with it. I think it was right around the same time men started to unbutton their bottom button on their double breasted jacket. I think it was the beginning of causally elegant "sporty flair" as the daily formal Edwardian styles were starting to become old-fashioned, at least with younger men.

    I used to wear mine similarly. One of my best friends still does

    The suit looks good. I have to enquire: were those your siblings in the previous photograph?

    You're a touch Lazenby-esque - that's no bad thing

    In a rare moment of curiousity, could I please get your tie details?

    Speaking of rain....Cat 3 Earl bears down on the islands and PR today, as it continues to strengthen into what will surely be our second Cat 4 of the season. While it is predicted to turn NW and miss the East Coast, it is still steaming WNW at best and if that curve comes late, the OBX and NE are in the cone of impact. Interests up and down the coast should closely monitor this dangerous storm.

    Mike, my son's first birthday party is Sunday...looks like its gonna skirt the NYC, but I'm hoping the leftover rain won't keep people away.

    DAMN! Those are some sweet tassels. My wife keeps trying to talk me out of suede tassels (you already have two pair of tassels...), but I'm cravin' a pair.

    Nii, I agree...I was looking at a pair of Canali ones on eBay, but I thought the price would be too high, so I didn't bid. Ended up at $75 [​IMG]

    Outstanding outfit - especially with the double monks, nothing wrong with them. I would get rid of the tie bar but that's just me...

    Cheers!

    Awesome. Thanks. Looking to put together a Vegas vacation lineup & this seems to fit the occasion; fun & good for the warm weather.

    This would definitely make a great Vegas vacation option. You can use the jacket as a separate as well with white pants or blue cotton shorts.

    This is a great look. The tie pin and tie are very well placed. [​IMG] +1

    The suit is a amazing option especially for the summer (Linen i presume). You found a way to still look business and work in a very casual fabric. For me on the shoes if they were all brown it would have worked better (just in my option).

    I like it with the monks, IST.
    IST, so do I, the look comes together nicely. The pin in the tie is done very well, too.
