    Jumping on the knitted silk bandwagon. Wish I could have gotten a decent full on shot to show the brown calf belt, shoes, and brown atache.

    Yes - that was the Nordstrom ... actually pretty nice. Their suit/sports coat selection was a little weak (Canali was the best i saw), but hey i found the Oliver Peoples i've been looking for forever, so good deal.

    And we did make it up to Mt. Adams:

    I'm bummed also about suit selection but better than most others in town. If you make it back up, check out Blaine's just a little up the road in Montgomery:

    And I think you found my favorite place for sunset and a burger (great bloodies too): City View? Love that place.

    This hardly approaches too busy, IMO.

    +1 -- I think it works.

    It is not a joke
    I realise that it is not everybody's taste
    But i am an artist and sometimes like to dress differently


    No shame Dylanda, I think it's interesting--the pants say artist to me. What kind of art? Looks like you like to use your hands and get into it. I think the colors go well together. It's not surprising that 0b5cur1ty doesn't favor that look--his style is not artisan. Mine isn't either, in fact mine is probably more like 0b5cur1ty's but kudos for expanding the horizons. Any pics of others you've been inspired by? Next time take the pic next to one of your works?

    Oldog I don't like the windowpane shirt with the windowpane jacket; nor the pink patterned tie with such a similarly coloured shirt; these despite my having begun to appreciate paisley patterned ties in scary colours and more similar tie and shirt colours - if the pink on the tie was darker it might be better.

    The DB suit - the tension around the ticket pocket/buttons bothers me. I'd like to think a gentle tug would straighten everything, but I doubt it - it had the same effect last time you posted it. From older shots, I'd say you've lost a fair bit of weight - is this tension possibly the result of alterations? On some suits, the pockets also look as if they're a little too much to the side seam, as if the result of alterations to trim the suit. Nothing you'd really notice in the flesh.

    But what do I know? I can't even tell when pockets are level.

    Keep having fun...
