    Love the summer clothes, Holdfast and Vox. If everyone dressed as well as the two of you, summer would be so much more pleasant.

    Thanks!

    The coat is a MTM suit by a local tailor (Birmingham, Michigan), Chicchini Clothiers. The shirt is a good old Brooks Bros. slim fit.

    I think you need to size down on the shirt, the collar is a bit big.

    Vox, the numerals look strange...

    I assumed that you referred to number 4? Rolex always does that, I guess it has something to do with readability.

    Ed is right about the collar. The suit looks good.

    Using IIII instead of IV is standard for most brands of good watches.

    Traditionally, clocks used IIII instead of IV. Before clocks, in the Roman era, IIII was used almost exclusively for the numeral 4, partly because IV was often used as an abbreviation for Jupiter.

    At least, that's what I recall. There are a plethora of theories regarding the convention with clock and watch dials.

    Love it when you post the details, but I have to be honest, this does not work for me. And as others have said, the jacket looks very long.

    But I have really liked most of your outfits in the last few weeks..


    I have a few of these Borrelli jackets of the same slightly longer length and they look fine. They're actually cut shorter in the back so from the rear look much more proportionate.

    Too kind, but much appreciated anyway! [​IMG]

    Thanks. This is the summer uniform when a suit and tie are not needed.

    Now that's a good dress code.

    ...thank you, C.

    My pleasure. In accordance with the best standards of corporate governance, I operate a simple & transparent fee structure in return for being your mouthpiece. That will be one Drakes tussah silk tie, please. [​IMG]

    - I must be the minority as this is a car wreck
    - could be the over-saturated pic..
    - shoes are to light or yellow
    - the tie, shirt & PS is jarring


    Same. Thought either SF's or my own tastes had suddenly changed.

    - maybe if the suit wasn't so dark


    Don't you have a surf board to polish?
