Spoon, throw that tie in da box
Casual Friday again - felt like using some color. There was a bit of discussion recently on using a jacket as the lightest element of an outfit... Does this apply? If so, does it work?
Couple of days left before going back home... Today it was cloudy though...
And a blurry fitpic.
Great shoes, what are they?
Thanks. I've learned that Brooks has had some weird sizing variances through the years.
Pre-90s Brooks is cut smaller. I have coats and suits sized 38-40 that fit me perfectly in the shoulders.
90s Brooks is cut roomy, wide, and long. My coats from that era have to be sized 36 S or R to fit right, otherwise the shoulders are a bit too big.
Recent Brooks is cut slimmer than 90s Brooks, though not as small as pre-90s Brooks, so a 38R is almost always the right choice (some exceptions).
It's a Zegna for Dunhill Wool / Cashmere mix birdseye.
Those are EG for RL ("Grant")
lufty, jfc, please don't do that again.
spoo, I think your brown coat would look better with lighter pants, more of a mid gray,
TTO, while every piece is good in itself, I think the shirt and tie patterns don't work together.
Yesterday. There was a white pocket square, but it disappeared. Suit is a navy Chan.

I'm rarely if ever in a suit, but when I am, this is what it looks like.
Fair. I had a camel coat on originally before I realized it was 75 plus 75% humidity. Grabbed a coat on my way out the door. Shoulda gone navy blazer instead. Cest la vie.
sorry to interrupt, but I don't know where to post this--hopefully someone will tell me.
IS there someone in the UK who can proxy for me? Meaning receive a package on my behalf and then forward it to me, to my address in Canada? I'll cover all costs by paypal to you beforehand, of course...plus a service fee for you if you chooose
UC - To my jaded eye the more subtle your compositions are the more outstanding they appear.
Courting two SF issues! Navy odd trousers and a lighter sport coat.
I like, but then I still suck at this. Where'd you get the SC?
SC is from Land's End a couple of years ago. Pants are the first pair I ever made and IRL I would say they are a good couple of shades away from Navy and towards Royal.
