    The weather finally promises to be spring-like today, with highs in the mid-60's/18C, and sunny.

    As per the suggestion of NOBD, I've raised level at which I set my tripod - results are as below.


    Great angle. Much better.

    ..

    your SC collection is enviable.

    Robot:

    Looking much better/cleaner today.

    ...

    Badass bro - but I think there are just too many straight lines - maybe a paisley or a dot tie or ps to break up the absolute verticality?

    They are Echium they are pretty cool huh?
    ps thanks on the suit


    You have the best backdrops on SF. Gotta get me some Echium.

    ..

    Tie is great - would love to see you play around more with color, and some more daring stuff. It looks good on you.

    We seem to have channelled the same "bold shirt" memo today.

    My favorite Holdfast suit? Check.

    Excellently paired with a great tie and PS. You are the one on a roll lately. [​IMG]


    Back to regular scheduled programme (unbalanced colours and mixing odd coats with non-suit trou):


    Like it all except the shoes.

    I am trying to understand this feedback .... too many straight lines. I think Mike's fit is pretty spot on ... and paisley will really throw a wrench into it.

    And this too, especially coming from you Spoo. blue/orange is classic and pretty basic.

    No doubt its spot on - nothing at all wrong with it - I just have a personal thing for too many straight lines with no motion. Shirt, suit, tie all have perfect straight lines. A paisley PS would have been what I would have done with it. But hey, thats just me.

    It is classic and basic - Im just not a fan (old high school colors lol) - but for PG's look, it came off so overly saturated, I think thats why I wasnt sold on it. The tie is insanely nice though.

    Today's fit qualifies for the Linen challange only by virtue of the fact that my PS is linen - otherwise, I am in the same weather pattern as the Spoo-meister - too cool by far for summer fabrics.

    I am attending a benefit cocktail party/dinner/silent auction this evening at a painfully fashionable venue, a former bank branch in the Bowery. (The thought of drinking in the Bowery still evokes images of wrinkled brown paper bags containing Thunderbird or Night Train, but times apparently have changed.)

    As this will be a very mixed crowd, I thought that pushing the limits on attire would be appropriate, hence today's "costuming".

    Attire is as follows:

    Suit and braces - New & Lingwood, London
    Shirt - Brooks Bros.
    Tie - Charvet, via Bergdorf's
    Cufflinks - Niletti Creations, NYC
    Pocket square - Syms, acquired shortly after the end of the last Ice Age
    Socks - Brooks Bros.
    Shoes - Crockett & Jones Edgware - their first outing since purchase.
    Covert cloth coat - Charles Tyrwhitt
    Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center, NYC
    Scarf - Frank Stella, NYC (circa 1993)

    FWIW, and have at it . . .
