    I disagree with the above critique... I personally think this works great, I like the color pattern and there is a hint of purple in the jacket that tie the whole thing together... with regards to cufflinks, I don't necessarily believe a look has to be "congruent" to work, I get what you are saying but I think that Sugar knows the "rules", and has deviated from them very effectively to an overall armonious result... all in all I like this a lot.... just my $ 0.02

    Yes, it is.

    Thanks.

    Here is today's effort. Suit is Isaia, shirt is Polo, tie is Altea (and has been seen here a gajillion times). For the record, I like Club Collars, and I wore them before Boardwalk Empire came out. :)

    I agree with you. And I think this idea that tweed is 'country' is not really so significant in the C21st.

    Nope; looks fine now. The v of the sweater now covers the points/buttons of the shirt collar, creating only a single aggregate v shape instead of the two differently angled v shapes when both shirt and jumper openings were fully visible. I appreciate that explanation verges on the Foo-ish in red squiggly line opacity, but it made sense when I typed it... ;)


    Plum cord jackets of hte world unite. :)

    I'm not so convinced. It takes a long time for the associations of certain types of clothes with certain roles to disappear from the collective unconscious. Tweed is certainly increasingly used in non-country contexts by a variety of designers and the public, so the country association is fading (to be replaced, at least in this country, by "oh that's what the new Doctor Who wears" it seems to me... ;) ). But overall, I think the country association remains fairly tight. Of course, for the majority of the population the "old man" tweed association is also pretty tight, so one has to pick and choose which popular associations one cares about...



    PS. is there any reason the 100 character limit has returned when the thumbs-up comments box? I much preferred the unrestricted length it's been allowing lately. :(

    Because I am still somewhat of a sartorial noob, marginally-equipped intellectually, and of questionable moral character (by contrast, my acumen with animal husbandry is the stuff of legends), I also feel that tweed is better served by those 80+ or quail hunters. Or the probably deadly combination of the two:

    Stripes in shirt are too close to stripes in suit. Otherwise, looks really good. Just leave the jacket unbuttoned and you've got some disaffected panache :)

    great fit, tie is for the long haul - i also like these collars, although i thought they were just called round collars (or penny collars, i guess), but haven't seen them at all on SF. i also liked them before boardwalk empire, which i've actually never seen, but after edward hardwicke in the granada sherlock holmes.

    i think the country association only really holds true for england. i once (before i knew anything about clothes) thought of tweed as sort of an all-purpose sport coat fabric for academic/intellectual types.
