    I like the theory, but it's a bit too much red for me.

    I think the zip-up layer is too bulky for this; makes the jacket pull a bit. Love the tie choice for the jacket though.





    In hindsight, not so on board with today's tie choice. Should probably have gone earthy/tonal instead of contrasty/bold.

    Most excellent as always.


    Yes! :slayer:


    Looking good, my friend. Looking good.


    I like this. Your style is unmistakable and fits you very well.

    Couldn't disagree more. Now, if you'd suggested changes to the tie, PS and shirt collar...

    Grey ranging from light to mid is the right background for the great combo on top. You must have pulled the tie just before the shoot unless you literally are feeding it Viagra.

    +1. I bought my first bow tie two years ago, but have never worn it. It's interesting that it usually looks costumey but some guys can do it and our Swedish kompis is one of them.

    Layering up with a bit of suede, a bit of cashmere, a bit of wool and a bit of bad hairstyle.

    This tie does you no favors and I strongly suggest you sell it to me.

    Thank you!


    I take that as a compliment.


    Well, try it on sometimes, you may yet come around. It can be more low key than a loud tie imho.


    Also, thanks for the thumbs up guys!

    imo, it's a 50:50 situation. generally these kind of jackets are difficult to pair. the black is very dominant in the pattern and black shoes are "never" out of place.

    it's more a question of one wants to achieve with the combination.

    Oh no! Snow! (In Michigan, we are expecting snow on Sunday. I need to shop for a new snow blower asap.)

    Especially, I like the scarf. Nice duffel coat. A Hackett? That's a name unknown to me.
    You show how to be in style even in cold weather.
