    It was a black market tie swap of sorts :laugh:

    I will add some advice though, never sell/trade your Panta ties!

    I wish I wouldn't have worn this shirt, but I have been neglecting ironing and this was my only clean light blue shirt that went with the three piece suit I was wearing.... well it wasn't a striped shirt at least.

    The tie is from Forex, picture doesn't do justice to the colour! I am wearing my recently acquired Samuelsohn three piece chalk stripe suit, I had the coat off when I took the picture

    Mike, while not my style I have no issues with it except for the tie. It seems nice enough and I like a repp/regimental in this context but too matchy matchy in this outfit for my tastes.

    I'm just starting to feel like I am layering and matching patterns reasonably ok. Is there any reason not to wear this windowpane shirt with this windowpane jacket?

    I'm not a big fan of two articles of clothing having a windowpane pattern, doesn't look terrible to me though since the SC is very dark, and the windowpane is dark as well.


    Care to elaborate?

    I hate small lapels, but otherwise I kind of like the coat.

    I figured you would love it Matt. Glad to see my instincts were solid. :)


    This should be good.

    Yep, it is matchy-matchy. No doubt.

    In hindsight, you're not wrong. I looked at it again today and wondered what I was thinking using those shoes and trousers with it... I still kind of like the waistcoat/tie/shirt despite it being busy... but not with those jacket/trousers/shoes at all. Thanks to you and a couple of others for the honest critique.






    Dressed more soberly today. I had to go into London for an appointment; I really don't like visiting the capital as getting anywhere seems to take twice as long as it should and it's just too busy & grimy for my liking. I did treat myself to a pretty cool Drakes unicorn-patterned silk/wool pocket square on the way home by way of ameliorating the day, however.

    Jayzus, Mike. Narrow and notched lapels on the DB? You're staking your claim, brother. How is this look playing in New Orleans today?
