    :lol: :confused:


    Actually I think shaving that thing that was growing on your face was a huge improvement. I can appreciate your deciding to change the way you pose for the camera, just saying it isn't the most flattering choice. Having said that I stand by my 'tell it like you see it' perspective, so I can understand the saltiness here. Also, I am not in disguise, reside in NYC if you'd ever like to talk about it over, say, a Scotch. My treat. :)

    Dude. I had a dream I was out painting teh town with you and the wimminz and was wearing that olive plaid jacket you have [like the (awesome) tie in this pic] but it was a suit. I said, "look, your suit fits me!". You looked over at me in disbelief. The coat was double breasted but I had it done up in a single-breast fashion. Weird.

    CP, I tend to think of large scale gingham shirts as more casual. Try it with a single breasted jacket (say, a solid navy hopsack or summery linen) & see what you think.

    All in all, the suit is a bit too long all around and the chalkstripes are nearly identical (shirt v suit). Will be up for sale since I'm dropping in weight (44 going on a muscular 40)

    CP, I think I understand what you're trying to do, and I applaud. It's damned difficult. This is one of the cases where I think you either go all out and wear a solid navy tie, or dial it back and add more contrast with a B&W gingham.

    Also, if you go the one-color route, I think it's much easier if there's a marked contrast in textures:

    I think Windsor got the shirt-tie pairing wrong here.

    Solid black tie, I think, Holdfast. I like the pairing of the small blue graph check in the shirt and the bold check in the coat.

    Thanks for the input. The shirt is white. It just didn't show up well in the picture. And I'm wearing dark brown Allen Edmonds fifth avenue. Thanks again.

    Weird shadows today, sorry about the crop jobs. Also, apologies for the "tightness" yesterday, I didn't realize the way I was standing until well after I posted...the pants aren't THAT tight.

    Last days of tweed...keeping it simple, new clients today and didn't want to "offend"

    Another Mannby & Rorling Tie today. It's my first bowtie, so I hope that I'm pulling it off decently.

    Great bow-tie. However, it might be just me but I think that not only do you need to work on tying a bit but also it does not work with that shirt - it seems to dominate the collar completely.

    Think this looks outstanding. Doesn't look long to me but it's your suit. If you're set on selling how tall are you and can you let me know when you are selling it. Just the three piece?

    I can't tell if you're a sock or not, yet.

    Hey Holdfast Re: tie and outfit not coherent You're right. I just wore the tie for the heck of it, knowing it'd probably would not go with the navy sharkskin; I was bored. I think the problem is that the tie is at once fuzzy and shiny, which clashes with the sheen of the suit; not sure how else to put it. Think I'll wait for my incoming navy casual suit, which has more texture and patch pockets. P.S. Great casual suit you have there!

    Four patterns is a lot for me, so I kept colors to a minimum.
