    Thank you for your comments.

    For the record, the handkerchief is not by Tom Ford. And I certainly look like someone

    Allow me to clarify certain issues. I am actually a relatively old Styleforum member (older than most of the people that post in this thread), certainly not reincarnated. I recently abandoned my previous profile. This is, however, truly my third post on Styleforum. The first one (with exactly the same content) was in the "CBD WAYWRN: An Experiment" thread, but it has not (yet) been approved by the moderators -which is necesssary since this is a new account-, and the second contains the outfit pictures that you commented on.

    If my attempt at elegance is not disastrous, it is because I have been reading this and other threads for a very long time, carefully judging when I was ready to contribute. I chose New Year's Day. I know that the main purpose of this thread is not for members to critique outfits but for them to inspire each other through and regarding clothes, so I posted an outfit which I considered good. I wish more people were restrained about posting, refraining from doing so unless they were certain their post was (at least somehow) an actual contribution to this thread.

    Excuse the delayed reply, I have been meaning to respond but I was busy.

    I like every component of this, perhaps the pocket square the most.

    Thanks. The photo does them no justice. Nor does it accurately depict my eyes, which are actually a heavenly shade of green. The photographer has been sacked.

    Well you'll just have to take the pictures in an entirely different style at great expense and at the last minute.

    Thanks Patrick, for the vote of confidence, maybe i can express my thoughts a bit more eloquently this time.

    Sorry sugarbutch I disagree with you because :-

    All Lawyers need Pocket Squares Bud. Its called Marketing oneself, they need to look real good, and is the name of the game. A bit of flair here, a bit of fire there, kinda muted peacock. People buy what they can see, and what is it they see, well the lawyer himself of course. There is no other visible product, it's all in his head. He better make a good first impression.

    A nice well made, well fitted, meduim to dark suit to show substance and class.
    A crisp shirt, well fitting collar, and nice cuffs, with well shined shoes to show attention to detail.
    A tie with a well made knot to show a bit of attitude, and with enough of a boner to show he is the boss and means business.
    A Pocket Square with a bit of flair here, or a bit of fire there, to show a bit of passion.
    Hey even a thick solid folded white hank to show solidarity with the client. (or maybe even to cry into :embar: )

    Well that is what i would look for in a first impression of a lawyer I was going to pay big bucks to, to protect me, and even if i am not clever enough to be able to verbalize what i am looking for, the overall image is what counts. It does not matter whether i run a law firm or not, this is what i would be looking for, and if i did run a law firm, I should be setting the example, and I would definitely want all my employees to have the same values. That I can tell you for nothing!!

    Oh, and one last thought,
    The Pen, dont pull out a Bic ballpoint with a chewed end to sign the contract with, make it a decent one.

    Oh, and another :-
    If you going to want the judge to take you seriously, you better look real serious yourself.

    Just my opinion of course sugarbutch, and I am sure you will agree Patrick. Passion as you yourself said.

    Now there is a good New Years resolution.

    Thank you! I made it myself from vintage silk (ca 1950's).
