    Ourmaninlisbon said " UC, as you well know I'm not a fan of caps, though I understand why you (oh! that New york weather) must use them (and I really dig your hats).But always will be a fan of Ferragamo ties.CheersVic"

    The wearing of a cap today has a most practical purpose. I am attending a business function this evening at a restaurant near my office, one will be overly well-attended, and the restaurant has limited space in its cloakroom. I thought it wiser for the longevity of my fedoras that I wear a cap this evening, something that can be folded and stuffed into the scarf pocket of my coat, rather than crushed by careless placement within the cloakroom.

    Suit looks good Spoo, and the shoes are awesome. I'm starting to wish I had bought those instead of my darlton's.

    Details on the shirt?

    Edit: I have a hard enough time getting my wife to take pictures for me in the winter, and this is without a child up all night :laugh:

    Don't you have a tripod? Or are you still using the iphone?

    Would have been better with another darker grey patterned jacket I think. Do you have one?

    Good feedback, thank you. Before settling on the navy, I actually tried it out with two grey jackets (one the top half of a herringbone tweed suit, the other a donegal). Grey jacket was the original plan I had in my mind while getting dressed. The donegal was too close in shade to the trousers; the herringbone was better, but still a bit too light. What I needed ideally was a really dark charcoal tweed (eg. perhaps in with similar sort of pattern to accent it, like the navy jacket I ended up wearing). I've noticed the absence of such an item in my wardrobe several times already this year, so I'm beginning to think it might be a good addition in time for next year.

    Thanks again for feedback!

    I've been watching for this, even stayed up past my bedtime. Did I miss it? Or did Mr. Corbera's better judgment prevail?
