    It is fairly cool today and I like the colour.


    No. They are magnetic plastic flowers. They add whimsy.

    Just giving a "subtle" nod to Gianni Agnelli. I guess I could have the tie shortened by our tailor but I always want the larger blade hitting at the waist band regardless of where the slim blade hits. Im interested to know what you mean by tying it like David Letterman, I just tied a standard DFIH. You do have a good point on the tie color hitting on the shirt, I considered going with a green tie but the paisley on it wasn't much less "high impact." :D

    Thanks for the constructive criticism

    Woke up this morning & spontaneously decided to shave off the beard. Hey, it's really sunny, so it felt right to get shot of it... was subsequently told I looked 12 years younger... I'll take that! :)

    It'll most likely be back in the winter though.

    I don't normally do multiple detail close-ups, but I wore my very old, battered & cheap straw hat with its funky paisley band today, and I really like it, so... [​IMG]

    Cream/off-white linen jacket would be awesome with those trousers IMO.

    loss of beard makes me sad, but you do look good. tie looks a bit long, but likely just the way you are leaning on the desk.


    thanks! another thing for me to buy. HIYO!

    ive never rocked a white SC or white trou, this would be new territory for me.

    Yeah, I um'ed and ah'ed about it a little too, but in the end I went for it. I wanted to wear a summery tie and narrowed it down to this silk/linen blend and a darker brown tussah. The lighter orangey-brown seemed to work better with the jacket and tie than the darker brown.

    Letterman's ties hang several inches below his belt. I couldn't tell where yours hit in the far shot, but it looked crazy long in that last up close waist shot.

    Agreed. I still don't get French cuffs with tweed, and I would have picked different buttons for the coat (prob. dark brown horn), but overall it is quite nice.
