Guess so, 2 for 2...
Nice one, Vic!
I dig the whole setup, nice one, Crusty!
This one just says: "Get the fuck out of my way or you´ll be overrun". Wow, Spoozer.
Damn, now that is an arch on the tie and a great knot. I´m envying you right now.
And there goes my stuff...
They're LP, but I can't remember what material they are. Yeah, they're cool. Just needing more ideas how to use them...
so that means...
you've been looking creepy forever
It's a special talent. Honed further over the years, mind.
Crusty, while we are on the topic of hats, I can't remember off the top of my head (pun intended) if you have ever worn a Homburg hat. I think it would suit your style.
You look great today, HF. Everything goes well together.
I like the paisley tie, Dennis.
As it is, I do own a black Homburg, and I have posted pictures of myself wearing it, though it teeters dangerously on the borderline of "costume" (and, I am sure, that there are those out there who feel that it falls very much over the border - but that's not unusual with many of my fits - c'est la vie en rose).
Ok, level with me fellas, is the chest just too big on this one for me? It's a 42L (which is my normal size), and I already had my tailor bring the waist in a bit (I think...I don't recall now), but I think it looks a bit big in the chest. Does it look salvageable to you all?
Suit: Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece
Shirt: Brooks Brothers "Luxury" line FC
Tie: Charles Tyrwhitt
Shoes: Florsheim Imperial wingtips
Cheers, yup, Ercoles.
Thanks FM, Tie is actually raw silk, and anything but slick, photo doesn't really capture the uber texture this has. Its actually a vintage piece Ercole had made a VERY long time ago, Frank may have been just a glimmer in his eye when that tie was made.
Better than horribly frozen head day.

timeotune: I think one sleeve of your shirt is too long
and the jacket is way too tight.
I like the tie but as the others have said, way way to tight. I know you have copped this criticism before so I don't mean to be piling on, but the button is pulling sideways at the button point it is so tight. Overall both the jacket and trousers look a size too small, even for a slim fit.
