    didn't have any ironed shirts ready to wear in the morning
    so... what better way to hide a wrinkled shirt than throwing on a sweater?

    they were out of mediums so i got a large size ... may actually ask my tailor to slim this through the body (his wife does knit tailoring, i believe)

    Great suit UC, but above all, a beautiful ensemble of shirt, tie and PS. And the cufflinks going with it.

    Cheers

    May I be considered for the 1657368th best dressed shrink in training ever? I wholeheartedly second your assessment of Dr. Holdfast ! Most of the psychiatrists and psychologists I work with are not very interested in even wear a dress shirt...

    FWIW (theme of the day) I look like a brooks brothers ad today. Dunno if that is a good or bad thing. No pix of shoes today but burgundy mcallisters. Trousers are light light grey if there is any question.

    Was told by one of our building maintenance workers today that I looked like I should be in Congress. I believe he meant it as a compliment. :D

    I personally endorse this. Excellent look and good fit. Suspenders are nice too. I see you got the sutherland memo...

    ^ Not really Congress, but military for sure. Navy, I'm thinking.

    P.S. No Rear Admiral

    OK, as it's choc brown, it works better than I initially thought. Still not a fan, but it's better than when I thought it was purple (and as you know, I have a purple cord jacket myself!). It really does look purple in that outdoor pic though; early morning? I've noticed my photos get a blue tint in the morning and a yellow one in the afternoon. Presumably something to do with the angle of the light.

    You are the best dressed shrink, ever. Or maybe things are different across the pond.

    Thank you. I'm not sure that's much of a compliment... Actually, to be serious for a moment, there's a really broad range of outfits. The clear majority here wear typical middle-class professional/doctor-type clothes (i.e. mid-market department store stuff, matched with minimal thought). But some will wear higher-end casual gear, and some do wear higher-end tailored items. There's some correlation between subspeciality and dress style, but a greater correlation between exact role (and location) and dress style. I changed role back in 2010, and since then, I'm a bit less frequently in a very businessy suit, and a bit more often in a more casual suit or odd jacket outfit. I've had to alter my wardrobe slightly to reflect this with items I've bought (and sold) since then. Of course, at the end of the day, the most telling variable is whether one is actually at all interested in clothes. Personally, I enjoy them, and also happen to think they're an important aspect of non-verbal communication and they're loaded with archetypal meaning, so it's worth considering their influence.

    Citan: I think we can move you a lot higher up the shrink-in-training clothes list. Your look today is really good esp. the jacket & tie. Certainly better put together than I was as a student and my first years of practice. In the final analysis, clothes are no substitute for good communication skills or thoughtful understanding of a situation. But I'm a believer is taking help wherever you can get it, and I think having an idea about how your dress might be interpreted by others gives you that little bit more data to work with.

    deandbn - thanks also. Put it down more to good fortune & practice than time.
