    Sorry dude. Its a personal opinion. I just don't like the way cords look on the top half, and only fine wale on the bottom half. If you like it, knock yourself out, I bet you can find at least ten things on any one of my outfits that will have half the board wanting to shoot their monitor.

    FWIW you look like you'd never make an officer's position in the chastity club, decidedly not fuddy enough for a cord coat.

    Is the Isaia jacket OTR or MTM? What is the material?




    The fit of this jacket looks pretty good. If you're looking for some hardcore critiques from the more knowledgeable members here, you should post well-lit full-body photos.

    Deets on the tie? Subtle, but rich in color and effect.

    So I can wear that blazer with jeans as long as I keep it buttoned? :D

    Should probably in MC Casual, but haven't been here for a while.

    Dark as the weather

    Patrick, FYI, the Cindy Sherman retrospective was large and well-attended. I'd never seen her stuff in a gallery before - the parody in her work comes out more up close (her makeup sensibility is like that of a demented drag queen). However, that didn't stop me from noting that some of the female attendees last night came perilously close to some of Ms. Sherman's images :embar:.

    It's raining in NYC, and it's Friday - no suit, less bling, more comfort.

    SC, shirt, tie, trousers, and shoes - BB
    PS - Robert Talbott
    Raincoat - Burberry
    Scarf - Galeries Lafayette, Paris (circa 1964)
    Hat - Weatherproof

    These colours reminded me strongly of the mid/late '90s as I was picking them out, to the point of it almost feeling retro. See what you think...

    Thanks so much for the info. I love her images. She does amazing things with makeup and setting/lighting. It is easy to gloss over them if you don't know a lot about it. My girlfriend is a makeup artist so I residually know a lot about that kind of stuff. Naturally, I was introduced to Cindy's work through her. Unfortunately, I can't make it to the Modern tomorrow (g/f's working), but hopefully Sunday.

    sounds good to me-- I'm always amazed at the combos people like yourself come up with for navy suits. I'd never think of pairing ties like this with a solid navy, looks great! This is one of the reasons I read this forum, to get some future ideas. thanks!
