You'll get Vox points for that one, Spoo. Maybe not for the white shirt, but Doc will cover that.
Yes, that looks nice.
"Nice outfit Mister. Add a PS and dimple to complete the outfit."
"i really like your full length shots, it really helps appreciate your fits. looks very good"
"Nice stitching on the coat collar. A splashy tie."
Thank you guys for comments and feedback
You can keep the shirt and the PS but I'll accept the rest of that fit as my birthday present, thank you
I love the coat + tie colors.
Edit* Double spoiler tags, obviously not a pro at using this forum yet.
You really are channeling Doc. Looks great!
This is great, what is the fabric? Good for summer?
Lurker here. For those wondering what IST had hanging through his lapel in the past week I think it's an eye glass holder or something similar to it per this article:
Suit designed by myself in "grisaglia"
Oxford tailored shirt
How much bespoke stuff do you have? With your experience and eye for colors, you could probably do a very good job at desiging stuff.
Are you really feeling today's ensemble? The pants don't look like they belong - they mess with the color scheme of the top half IMO.
As for truly bespoke "stuff", I have absolutely none - I've never expended that amount of cash on attire. I have a total of two made-to-measure suits, both from Brooks Bros. - a navy stripe three-piece (not the bold one - that was OTR from New & Lingwood in London) and a mid-blue glen plaid D/B. Otherwise, what you see on me is RTW/OTR - and usually not bought at full price, either. Clothing design is as much architecture as color choices - construction, particularly in menswear, is all-important, and is a subject on which I am less than educated. I merely entertain myself with consumption, and my background in art (a degree in art history) gives me license to use more color than the average man on the street (sometimes to good effect, sometimes not, as I've been informed in these fora).
You have an art history BA? I thought you were a lawyer or financial something or other.
Having a BA in Art History (actually a combined studio art/art history major) makes one more interesting at parties, but does a much-less-than-admirable job of paying the bills. Being a VP in IT for a large bank can be dull or annoying (or both), but the income stream has proved very useful over the years.
