    I was in music school too, so I can usually tell the type and cut 'em some slack. Trust me.. these folks didn't just get done practicing their etudes!

    Sorry for the shitty pics. I haven't yet reached the point where I'm self-absorbed enough to get a tripod/other means of taking good pictures. Soon enough I'm sure.

    Suit: Zegna Napoli Couture
    Shirt: Tyrwhitt
    Tie: Zegna
    PS: Talbott
    Shoes: Florsheim Imperial


    This was my first time ever wearing a pocket square, and the one - and only - pocket square I own (thanks Spoo!). I tried. REALLY TRIED not to "match too close", but every other tie I could come up with was either ridiculously boring (blue), or just plain ridiculous (red/purple/pink). I tried. I have more pocket squares en route soon, so I'll give it another shot eventually.

    Alfred Sargent. They are 3 years old or so, and were made for Thin Red Line, a store no longer selling AS shoes. I am not sure what last they are on, or what the current AS equivalent would be.

    My father gave it to me after hearing me complain about not being able to find something similar for under $500. It has no make-tag, but it's pretty damn old.

    I forgot all about the thin red line. I wonder why they stopped stocking AS shoes? Seemed to me that they had quite a good thing going on there.

    I think there was an issue with pricing, etc. From what I remember, many of us received those shoes at a substantial discount.

    Ahh yes. There was a sale on and I think AS were none too pleased when they were revealed as the maker.

    That's right. Too bad... that was my first English-made/high quality dress shoe. :)

    Where I live, most people try to "dress up," in some way, shape, or form, for things like operas and symphony performances. The old guys put on ill-fitting suits, the young guys put on every designer label that's supposed to make you cool (everything from suits to jeans), and only a handful of guys look stylish. The young guys tend to do it better, even when wearing jeans, because they seem to be on top of style trends and whatnot. And the ladies always look better than the guys.

    Just my observations.



    White linen squares with colored edges are always good choices; also, I have found that my collection of silk squares, in various solid colors, is pretty versatile.
