    Fwocker. I need a pair of snuff suede this summer. I was set on chukkas till I saw the above and the below. Now I am thinking I should get a pair of oxfords. You guys are not making this easy. [​IMG]

    Striped tie for gdl. Tan cotton suit too casual for cbd? I think I could use a pair of mid-brown or tan calf shoes.

    No A/C, brutal.

    Record highs here the past couple days...but a meat locker in my office. I could wear the Nutter in here. [​IMG]

    Crust, what is that white line around(or on) your shirt? I always see them and I can't say I know what they are. I also want to say that, I like the new post in your photos. Nice work!

    Great shoes, and very toned-down Spoo, but elegant as always (even if your chest is swelling outwards a shade - but who doesn't want bigger pectorals, no?)

    Well-fitting clothes are an excellent motivation to maintain weight, that's for sure!

    The colours are very pleasant and the fit is good too. I think tab collars do not suit you, but then again, who do they suit, really? So have fun with them!


    I think I prefer this suit rolled to the bottom button, extending the lapel line. The lapel roll is soft enough to cope with it. Further to suggestions from others, I've tried pairing this suit with a contrast collar shirt; I think that also suits it better, so thank you to those making that suggestion.


    New, well-fitting, and blindingly expensive (at least for me) clothes are a definite motivation to eschew excess caloric intake.

    As for tab collars, they are a peculiarity of mine - one of many . . .

    I agree that your suit jacket looks good rolled from the bottom button. I like today's shirt, but perhaps the lack of love that it has engendered (at least from one source) is due to the exposure of the collar band below and behind the tie?

    Crust, what is that white line around(or on) your shirt? I always see them and I can't say I know what they are. I also want to say that, I like the new post in your photos. Nice work!

    The white line is a band of paper put on my shirts by my shirt laundry in order to keep the shirt in place while folded, and thanks for the positive comments!

    The shirt and tie (and suit) are all Brooks Bros. of various vintages - the shirt was MTM many years ago, the tie and suit are much more recent purchases. Shoes today are C & J via Barney's.

    So you do not use BB MTM program anymore?

    I don't know what it is about this picture that I like. It is by far my favorite picture of you. When you're sitting, relaxed, and the lighting is not unbearable, you look fabulous!

    IMO, this desperately needs a shot of color/contrast. Looks like a nice suit, but it's almost invisible.
    Can quite understand this comment; it's monochrome, even by my standards. The suit does have a (very) subtle coloured micro-stripe so it's not quite as boring in real life.


    Brown in town today, and cotton seersucker at that.

    Like, wow.

    Technically, I am referring to myself in the third animal.

    Blimey.

    I like it better rolled to the bottom as well. I also like this tie with it, but not the shirt.

    Mike

    +1. I actually think the suit looks great - but the contrast-collar shirt pushes this over the edge.

    ^I think the contrast is what makes it work!
