    Cuffs look good and very little to no break is my favorite, as well. Can't see the shoes but they look good from here. The tie looks fun and pops on the suit which is slightly dimpling at the shoulders. Sleeve length? Check! Overall looks very nice.

    Wait, what color is the shirt? The sharply edged P.S. would look better with a stark white shirt, I think.

    Your iPhone looks huge. Are you 4 feet tall? :confused:

    That's the trick you pull with your catch after a mediocre day fishing.

    Both of you are wearing great-looking ties. Somehow, I don't think either goes well with their respective outfit. Something about the material maybe, rather than the pattern (too fuzzy-textured?). Everything else about both looks is great IMO.





    Talking of ties that may divide opinion.... [​IMG]

    This is certainly much better. I am still trying to work out the aesthetic ground on which you decided against it...

    The tie is great. The suit is great (my favourite of yours, as I have said before). But not together, I think.

    Thank you. That charoal herringbone with purple flowers tie is a silk Hickey Freeman I picked up last year along with a couple others during a sale. As for those wanting full shot pics, it may not happen for a while. I was going to try and take some last night, but a bird "wished me luck" while I was walking to the train station after work. ( :FU seagull). I couldn't make this up. It sounded like the seagull was laughing afterwards too. At least with rain today I have umbrella protection. A rainy blue Tuesday.

    I like this but it seems like a lot of blue - in my novice opinion I think something like a green pocket square would set the outfit off.

    :lol: :confused:


    Actually I think shaving that thing that was growing on your face was a huge improvement. I can appreciate your deciding to change the way you pose for the camera, just saying it isn't the most flattering choice. Having said that I stand by my 'tell it like you see it' perspective, so I can understand the saltiness here. Also, I am not in disguise, reside in NYC if you'd ever like to talk about it over, say, a Scotch. My treat. :)

    Dude. I had a dream I was out painting teh town with you and the wimminz and was wearing that olive plaid jacket you have [like the (awesome) tie in this pic] but it was a suit. I said, "look, your suit fits me!". You looked over at me in disbelief. The coat was double breasted but I had it done up in a single-breast fashion. Weird.

    CP, I tend to think of large scale gingham shirts as more casual. Try it with a single breasted jacket (say, a solid navy hopsack or summery linen) & see what you think.
