C&J Westfields for Barney's NY
All in all, the suit is a bit too long all around and the chalkstripes are nearly identical (shirt v suit). Will be up for sale since I'm dropping in weight (44 going on a muscular 40)
CP, I think I understand what you're trying to do, and I applaud. It's damned difficult. This is one of the cases where I think you either go all out and wear a solid navy tie, or dial it back and add more contrast with a B&W gingham.
Also, if you go the one-color route, I think it's much easier if there's a marked contrast in textures:
I think Windsor got the shirt-tie pairing wrong here.
Solid black tie, I think, Holdfast. I like the pairing of the small blue graph check in the shirt and the bold check in the coat.
Thanks for the input. The shirt is white. It just didn't show up well in the picture. And I'm wearing dark brown Allen Edmonds fifth avenue. Thanks again.
Thank you guys for your feedback
Weird shadows today, sorry about the crop jobs. Also, apologies for the "tightness" yesterday, I didn't realize the way I was standing until well after I posted...the pants aren't THAT tight.
Last days of tweed...keeping it simple, new clients today and didn't want to "offend"
Another Mannby & Rorling Tie today. It's my first bowtie, so I hope that I'm pulling it off decently.
Close-ups of the bowtie - "Le Wool":
Great bow-tie. However, it might be just me but I think that not only do you need to work on tying a bit but also it does not work with that shirt - it seems to dominate the collar completely.
Think this looks outstanding. Doesn't look long to me but it's your suit. If you're set on selling how tall are you and can you let me know when you are selling it. Just the three piece?
I can't tell if you're a sock or not, yet.
Hey Holdfast Re: tie and outfit not coherent You're right. I just wore the tie for the heck of it, knowing it'd probably would not go with the navy sharkskin; I was bored. I think the problem is that the tie is at once fuzzy and shiny, which clashes with the sheen of the suit; not sure how else to put it. Think I'll wait for my incoming navy casual suit, which has more texture and patch pockets. P.S. Great casual suit you have there!
Four patterns is a lot for me, so I kept colors to a minimum.
Aha! I have replied to Ed's message in that thread. Thank you.
