    This is inspiring. Does that shirt colour have a name?
    I believe the board consensus would probably be "shockingly garish, especially with a contrast collar". [​IMG] Having said that, you can also find it in the Thomas Mason Silverline book; it's very green, but with a slight blue hue. I don't know what the best name would be for it. Someone here called it "teal", which is probably the most accurate, though teal is a bit bright for it I think. It's somewhere in between teal and the colour of US money, in real life. EDIT: I recall now that PandA named it Robin's Egg Blue, which is a good descriptor too. Hope that helps! Parker's looking smashing as usual, I see. [​IMG]

    Killin it, ctp. Keep it coming that way!

    Generally i am a big fan of your stuff, but i think this might have been better without the scarf...

    ...

    Those 4x1 db always look kinda dated, but you bring it togehter nicely with the hat. Shorten the trou and you can keep it, i guess.

    ...

    Nay, this ic all so well-balanced and thought-out...you are trying to hard. NOT.[​IMG]
    Great stuff, Mike!

    There will be thunderstorms in NYC by the afternoon, so today's fit was chosen with "what's next to the dry cleaner's" in mind.

    Looks good - only I would have swapped the shirt for a plain or a stripe, seems a bit too close to the SC.

    And those thunderstorms sucked today. [​IMG]

    This wins poast of the day solely on the Dimebag Darrelesque smiley.

    [*] This is a Gianni Versace Couture from god knows what 80s year. I know it's not contemporary.

    SS 1998 or 1999. You took in a size 56?!?

    I've got a perfect puzzle for you
    SPOOmpa Loompa oompa de de
    If you are a wise you'll listen to me

    What do you get when you wear purple cord
    Flitting around like the Chairman of the Board
    What do you do when you don such a hue
    Who do you think you are, you're Spoo!

    SPOOmpa Loompa oompa de dah
    If you wear purple you will go far
    You will bed scores of loose women too
    Like the SPOOmpa Loompa doompa de do

    This pic illustrates exactly why I used to crop my head. But, ya'll wanted head shots, so you get them...complete with me in the middle of a blink.

    Time for red.

    Have a good one,

    Mike


    I just got my first pair of red pants.. (thanks Ed) thanks for the pointers. Although you know I am not going to do an emblematic [​IMG]

    My recent run of leery outfits continues... Misjudged the weather today though; it was pretty cool despite the sunshine around lunchtime as I was heading out, so thought I'd wear this flannel for one of the last times until autumn. It was OK over lunch, even sitting outside in the sun, but by mid-afternoon, and walking around town, things were starting to get a bit hot under the collar! [​IMG]

    You know I love this suit, but not sure the green tie was the right color here. A pink would have been great with a white shirt.

    [​IMG]

    Dont stop.

    One minor nitpick is the tie knot should have been a bit bigger to fill up the collar, but thats just a tiny thing that 99.5% of the population would not notice.

    Summer loafin' today.

    You make me sick with your consistency. Very nice.

    ..

    Tell me more about this PS.

    I know this is a strange thing to focus on, but I love those socks with that outfit.

    Cashmere...

    Little busy up top brethren, maybe a solid would have wrapped it up better - but overall continue your upward trajectory please. [​IMG]

    Kids got you up that late, huh?

    That's Armani's "thing", ugly huge bellbottom pants. Not sure how anybody likes the look but hey, if that's what you're into, who am I to judge? I concur though, what shirt is that Spoozmeister!?

    Was you saying the jacket and tie are actually blue a joke or something? Because they look 100% brown on my laptop monitor and my phones screen. Either your camera has gone insane or my sarcasm meter is busted. Nice look either way. I think a different tie like a grenadine and a more interesting square would've knocked this one out the park.

    I also complimented the man for rocking great browns lately. Glad it's not just my eyes playing tricks...

    These are Crockett & Jones Hayling. On the 366 last. I'm happy to finally find a loafer last that fits.
