    And a scowl for both days? I think the Dupioni looks amazing, and truly the mark of a gentleman that one actually has a suit that is perfect for garden parties (we will wait until you are invited to the races to see your full Morning Suit)...but I would have been shaking in my boots anytime someone got within five feet of me with an hors d'oeuvres or cocktail. Did your dapperness survive the event? [​IMG]


    ETA: I think the accessories with the Dupioni are spot-on as well, forgot to mention that...


    I will learn how to smile, I promise. I survived....no major stains! [​IMG]

    Like the cloth here, but these look to have a disproportionately high front rise. Maybe it's just the pic?

    Dupioni from the other pic is very nice; great color.


    They are a bit high in the rise. It is not too high though. Polo, of course.


    First fit: i think a darker ps would have been better. But nice shoez!
    Second fit: great stuff, i might have preffered a brown or tan tie, taking up the colour of the trou. Apart from that, a winner!


    Darker? Ok, maybe. I was trying to look very "springy," thus the pink, as opposed to white.

    Those pants are black, white and blue. I guess the blend made them seem to have brown tones.

    Really excellent colours and nice fit. Top notch, I'd say.


    More closed fronts or a lower buttoning point on the jacket would probably suit the rise of those trousers better. Are the trousers part of a suit normally, by any chance? I have that issue with one or two suits; if I wear their trousers separately, it has to be in winter when I can add an odd waistcoat or jumper to mask the rise.


    Yeah, they are orphaned suit pants. I think they would be perfect with a slim fitting DB.

    MBreinin, you rock. Love the salvo of fits.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] And, you are my hero, Neo. Thanks!!!

    So you know my story here (or there)...

    If I were forced to assume someone's life on this forum based on the WAYWRN pictures alone I'd be torn between Spoo and Neofinitia.

    Spoomeister, am I mistaken, or is today's tie Charvet? No one else makes silk jacquard quite so reflective, or am I wrong?

    Elegant, as always, and authoritative as well - perfect for the first day of playing the boss with a new employee.

    Im absolutely knackered from a ridiculously busy day of training [​IMG] and teh new asst is most defininitely SF approved [​IMG] Mike - Pants look much better with cuffs Holdfast - Great red pants. Cant wait to wear mine. Are they Panta? Spoozy - That seems dangerously close to a SpooPose.... [​IMG] (great fit though) PatrickBOOTH - MOAR. Fabric looks great. Too much break in the pants though [​IMG] Lufty - Go USA! Threadbearer -Another SpooPose? Make sure you pay the royalties on the way out, please. Crusty - Im feeeeeeeling the cowboy boots!! To all those who commented today, thanks. The tie is a Charvet, purchased at the Vendome boutique in Paris. The PS appears matchy-ish, but the tie was grey/yellow and the PS was hunter green with yellow tips.

    He's quite the globetrotter, but by all indications, you live in a Hellenistic Palace.

    I was fully prepared to take a load of isht about the boots, though not necessarily expecting it from you - an honest opinion, at least.

    yep, that's indeed irritating.

    they are outstandingly nice. what leather are they made of? it's hard to judge from this picture. can you do a close up?
