    (0.5)(1 spray of fragrance) is sufficient.

    Thank you all for your kind words yesterday. It made my day! And I realize that the trousers should have been pulled up properly before the photo...

    Just a quick meeting with a client this morning. Will not wear the monks two days in a row but an hour won´t harm them.

    Suit from Tiger of Sweden in charcoal 120´s four season wool from Loro Piana.
    Tie from Altea.

    If it is a venue not visited previously, you would not know. But if it is a "public" place--school, concert hall, church, etc....--you could expect to see such a request.

    Looking really sharp, however no love on the skinny lapels

    I wonder why the trouser showed up like this? Is it the angle and posture which caused that?

    [COLOR=FF00AA]no one should be able to "smell" you until they are in the proximity zone in which it would be appropriate... which means if your not hugging or kissing me you don't smell me![/COLOR]

    Maybe the Surgeon General should order this statement to be placed on every bottle of fragrance. :)

    Like the old Brylcreem commercial said, "A little dab will do ya."

    Tim, first of all, I don't have pictures, and I also don't have any classy outfits either. FYI I am fat and old and ugly and I live in the depths of darkest Africa where at best they have grass skirts and loin skins, and even those don't fit so well. Wonderful texture though. :D

    Secondly, this is not about me or my fits, it is about you and your fits, and you were the one that asked for 'opinions' which i gave without malice.

    Now:
    The most important element of style is fit.... and most of your outfits do not fit you.
    The next comes colour, texture and shape... pink comes to mind, if nothing else.
    Many people have commented adversely on your current outfit over the previous couple of pages besides myself.
    Many people have also commented adversely on most of your previous outfits over the previous hundreds of pages.

    So I would advise you to sincerely take note of the general consensus.
    Subject closed.

    I never wear cologne in a working environment it feels unprofessional to me and I think it gives the client I'm meeting with the impression that we are not going over the numbers but rather on a surprise date.
    I also only use unscented wash lotions because I don't really dig smelling like a fruit bowl after every shower.

    If I'm on a date however I wear just a little of this

    As for the legs. I was standing with my legs straight and since they bow backwards at the knee the trousers look strange...
    The skinny lapels are a scandinavian designer thing I think and I am to be honest not a big fan but I still quite like the suit which is why I bought it.

    I've a cocktail party to attend after work, so I thought that I'd bring out the "heavy artillery", sartorially speaking . . .

    Suit - Paul Stuart
    Shirt & braces - BB
    Tie - Charvet
    PS - Ashear
    Cufflinks - Thomas Pink
    Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand

    Since we seem to be playing the scent game today, I'm wearing Penhaligon's Eau Sans Pareil, the old formulation (it went out of production, and then was brought back, but in name only - they totally screwed up the scent - grrrrrr).

    What are you wearing (smelling like?) today. I inadvertently started a trend..
    Pants are a blue tic weave, lighter than the navy they appear like. Wearing Tom Ford Grey Vetiver.
    Angles make a difference, I think my jacket looks better in the mirror picture...too bad I don't have a place to plant my phone at that height and angle.
