    The past 24 hours of this thread are the most entertaining it's been for months.

    Ah! But the shirt is light blue! Bad picture, I reckon. I put up a couple of different pictures where, maybe, the color is a bit better. Terrible light, today. Gray skies.

    I really like this but I am not sure about the shirt. It would be a lot easier to judge your outfits if you were to stand up :)

    Love the interplay between colors, patterns and textures on this outfit.

    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere on the forum, but may I ask what fabric the sports coat is made from?

    Independent of the question of whether to windsor or knot (see what I did there?), this is a horribly executed example of the breed. This is akin to asking us to judge the desirability of all women based on a picture of Snooki.

    Not really keen on the mix of red and burgundy/wine, but otherwise looking good, Orgetorix.

    Funnily enough, this is exactly the same problem that I had with RDiaz's latest fit. I don't mind these red ties. Some people get very exercised about red ties, but I think it's only really skirting on dangerous ground when they are worn with a very blue blazer, or if we are talking plain red satiny ties. It's all a bit too 'primary colours' - in both the aesthetic and political sense of the phrase. However, this kind of predominantly mid-red tie with a predominantly burgundy PS looks a bit wrong.

    Yes, I admit today's PS doesn't work well. In fact most of the time my PS doesn't work well, which is an effect of my collection consisting of only five squares, which I thought would be more versatile. I have to make huge efforts for them to look coherent, and I think I should go back to good ol' white linen or no square. Today I wanted to have mostly blue in my pocket, to contrast with the tie, and this is the PS with the most blue I have. But the rusty oranges messed it up [​IMG]

    Man, I have no idea what the geometries pic is about, but I welcome the contribution. Please explain.

    various parallel and intersecting lines created by the silhouette. i like to play with shapes and volumes in my fits...really doesn't belong in MC but it's a suit so just wanted to share :)

    (yes one of the blue ones is not parallel to the others :p )

    ... but those lines have almost nothing to do with the clothes and everything to do with how you are standing.

    that's ok...well the clothes sit in a certain way, whether standing or not. the vertical ones are there because i am standing, yes. but the jacket cuts away because i buttoned the top and not middle or bottom, and so along with the bag over my shoulders look to be at 60 degrees whether seated or standing or whatever. the horizontal ones are there because of exaggerated shoulders (they really stick out past my shoulders, large pads) and cuffed hems being parallel to ground. the top of the cap can alternate between the 60deg or parallel to ground, modular i guess :)
