    Still a little cold for loafers without socks, but I'm not a pussy, unlike UC. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] looks better with no socks [​IMG]

    Had to jeans it up today & snake a plugged up drain. Fun!

    Parker, coat is dope. A recent one from Mina?

    Spring Challenge. Of course, I am probably one of the few guys on here that is actually getting some Spring weather today. [​IMG]

    Domenico Spano Dupioni Suit
    Borrelli shirt
    Roundtree and Yorke tie
    Borrelli suede longwings.

    Have a good one!

    Suit is coo. Could be more contrasty IRL, but from the pics, but shoes are a weeee too close in color to the suit. Plus, the dark thick sole says fall/winter to me. This fit is crying for a brick sole [​IMG]

    [​IMG][/SPOILER]
    Great find on the shoes! Burn that pocket sqaure tho [​IMG] Rose silk satin goes with nothing. Trust me on this one.

    well hello there ...

    I like how the blue contrasts with the suit color. I also think the color of the shoes are a great contrast as well. However, I also think that tassel snuff suede loafers look great with jeans...and that's about it. Sorry mang.

    (Maybe I should have re-done the seersucker??)
    3 roll 1 suits can look great, but odd coats...from what I've seen they only look good in tweed/flannel. This looks like an orphaned suit jacket. Sorry my mod brother, but if you've got the matching pants, it'd look much better.

    Worn in London some times ago, at an interview at the Uni of Arts.

    I like all the parts, but the whole comes across as a touch too busy.

    I don't mind the concept of a velvet tie, but I'm not sure it works with the more summer leaning trousers.
    I'm listening ...
    I think it's the low contrast top half combined with a fairly dark bottom half that jars slightly. If the trousers were a bit lighter or the tie a bit darker the two halves would work together better.

    the hat is a tad too 'Popeye Doyle' for me -the rest looks good.

    SC needs a drycleaning, but I love this PS!

    I'm not quite feeling the tie/PS combination, although it's not terrible. Look as a whole isn't bad.
    Happy Friday girls..

    Bold and fun, with everything working together. Nicely done [​IMG]
    In a hurry today. Haven't had time to look at other fits, unfortunately. Played with my camera outside a little. Here's my entry:

    I think it needs a different tie - it's very close to the SC. If it was a dark navy I think the whole would work better.
    I forgot the tie photo today. But was a dark brown waffle-y thing on a light blue shirt. Boots need a good brushing.

    Nice SC.

    could you get a tiny bit more detailed? I thought the tie and PS went great together. I just dont understand why it "isnt bad", I can take criticism but I'd like to know what to change in the future....

    Very nice, Parker. What are the boots and trousers?

    I like the clean look of this tie with the coat. However, the pocket square clashes with the stripes of the tie. To wear this ps, a solid tie would work better. Or, if keeping the striped tie, a more neutral (solid?) ps would work. I like the socks, but not with this tie. Argyle v stripes

    The pale stripes of the tie and the pale check of the PS fight with each other. The colours are okay.

    The basic leisure look: quilt jacket, corduroy cap, cashmere sweater, gingham country shirt, woollen Fraser tartan tie, thick corduroy trousers, camel hair scarf, veldtschoen boots and a bridle leather shoulder bag.

    Those are some ugly-ass socks, ace. SC is beautiful but looks too snug, and that's coming from a guy who really likes snug SCs.

    Nice SC, TB.
    Thanks, Mike. Gonna give me a pass on the pink shirt this time?

    I think it's the low contrast top half combined with a fairly dark bottom half that jars slightly. If the trousers were a bit lighter or the tie a bit darker the two halves would work together better.
    Thanks for clarifying, MoK. I see exactly what you mean.

    I dont see it, the checks on the PS are much smaller than the tie stripes and its not like my socks are right next to my tie clashing. But thanks for clarifying.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.
