    I do think the ps would look better if it wasn't so close in shade with the tie, though.

    In theory, I would agree but I think it looks good here. There's several shades of difference and it seems to work - at least in picture

    You look ten years younger in this suit! (So, now, you are only 29?) Henceforth, we may have to call you "Slim". Nicely done. Am intrigued by the classy, classic cuff links.

    You know, very well, that green is like Kryptonite to me. :happy:

    Thanks, everyone, for the many kind comments over the past few days.

    Suit details? Nice fit!
    Is the tie purple or red? I think a checkerboard pattern is very daring. Safe with purple, I'd reckon.

    With sensors (as with many other things in life), size does matter...

    I agree - I think the slimmer pant legs help.

    Your compliments are equally charming and humorous (or else I owe you a free visit to the optometrist - in exchange for becoming my publicist). As for the cufflinks, they were on clearance on the Met's website - a "crime of opportunity'.



    Thanks, Stitch.



    Only too true - Lily von Schtup was saying that only the other day . . .



    Duly noted.

    Ah, Señor Crust. Blazing Saddles is one of my favorite movies! I watch it at least once per year.

    Slim pants for the win. You look awesome, I much prefer over your fuller cuts.

    It's nice to see someone not obsessed with trying to match everything exactly. Cotton(?) jacket, flannel pants, suede bag, cordovan(?) shoes... nothing "matches" but they do compliment each other well IMO. Personally I think both of your outfits work pretty well.

    I was going to say how much I love this but after thinking about it just a bit, I think I'm just head over heels with the jacket. Still, the fact that you're able to assemble anything around it that works (and what you've done, works well) is quite a feat.

    I'm impressed - I wouldn't have known what the F to do with the jacket but you pulled it off with aplomb. Kudos!

    ps - great trousers.
