    I prefer these to your orange, wooly socks.

    Thanks all of you guys for your feedback.

    This is nothing special about this suit. It is some Italian noname which I've bought in Europe :)

    Two people with terrible taste... I originally thought I was channeling my inner Sid Mashburn but the whole time it was the O/O.


    Pretty boss but my tailor includes an ass flap so I can shit without taking off my trousers.

    Victor I know having opinions is frowned on around here but I agree with the shirt comment, the collar is poor.

    I'm cool with the pinstripe alignment.
    I think the socks need more ankle suppression.

    Thanks for the comments, guys!

    In the kit - I agree with you on the correct shirt and tie.

    As for the color combination - sure to get a good idea, and very few people here will find a more balanced version of the tie and accessories by color and pattern it with this shirt, trousers and jacket.

    Again - the classic strict images - it is relatively easy and not so difficult.

    But such a creative, as in the last photo - is more complicated.
    This is closer to the design and style.

    In the summer I'll be most of the time just to experiment in this way.

    Strict classic - it's good! But this is only one side is the coin.
    A creative casual - the other part of the coin.

    Even if it is a big risk.
    But it's interesting and driving.
    In addition, it is very difficult to make a creative and banal casual.

    But I like the complexity.

    I am sure that it is difficult to assemble complex and not The Standard bow, what would it be harmonious.
    And few do it well.
    I like it more or less successful, I hope.


    Nevertheless, thanks for the tips!
    You notice a very useful part. I am glad to learn from you!

    The main thing - I think of summer experimenting, not as to the classics (I'll come back to it in the fall), but as entertainment.

    As an attempt to reconcile the irreconcilable.
    As an attempt mixing the styles and levels of formality.
    As an attempt to design an experiment based on the combination of non-standard parts, but on the basis of the classical style.

    Thank you, guys!

    I'd like to hear more about this ^, ed. It seems to me that the length of a man's shoes ought to have very little to do with "how he dresses." Rather, it ought to be based solely (pardon pun) on his height and foot size.

    A tall man with smallish feet, for instance, balances his appearance by wearing shoes with a elongated toe boxes. He does not wear different length shoes with different outfits because his height and foot length do not change with each ensemble.

    Can you give me an example of an outfit that calls for stubby shoes as opposed to one that calls for elongated shoes?

    Love the buttons on the coat victor. Very nice. Also, have you lost weight? looking much leaner.
