    I love your posts CP. I have no reason to dress as formally in my line of work and workplace, but I always wish I did after looking at your fits.

    Sunshine with showers and a cooler day generally called for flannel at midsummer... what a summer...

    Note the regrettable last minute choice to experiment with brown chelseas instead of my usual choice of black shoes with this suit. A mistake I won't repeat again. Needs to be black IMO.

    I believe this is called nailhead, though a close-up would help.

    Small article on nailhead fabric:

    To me, I love this look, although I would have the pants hemmed about an inch or so

    At first, I thought you were being sarcastic--all that about vision and my profession--but this is a very interesting point; one I would like, to discuss further with you (would it be thread-able?). I understand you feel, that the varying colours should sit in terms of mass area (IE: The dominant colour being the SC), and I, wholeheartedly, agree with you. But, then, maybe ianGP only has this set of colours in this order, and these colours work within themselves, I believe--order being not of dominant importance. :)

    Hay, if we find this interesting, maybe I should bring up my music-colour theory! :D :p

    I have one and also a very thinly lined tie, and the OCD in me gets a bit tweaked by the phenomenon, but I love the feel and the way they knot. Not an everyday thing for me, but I like them sometimes.

    No, it is not a nailhead. gdl203 already answered this question earlier in the thread.

    Agreed. And, there's no need to apologise, but thank you! :)


    I guess it would be too nerdy/specific for most.
