    Like a number of your shirts, this would be much improved if the collar was slightly more spread and had a little tie space.

    Being unable to marshall either the hotties of Cravate Noire, or the security forces of Phat Guido (I think that he threatened them with a severe critique of their fits in order to get them into formation), I am stuck presenting only myself this morning.

    Suit is BB MTM
    Shirt is Thomas Pink
    Tie is BB
    Cufflinks are Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
    PS is Ashear - bought much earlier in the last millenium
    Shoes are To Boot Adam Derrick

    While I agree with this particular shirt, I have replaced literally every single one of my shirts with the exception of this one to a spread. The only reason I have not replaced this is I can't find a comparable fabric to replace it with. Thanks though.

    Spoo, are you serious with that dark corduroy blazer? Don't you live in NYC? I hope your office is air conditioned.

    Like the combo, M- reminds me that I think a very slightly wider opening on your trousers might better balance shoe size, be a little more harmonious.

    I'm serious. It's a very light corduroy, it's 57 degrees right now, and my office is freezing.

    Yeah my office is like an ice box right now. My building is either 90 degrees or 50 degrees.

    And now for something a little different. I spent my late afternoon today with illustrator and fellow blog-columnist Danielle Meder

    Simply splendid.

    Clothes are all spot-on for your tastes; not much to critique except I'm a little surprised you like the wide spacing of the dots on the tie. Hair and glasses are both way too 70s for me, but hey, they're certainly distinctive so if you like them, great.

    Pretty nice shape to that jacket, sort of like yfyf's Liverano but with straighter lines instead of curves.

    Thanks, but the shape/fit is pretty much distorted by the pose, so I'm suprised you can tell all that much about it from that wacky angle! It doesn't fit nearly as well as yfyf's stuff and certainly lacked a lot of the smooth contouring through chest/torso that bespoke items have; it's only mid-market & lightly altered RTW.

    Paul Stuart sportcoat
    Kent Wang blue gingham shirt
    Kent Wang navy pindot tie
    Kent Wang white cotton pocket square
    Thick as Thieves trousers
    Martegani double monks


    This is a very good concept for a look that would be improved by a less blocky-appearing jacket.

    Liking this tie quite a bit; one from your new source or an older one?






    Feeling downright dowdy after yesterday's fit...

    Naw...the non-symmetrical tie knot works with a more casual outfit. Sorry, but I refuse to rebuke your fashion today, no matter how much you tempt and bait me. I just like the fit...deal with it.

    This suit is a pale blue Oxford cloth, not white. I have always thought this one was too long as well, but there is nothing I can do because of the patch pockets. Looking at the pics, I can live with the length.

    Have a good one,

    Mike

    Are the stereotypes about Southern lawyers true!?!?!?


    Boy MB...with the flooding in your neck of the woods, I am guessing you will be spending a lot of time in a suit during this hot summer!
