    Definitely hard to tell what colors we are dealing with there, stitch. Are those trousers as dark as they look on screen?

    As always, please excuse the sleeve wrinkles. These are taken when I get home from work. I'm not collected enough in the mornings to do them then.

    not even close. they almost look black in the full pic. compounding the issue is that the SC looks darker than it is as well, in that pic.

    the close up of the pants/socks/shoes is the closest, still though the pants are a touch lighter than that pic.

    That answers my concern about the trousers being too dark for that jacket. Not a fan of the shoes in general, but you roll with it. [​IMG]

    Amigo Díaz, ¿cómo se llaman ese tipo de corbatas? Es que hay unas que tienen como círculos, otras otro diseño pero como en ese mismo patrón, no he encontrado una y la necesito! [​IMG]

    I like this jacket!

    Espú... this is brown? [​IMG] I like it.

    Here´s what I wore today. I see now that it I probably should have thrown a pattern into the mix ( even though the shirt is a fine stripe)..

    It's an ancient madder tie. No idea how that translates to spanish, I'm afraid [​IMG]

    Got mine from Drake's, there are some on sale right now, though the selection is very limited.

    This tie is so good. Come to think of it, I've liked almost every one of your ties...to the point of being covetous.

    Thanks, mang. I've had the tie for several years - snatched it at an end-of-season clearance. It's a bit wide for current tastes in ties, but hidden behind a waistcoat, it does the job admirably with today's shirt and suit.

    I'll give your particulars to the local police, should my tie racks be missing anything . .:satisfied: .

    I like this combination a lot, but any advice on how to improve anything is much appreciated. Not sure if I'll make a habit of leaving the collar unbuttoned, but it just seemed to have no roll with this tie.

    YRR92, Shoes seem to match too closely to the jacket for my taste. Not a fan of unbuttoning the button collar either.

    Thanks for the feedback. The collar button was an impulse, and I wouldn't do it if I were more happy with the roll on the shirt. It's certainly a bit affected. Shoes are burgundy, coat is brown. They're noticeably different hues in real life, but they're both about the same saturation.

    1. Wear a non-matching jacket - and tie, but be prepared to take it off and hide it discreetly if your host isn't wearing one.

    2. If you're too lazy to put this in the "ask a question" thread, or use English grammar, maybe try McDonald's.

    3. Just kidding. Good luck. :)
