    NOBD has stolen my camera remote, so I must resort to this until the new one comes in.

    (Note to self: never post just before NYI!)


    Ping - yours is nicer! I love that suit; no shame in giving it a lot of use.
    Nice look, Claggy - I really like the shoulders on that jacket.


    Edit: Stitch! Nice tie. Clashes with your socks but what the hell, eh?

    Nice. Love the tie. Not a huge fan of the PS, but on this whole, this is nice.
    Good for you, you should wear your new suit! I am always so jealous of your sweet thrifting finds :(

    Thank you, but I have a light grey hat (two, actually - one with a wider brim than the other) - see my posting yesterday in this thread (not that it takes much to suggest that I need to buy more clothes :satisfied: ).

    Like a face-off, sing-off, or even a dance-off, but with even more follicles and/or hairspray.

    BTW, for me, it worked if you close the initial linked photo and go back to the page with 2 images, and then go back in and vote (this behaviour might be browser/settings-dependent)
    Thanks. It's from the Sherry Tweed II book, so it's entirely possible you're looking at the same fabric! I really like it took, but be warned, it's a shade of grey that requires you to have significantly contrasting grey trousers (dark charcoal, or very pale) or really dark earth colours (dark green in the pic, for example). Denim works surprisingly well too. Cream/beige is nice too. Middling shades of grey flannel or donegal aren't enough of a contrast though.

    Not too blue, but the tie isn't a good choice for the shirt IMO. A more sparsely patterned navy tie would have worked just fine.

    I have a similarly-coloured waistcoat and don't think I've ever paired it with sky blues (apart from shirt); I think I will steal this idea!
    Great tie for this look. I suspect many here won't be fond of it, but I really like it.

    Correct choice. :)

    Nice elements, but I feel the tie is a little too close in colour to the shirt's check. Something more contrasting might have worked better.

    I like this. A bit sombre for me, but it all works well together. If the stripes are pale blue, the tie is spookily close to that of my old college (not the same, but close enough for me to double-take).

    It looks excellent. I'm not a massive fan of the tie (just a bit too stripey for me), but the rest of the outfit is great. Having said that, I trust you're being careful walking the dresscode tightrope, unless you have a backup/exit plan if the situation escalates. No point creating enemies for little reason otherwise.

    Will this winter never end...

    ... had the trousers of this suit tapered down a little more below the knee. A very small change, but I think it's made for a more balanced fit.

    That is one good-looking suit! Not so sure about shirt and tie though - I think contrast collars are really hard to pull off.

    Thanks. I don't think there's much risk. I've been wearing stuff nobody else wears (bow ties, pocket squares, etc.) for a while, so my coworkers are used to it. And I'm not the only one here still wearing a suit on occasion, so I think it's fine.
