    Probably my favorite shirts, right next to Borrelli. Yes, all my shirts are RTW.

    Do you only wear Borrelli shirts made before the "change of business" or do you think the quality has been consistent since then?

    Mostly, because I find the new ones not as well made. But Ive purchased within the past few months from Shop The Finest, and while I don't know if they are new or old, they have all the hand work and quality that came along with the old ones. They very well may be deadstock.

    The weather has tempered itself this week, so one can wear a suit without instantly turning into a sweaty mess.

    Suit & braces - Paul Stuart
    Shirt - BB MTM
    Tie - Lewin
    Cufflinks - David Donohue, via Saks Off Fifth, Folsom, CA
    PS - No name brand, bought cheap at Century 21, lower Manhattan
    Shoes - Finsbury

    ~40°C in Germany right now.

    I really like your suit crustmaster!
    Also great fun how the trousers confuse your camera in the first picture of your spoiler :D

    I thought I was alone in thinking this. I agree. I would definitely go for black (or very dark blue etc.) here. The suit is beautiful though.

    i have had the sme experience wth STF. i really wonder if its deadstock, or if borrelli is still making stuff the same way, and the rumors are false. would love to find out for sure.

    40C? Yikes, that's hot. My condolences - were it that hot in NYC, there would be no suit-wearing today for me - linen trousers and polo shirt instead.

    Thanks for the comment, and yes, even the best DSLR cameras have a problem with images of Prince of Wales glen plaids - always end up as a pixilated mess, unless done as a total close-up.

    Love the outfit.
    That Vanda tie is sublime.

    I think you could wear slimmer trousers. :)

    Too many patterns to be in good taste & probably not loud enough for pea-cocking?
    New tie from Vanda, made to order by Gerald & Diana, extra, extra long & just a smidgen wider than their standard model.

    I don't think the rainbow look is requisite for peacocking, Theo. If you were wearing one of your hats today, it certainly qualifies, IMO.
