    Light (or bright) tie paired dark jacket/suit is very difficult to pull off. I'm not sure any of these really work in that regard for me. It's a look I like in theory, especially as it's nearly Spring (despite the lack of any springlike weather in my neck of the woods) but it's damn difficult to do well. When it brightens up more here, I'll try a few such looks to, but I do find them hard to coordinate. Using something else that's consistent in lightness with the tie (as the looks above do) helps, but I don't think is the whole story to making it work, but will have to ponder more to figure out what else exactly it is I think is needed.

    What colour are the trousers? Dark brown? They look nice, but it would be good to see them in normal sunlight to see whether they really contrast well with the jacket. Having bottom half in dark shade vs a brightly lit top half makes it tricky to figure out whether the contrast between the two halves is enough or not. Anyway, I'm sure we'll see them again in the future, to be able to tell. They look like they fit you very well.

    if you look directly at where the sun shines on my crotch :uhoh: you can see the color of the pants, and the contrast pretty well. they are chocolate brown.

    you will certainly see them featured here again. and thanks, i agree, i think the fit is superb. :cheers:

    gladhands: That bodacious strut picture would be so much better if you weren't in your backyard...

    table21: You just need more light. Try outside or in a more brightly lit room.

    SB, that looks good. The more open quarters look good on you.

    If I may ask SB, who is the maker of the suit? You look great in it! Can we get some closer shots?

    I think this is great outfit...right until I see the shoes. I have posted this before and I didn't really see any feedback. Am I the only one that thinks brown shoes don't go with navy/dark grey suits?
