The new Cappelii looks the chit!
+1 Great look
Good look, especially shirt collar, what's the jacket fabric?
Btw rubi doesn't carry that tie anymore so consider yourself lucky!
No it doesn't, Foo's knot is perfect and suits him, you just made it worse.
That rubicon has been crossed.
I'd properly respond to this post, but my seeing eye dog has the afternoon off.
"Doesn't" what? I just said that I liked it better.
How much worse did I make it? If the altered image had been the image that he initially posted, would you have commented that the tie knot was too large?
Photo itself is strong in compositional elements suited to the purpose, and I guess that’s why you chose it? - shallow depth of field and complementary colors blurred in the background draw the eye to you; perfect for a shot that’s all about the subject's clothes. Look-wise, the subtle mix of patterns and colors and the impromptu way you’ve thrown things together- messy collar, throttle-cinched knot (at the table?)and shy PS - is full-sprezz , yet the mix might have pleased the DOW- russet gold, leafy greens, earthy browns and a rosy overcheck on the tweed would IMO bee contrived and matchy but for the strong blue verticals of the shirt contrasting, balancing, anchoring the whole ensemble - makes me want to give it a go again, having abandoned busy and difficult 3 and 4 patterns in my own fit regimen for solids- which are usually more elegant, more bang for buck and harder to f--* up even if sometimes boring. Good 4 pattern combinations are scarce as rocking horse shit on SF, but this is exquisiteness IMHO. Selection-wise it’s m ore the spread collar than the tie I’d quibble with. Odds on that i-gents will look back in a decade and snigger at spreads the way we do at power shoulders, contrast collars and braces of the eighties or the ultra-fitted waists, flares and crazy lapels of the seventies (I hope so). But the spread thing is personal andneither here or there- this is still a fit that's harmonious, subtle, finely balanced, and to me stands out in this thread and any. Thx for making the effort
Hey. Yeah i didnt quite like the shirt as well. I thought white would be better tho. That PS was about to fall off! I need to push it in more. Its just a OTR TM Lewin shirt. Got it for pretty cheap.
Am I alone in wanting to hear the story about how foo was being mistreated in the service industry? again?
I for one love the outfit, I would have opted for a Double Foo In Hand though.
Please post more often.

Absolutely. Frankly, the fact that so many SFers fawn over Foo just because of who he is is sickening.
Much better. Good job.
Nice jacket! It's the fabric from H Lesser x Barbera?
God forbid that one makes a positive comment about something that happend to be posted by one of the so called "top" members.
Good thing we have self-appointed forum cops like yourself and AntHoney that will step in and clarify that it absolutely must be due to the posters name that the comment is positive and not because one happen to like the clothing itself. All opinions are based on the name of the wearer not the actual clothes
