    I don't get that.... Maybe it is just me. I never get to a point where I feel it is too hot to wear a jacket whenever I'm in some place as hot as Nigeria or South Africa. On top of that I am usually the last to complain about the heat even though I have the most layers

    Today's fit was built around the vintage tie, and was inspired by Rob/NYI's inimitable style. Let me acknowledge in advance that the pink shirt clearly doesn't fit with where this ended up, but by then it was too late. [​IMG]

    Hi guys

    First post here though I've been lurking for some time. Still reworking my dressing room after losing 10 kilograms and learning that my stuff was terrible anyways. Not confident enough to post fit pics yet and please forgive the messy floor on the second pic.

    The herringbone jacket is too close in scale to the shirt pattern.

    this. however, each individual piece is nice...just needs to be paired different. I hate to be that guy and go for the cliche "a light blue shirt wouldve been a better choice" but i guess its cliche because its almost always correct.

    Welcome!

    Whatever it is y'all are smoking, I recommend a bit less of it.

    Yes, they are odd-pants in charcoal.

    I agree they should be lighter colored to give better contrast.

    Here is todays fit (same pants, also too dark...):

    as you may have noticed, posting a fit is not a requirement for talking in this thread. :)


    thanks for the clarification. fit looks great in todays fit, dark pants aside.

    Quote: It seems counterintuitive, but as someone who wears either a waistcoat or 3 piece most of the time, I also wear a hidden (or barely visible) tie clip. There are two reasons: a proper fitting waistcoat should be form fitting, but not so much so that your tie can’t move around and become crooked (and, unbeknownst to you, stay that way!); the second is that some of us (as seen in the original post) like to puff the tie up just a bit and the clip facilitates that well.

    I like this, despite the fact that your tie is red. :hide:

    Today is the Feast Day of Saint Joseph. The red color is traditional as green is for Saint Patrick. Sugar is liturgically correct.

    I was being a bit snarky, as that is a quote from one of his responses to a fit of mine. In all honesty, I don't get the aversion to red ties. I'm not referring to the insanely bright reds, but even the more moderate shades don't get any love here.
