    Victor...You're a fine example of what a true gentleman of top drawer class is all about. There are several on here with those fine qualities, however, there are also those that show their jealousies with their rude comments. It's a real shame that today's society does not have more gentlemen as yourself and some of the others on here. You have great taste in clothing, how to but them together, and wear them well.

    It's an absolute peach. Like the tie too.

    Just then a mix of different, but equally close shades and textures that are not made to combine.
    In addition to this type of shirt collar Officially much of the rest, and its use is very controversial here.
    I just wanted to experiment a bit, and finally make a joke that a jacket that with pants and vest.[​IMG]

    It was their last public release.[​IMG]

    Not a very good choice of fabric when it was. And I just could not find it beneficial to use a combination of any of the jacket or trouser with a vest, in the end a couple of times to dress them together, for jokes.[​IMG]

    I'm tired of thinking with what they wear.[​IMG]


    Now the jacket goes to the country, I will pick mushrooms and go fishing, hunting. It is cozy and comfortable
    Pants will be worn at home with cashmere robe
    A vest will remain in memory of the fabric is not too good[​IMG]

    Victor, you're utterly mental, but a good sport. Easy on those mushrooms, now. :)

    Pinned my collar all wonky and didn't notice until I took these pictures, one of the perils of a home with no mirrors!

    The shirt looks better from a distance, where its colour, pattern and unusually large collar seems to meld more harmoniously with the suit. The collar just seems to dominate in the close-up shots. However, the sock-trouser interface is doing Bridget Riley / op-art kinds of damage to my eyes! I think I would have gone for something plain, however boring that might sound.

    A bit much going on with that shirt for my taste, but it really is a splendid suit. Nice to see that panama being worked as long as possible too - definitely valid for September!

    This makes me nostalgic for my years living in Texas. I'm not a Texan by birth or temperament, so I don't think I could pull this off, but I've always had a soft spot for boots 'n' suits.



    Theo, that is one hell of a shirt collar. Still, stylish!

    I really have no hopes of this being "Eye Catching", just having fun and learning amount mixing patterns and what not. I am a complete newby to this whole thing. But I felt like my purple gingham, with deep purple silk tie looked pretty good for my presentation in class today. I also need to get my suit tailored. I need to make the shoulders work a little better for me and work on my sleeves as well.

    Yes, I realize that it's black tie in the afternoon, and I know that the image quality is less than perfect, but a happy day for me nonetheless.

    Brooks Brothers: peal lapel rig, 3 button vest, & shoes
    E. Zegna shirt
    Kent Wang tie, square, and studs.

    Forgot a pocket square. Actually, I remembered it, but they were in the room where my wife was sleeping, and I didn't want to wake her.

    The jacket could really stand to be taken in, but I'm shrinking out of this suit and not gonna bother with alterations until I see if I lose enough to go down a size.

    Suit: Oxxford
    Shirt: Luciano Barbera
    Tie: Brooks
    Shoes: Nettleton

    Mimo!
    Going into second hand and vintage shops is like digging gold. Sometimes you find nuggets for nothing. I have plenty of old suits (1940 - 1970) that I have bought from 1,20 € - 50 € ( $ 1,50 - $ 60). Often taylor made, handsewn and in top condition. Sometimes I have to adjust it a little at my taylor. Try it. It´s fun.

    You certainly seem to have found some nuggets! Not much of that where I live, I guess my nearest is eBay, but there are many hunters! Great job anyway!

    Andysrus: congratulations; I guess as an American you get a pass for that sort of thing!

    Orgeto: very tidy - perhaps one too many striped elements?
