    The infamous plaid trousers that usually receives litte love here on SF. I kind of understand why, rather hard to pair with just about anything except a solid SC. Nevertheless, it's Friday so why not? :D

    A second hand Hugo Boss jacket from early 2000. The knitted tie from the 1960´s cost 66 cent. I must admit that the brown corduroy trousers was new last winther (Oscar Jacobsson). It´s hard to find corduroy in good condition in second hand shops.

    I like this, but would prefer a tie with earthtones. Though, if memory serves, brown ties are anathema to you.

    Thank you for your insight, and yes, your memory is correct, though I believe "anathema" is too strong a term for my lack of use of brown ties - rather more "whatever for?". However, saying that, I did recently buy a brown tie, and will attempt to integrate it into a fit sometime in the near future - I am not averse to experimentation :satisfied:.

    Señor Crust, I disagree with the wooly man. A brown tie would have done nothing to improve the combination. I will refrain from judging the tie you did choose because I am incapable of seeing the good in a yellow tie.

    Tie green is a little bright and I think there's a bit too much tartan overall in the fit. I can see what you're going for though.

    I like that tie. Just ugly enough to be the kind of thing I dig.





    Glad it's Friday; it's been far too busy a week...

    PS. inlandisland - to answer your query, the critters on yesterday's tie were flying ducks. :)

    Trousers could stand some tapering again, but I have large thighs and hips so I'm still not sure it'd be the most flattering option [​IMG]

    Can you add depth of field in photochop?

    Yes, it's a laborious process though [​IMG]

    You might be served by a slightly shorter jacket... Not much shorter though.

    I should point out that you need to mask the area you want to stay in focus to get a really good version though.

    "+1 on the tie, details please I love it. P.S. re. thighs/hips - in English we just say big butt. ,)"


    The tie is a pre-SF 7 cm (I know, I know) wool+silk mix I got for cheap at this department store. My wardrobe is not very expensive [​IMG]
    And funnily enough, I don't have much of a butt... what I have on my hips are remains of weight loss that don't want to go away [​IMG]

    Quote: I think the camera angle is making my legs appear somewhat shorter than they are. I actually find this jacket a bit short, but you might be right, a shorter jacket could make legs appear longer... thanks for the tip!
