    Well he certainly knows a thing or two (probably more than I do) but I don't like his style nor taste. Way too big tie knots, white shirt mixed with solid ties in any colour, and clip-on suspenders... not my cup of tea.

    I don't even think the suit fits bad, an American trad suit should fit like this.
    I am more interested about your college/university, do you dress CBD everyday?
    I guess I need to step my game up.

    Chilly this morning and that calls for another three-piece suit.

    I blame the lack of PS on the fact that was woozy after having woken up at 4.30 this morning and then having to suffer through the last two quarters of the debacle on MNF. :brick:

    it's not just that you wore a belt with a vest, no you tucked your vest in...

    Suit looks fine. You will want to wear darker socks though. White (?) or beige socks should not be paired with a blue suit.

    Short shirt sleeves with oversized double cuffs are messing with jacket sleeves. Need to order Tyrwhitt shirts with half an inch extra length and barrel cuffs from now on... [​IMG]

    This jacket has been shortened and taken in at the shoulders. Still a bit tight at the hips, but I'm working on that [​IMG]

    I know the tweed looks a little long/big, but its part of a 52 year old savile row bespoke three-piece and I am struggling to justify messing with it to much.
    buttoned it doesn't seem too big, just a hair long, and I'd rather too long than short.

    Here it is last time I wore it as a three-piece.

    ^ Size looks fine, I like the drape it creates in the chest. Pockets seem already too low to shorten the jacket, but maybe sleeves can be shortened from the top? For such a valuable piece you'd need a really trustworthy tailor, though.

    Where do you get your shirts made? Your collars are great...

    Now, today I've chosen what, for me, is a most unnatural accessory - a brown tie. My associates here sing the praises of brown ties nearly constantly. To me, they smack of straight men afraid of strong color (and I qualify for neither of those two conditions), but, in the spirit of scientific research, I've donned one today. Let's see if it works.

    Suit - BB Fitzgerald
    Tie - JAB
    Shirt - The Shirt Store, NYC
    PS - Robert Talbott
    Cufflinks - Liberty, London
    Shoes - Finsbury, Paris

    As an avid fan of brown ties I applaud your effort of expanding your horizons :slayer:. However, I think a darker brown tone would have worked better in this case, the whole ensemble looks a little washed out. Also, tie and PS are too close in colour for me (but it may be due to my computer monitor, for me the tie looks almost red in the last photo). Still, a great looking suit!

    I'll disagree with Spoo. I like this silhouette, though the shoes should be a bit darker. The pants may benefit from some additional length as well, but the shortness might be an illusion caused by your stance.


    I post an arm's length phone photo because it's that or nothing. I don't have the time or patience to do the timer shot, retake, edit, repeat, anymore.

    Here's my selectively cropped, over-processed photo of the day —

    This picture definitely represents an idea of success to most - me included! Should have gone with braces, though ("suspenders"), and in answer to your previous question, I'd say a waiscoat alone is always wrong, unless you're a waiter, or indeed a tailor - with your jacket hanging nearby. The matching trews definitely take away the waiter look, but even if you're really in the mood for novelty, I'd still have gone with a jacket - maybe a cream DJ/smoking jacket, and complete the "in-your-face" but with a bit of dilution for that tartan. Anyway, 10/10 for bravery - there's always something to be said for being yourself.

    Haha....dictionary definition of "literally" is definitely going to change in the next few years; but I'm in the reactionaries' camp right next to you, sir! That tartan might have looked like mass murder, but I doubt that any blood was shed!

    Mr Pingson, you are a shining light. My attachment to a three-piece is obvious, but this is splendid. All I'd say is, pocket square aside (a dandification anyway; matter of mood), perhaps you are selling this fine suit short with the suede shoes? It might be a heavier, country-style fabric, but still, I think your excellent Tricker's half brogues might have been a more fitting companion. I'm nit-picking though - great look.

    This must be the "tell-it-like-it-is" for which the public has been agitating - harsh but not wrong!
