    Just realized that I wore the hell out of this suit this summer.

    Inoffensive grey/burgundy all the way down...must be having an off day.

    *Meh. Terrible picture quality: the tie is lavender, the shirt is a fine dark navy stripe.

    I kinda liked it until I saw the closeups.

    matching the shirt to the pinstripe is too obvious. And the dubmonks would be nice if they had broguing rather than the large stitching by the cap.

    You mean matching the socks? Maybe.

    I rather like the monks, though. I've been looking for a plain toe double, but this embellished cap is quite nice. With a plain grey pinstripe being a bit conservative, adding the monks, the pink shirt, lovely PS and a lively tie, makes the whole ensemble quite cheerful I think. My only negative on this is that I'm not too keen on a polka dot tie - something inherently comical about them somehow. Pin-dot is more me, but I think this package makes Mr Crust look rather jolly, without diluting the professional image. Not bad at all.

    One of the rare days I am wearing a grey suit, to match the sky here...

    Daks vintage suit, Dunhill blue shirt with contrast cuff and collar, Liberty paisley tie, vintage burgundy wool waistcoat, dark blue lace PS, 'amusing' Dr Who Cyberman cufflinks (they were a gift and from a distance just look like ordinary blue enamel links) + (not seen) vintage black Florsheim Imperial wingtips.

    ...and just for the sake of bragging, my haircuts are always DIY.
    On the advice of Patrick I have started using Lush hair products, and I cocur that they are great value/performance.

    Quote: Keep in mind I am fat! Tapering the trousers puts emphasis on wide thighs and hips, which is something I don't want. Plus, there's not much more room there for tapering, and the crotch looks lower than it really is due to poor lighting (it's about at the same level as the jacket hem IRL), making legs appear shorter. These are a bit narrower than my previous posts though [​IMG]
