    Love the fabric - really strong without being gaudy. Re. shoes, can't fault the classics! I have a monk on the same last; lovely shoes I think.


    Quote: Jean-Louis Scherrer; a gift. It's needed re-sewing; not the best-made. But I do love the colour and pattern.

    Thank you. Tab collars are an occasional indulgence of mine.


    It is the SF prescribed double four-in-hand, which, due to the construction of Charvet ties, makes a long, narrow knot which I like with a tab-collared shirt.

    Ho-hum fit today. I tried a half-smile but it makes me look a little sinister...

    Deets: jacket is vintage late 50s or early 60s from Westchester, the knitted bi-colour grey wool tie is of a similar age (from Germany), basic J-Crew lavender gingham shirt and blue wool vest, plus early 60s vintage navy wool trousers (really sharp in real life) and C&J dark brown monks.
    I messed around with the saturation and contrast on the robo-pose (spoilered below) so that the trousers didn't disappear entirely into the black filing cabinet behind me, and now you can tell they are blue, but it's also made everything else look much lighter than it really is, shoes in particular. Colours and textures are much more accurate in the first pic.

    Quote: I think it's partly just the angle and the way the fabric has shifted as I rushed backwards to get the shot taken. They don't seem that HUGE in real life. However, I am now feeling paranoid about my enormous sleeves! [​IMG] I will see what someone says who can see them for real...

    Fall has arrived, time to bring out my first, but definitely not last, tweed.

    The pants are navy, but the distortion makes them look a bit purplish.

    You should see me when I try a proper smile for the camera. It's very disturbing...
