    I have another suit almost that same color. One of my favorites.

    You may be right about the cut and color. I do like khaki, though.

    Isn't it? And the Sartoria Partenopea / Borrelli combination certainly ups the standards around here again.

    Tie is certainly not as bright red as it appears in the pics...

    Quote: Yeah, I think I agree. I would have gone with a white linen with colour piping (like yours) on this one, but the problem is I don't have any! My PS collection desperately needs additions. I've ordered a new one from Vanda but can't afford anything else yet [​IMG]

    The past 24 hours of this thread are the most entertaining it's been for months.

    Ah! But the shirt is light blue! Bad picture, I reckon. I put up a couple of different pictures where, maybe, the color is a bit better. Terrible light, today. Gray skies.

    I really like this but I am not sure about the shirt. It would be a lot easier to judge your outfits if you were to stand up :)

    Love the interplay between colors, patterns and textures on this outfit.

    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere on the forum, but may I ask what fabric the sports coat is made from?

    Independent of the question of whether to windsor or knot (see what I did there?), this is a horribly executed example of the breed. This is akin to asking us to judge the desirability of all women based on a picture of Snooki.

    Not really keen on the mix of red and burgundy/wine, but otherwise looking good, Orgetorix.

    Funnily enough, this is exactly the same problem that I had with RDiaz's latest fit. I don't mind these red ties. Some people get very exercised about red ties, but I think it's only really skirting on dangerous ground when they are worn with a very blue blazer, or if we are talking plain red satiny ties. It's all a bit too 'primary colours' - in both the aesthetic and political sense of the phrase. However, this kind of predominantly mid-red tie with a predominantly burgundy PS looks a bit wrong.
