Not sure if cargo pants should go with a double breasted sport coat and tie...
@Claghorn: I actually like that tie, but I seem to like louder ties than most here. I get what you're talking about, but blue and brown can work together. I think the pairing you've done (blue shirt) works fine and looks good. It matches with the real color of the tie but picks up it's blue hue. In general I'm a sucker for small patterned fabric that looks solid from afar.
Love the coat. Details pls?
Just a quick picture before I went out the door.
Trust me - they don't.
I usually view SF on my phone. Saw your pic while scrolling and thought "wow that's a nice loo ... Never mind!"
Well, this thread is full of all kinds of horrible lately.
Crying out for light grey wool trousers!
Thanks! The shoes trees came with these:
whats really good, Moo?
What's up Ed?
Yes indeed - Glorious 12th.
Moo, those shoes are pure sechs.
I think I have seen them at an other thread but forgot who made them, could you help me?
Gracias for all the tie love guys. It really is a tie that I've been on the fence about for a while. It's hard as hell to pair with...and that's really my big concern (one of the reasons why I post mostly tie/shirt/jacket or cardigan shots). I know a lot of people will say shoes make the outfit, but I'm really in love with ties.
That blue shirt is really the only thing that works with that tie. Given the positive response it's gotten (and the fact that I really love how it knots, hangs, and feels), I will probably go out and try and find another fabric that it goes with. I've already failed miserably in the October No Purchase Club, so I figure if I get everything out of the way now, I have a decent chance at November.
And Kappelan...I am a big fan of any deviations from the orthodox look which still manage to fall within the bounds of aesthetically acceptable. So keep pushing those boundaries (without approaching SW&D territory of course...that place is scary).
