    Paisley ties always remind me of Gary Larson's illustrations of protozoa:

    Er....yeah...I picked out the ones that struck me especially, i.e. the highlights, but basically every post was good the last couple of days i.e. no "lowlights" at all. No rage necessary, brosephson!

    On which point: T, you got your wardrobe back I see! Fierce. :)

    LOL - I don't usually go all out with this suit, but I had a bit of a bet to fulfill today. I'll tone it down for you next time, Eliod. [​IMG]

    Green shirts are a pain; I should know, I've owned several over the years as I'm a glutton for punishment sometimes. Having said that, beige trousers are a good choice for them. I think I'd like that shirt more if the stripes were much wider, or if it was a gingham.

    Re: the trousers Leaving length aside, I'm not a huge fan of cuffing summer trousers; somehow I don't like how linens, cottons, etc look when turned up. I think turn ups look nicest on "fluffy" fabrics like flannel. I appreciate that this pretty idiosyncratic, but there it is. I also think a (slightly) higher rise might flatter you more, but again, that's a personal preference and IIRC you've mentioned before that you don't like higher rises.

    Very entertaining. It brings something of a neon sci-fi future into a tailored look, like how a background character in Blade Runner would dress in today's clothes, if you know what I mean. As long the aim was to generate a smile, a gentle shake of the head, a conversational ice-breaker, or merely to distract someone from focusing too much on other things, you succeeded. I like that kind of effect.

    Kind of, but mine have huge bone spurs from ski boots and hockey skates. I like the young and natural look of those shoes.

    Really? You think that looks good? I have to say I am surprised that this looks received any likes at all, guys, rather than some serious advice about how to avoid such a hideous mixture of clashing colours. In my view, the suit might work with a completely different shirt, something much lighter in hue, and an entirely different tie and square. But I am not even sure about that - although I'd have to see it IRL to know.

    (PS: just read it was for a bet, I guess that makes it different...)

    They're darker, that was just the photo/lighting. Sort of a mid-green.

    Nice seersucker DB! Have one presently in the works. Though I do think a contrasting shirt would have been for the better. RTW? or was it bespoken for?

    Like the combi and fit In Stitches. How much break do you usually get on your trousers?

    Agreed but a minor nit pick - CD you should turn your PS so that he raw edges face outwards. I dunno why but I think they look better that way.

    thanks for the feedback HF. im not sure what i prefer more when it comes to cuffs and chinos, so i cuffed some and not others.


    thanks, meng. i usually aim for a teensy weensy bit of break on my wool dress trousers, and prefer erring on the side of no break than more break. with my casual pants, i like a little more break.

    i dont know if you recall the great rise debate of not so long ago, where i made a huge ass of myself, but i go by my outseam since i wear all my pants at the same point across my waist. ideally 37.75 inches, and 38 inches for most of my chinos. tailor doesnt always get it spot on tho. : (

    Clearly. I am just surprised that some people actually think it looks good.
