    SB - shirt collar looks pretty loose there...? Other than that...[​IMG]...particularly the square.

    :) It is a bit loose, but I think it's mostly that I have my head turned.

    Thank you Sir. I was beginning to think the pics weren't actually there! I tried on several blue ties and for some reason thought this one was the best option.

    Any idea who makes Barney's store brand suits?

    Love the jacket. The red/pink POW is highly underrated. Excellent pocket square choice.

    It varies by line, I think. Their high end recently has been Isaia (at least according to the salesman I spoke to). Others may know more.

    SB, I really like yesterday's square.
    Coxaca, I like the 3 piece, and I know gingham is a country pattern, but it's too bold with the suit. Try that shirt with a muted herringbone or donegal tweed & see how it works. Or if the suit stays, a smaller pattern might be better with it, like a tattersall.
    Ebonyman, your suit fabrics are nice. You would take your outfits up quite a bit if you invested in better ties. Look for classic stripes (since you seem to like stripes) and avoid multiple/varied size/color stripes or fancy Spitalsfield wovens. Start with basic repps and move on from there.
    Crusty, it has not been unnoticed that you have been wearing muted ties as of late. I love that. It helps assuage my fiery contempt for those boots.

    You are fast-becoming one of the guys that really elevates this forum. Can't wait to see the sartorial pyrotechnics you pull off in Fall and Winter too. :slayer:

    Awwww shucks! Thanks for that. I don't know about pyrotechnics but Fall/Winter does allow for interesting combinations with the opportunity for layering.

    UC, thanks for the input. I am partial to striped ties but I also have an abundance of neat prints. I guess I need to show more variety in the fits I post to this thread.

    There's always next week!

    Have a good weekend Gents and thanks for the feed back.

    ps speaking of feedback, would you suggest I stick to blue ties when wearing olive or ????

    Sorry, Urban, but the boots were for the Friday Challenge - blame Tirailleur for my excesses :satisfied:. Glad at least that the upper half of me was found to be pleasing . . .

    A beer gut? How plebeian. I myself have a Louis Treize gut.
