    Perfectly executed ivy. What are the shoes? I am looking for good brogues with a more serious tread.

    Woah woah woah
    I wasn't being sarcastic at all. I was actually serious. Yeah I was using hyperbole but it was just in fun. I like his fit especially the first one he posted previously.

    Am I really being accused of being a Classic Menswear zealot?

    Where is Caustic Man to list my tirades on CM?
    oh the irony.

    nothing wrong with a little banana in your life son, lol..but its pretty dope..Im surprised though because a lot of the lapels on their jackets are so skinny.. I feel like sometimes you cannot tell the difference between banana republic suits and J-Crew suits on the outside..

    Well I bought it before they caught on the skinny lapel train late. I don't care that it is from Banana Republic. I was just surprised to find something that not only fit but I fancied.

    Sorry I am watching Reggie Bush's td as I type this. Cotdang.

    It all makes sense! Entertaining you certainly are.

    Mickael, there's always room for a bit of dandiness around here, and I agree with you that context is very important. A very few, like Monsieur le Tirailleur, manage to somehow be SF icons while breaking all the SF rules at the same time. For us as mere mortals, it is usually necessary to accept that SF rules can be broken, but nobody has to like it. How much we care whether SF likes it is a personal choice.

    Me, I like my brightly coloured socks sometimes, contrasting shoelaces here and there, and even wear trousers with a little break (*audible gasp*). These things do not gain much love. Yet, as you said, I am complimented daily in the real world for being a sharp dresser (albeit with little competition where I live!). Conversely, I despise sockless loafers, and "crossover" combinations such as jeans or cargo pants with a jacket and tie. I hate some things that I see on SF, and SF hates some things they see on me. One thing I have to admit, though, is that although I have my own style, I've been inspired by a lot of things I've seen on here - and often that which is closest to traditional ideals of classic menswear.

    Take what you like and agree to differ on what you don't. Just never take it personally. We all cool here. In any language.

    P.S. Pleased to meet you.


    What's most ironic here, bruvva, is that this is possibly the most CM post I've ever seen from you. And awesome it is. Yet not strangely incongruous on you - I can't help thinking you need a sequinned boater or a feather boa or something.

    Change the shirt to something with a better collar (more spread) and this fit will look really good. The skinny suit is designed for people with your frame.

    I think you can learn a lot about fit and coordination here but seeing what you do for a living, a lot of "rules" are not meant for you.

    Tuesday, with a seeming return of late summer (certainly temperature-wise, in NYC), hence today's attire. Choice of footwear was the direct influence of GMMcl, whose choice of footwear for his fit for yesterday inspired mine today.

    Suit - BB
    Shirt, tie & shoes - Tyrhwitt
    Cufflinks - Penhaligon's
    PS - Alain Figaret
