    In light of past couple of pages, I must say that, personally, I find this thread at its least enjoyable when it moves into the arcana of what styles are suitable for the thread and what are not. But then, I still think that this the thread was at its most interesting when it was one with the SW&D thread, before the Great (Forum) Schism.



    Anyway, new suit today (Suitsupply Napoli); bought a few weeks or so ago but the first time I've got round to wearing it post-tailoring. I also have a slightly narrower navy pinstripe suit in a heavier material and technically, this one was bought to be more for summer as it's a lighter weight compared to some of the other items I've been wearing recently, but as the weather is fairly mild, it'll do good duty as a shoulder-season item when paired in a somewhat more autumnal way e.g. with this tie's colours. Mild the weather may be, but resolutely overcast too, so apologies for the grainy, over-adjusted photo:

    Those are pretty nice-looking trousers Timo, details?

    Thanks for all the thumbs on yesterday's fit. I felt dead-tired this morning (not all that surprising with a three-week old in the house) and couldn't muster anything but the most basic outfit. When in doubt, just go with the classics, I guess :)

    Nice coat, Tirailleur. Have you thought of swapping the buttons for something more interesting?

    It's going to be in the 80's this afternoon, and it's October in NYC - the weather's schizo, so shouldn't my attire be as well? :satisfied:

    Agree, though I struggle to find a blue that's not that greenish-blue (sky) but rather greyish/pale. Yours looks great, is it RTW or custom made?

    I see. Color Me Badd was on your early playlist right?

    Based on this, I would say that you are absolutely in the wrong forum if you are actually looking for advice. People will try to push you towards ancient madder ties and gently rolled button down collars. There is a peacock thread, and also streetwear. You may get some better, ahem less classic, feedback there. My 2 cents.

    EDIT: Oh, and THANKS FOR ALL THE THUMBS YESTERDAY!!
    Agree. And I took the same weather-defying approach myself -- though mine is partially driven by the fact that the SC will sell on Ebay this week, and I wanted to use it one last time.. Love the shoes, Crust. [​IMG]

    When I made the pics I get in conversation with a professionel photograph, who was so friedly and made some pics of me with his equipment. In the evening I post this as bonus and I think you can see the importance of the quality of the pics for the evaluation of a fit.

    Very nice. Luxire?

    Time to bust out the cashmere! Shoes are much darker brown than they look on the last two pics.

    Hey, you ought to, they're the fraternal twins of the shoes you wore yesterday. :) Seeing them with the dark blue vamp almost makes me wish that Tyrwhitt had them on display in that model when I was in the Jermyn St. store last May - it would have been interesting to compare them side-by-side.

    Rudals: IMO I don't think the suit is bad at all, I would use another tie and I, it's a preference of mine, don't like to wear blue with black. But the suit doesn't look bad.

    Donuts: Great, great tie!

    Monkeyface: Fantastic jacket!

    I meant to ask G-Mac about his shoes; thought they might be the Barker Cambridge. I have something similar en route, though not that one.

    Rudals, I think that suit is so bright and in-your-face that it's the perfect counterbalance for that red tie. The whole thing is far from subtle, but it's fuck-you consistent. I think if you're in a bold mood, it rather suits you. Especially for national holidays. ;)
