    Thanks for the thumbs last week. Drew things back a bit today -- cold(er), wind and rain. [​IMG] (Trousers could, indeed, use a slight slimming.)

    I feel exactly the same way - picked up some really cheap suede and it makes me happy not to worry too much about them. Also, I find Herring to be great guys to deal with, I've had a few pairs from them over the last couple of years.

    How do you find the fit on the AS? I only have one pair and I don't really know much about the lasts - mine are only just wide enough in the toe, yet surprisingly broad in the heel in comparison. Near enough for the price I paid, but I'd be interested to know how yours compare to others you have.

    I really like that, Don. The clean, sharp, simple jacket is flattering I think, and the trousers are a great fit and style for you. The whole thing really works - nice tie and the shoes are the perfect accompaniment I think.

    I went to the movies tonight and saw "Rush". It was pretty good. I wore a suit throughout, felt no need to loosen my tie even while fully reclined in my comfy seat and sipping my milkshake. I did remove my jacket for most of the actual movie, but was sure to put it on as soon as the lights started coming up again. Is this wrong?

    Heck yes. Took the words right out of my keyboard. There is nothing brings an overall appearance down faster than nasty shoes, in my book. Or a novelty tie. But I think the fact that both rank together says enough.

    Well, yes, but also dinner.

    Beautiful tie, GMMcL.

    I suppose if you're coming from the office it makes more sense, but the idea of wearing a coat and tie to a movie strikes me as a bit odd and decidedly anachronistic.

    OK, I hadn't actually been home after work, so you're right. But I do think it's nice to wear a jacket and tie just for its own sake sometimes. I mean, we're all regency revivalists really, aren't we?

    I think if anachronisms offend you, you might be preaching in the wrong church. [​IMG]

    This is a fantastic response and very astute--only from a psychiatrist (which you are, if I remember correctly [sic]), natch! Thing is, I reckon you could make it look more modern by maybe a black knit tie or the like (maybe, a brown knit tie and brown, suede chukkas--depending on whether the stripes are pink or purple). I'm not entirely sure what I would use; it may be one of those times you need to see it to know, but it is a great suit, and I would wear that shit always! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Situational awareness and a realistic approach is something I have long espoused on these fora. However, given the usual attempts in MC Casual, it seems to be a losing proposition. And while I agree a tie and coat are nice from time to time, it still strikes me as odd that you would choose to wear formal attire to a dark theater made for relaxing. But whatever makes you happy, I suppose.

    Personally, I think I would find it uncomfortable to wear a tie at a movie. Tho I never tried, so I can't say for sure.

    If it was just a movie, I almost certainly would have eschewed the tie. But, for various reasons, I like to wear a tie when dining out with the Wifey, despite living in a city where wearing closed-toed shoes is akin to donning formal wear.

    Thanks. It's by Faconnable. I got it on sale from Park and Bond. Remember that place?

    Thanks. They're PRL from eBay.

    Love the birdseye suit, GMMcL. What watch are you wearing there?

    I think the tie is too dark for the rest of the outfit. Sometimes you have to just stop trying on clothes and go to work though. I think navy pants world have worked better.

    Very nice. Dig the tie.

    I don't think it is a problem, but rather than change the tie maybe try a square that is darker than the shirt but lighter than the tie? Just a thought.

    Great piece! It's really interesting how different the cut is from your Fallan and Harvey's odd jacket. The shoulders are stronger (wider, more roped and extended), the chest seems to be cleaner, the coat is a bit longer, the buttoning point is lower, the lapels thinner. It's an interesting cut and I think that you wore it well. I think that a cream square, not necessarily a solid, would make this fit even better for me.
