    Thanks! The closeup is a bit overexposed, but the suit is gray, not navy as it appears to me in the f'length shot.

    Also, this is one of my larger (tubular) suits that ianiceman says I always wear. So there's that.

    Lol

    Noted. But I was kinda hoping it was blue. Would love a properly exposed pic of the actual color.

    Agreed. The blue looks very nice. I think that either way, it's a thorough, well balanced outfit that works well.

    Hmm... I must be confused between the type of silk and where it is made. Can you explain the difference?

    Also is the shirt you wore white or ecru?

    Thanks, very happy with my purchase. Except for the customs I got hit with yesterday.

    Good ideas both, thanks!

    It is quite warm here, but I wouldn't go sockless for three reasons: 1) I feel a little odd not wearing socks in January, 2) my house is quite chilly (for LA) in the morning so I always end up dressed a little warmer than necessary for that day's weather and 3) I would not feel comfortable going sockless in my office despite it's lack of strict dress code.

    It is an 80/20 blend of cashmere and goat hair from Sartoria Partenopea that I thrifted it a few weeks back.

    Another day at the office in a Leading Co. (H.K.) bespoke suit, Orvis shirt, Bagutta tie, Nunn Bush shoes because of the snow and salt.

    Orvis? You mean the angling company Orvis? Either way the collar looks a bit flimsy, needs a bit more stiffness for a CBD kind of look IMO.

    Today. A lot of brown and a lot of Argyll and Sutherland Highlander. Double cardi party. The big one is old school Abercrombie. I think another color shirt would have been better, but it's all I had. I need to do laundry badly.

    Yup Orvis the fly fishing store. They did make some nice clothing in the day, such as this shirt. Unfortunately, the collar is 1/2" too small, but it wore it anyway because I was running late. How annoying. It fit well several years back! It will be sent to the Island of Misfit Shirts.

    btw - What does CBD stand for? A man's got to know what look he's after....[​IMG]

    Excessive like brown pants, cardigan, tie and shoes and A&SH cardigan, watch strap and socks. I feel you, but I think of the top one as outerwear and the other one as more of just a sweater. The top one is too heavy and warm to wear once I got in doors.

    u have some nice repps YRR.. but a repp like that with navy (blazer?) should take a quieter square.
    Patterned square + tie in a 2 pattern fit is sub-optimal- esp when they're so colorful.

    That was one of my guesses, but I was going with Cool Blue Dude.

    Interesting. Only picked up in it being a fly fisherman myself. So looking at it again, taking away the collar, I think you'd benefit also from a bit less yellow there, swap the shirt for light blue. Yellow ties don't get a lot of love here, though personally I don't have anything against them, they always sell pretty slowly when I do them.

    I assumed that’s how you’re thinking of it.

    I’m not expressing an opinion on the ensemble, but I will observe that it helps your argument that:

    (1) The inside sweater is about the proper length for a waistcoat and you wear it like one, with the lowest button unbuttoned; and

    (2) The outer sweater is about the right length for a sport coat, and even has pockets very approximately where a sport coat would (it would strengthen the analogy if it also had a chest pocket …).

    Cheers,

    Ac
