    I'm not an expert on SuitSupply, you might try in this thread. But maybe that model is only available in Europe.

    I......dunno....shirt and tie match so closely, kinda hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. Would it be possible to slim and shorten the trousers a bit, to give the appearance of longer legs? I use this method a lot, myself.

    Ha ha ha! It's looks like a train wreck in the picture, but I assure you that the tie and shirt are clearly defined in living color. I have not had this suit tailored yet. The waist needs 1" of trimming, and as such the pants are sliding down. It still does have more break than I'd like when properly positioned though. It's hard to find a flattering cameraman in a room full of biologists!

    That shirt is not meant to be worn with ties (at least, it isn't should its makers have any sense of responsibilty). A color that vivid, you'd be hard pressed to find a nice tie able to provide sufficient contrast.

    That tie is....errrmmm....well looking past the merits of that tie, there isn't enough contrast, though I can see where the shirt ends and the tie begins.

    This isn't a time. Not with bright blue/French blue shirts. Not since 1997. Unless you're Donald Trump. Even in that case, really, Donny, you can do better.

    To paraphrase Vox, I went traipsing around a major metropolitan area dressed like an extra in All Creatures Great And Small today.

    I'm partial to the Hirst piece, but not generally a skulls man. :) I do appreciate your looking out for me, though!

    I might start rocking bow ties when I wear these tweed jackets. And yes, I have this donegal tweed jacket and another harris tweed jacket that were both made in the 70's. I think they beg for bow ties.

    An excellent example of how life is better without denim.

    SC.

    Indeed!
    They always stare at my beard. I'm sure that if I went out without trousers, they would keep staring at it as well.

    LMBO! I am early in the process of building my business wardrobe, and ties and shirts are trailing the suits at this time. I'm probably the only one in my office who wears a suit once or twice a week, and my off-hours consists of farm and more farm work. It's going to be a slow process, but I'm having a lot of fun with the trial and failure! Thanks.

    I was in a hurry and took the pic before wearing the jacket (charcoal tweed).
    Have a nice day.

    Really, really love this fit. So simple, but so well executed. I suppose those are chinos, not jeans?

    And thanks for all the thumbs and nice comments for my last fit.

    Here is a very basic one:

    Thanks!

    @Sander: Yes they are chinos (Rugby University Chinos in Light Khaki)

    Ah, just noticed the cuffs. This kind of cuff would have been quite strange on jeans. But I would have liked the fit with jeans a lot too, I don't think life without denim is better at all.
