    I was mostly trying to figure out if I could pull it off with a jacket tomorrow without looking like a total dweeb because it's not going to be cold enough for a jacket.

    Also, thanks :)

    SVB, there are very few here who will be able to appreciate and love that tie. There are very few that will accept the context for this long lived look, regarless of its place in the sartorial history. I however, am one of them.

    I really think any shade of grey or khaki/beige/light brown will work. Try a different tie, maybe something solid so the jacket does all the talking. Try a white or light blue OCBD and a knit or textured wool.

    Also, you may want to consider running your photos through something like photo bucket to get the true colors out, I bet that jacket is something special IRL.

    Love the breast patch pocket on that, AAS. Nice stuff.

    Of course it's ridiculous to wear stuff like this in a climate where it's always 30C or more, but sometimes I just miss those wintery textures too much. Besides, I'm always in AC-ed environments anyway... [​IMG] [​IMG] Trousers are from the time that I still followed the advice that short men shouldn't wear cuffs. Of course, thanks to SF I know better now. Actually all of this stuff is really old, haven't bought winter clothes in years.

    I think many of us know how I feel about patterned trousers.

    It is, but since I wear suits so rarely, I try to get them with jackets that can also function as an odd jacket. Stripes, handsome as those are, would make it difficult. Probably going to get something medium weight in some sort of textured medium dark blue wool.

    They are from Meermin. Much below your price level. :D

    Seriously though, they've got some very nice loafers.

    Forgot to reply regarding the PS. I did wear one but was not happy with it so I ditched it for the photo. As a chef you should not serve what not belongs on the plate. I will try another square next time.

    Here it is. [​IMG]

    I second that. The tie is pretty ridiculous, but I would wear it! I do have a penchant for slightly silly ties at times, which I like to wear to balance out the more 'classic' ties in my collection.

    I like the suit too. I haven't liked your other fits so much, maybe it is just the angle or the pose, but this one looks good. Only thing I'm not sure about are the trousers. And / or the boots.

    End of the week, and a new bow tie, from Seigo, a shop at Madison and 90th St., which sells virtually nothing but neckties, all imported from Japan, in every color and pattern imaginable. A very useful place if you're looking for a solid tie in a specific color, or something unusual in a pattern, or a bow tie (they've several different widths and profiles available).

    Both the use of the trousers and the mixing of textures were very much inspired by some of your fits, Sir.
