    @Pembers,

    Considering what you paid, that's quite good. Were the shoes included in the £50?

    Not a big fan of the tie. A bit "loud" for the generally accepted Style Forum aesthetic.

    Thanks for the reply, Southbound. Yep, shoes included in the £50. They'd been worn once when I bought em.

    As for the tie, I see what you mean - although I do think it's nice (especially up close). I find that the high-quality ties that appear cheap on ebay and in local chariy shops tend to be quite loud though; I've been looking for a solid black or navy grenadine for ages. Given greater resources, I'd go for a very understated look most of the time, I think.

    I do have similar pants, but they are not a suit. The jacket was RL, the pants are Zanella. I wonder how that would look together though... :embar:


    ORLY?

    No way, you're taller than I and about the same weight?! That would make you thinner. Weird... and you wear size 38/40 while I wear 36/38? Are you sure you're not underestimating your weight?

    Swear to you man. Just got on the scale this morning. I was 175 about 2 months ago, but I just lost 10 pounds, so I would say I am a solid 38 for the moment.

    I hate that tie, Pembers, but that's mostly because it's the kind of thing I used to wear before my SF conversion experience. I respectfully request that you post slightly larger images in the future so that us old folks don't have to fetch our reading glasses in order to offer a critique.

    Get a navy grenadine RIGHT NOW from Kent Wang or Sam Hober. Disregard the cost. You will wear it frequently and you will have it the rest of your life.

    Yes! Thank you for that! I started a thread recently, wondering if I should buy an odd jacket exactly like yours. I was going to wear it with dark jeans. I ended up buying it, it's in the mail. I can see that I was right and it can be done. I will DTO this, if you don't mind, since I was intending to wear a combo like that anyway. :happy:


    Just stepped on the scales; they showed 162 lbs. I am 5'10". I suppose it makes sense... especially because I'm heavier in the legs and butt and smaller in the upper body. I suppose I should start looking forward to your sales again. :nodding:

    I'll seriously consider it, would really love one.

    In the meantime, I'll post a fit wth a more sombre tie tomorrow...not that I don't stand by the green one. :)

    Cheers gents! I'm really loving this whole linen thing and being primarily an autumn guy this surprises me and at the same time bums me out as in a month or two I'm going to have to moth ball all my new linen for another 10 months :censored:

    Wouldn't wear it to an office on a bet, unless I was a music executive in the Brill Building circa 1962. THAT said, it is groovy beyond belief...slick and makes an amazing statement for an evening out. And the "After" is a huge improvement over the "Before" proof that accessories can completely transform a suit.
