    Sadly no :(
    I got it years back from B&S I think.
    I went full bad-taste-tastic and rocked matching cufflinks :hide:

    Unplugged for a while. Felt good. Sometimes it's nice to step away from the LED.

    Was hoping for new smileys on the new site but :fu:

    It's really amazing to see those who wear slim pants and fit perfectly. Great.
    I don't understand which rules you are breaking - maybe wearing a vest in summer? - but you are a master of combinations!
    I purchaed EG evening shoes from you. :) I am a noob here and I didn't know how famous you are. The jacket is amazing!
    Wow! Eye-popping. I like it a lot!
    The Best I have seen today!
    Oh, I didn't know it was posted. Strange though, after I submitted the post, I couldn't find my post. Yeah, I should have fixed before posting. Sorry about that. Probably not good enough to get love from members. :cry:

    Orphaned suit jacket with denim, maybe? I'm not sure either, but I'm here to learn.

    The "rule" was wearing a pinstripe odd jacket, which is ordinarily a big no no. However, as always, PG shows that GMS works for him no matter the rules. Not like what happens when I break the rules and come out looking like an avocado was trying to hump a banana in an orange tree :lol: Also, PG is in Australia, where it is winter, hence the vest.

    ^^ No pin/chalk stripe odd jackets...they always look like orphaned suit coats, that said, I'm not sure where this guide line came from?
    There's at least one old esquire/apparel arts illustration/ article about travel suits that has a bold striped suit being split into separates, so it wasn't always the case?
    Thanks for the compliments on yesterdays fit, the tie was a Panta from one of Ed's earlier runs

    I see. I didn't know that. Now I feel a little shame about the fact that I have put on a pinstripe odd jacket often and even today. :embar: Many thanks.

    ^^ to be sure, it's a good rule of thumb as it usually looks frankly ridiculous. But like most rules of thumb, I don't think it should be hard and fast.

    Seeing several people posting suits in that off-navy shade of blue is really tempting me to consider one. Is yours a herringbone weave?


    Two good looks from all-too-rare posters in the thread these day. The Prada shirt is especially nice.

    Tie was tough to get the right color, but it's a royal purple, same as the socks.

    Last night was terrific. Took the missus out to dinner and then to the Strathmore for an evening with the Fab Faux. Highly recommended: http://www.classicalmysterytour.com/. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

    Ready to go:

    Looking good Thread.

    I also bought those Emma Willis ties from hikari013 (orange, teal, blue, purple) they are great! Highly recommended. Wore the teal one yesterday and had two compliments on it before I even reached the office door.
